Question about 1994 Chevrolet Corsica

1 Answer

ABS and Brake Light on

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.

Sounds like you have a bad sensor. No you can not hurt anything by driving with the light on, but you do want to try to keep your warning lights clear

Brake and abs light on,came on when a line burst,abs has been unplugged for three years,that light i can live with,the service brake system flashing on dash,is a pain,2003 2wd,silverada


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.

How do I determine if an ABS sensor is bad on a 1995 chevy corsica


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.
Check:
- 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.

How do you reset ABS sytem for 2005 mazda tribute rear brakes


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.

Suddenly, No tail lights, brake lights, turns signal or back up lights At 83000 miles, 6 months ago, replaced head gaskets. 1 week later, service engine soon light came on. Tech said it was an oxygen...


just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

I have a 94 chevy caprice classic wagon. it had sat for 3 years before i bought it. when it was last driven everything worked.after i purchased it the abs light on the dash was on. i noticed fluid leakage...


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

92 dodge van rear ABS-brake and ABS lights on/can't reset?


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

Rear brakes grabbing on 95 Corsica


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.

ABS brake problem, 1994 Chevrolet Corsica


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.
