Its an easy fix. its the sending unit sensor, AKA (module). depending on the model, it should be located by the master cylinder.

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. You will need to spend some time and money to come up with a solution. If you do not have the equipment or training I would get some help. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems.
I have seen very loose wheel bearings cause this problem also.

How to reset abs and traction lights on 2004 colorado


there is no resetting of the ABS light. it means there is a problem somewhere in the ABS system. There are sensors by each wheel - they seem to be sensitive to moisture - they may have failed for the ABS sensors. the traction control light may be related to the ABS light. just check it out ! make sure there are no brake fluid leaks at the wheels, and be sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid. In most cases a scan tool is necessary to access the stored fault codes. good-day !

What does the abs fault mean?


abs is short for anti lock brakes, this a safety feature that when working properly will prevent your car's brakes from locking up and sliding. when the abs module detects a malfunction in the system it triggers the light on storing a fault code, the abs module has to be scanned for the fault codes so they can be fixed then reset. disconnecting the battery will not reset this.

How do you troubleshoot traction control on a 2005 Chevrolet Colorado?


Normally traction control is a sub-system of ABS, it is a "piggy-back" system, and can be accessed with a scanner through the ABS system. hope this will help you.

ABS Fault indicator ? Is this an issue or just another money scheme ? Brakes seem to be working fine, truck has 155K on her.


The way the Brakes work on your Colorado, if there is an issue with your ABS, the brakes will still work. You may just not the have ABS brakes active. Most common cause of the ABS indicator is a faulty sensor to one of the 4 wheel. the common ones are the front wheels. Inspect the ABS sensor lead wire which should be along the A-arms to the ABS sensor on the inside wheel hub. Spray brake parts cleaner to the sensor and speed ring to ensure there clean and free of dirt that may be hindering the sensor to read the speed ring on the hub. Look at the condition of the lead wire and inspect for corrosion or any other type of damage. Most of the time a good spray of Brake parts cleaner will fix the problem. If there is an Auto Zone around your area, buy the brake parts cleaner there and have them scan the truck for the DTC codes which would indicate that it is the ABS sensor and not the ABS module, which will be costly and your most likely run it the way it is without ABS due to cost of replacing the module. Good luck friend.
