Re: 1997 S10 Antilock light comes on
Has there been any break work done to it lately? It could be one of the break sensors malfunctioning. or the abs needs to be reset. I have never tried this, but a friend of mine had a problem somewhat simmler to yours, he took the neg. battery cable off for about 5 minutes and hooked it back up and solved his problem. I can't say that will solve yours but its worth a shot and it don't cost anything.

"ani brake light"??? Do you mean Antilock Brake light? If the antilock brake warning lamp is illuminating while driving under normal driving conditions, then you probably have a malfunction in your antilock brake system. You must scan your antilock brake control module to find out why it has been illuminating the light. Wheel speed sensor malfunctions are a common cause of the symptoms you are describing, but you cannot be sure if that is what is causing it, or which one is causing the problem without scanning the controller and performing proper diagnosis.
your antilock brakes are activating. i would suspect one of your wheel speed sensors is acting up. (showing 0 mph while moving). need to get a scanner on it and monitor the wheel speed sensors, suspect you will see one reading 0 usually at lower speeds.
Hi take the front brake rotors off and then remove the ABS WSS(wheel speed sensor) from the hub bearing clean the rust/corrosion from under the sensor and the hub bearing then apply a small amount of grease reinstall your sensors (carefull not to break the sensor they break easy) reassemble the brakes that should fix your ABS concern
Call the dealership. I seem to remember that Pontiac had a recall for this problem just recently where the antilock brake system would lock op and the system caused people to get into accidents. This is a manufacture defect
