    My ABS light is on and the module is running. I went under the truck and dis connected the module wires. Now the traction control light stays on, as well as the ABS light. The part is very expensive, so I've been driving without ABS brakes and traction control. Is there a more cost effective fix.

    Just unplug the fuse, you'll maintain traction control and save your battery. If you replace the fuse, the Electro-Hydro-Cont-Unit will run and you will have ABS.

    Just remove the fuse. You can put it in when you go for a grive. Or get it fixxed.

I hope you have the problem fixed by now, but, it is the ABS control under the truck. You need to go under the hood and open the fuse box and disconnect the 60 amp fuse for the ABS, this will turn it off before it burns up. This however will also cause the traction assist off light to stay lit all the time. To the fix the problem you can pay tons of money ($700 or so) to have the dealership install a ABS control and the problem will happen again over time. Or, remove it yourself, go on ebay and ship it off to a guy who repairs them for about $150 and you will never have the problem again. Also, if you wrap your cable ends with plastic and protect them good, you can still drive you truck while the part is being worked on. It takes about a week.

2001 chevy venture van the brake pedal is soft and it goes down to the floor is it the m/c or the abs unit


The symptom you have is caused by a defective Master cylinder. Bench bleed the master before installing to keep air out of the ABS hydraulic control unit, if air gets in the unit the car will need to bleed of air using a special tool at the dealer. Do not get brake fluid on any painted surfaces or in your eyes, use proper safety gear. Only use special tubing Flare nut wrenches on the brake line fittings or you will round them off. Making up new lines is a whole other thing that requires special skills and tools.

ABS light on. Abs pump continues to run after engine shutoff. Where is the 60 amp fuse, so I can remove and continue to use my 2001 Chevy Tahoe. Also, can I get the abs module fixed instead of having to...


The fuse should be in the under hood fuse panel.The other thing you can do is disconnect the power wire to the ebcm.The ebcm is located on the passengers side below the drivers door area.Just unplug the 2 wire connector.It is the red and a black wire.About 10 gauge.The top part of this unit is the electronic brake control module and it is the cause of the motor running continuously.The problem is that water gets in to this and shorts out the unit.There are only 4 torx screws that hold this on but they are not easy to get at and sometimes they strip.I believe it is a number 20 torx bit.Hope this helps.Good luck.

a special tool is required to hold the ABS hydraulic control unit popit valves open during bleeding of the brakes, without this special tool you will not be able to get the air out of the system, most good brake shops have this tool or of course the local Chevy dealer or GMC dealer. I am a dealer tech and know this information is correct..

Anti lock brake pump always running and noisy


If the ABS pump continues to run, the most common cause is a leak in the hydraulic control unit. The pump may continue to run in order to to try to maintain operating pressure. Also a malfunction in the pump, stuck valves and devective accumulators are possible causes. A shorted pressure switch may also cause this condition.

2001 Chevy Silverado anti-lock brakes activate on dry pavement, the pedal pulsates, the typical anti-lock brake sound is heard, and the truck feels like it is not going to stop at times


One of the sensors has gone bad and needs to be replaced, the other thing to that would also do that is the ABS sensor is dirty or needs to be re gaped to the speed ring on the hub. There was a issue bulletin with your Tahoe on the ABS activating under 8 km/h. Good luck and hope this helps, if not clean out the sensor with brake parts cleaner and check the wire harness and ABS sensor bracket. Re gap the sensor to the speed ring hub. Here is the bulletin. Anti lock Brake (ABS) Activation at Low Speeds (Clean Wheel Speed Sensor Mounting Surface) #03-05-25-007C - (05/16/2006) 2001-2006 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe

Abs sensor light wont go off my 2005 polo


Your ABS systems use a combination of electronic and hydraulic systems to modulate the brakes individually to prevent them from locking up. ANTILOCK systems consist of wheel speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit (HCU), and an electronic control unit (ECU). Because of how complex the system is your computer does a self-test. If the check is successful, the ANTILOCK and BRAKE lights will go out within a few seconds. If one of the component of the ABS system fails to pass one or both lights will remain lit. One or both warning lights may also come on while driving, also indicating a problem. If just the ANTILOCK warning light comes on, some ABS component has failed, but the car still has hydraulic brakes. The grinding noise could the the ABS pump or your brake pads could to worn to the metal backing and grinding against the brake rotors. I recommend a inspection soon for your safety.

2001 Mercury Grand Marquis brake and ABS dash lights on and off


The red brake light is the key here. That usually indicateds a hydraulic problem. Check you fluid level in master cylinder and see if it is low. Also the level indicator sensor there in the master cylinder maybe sticking or corrioded. If ABS sees the red brake light it will shut off and turn on the ABS light,also traction control would be disabled as well.
