Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Heather, I'm glad to help!
Being in the automotive field for over 40 years I have run across some pretty crazy stuff that causes the ABS light to come on go. I one time I found an axle bent and was causing the sensor not to pick up the signal at times. Once on the rear of a car I found the axle nut loose so it was causing the axle to move in and out so the sensor would not send the signal at times. Also other things like frayed wiring can cause this issue because when you turn a corner the frayed wiring falls over and grounds out on something and kills the signal going to the ABS Module. Other times I have found more than others connector issues, where the terminals in the connector are spread to much and looses the signal. Heather, things like this is what you need to look for with your ABS issue. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Heather.

First off where are you from? If you have an Australian Based Version then there is a portion of the control unit that can short and illuminate the vehicle brake lights. If this is a US version then I would first disconnect the red wire on the brake control unit. If the lights stay on, I would suspect faulty brake switch. If they turn off, then something is shorted in the brake control unit. thanks paul

if the brake pedal is low than the problem could be that the brakes need replacing and the other problem could be a problem with the ABS system

the fifth wire is most likely an auxiliary power wire, for if you wanted lights inside a trailer. (PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER!)

you can either wire it straight or gm makes a connector that plugs into the drivers side floor . theres a box down there that has a cover over it and the gm connector plugs straight to it. but be careful because i have seen several times were gm wired it wrong the stop light plug is in the wrong spot.take a test light to ground touch each connector while pressing and releasing brake pedal the one that lights the light, is your stop light look on there connector and check to see if that plug is going to the red wire if not move the red wire to that spot. as for wiring it you have to do it this way. black wire goes to constent hot, white wire goes to constent ground , blue wire goes back to your trailer plug for your electric brake, and red wire as you know by now goes to the stop light.
