Hey, it should be able to be reset. I have a 2005 Chevy cobalt and Ihad the same problem but my manual told me how to clear it up, so you should check in the manual to see how.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy Tahoe with ABS & Brake light on.

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.

Once the ABS light is on there is a problem with the ABS system. You can't really guess with this stuff. Also it becomes a safety issue when abs light is on the ABS system is in-operable. Here is my advice take your vehicle to any AUTO-ZONE store and they will check for FREE and let you know why this light is on it could be anything form abs sensors(wheel sensors) or something like that, they are four of them one in each wheel so make sure to get exact info as to what is the exact code and meaning. Good Luck feel free to contact t me if ou need more info

SOURCE: 2001 chevy s10 blazer abs light stays .

The abs is a add on for the brakes that when the tires come into a skid or slid they wont lock up..Your brakes will still work great with the abs disabled but your brakes will lock up if you push on the brakes hard enough to stop.Mainly abs works in slippery conditions not letting the tires lock up and keep the car rolling instead of making it slide..But no effect of the brakes will happen..Just make sure your fluid is full and there are no leaks and if you want to get them check you can stop by your local Auto Zone and they will scan your car for free and tell you what sensor is bad..I hope this was helpful to you...Have a great night

SOURCE: 2001 Impala No trac and ABS light on. Is this a

In the hub-bearing assembly (the part that the tire bolts on to and allows with tire to spin) there are sensors, they can and do fail. Also the wiring and connections can fail also. The only consequences of this problem being not fixed is that the ABS will not work (the breaks won't "pulse" when you start to skid) but you will still have breaks they will just work like regular conventional breaks that can lock the wheels, like in the cars of yore. Traction control will not work either, neither are serious but annoying. And the obvious the "service traction system" message will come up in the info box, the "traction off" light will be on and the "abs" light will be on. My dad's 02 impala has the same problem. A gm computer scanner can diagnose where the culprit lies. Good luck -Mike

SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram 2500 abs light stays on and soo doe

I had the same problem and it turned out to be one of the front speed sensors and the rear speed sensor as well. If you get a chance to look at all the speed sensors make sure the wires on the front aren't burnt from hot brakes. I have an 01 3500 4X4 and it was a pain to change the front sensor but the rear sensor took about 5-10 minutes, it's located in the middle of of the rear axle right on top. I bought both of mine on Ebay and cut the price in half.

2005 Chevy impala brake pedal pulsation with brand new rotors installed


Is your ABS working properly? Under heavy braking the ABS should engage and 'pulse' the brakes on/off. It is normal to feel the brake petal flutter or pulse under your foot.

Under light braking there should be no pulsing as the ABS does not engage and you have changed the rotors and pads.
