    I had that problem last year, so in March, I brough the car in and needed bran new wheel bearing, (cost me $1200.00 in the end). The thing is, as soon as it snowed again this year, the lights all came back on again. It's only been 9 months since I bought new bearing. Someone said something like, there is a switch or something that freezes and pops out, which can cause the lights to all come on. I am just worried, that I am going to get ripped off by a repair shop.

Hey check wheel bearings. I was told that this is a sign that they are going bad. or there is a wire runs to the back of the wheel that may short out.

03 chevy 4x4 how do you bleed the abs?replaced all lines and bled with truck off.good pedal til start up then lost all.guy at auto store said abs needs bled.thanks

Have a look on this link below:
chevy abs bleeding Google Search

In particular a Youtube video:

Bleeding the ABS Brake Control Module On Chevy Using Snap On Solus Ultra
Sometimes it can be a nightmare bleeding the brakes. There seems to be problem after problem or no progress, irrespective of how many times you bleed them. Just a few weeks ago I had the same problem on a 4 litre Jeep.

Have a look on those two links. You obviously know how to bleed brakes and will pick up a tip or two online.

I was in the same position as you - hard pedal until start up after a brake overhaul. I wouldn't like to think how many times I bled the braking system everywhere and nothing worked. Eventually on a Jeep forum somebody suggested changing the brake compensator valve. I did .. and the brakes worked perfectly.

Read a few websites first. You'll het there in the end.

ABS warning light on

abs is the ant block brakes system. it helps by preventing you from blocking your wheels when you jump on the brakes.(blocked wheels dont steer. they go straight regardless of steering wheel input from you). the warning light warns you that there is a problem with this system. usually a wheel sensor is broken ( there is one on each wheel). the brakes will still work. but you do not have the abs systems help

Sevice abs light code 63 91' vette

So is your ABS light on? Computer won't hold a code for the ABS light. There's 4 sensors one at the back of each wheel one of them is bad. As longs as your brakes are working normally you can at your time to fix it. ABS was made for panic stops only thats why the pedal pumps fast when you stop hard.
