1999 Chevy Blazer ABS Light and Parking Brake Light

I had my front brakes replaced and a day later I was getting out of my truck and I smelled what seemed to be something electrical burning. I looked under the hood but could not find the source. Then a couple of days later my parking brake light started coming on intermittendly. Now my ABS light is coming on intermittingly. I think this has something to do with the GI10 wire from what I have read on other sites. Is this something that I can fix(woman) and if not how can I explain this to someone without getting taken to the cleaners.

You will need to find out which speed sensor has gone bad. Only way to know it to hook it up to a scan tool. The burning smell is possibly a caliper sticking as these vehicles are bad about them sticking after brake pad replacement.

    Autozones scanner won't probably tell you what is wrong with the ABS. You usually need to go to a repair shop with a good scan tool, or the dealer with the correct one for your vehicle.

ABS/Parking Brake?Service Engine Lights are on But Runs Great


Does ABS work properly? Get on dirt road and try to lock brakes (do this carefully insuring no police car tailgating,lol) Could be bad wheel speed sensor. Check codes with scan tool capable of reading ABS and trans codes.

Brake light on 1993 Chevy K1500 Blazer?


If the ABS light is not on, there are no codes to read.
If just the red brake warning light is on, either the equalizer valve has failed, the fluid level is low, or the parking brake is on.
Or one of those sensors has failed.
Your model may not have the equalizer valve tied into the warning light.

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.

I just spent a bundle on this, the ABS/brake light is the ABS control module dealer says the module alone in1K plus just for the module , the 4WD not working is a 4WD sensor in the dash sucking me dry for another 200.00 bucks, Good luck and hope this helps.
