Disable ABS without losing brake lights?

Having issues with our ABS system. Pulled the fuse, as recomended on other forums. This resolved my ABS issue but also turns off all braking lights. Is there a way around this? I pulled the main ABS fuse located in front/fuse box as well as the ABS fuse in the rear/fuse box.

    By the way, both fuses were removed at different times. Same result = loss of braking lights when fuse not present.

Look for an ABS Relay, I just briefly searched and didn't really find any exact picture to share with you on where it'd be located. Fuse boxes should be labeled, or ID in the owners manual. Pull ABS relay if located, post results!

Testimonial: "Here is what i found within the manual. J Cases, ABS, located in front Fuse Panel. Pulled, fixed problem but lost brake lights. Fuses, ABS, located underneath rear seat - passenger side, removed, did not test braking and braking lights were lost again. Both of these were put back in. The only other options I found were: Fuses, BAS, but this ties or shows usages for Taillamps, Center High-Mounted Stop;amp, Flasher Module, Trailer Lamps, and of course the ABS Module. I have not pulled this to try it. or Relays, BAS Relay Mini, (Usage) Brake Apply Sensor. I could not find an ABS Relay, unless one of the four i listed above is it. Suggestions?..."

Many of the master cylinders have connection for a brake light pressure switch. Some also active the brake lights by placing a switch directly under the brake pedal. You may need to build your own bracket.

Brake and abs light


Check to see if your emergency brake is partially on. Also the abs light goes on when the sensors on the hubs get corroded from salt. They either need to be cleaned or replaced. Mine are on from corrosion from road salt so rather than pay the hefty fee to fix the issue until I can do it myself I just pulled the fuse for ABS in my panel to shut that system off. Perfectly safe to drive without them and not an inspection requirement. Now your abs is probably going on every time you apply the brakes and that is not a good thing!

Installed new front brake lines, now after trying to bleed them it supposdly will not let the fluid to bypass the abs. system. ?


Before bleeding brakes make sure you disable abs system. I usually remove the abs fuse for that time. With abs on you cannot bleed brakes properly. If still having problems then check new brake lines for glitches that might have happened during the install.
PS: Don't forget to put back the abs fuse after you are done! Otherwise you still have brakes but not with abs feature.

Well, it could mean that the emergency brake has not been fully released.The ABS system light is on if something has occurred within the ABS system. Something faulty may have happened there, get it checked out!

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

Abslight stays on no brake lights


Fuse 12 (10 Amps) may be burned out. Its located in "Junction Block". Losing
fuse 12 would kill the ABS systems and light the ABS dashboard light.

Fuse 11 (20 Amps) may be out. Its located in "Power Distribution Center". Losing fuse 11
would kill the brake lights, and light the ABS dashboard light. If fuse 11 is blown,
check your (3) brake light sockets for shorts of any type, or fuse 11 will just blow again.

ABS warning light What does this mean?


Means your anti locking brake system is disable, when the ABS light is on means the ASB computer pick up a bad signal from one of your ABS sensor's, any auto parts place like autozone can do a free code reading, once you get the code get back with us here at FixYa so we can help you diag. your trouble code, also your brake will work fine it be like a car with out ABS, get it check out.

Disable ABS without Beeping in Cabin.


If you don't care about the light being on, just unplug a speed sensor. Why do you want to disable it anyway?
