My abs light comes on and off. It will make a noise an a few minutes the light will come on . It has been work on about 4 times an everyone says that their is nothing they can do. What can I do now?

A good scan tool that will read ABS codes should give a clue. Most common failure is wheel sensor, but the ABS pumps do fail as well. The scanner should point to which part is bad. Some parts stores have a good enough scanner to read ABS codes. Ask them.

Reduced power light came on right after abs fault light came on

Firstly, you will have to perform a jump start, using another vehicle or battery.

I suspect that your alternator may have failed, so please do the following:

1) With vehicle running, use a voltmeter across the battery terminals. If charging is lower than 13.5 volts, then you can replace the alternator.
2) If charging can go up to 14 volts when revving the engine slightly, then go to 3
3) With engine off, check voltage across battery terminals. If lower than 12.4 volts, and if alternator check was okay, then replace the vehicle battery and retry.

2005 chevy colorado abs fault

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

check and make sure u did not damage or disconnect the wheel sensor(s), that would be just about the only thing u could have done to cause this issue, u might want to have the system tested for trouble codes to confirm this wheel sensor possiable fault.
