Antilock brakes 97 Silverado rolls thru intersections

The antilock brakes on my 97 Chevy K1500 seem to operate all the time except without the vibration noise. It feels like I am not going to get stopped in time at stop lights. The antilock dash indicator was not on. I pulled the fuse and now stopping is normal just dont have an antilock system anymore.

    I am a little confused since they work perfectly without the antilock fuse installed.

    Its one of the wheel speed sensors. I have the same truck with the same problem. Ended up Ripping out the ABS fuse also and just left it like that.

    I have the same issue on my 1996 chevy silverado k1500. i changed the sensors and it didnt make a difference. Chevy must have a major recall issue on their hands but wont admit it.

I had the same issue. Its one of the wheel speed sensors. To find out whitch one you would have to have someone hook up a scanner to see whitch is slipping. I just ripped out the fuse myself and am just driving it like that.

Ani brake light comes on somtimes


"ani brake light"??? Do you mean Antilock Brake light? If the antilock brake warning lamp is illuminating while driving under normal driving conditions, then you probably have a malfunction in your antilock brake system. You must scan your antilock brake control module to find out why it has been illuminating the light. Wheel speed sensor malfunctions are a common cause of the symptoms you are describing, but you cannot be sure if that is what is causing it, or which one is causing the problem without scanning the controller and performing proper diagnosis.

Hi. Your 2001 Chevy Silverado is equipped with Antilock Brake System (ABS). You will identify also if your car is equipped with ABS by looking at the instrument panel for a yellow ABS indicator light after you turn on the ignition.

My antilock brakes are activating at low speed stops 97 silverado K1500


From pads may be low causing the rear brakes to over brake and the anti-lock kicks in. Could be a sticking caliper piston and last the proportioning valve may need bleeding as it is offset.....

Caliber sticking


that would normally have nothing to do with brakes unless you also have a antilock light on aswell

At times when I apply the brakes, right at the time when the vehicle should be coming to a complete stop, the brakes seem to let up and allow the vehicle to slide up a few feet more.


i would suspect your antilock brakes are activating. you probably have one of your wheel speed sensors that drop to 0 mph fooling the computer that one of the wheels have locked up and therefore goes into antilock mode. no code would set as this is a normal function of antilock brakes, you would need to get a scanner on the car and monitor wheel speed input. as you come to a stop monitor the wheel speeds closely and look to see which one is droppind to 0 prematurly.
