Disconnect the battery negative with the ignition key on and the engine not ON, only instruments on dash and radio on, connect it back on after two or four minutes, do not panic if You see sparks coming when you connect Battery back is normal, *** it well turn key OFF and start the car back an see, if problem remains, with key on press accelerator pedal 10 times fast and check if problem remains, contact dealer

Do 2004 grand am's have anti lock brakes?

probably. when you turn on the ignition, you should see a bulb check for all warning systems; abs should be one of them. the light is almost always yellow and will say "abs". also, if you look at the brake lines at the master cylinder and they go into a big aluminium block with a big harness connection on it, that's your abs controller.

Service eng light,abs light,trac control light all stay on

sounds like possibly one of the sensor connections is disconnected possibly when oil was changed maybe one of the plug ins were knocked off or partailly disconnected, check all plug ins under hood most likely a plug in on the abs unit under the hood,(usually has lines running to the master cylinder) possbly plug in onthe master cylinder also.

Abs light and trac control light stay lit

most times it is a sensor that is located around the brake area that needs replaced. Changing brakes will not fix abs light..ABS stands for anti brake system and has nothing to do with replacing brakes or rotors. It pervent your brakes from locking up and causing you to loose control of car. hope this helps and good luck and please rate this post....

Light's on DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the ABS control module . Sorry but , your best bet ,take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop , before you hurt yourself.

Abs light and brake warning lights on no power brakes

You have a problem with your master cylinder/Brake Booster or you have lost vacum to the master cylinder. Before doing this repair I highly recommend you get the Haynes Repair manual on your vehicle from the local auto parts store.

Brake fluid is not getting to the rear brakes. The master cylinder is working. I do not know if the ABS is working, probably not since the ABS warning light is on in the dash. Could the proportioning valve...

there more than likely air in the abs system and there should be bleeders on the abs module try bleeding the abs system first then once you have good fluid there then bleed the rear brakes again
