Go to a local parts store and have them load test your altenator and battery. If they check out ok, check out your battery cables esp the ground.
Good luck. Dont forget to rate.

My ABS and Brake light goes on alot. Also sometimes my gages will go up and down for no reason. That is what they call the GM shuffel. It happens to alot of GM vehicles.
I never had a problem with loosing power or the tranny stuck in second gear. Sounds electrical, if no one can help here, get that thing to a garage before your hurt.

what I have encountered in the past is the ABS module was the cause. what happens is the wire connections become loose and fail to make proper contact, causing the brake,abs, and speedo to stop for short or long periods of time.if equiped with a tach it also will jump from 0 to 1500 or other places. I have noticed that the other components such as speed sensor,abs plugs, or instrument panels does not make all of the above things do this all at once. like I said this has been my findings and only suggesting a hopeful fix for your issue. best of luck to all.

Abs light brake light on not shifting


look under the truck at the ****** and check the wiring to the sensors if good may be a bad sensor,also check the wiring and connections to the abs wheel sensors [ located from frame to the hub behind the rotors ] the abs also acts as speed sensor if problem was with an abs sensor at the[ hub] wheel usually set the brake system to normal power brakes [if u hit brakes hard will lock up or skid wheels] with the abs light coming on if the speed sensor at ****** malfunction can and usually causes shift problems

The brake and ABS light both come on when you are receiving no speed signal. Most likely the speed sensor in the top of the rearend is bad.

ABS light comes on 97 Jimmy


The Airbag and ABS are separate systems and un-related, the speedo is related to the ABS light, I think if you run a self test on the system computer there will be a trouble code for the transmission speed sensor, the output of this sensor is used by the ABS and the speedometer. The airbag is most likely a defective rotating contact under the steering wheel, we techs call it a clock-spring contact because of it's shape, it allows the connection from the steering column to the airbag. CAUTION! If you want to change out this contact the steering wheel needs to be pulled, follow factory recommendations on dis-arming the airbag, it can be very dangerous if you don't.
