Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10
My ABS Light and parking brake lights are on. They still work and I think its the sensor that is broken. Where is that Sensor located in a 2000 chevy S-10 2.2 L LS I have the same exact problem. Find a solution yet? Seemingly at random my ABS and PB lights will come on, with that the speedo stops working and I have severe shifting problems. Either very late shifts or no shifts at all. Sometimes it will shift into second and like magic all the problems go away, Sometimes, itll finally shift after running at redline and all the warning lights go out but it still doesnt want to shift. The symptoms are always the same but in random order, and come and go very randomly
Sounds like your vehicle speed sensor is going out. it's the modern equivilent of a speedometer cable. it tells the computer how fast your going which the computer uses to determine shift points, abs function, and speedometer readings. they usually act up a bit before they go out. it confuses the computer. normally located in the extension housing at the rear of the transmission where the spedometer cable would be on an older vehicle

I've had the same problem when my 2000 S10 4x4 (Auto). The ABS wires were bad, it was reading that the tire was moving even though it was in park. New wires at a junk yard fixed my problem. The PB went away as soon as everything reset. The abs sensors always get dirty, it's a common problem I've heard with the trucks. Everytime you rotate a tire or do a brake job..wipe them off. Should prevent future problems.
