Some generic scanners will not interface with the ABS ECM, do you think you might have damaged the wheel speed sensor while replacing the strut? Test it with a DVOM for 2.5 to 2.8 VAC while someone spins the wheel.

04 deville,abs,pcs,brake light,will not go off after replacing rear air shocks with hydraulic ones.What can be done?


It is very unwise to replace these struts (front or back) with generic shocks!
For example, if you have the road sensing suspension (RSS) option, the struts are computer controlled, and when the computer detects no connection to the strut or a strut problem, you get errors. If this is the case, some folks have terminated the wiring that was removed from the strut with special resistors to fool the computer - check the Cadillac Owners forum for details.
Also, disconnecting the air pump is not wise - more computer errors.
Cadillacs do NOT like aftermarket equipment that does not meet GM specs - a lot less trouble to bite the bullet and just use OEM parts.

Rear Defogger Inoperative, But Heated Mirrors Operate Correctly
1. Connect scan tool. Turn ignition switch to RUN position. Turn rear defogger on. Using scan tool, display BCM
outputs. If rear defogger is being requested on, go to next step. If rear defogger is not being requested on, go to
step 10).
2. Ensure ignition switch is in RUN position. Remove rear defogger relay from rear junction block, located on center
right rear of passenger compartment, under rear seat. Connect test light between ground and defogger relay
harness connector terminal F3 (Brown wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not
illuminate, go to step 11).
3. Connect test light between ground and defogger relay harness connector terminal A2 (Red wire). If test light
illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 12).
4. Connect test light between defogger relay harness connector terminals A2 (Red wire) and B3 (Purple wire). If test
light illuminates, go to step 13). If light does not illuminate, go to next step.
5. Disconnect rear defogger positive and negative feed bus connectors. Connect a jumper wire between defogger
relay harness connector terminals F3 (Brown wire) and A4 (White wire). Connect test light between ground and
positive feed bus connector terminal "A" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not
illuminate, go to step 8).
6. Connect test light between positive feed bus connector terminal "A" (Black wire) and negative feed bus connector
terminal "B" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 9).
7. Repair open in Black wire between rear defogger and ground. Recheck system operation.
8. Repair open in Purple wire between rear junction block and heated backlight antenna module. Recheck system
operation.
9. Check for proper terminal contact at rear defogger connectors. Repair as necessary. Recheck system operation.
10. Check for proper terminal contact at BCM. If terminal contact is okay, replace BCM. Recheck system operation.
11. Repair open in Brown wire between rear junction block and instrument panel junction block. Recheck system
operation.
12. Repair open in Red wire between rear junction block and underhood junction block (located in right front corner of
engine compartment, between battery and strut tower). Recheck system operation.
13. Connect test light between defogger relay harness connector terminals F3 (Brown wire) and A4 (White wire). If
test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 16).
14. Reinstall defogger relay. Disconnect BCM 32-pin Pink connector C2. BCM is located behind right side of instrument
panel, near rear of glove box. Using DVOM, check voltage between ground and BCM harness connector C2
terminal A3 (White wire). If any voltage is present, go to next step. If no voltage is present, go to step 17).
15. Repair open or short to ground in White wire between rear junction block and BCM. Recheck system operation.
16. Check for poor connection at defogger relay terminals. If connections are okay, replace defogger relay. Recheck
system operation.
17. Check for proper terminal contact at BCM. If terminal contact is okay, replace BCM. Recheck system operation.

98 Rodeo - ABS light on all the time, Relay Error?


I had a similare problem. Mechanic found a broken ABS wire connection in the rear left shock area. It did not solve the issue. I pulled out the ABS sensor from the rear diff and found a piece of metal megnetized to it. Removed it and things worked. New mystery about the metal though.....
Eventually I had to redo what the mechanic fixed with the wire connection and I replace the entire harness. Removed it entirely and soldered a cable in between.

I have a 2005 chevy equinox i replace the front rotors and brakes now when you come to a stop the car sounds like the abs system is kicking in


check the connections on the abs, behind the rotor by strut is the connection for the abs if the connector is loose or not properly affixed to the clip it sets off the abs trouble code or low speed saftey usually activates at slow speed under 5 miles an hour the connector and clip are part of the abs circuit--also recheck ur brake pads for binding and brake fluid level --if u get a trouble code have vehicle scanned some auo stores such as auto zone / advanced auto scan for free this will tell u which sensor or unit is causing problem

ABS light on!


Its possible you damaged a rear wheel speed sensor when you did the strut job. If the wire was pulled tight when the strut was removed it could have pulled the copper strands in the wire from the sensor causing a open circuit. This is not uncommon. You need to have the ABS system scanned for codes and see which rear wheel sensor is effected. If you were to just clear the code it will just come back on. With the ABS light on, the ABS system is deactivated and the brake system works normally as a car without ABS.

ABS light is on and Track-Off light is blinking


"ABS light came on and Track-off light started blinking"
This happened after I replaced the rear struts (shock absorbers") It turned out to be the left rear wheel sensor ($156.75). I must have damaged it when I replaced the strut. The way to check the 'rear' sensors is to remove the back seat to gain access to each sensor plug (2 prongs). Unplug it and check for continuity. If there is no continuity then you have a bad sensor, or an unlikely break in one of the wires. I checked for a break in each wire but they were fine.
