ABS brake system failure

Chevy Suburban 2002 - 2WD w/ tow pkg - ABS system pump is making noise - mech says it has siezed up and needs to be replaced for $1,000 to $2,000 and no assurance this repair will restore the ABS system. We live in coastal so. CA and have never towed anything. Do we need the ABS system to safely drive the vehicle?

    I have a problem with my 98 monte carlo the abs motor pack is bad and my mechanic says its no big deal, you will still have brakes. he also said if you want to replace the motor pack your best bet would be to go to a junk yard and pay 200.00 instead of $1000

In reality its not gonna hurt anything the only reason why they put abs on vehicle is for safety for the driver just in case hard breaking abs help the driver still have steering control..

Why do ABS brakes grab and push air?


hey check ur abs wheel speed sensors. check data when ur moving lf rf and rears should be reading same speed. its probably gonna be a bad wheel bearing cause that where ur speed sensors are built in to. u need a abs scan tool to monitor ur wheel speed parameters in order to pin point ur bad sensor. or pull codes from ur abs module and see what side it says is failing. good luck

Can the ABS system fails on a 1990 Chevy Suburban and that allow the brakes to lock up on it?


If the ABS fails, the brakes will lock up when you brake hard enough to have needed the ABS system to engage. The ABS works by sending a pulsing action through the brake system when you brake hard enough to lock up the wheels.
In the old days before ABS we used to have to pump the brake pedal to achieve a pulse in an attept to keep from locking up and sliding. The old way of doing it is no where near as effective as modern ABS.
You should never pump the brake pedal on a vehicle that is equipped with ABS. If your ABS has failed, yours and others safety is at risk. Get it fixed ASAP.

I know nothing about cars but my ABS just activated on my 2001 Chevy Suburban. Cut ignition off and motor still running. Happened in 2005 also, cost $1500 to fix. Is there anything I can do so I can drive...


Remove the ABS maxi-fuse (Large fuse) located in the under hood electrical center. In the event you cannot locate that fuse, you can unplug the ABS pump two wire connector at the ABS pump motor located under the vehicle.
Good luck

2001 Suburban ABS motor staying on after ignition is off


what you have is a ABS module that has shorted out internally. you have to replace that module and then bleed the ABS pump AND the brakes at all wheels.

I purchased a 2004 chevy van yesterday, the brake light and ABS light both stay on. Not much brake pedal, goes almost to floor but seems to stop van good. Is it possible its just air in the syatem? If so...


I have had the ABS light come on and stay on on a 2000 Suburban and a 2003 suburban. In both instances the brake system was fine. If you have not done so I would recommend you have the system checked for codes. If there are no error codes and the system is functioning properly the problem with the light staying on can be solved simply. Or at least I hope this solves your problem.

There is a small ground wire that is secured to the top rear of the engine block. It is on the passenger side of the engine. To find it remove the engine cover and reach back to locate the connection. Over time the ground connection gets compromised by dirt, grease, or corrosion. You need to unbolt this connection, clean the surfaces and re-install. On a friend's truck I just reached back and twisted the connection to seat it better and the lights have not come back on.

It sounds too simple but if it works it is much better that giving money to the dealer or a mech to solve the problem.
