Hello, I see you are having abs problems. The electronic brake control module has shorted out internally keeping the anti lock brake motor running. You will want to take your vehicle to a certified dealer for this repair, because this module may or may not have to be programmed to your specific model. Please rate this answer, Thank you

Headlights on 2005 chevy avalanche went out and all fuses and light bulbs are ok. what do i do do i check the relays and which one are they?

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

I need to know how much a abs control modual costs to fix? where to find the part?

The abs control module is under the driver side of the truck mounted on the inside of the frame rail. look under the truck you will see all the rake lines going into the abs pump the module is located on top of that and is replaced seperatly from the hydraulic section. it is a common problem with chevrolet vehicles. the part will most likely be around 6 to 7 hundred dollars. and keep in mind it has to be programed after instalation so you will have to g to the dealer for programing. hope this helps you.

I want to disable abs and trac control for a chevy 2002 cavalier,keeps having problems went throught it with a awsome mechanic and found no issues at all im sick of this **** every winter. I want answers...

one way to disable the abs brakes is to go under the hood and remove the abs relay, the box is located under the hood on the drivers side next to the battery just pull it out and your brakes will be like regular brakes the only problem is that your brake light and traction light will stay on but if you can put up with them then that will fix your problem. hope this helps.

Abs Is engaging irratically on 2002 avalanche

Did you bleed the system after doing the brakes? and since you din't say abs light I assume you mean the brakes are acting erratically. If you bleed the breaks first after that try it and if it still does it make sure you have the correct rotors and pads.

2002 chevrolet avalanche how do you know when brake booster out no pedal onley 1 inch from floor when pressed replaced the abs control module but had this problem before the module went out

If you have a bad booster you would have a really hard pedal and it would take two feet to stop. Sounds more like a fluid leak or a bad master cylinder. Are you adding fluid or do you have a red brake light on?
