Check the fluid level in the brake reservoir as there is a float that makes contact when the fluid is too low.

At 45000 miles we had this problem. After replacing hubs, and abs sensors the problem was traced to a frayed wire at the firewall that was going to ground an the ac tubing.

SOURCE: TRACTION LIGHT STAYS ON AND ABS LIGHT AFTER

There is a good chance that the wheel speed sensor, (ABS sensor) has gone bad or gotten to dirty. It's common for the ABS sensor to get too dirty and can not read the speed ring on the wheel hub since it's magnetic. The common repair is to spray Brake Parts Cleaner on the ABS and speed ring on the hub and inspect for damages to the wire harness. The ABS sensor is on the inside of the wheel hub so it's easy to get to, if you not sure what your looking for. Remove the wheel and along the A-arm, you will find a wire harness which leads to the wheel hub (Bearing). There is where your going to find the sensor, just clean it and inspect for corrosion and gap, you can take paper and fold it 5 times and place it between the sensor and speed ring for the proper gap. Good luck and keep me posted, if there is a Auto Zone around your area, have them scan the car just to make sure it's not your ABS modulator which would cast $$$ to replace.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

ABS light and Traction control light stay on. Vehicle brakes ok, but pedal feels "grindy" intermittently when braking


That "grindy" feeling is when the ABS kicks in. It's only suppose to activate when you slam on the brakes and the wheels would normally lock. Instead, ABS will very quickly pump the brakes on and off, to prevent the wheels from locking (making a giant skid mark) and stopping the car more effectively. Generally this only happens if you slam on the brakes or loose traction due to rain or snow while braking. If this is happening often and the brake light is on, on the dash, then you need to get this checked out by a qualified mechanic ASAP.

Traction light stays on as well as my abs would come on and stays on and clicking noise during braking.


Sounds like you have a problem in the front brakes or a front wheel speed sensor. A common cause for a Traction light is a faulty front ABS wheel speed sensor or harness. When the Anti lock brake computer sees a problem in the ABS syetm, it disables traction control as well.

2001 Mercury Grand Marquis brake and ABS dash lights on and off


The red brake light is the key here. That usually indicateds a hydraulic problem. Check you fluid level in master cylinder and see if it is low. Also the level indicator sensor there in the master cylinder maybe sticking or corrioded. If ABS sees the red brake light it will shut off and turn on the ABS light,also traction control would be disabled as well.
