Question about 2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT
When I start the vehicle, none of the lights come on. Within the first 1/4 mile of driving, you can feel the ABS acting up with a pulsating feel in the brake pedal. Then I get exactly 33 tones and the parking brake, abs, traction control and anti skid lights all come on. The brakes work fine after that. The system resets itself everytime you turn off the engine. Any idea what can be causing this problem?

That "grindy" feeling is when the ABS kicks in. It's only suppose to activate when you slam on the brakes and the wheels would normally lock. Instead, ABS will very quickly pump the brakes on and off, to prevent the wheels from locking (making a giant skid mark) and stopping the car more effectively. Generally this only happens if you slam on the brakes or loose traction due to rain or snow while braking. If this is happening often and the brake light is on, on the dash, then you need to get this checked out by a qualified mechanic ASAP.

it looks like you need to resurface your rotors and bleed your brake lining and adjust rear shoes if applicable and sand front pads before you install them

There is a abs wheel sensor that is on the hubs on these vehicals that should be changed if the light that you are getting comes and goes this happens when the signal from the sensor to the abs system has been interupted you can take it to autozone and have them clear the code for you till you can get this repaired these sensors can cost around 150 to replace ok
