Question about 1995 Geo Prizm
1995 Geo Prizm Lsi [1.8L + OD + Cruise] -ABS light comes on and stays on when driven. The system worked fine this past winter... But now I notice that while it still tests itself when the ignition is turned to ACC, the (clicking valves) sound is shorter now... And it doesn't test again when the vehicle is driven off, then ABS light comes on after a short time.
I wonder whether you can locate the diagnostic socket under the bonnet
Usually, when the ABS light is on, it's the speed sensor or faulty actuator but it is best to find out what code is stored on the ABS ECU first.
is there any code popping up?
Reasons:(best way of solving it)
You are dealing with a primary safety device in your vehicle. A device that can save your life. The SRS is not a system that can be worked on by a novice. Serious injury can occur if you do something wrong. The flashing light is an indication that something is wrong with the system. Take the car to you local GM dealer and have it repaired by a pro ASAP. Your life or a family members life may depend on it.
anything more post it ill clarify

Hi I am Vortash firstly the wheel vibration is most likely wheel balancing especially as you have just moved the wheels around , you need to get the wheels checked out for true ?, make sue they are not buckled or the tyre's seated badly .Check ball joints and wheel bearings for play .
The Abs is more serious it sounds like the sensors have been messed up .. if you move the wheels on an abs system without the ignition on you sometimes have brake management issues and it has to be reset .. Check your hydraulic oil levels and make sure no wires are dangling by the wheel sensors .. other than this there is not much that you can check without the assistance of a service center .Remember this is the brakes we are talking about and it could be the difference between life and something far less pleasant get them checked proffesionaly and don't risk an accident that may have been prevented Regards Vortash
