On my 94 Chevrolet Corsica (122,000miles) the brake and abs light is on. I had front and rear brake lines replaced a year ago and new brakes and rotors 2 months ago. It is stopping as normal with no issues. The abs light sticks on every once in a while, but goes off after I restart the car. Am I hurting it by driving it? Nothing feels wrong...I've had the brakes go 3 times and everything replaced so I know when it feels wrong.

You need to put a scanner on the ecm/computer for the truck and reset or delete the code in the computer. This is all assuming the broken line has been fixed and the lines bleed. The abs light is for the brake system and there is a valve in the line that when the line breaks it shuts off the line in the front or rear of the truck that has a break in it. You need to be sure the valve is shifted to the center position again and this will usually happen when you bleed the fluid after fixing the line or you will need to replace the valve in the brake line. Hope this helps.
ABS sensor has nothing to do with the restriction of the brake oil supply. It merely tells the ECU whether the wheel is spinning or stopped at all when the car is moving.
- Pull up the ABS diagnostic error codes.
- Brake hose attached to the caliper for swollen or clogged.
- Check brake pipe from the skid control ECU to front wheel.
- Check the caliper assembly.
There is a split valve on the rear brakes ensuring the correct amount of pressure build up compared to the front ones. Check the fluid is pumping through correctly.
There is no need to replace the reluctor rings as you have no ABS error.
Hello! One of the wheel sensors is probably defective ...They back themselves out of their mounting...Or the wheel hub reluctor is rusted...you have a couple of options...Pull the INDIC fuse (10A) from the interior fuse box turning off the light...Power down the EBCM by pulling the PCM/IGN fuse # 5 (30A)...Drive and see if you notice any ill effects...If not, the ABS is disabled...
Wheel Sensors are; Left Front...Right Front...And Rear Axle...Guru...Saailer
Its probably how your bleeding your brakes, but first make sure the bleeding nipples are facing upward. You should bleed diagonaly, front pass wheel then rear driver wheel. Then front driver wheel and rear pass wheel. The abs light has its own computer your have to get it scanned to clear the codes and turn off the light
Itcould be that the brakes installed on your car were not the Original Manufaturers (OEM) recommended pads and/or shoes on the back and front. Or only two of the brakes were replaced. when installing breaks install the OEM's or original breaks for your Corsica.
If a given set of replacement linings are more aggressive than the original, the brakes may feel grabby or upset front-to-rear brake balance increasing the risk of the front or rear brakes locking up on wet or slick roads especially if the more aggressive linings end up on the back brakes. On the other hand, if the replacement linings are less aggressive than the original linings or have less fade resistance, the vehicle may require increased pedal effort and take longer to stop than before. And if these linings end up on the front brakes, they may increase the risk of rear wheel lockup, too.
You have a bad master cylinder my friend, all the braking force is going to the rear hence the lockup, the front brakes most likely don't do anthing, all mdern brake systems are split, so you have at least 2 wheels working, in effect the car has 2 master cylinders in one unit.
