I have a 1998 Monte Carlos. I had to slam on the brakes the ABS light and brake lights are on. What could it be. They were fine before I had to slam on my brakes to avoid a car in front if me.

You have a brake fluid pump on board that over rides high pressure to keep the wheels from locking up by openning a bypass valve. If you can lock up the wheels by hitting the brakes hard the valve is stuck :( very costly. If they dont lock its electrical if they do you just wont have ABS. This is something that was passed on to me so i drove without ABS car stopped fine.

Brakes may be worn out and locking up. Take car to a brake shop but ask him first is there anything you can do to fix this. Don't drive without brakes.

to bleed brakes you should bleed the passenger rear first then the other rear then passenger front then driver front always start the bleed furthest wheel from the master cylinder
