SOURCE: ABS light on after replacing the front and rear brake pads .

u will need to check the wheel speed sensors behind the brake rotors to see if they got damaged or disconnected during the brake job, as long as the ABS light is on the Anti-lock brake system is disabled, regular braking without the need of ABS will feel fine.

SOURCE: no brake pressure

There IS one place it can still leak. behind the brake master cyl - into (inside) the power brake vaccum booster, although that doesn't seem the problem. You first need to make sure your master cyl is bench bled. with a hose bleeder kit, you can bench bleed in-car. you should be able to bleed sys through abs sys with no problem. Sounds like the master cyl needs to be re-bled.

SOURCE: Brake pedal still goes to floor 2000 GMC Jimmy

It's very possible to be the master cylinder, the o-rings on the piston could be worn, letting the fluid seep back through instead of getting full pressure through the lines. Could also be the brake booster.
Try changing the master cylinder first, which is cheaper and easier, and see if there is a difference, you'll need to bleed the brakes again.
To check the booster,
With the engine off, pump the brakes until the pedal is hard, then hold pressure on the brake pedal and listen for air escaping, or the pedal goes slowly to the floor, Do that after the master cylinder has been changed, at least that will be eliminated.

SOURCE: ABS Problem in my 2000 Jimmy 4x4

the best way to diagnose this problem would be with a scan tool while driving and watching the speed sensors, or check all your wheel tone rings make sure there are no cracks and they are clean, also have the computer scaned for abs codes there should be a code that may tell you which wheel speed sensor is acting up,you can also check the wiring, these seem to chaf the wiring by the control arm .a bad wheel bearing may also cause this problem, i would start with a scan of the abs system,good luck.

Under the hood there should be a fuse box, it's going to be one of the big fuses, had the same problem, 01 Tahoe. Found out it was a front bearing assembly. I replaced and it works fine now. Be carful as you will have no abs once fuse is pulled and FYI the abs light and break light will stay on as well. Good luck

Abs brake light

I start by cracking the lines at the master cylinder first to ensure that the cylinder is properly primed . Then start at the longest line first working back to the shortest. The abs light sometimes work in conjunction with the traction control unit ( both use the same sensors at the wheels) so have the fault codes read and reset the computer

Need to rest my proportional brake valve on my 1996 sonoma 4x4 I replaced all the brake lines to the ABS, the ABS brake light stays on and I have only less than half the brake fluid flow at the rear

By the sounds of it you need to bleed your brakes the ABS light should go out by itself if this is done unless their is a ABS problem.Remeber when you bleed brakes that have ABS you must have the vehicle running when you bleed them.

Replaced L/F caliper and rear brake line feeding rear brakes. Scanner will not recognize ABS system. Need to bleed brakes and cannot do it manually. 1996 Chevrolet 3500 series/ diesel/ 2wd.

if air has gotten in the abs unit you will need a scanner capable of running pump to bleed out. for starters do a gravity bleed by opening bleeder at caliper to get most air out of system keep it open until fluid drips out and do same at rear. be sure resevoir stays full.

How can I tell if I have abs on my 1996 Dodge dakota the abs and brake light is on and the brakes got spungy.

seeing an abs light is a good clue that you have that feature. Additionally, you will have a far more elaborate set of brake lines and devices attached to the master cylinder than you see on a non-abs vehicle.
