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

Sounds like water getting in one of the connectors. You will need to see what fault code is in there when the light comes on, then look at that sensor.

Abs fault lights up on dash and feels like brakes are dragging constant

I had a 96 tahoe and my abs light was on and my right front brake was dragging, i found that it was the abs speed sensor that was causing the problem. Once i replaced it abs light went out and no more drag. I know there's a big year diffrence here, i dont think the way this all works has changed much. Hope this helps.

2006 Chevrolet 1500 . mechanic said computer shows rt front abs sensor bad. How do i replace it ?

Sensor will be part of hub bearing assembly, remove brake caliper, brake rotor will slide off, on back of hub bearing will be three bolt's, remove bolt's, disconnect ABS harness, and hub bearing should come off, some time's will have to used a harmmer to knock it out due to rust.

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.

Replaced front brake pads and rotors now have an abs fault.what are the probable causes and/or remedies...without $$$ at the Dealership!?!?

The gaps on the front ABS sensors could be off. If they cant pick up the rig it will cause a fault. The sencors sould slide back and fouth in the housing. If they move take a reguar sheet of paper fold it in fouths. Then place it between the rig and the sensor. Put the sensor so that there is slight presser on the paper. This will be close to the gap you need.

03 Chevy 2500HD Service Brake System Warning

When you replaced the ABS sensor on the hub, did you clean and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. There was a recall on the ABS Malfunction on your truck. The tire size don't make a difference to your ABS as long as all four tires are the size, There was a issue bulletin with your Tahoe on the ABS activating under 8 km/h. Good luck and hope this helps, if not clean out the sensor with brake parts cleaner and check the wire harness and ABS sensor bracket. Re gap the sensor to the speed ring hub. Here is the bulletin. Anti lock Brake (ABS) Activation at Low Speeds (Clean Wheel Speed Sensor Mounting Surface) #03-05-25-007C - (05/16/2006) 2001-2006 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, Silverado

Abs fault light comes on goes off when u reset it,but might come

It sounds like you may have a bad ABS sensor. Best thing to do is check all the wire harness from all the wheels for cracking or breaks. The sensor could also need some adjustment, not sure how it is on the Colorado. There are some ABS sensors that is a part of the wheel hub and just dubble check the wire harness since the hub is going to be replaced = expensive. If it's a ABS sensor that counts the rotation from the wheel hub then it's adjustable. 
The sensor may have moved out a way from the ring counter and may just need to be moved closer to the ring which is a part of the wheel hub. Most of the time a good spray of Brake cleaner will fix that. Just follow the the ABS wire leads to the hub and you should see the sensor. Be surprised on how much dirt can collect back there.
Good luck and hope this helps, If you can get to a auto parts store that will scan for free like Auto Zone. The ECM may even have the information to which wheel has the bad sensor reading. At worst, it's your ABS system it self that may be going bad.
