    Sorry, it's not the abs light it is the engine light that is staying on. Advance Auto is saying that I now need a cataylic converter. I swear they have bout broke me since last feb. 2012 what a year of constant repairs. I'm not sure they know what they are talking about.

    No, sorry but your advise was off the radar due to my putting the wrong info. on here. Like I stated the guys at the Advance Auto store have told me my 1997 chevy s10 pickup now needs a cataylic converter. I'm really not sure if they even know what they're talking about or they are just nickle and dime'n me to death. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You of all of you.

One of the wheel cylinders is leaking, pulling air back into brake system and it's going back to the4 master cylinder. Look for brake fluid leaking at one of the wheel cylinders, that's where the problem is.

There is probably a problem with you anti lock brake system. Have it checked at your local dealership. Brakes are a problem that should never be let go.

Hi, it sounds like you have two different issues. 1st, the ABS, and brake lights are coming on due to a fault code in the ABS. This would need to be read by a scanner capable of reading chassis codes. It could be a wheel speed sensor issue, but there are a few to choose from. A readout from a scanner should point you in the right direction. Meanwhile, your ABS will be inactive, but you should retain your base braking system. As far as the leak, it sounds like a possible back up of water condensation, from the a/c sytem, leaking into the vehicle. This could be as simple as a plugged drain at the engine side of the firewall (below passenger foot area). Check the rubber drain tube for restriction.Thanks...

The oxygen sensor is located in the flow of exhaust and there will be two. the first is at the exit of the exhaust manifold where the head pipe attaches before the converter and the other is just after the cat converter.
