Question about 1995 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

I have a 1995 GMC Jimmy, ABS never shuts off???

I have a 1995 GMC Jimmy, I bought it in the fall of 2008 from a used car place. The ABS light stays on all the time, it's off when I start the vehicle usually, but as soon as I drive for a second or two, it comes back on.

My break pads and rotors were replaced when I bought the beast...So what's the problem?? We thought maybe a computer wasn't reset or something, so I disconnected the neg. battery cable for a few minutes. The ABS light went out for a minute or two and then came back on... There appear to be no wires loose or anything... So I'm not sure what's going on.

Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

2001 gmc jimmy abs light staying on... Is there an abs breaker and where is it located?

No breaker. Inside the under hood fuse and relay box there is a relay and fuse. You need to take it to a shop and have them scan for the reason why the light is on. That way you don't throw parts at it until one of them fixes it.

2001 GMC Jimmy. Is there a fuse I can take out to disable the ABS system and just use the regular braking system so I can drive it into town and get it checked out and fixed properly? The ABS system is...

Under the hood there should be a fuse box, it's going to be one of the big fuses, had the same problem, 01 Tahoe. Found out it was a front bearing assembly. I replaced and it works fine now. Be carful as you will have no abs once fuse is pulled and FYI the abs light and break light will stay on as well. Good luck

My 1995 jimmy shuts of with a check eng light on starts back up after 30 sec my brakes and abs also come on at the same time

Check the charging system,it needs to be 13.65 volts to14.25 volts output at the battery,with the ac/heat on high blower,and the headlights on,if it is lower than tis,then the alternator needs replacing.

this is a abs pump problem. common on these circuits get "unsoldered" from vibration. if you feel like you can solder conections its a good couple hour job and sometimes things get burned out from voltage spikes. good luck jimmy rate as fixya thanx
