Question about 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche

2 Answers

2002 Chevy Avalanche ABS kicks in at low speed braking.

The ABS kicks in almost every time at low speeds on dry gound. If you didnt konw this was going to happen you would rear end people all the time. I know other people have this problem and I have yet to hear about a solution.

Maybe a wheel bearing gone bad so sensor reads different speed causing the computer to think wheel is slipping then abs kicks in I have seen this problem with a 2002 gmc 2500 duramax diesel

ABS seems to kick back on brake peddle at slow speeds


low speed activation of abs[will not set off code ] can also do brake studder without touching brake usually does it under 5 mph the problem is one of the sensors is dirty or has some corrosion on it ===chevy back in 2000 did a partial recall on the tahoe for the same problem the fix was to remove the sensor and clean it if the corrosion was to bad than sensor was replaced === the problem with no code is u dont know which sensor is causing problem u would need to remove both and check them

60% of the time when applying the brakes the abs system kicks in and makes the weird noise and hinders braking


A shop will need to check the wheel speed sensors, maybe one is reading "0" and the ABS thinks the wheel is locking up, when its not.

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.

Abs malfunctioning


Sounds like you have a speed sensor with excessive air gap between the sensor and the pick-up wheel. These are usually sealed in the hubs. Check all you hub assemblies for excessive play. Excessive air gap will cause overactive ABS function.

2002 Rendezvous, brakes feels like the ABS are working on snow, b


you may want to have someone look at your wheel speed sensors
the may not be reading correctly

if the computer see's that the wheel speed of the two axles are not in sequence when your braking this may cause the abs to kick in and it goes the same when your accelerating but the traction control comes into play(TC)

2002 2WD CHEVY TAHOE ABS


Its possible that right wheel speed sensor is dropping out early making the truck think that wheel is locking up. That will activate the ABS and let the brake go on the right wheel which will make the vehicle pull slightly left. The only way to know for sure is to watch the wheel speeds on a scanner and see which one is drpping out first and replacing that speed sensor/bearing assembly.

good Luck

ABS


Sounds like a bad ABS sensor in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.

hope this helps

Abs light on and traction light off


Dear Customer,

if you getting some noise like small twittering than its genuine at high speed braking,

or if you get more noise like hammering once a time in braking tahn you have to check your brake couplers that having some crack or some unbalancing ,
