Question about 1993 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

ABS light is on

I was installing a new radio, made a novice error in forgetting to remove the battery to the car, and the abs light is on, and theres also a beeping sound that wont go away without removing the fuse (which unfortunately means the dome lights wont function).

Try unhooking the negative lead to the battery and leave it off overnight. Hook it back up and see if this resets the ECU.

Installed new front brake lines, now after trying to bleed them it supposdly will not let the fluid to bypass the abs. system. ?

Before bleeding brakes make sure you disable abs system. I usually remove the abs fuse for that time. With abs on you cannot bleed brakes properly. If still having problems then check new brake lines for glitches that might have happened during the install.
PS: Don't forget to put back the abs fuse after you are done! Otherwise you still have brakes but not with abs feature.

I have a 1995 SW Accord. When I turn the car on ABS light goes on and than off. That's OK! Driving the car for acouple of minutes or hours the ABS light remais off. That's OK But if I turn the car off...

its getting a fail reading. check the wheels on the sensors there are cogs check they are clean. also check the sensors don't have any muck in there.if they ok then do a removal of the battery remembering most radios need the code to be put in when the battery is connected. when the battery is removed (negative first) then on the abs unit remove the plug and clean the connectors both on the plug and the unit. contacted cleaner should work well for this. leave to dry for about 10min to an hour go get a drink. then reconnect every thing. that should of sorted it out. also have found that some times it can be down to a rear brake light fault. the wiring so wile the battery is off check them to.

You have a Malfunction Light on

ABS Light --- that is not something new
to anyone,check for codes as always

Most likely need professional scan tool
to access the abs module, so you also need
a repair shop as always

Check the battery for the no start

Disconnect abs light

I would get a second opinion. You could have fried a fuse and now the ABS system is not getting power. The light is on to tell the driver the ABS system is disabled or not working.

Mitsubishi shogun error ABS light/error codes

First of all, lets forget the ABS light for now. I take it the car doesn't even start and/or run correct?
Second, has anyone taken the connector off at the ECU located normally on the passenger side behind or above the kick panel by passengers right foot. That would be a good place to start.Remove the connector and clean it and all the contacts well with electrical cleaner, or tuner cleaner. Sometimes just removing it and re-installing it will help the connection. If there is any corrosion etc in there it can cause nightmares. Next take a real close look at all your ground straps that run from body to engine, frame to body etc., and make sure they are good. Also, check that battery is fully charged and in good shape, and all connections to it are good. Let me know any other details you can about whether it will start at all etc.

ABS light just came on yesterday in my 2005 Pacifica.


The module that connects to the ABS pump (next to battery) to be the problem.

You can do yourself,

  • Remove the battery,
  • disconnect the large cable going to the ABS,
  • unclip the 3 brake line clips on the top of the fender so the ABS pump could be removed and swapped the electronic modules- did not have to penetrate the brake lines at all.

It may take 20 minutes.
Now you can Restart and ABS light would be off.

Abs light on

if you know the code for the radio... unhook the battery for about ten minutes to reset the abs warning.... if it comes back on after that there may be another issue.... but make sure you have the code for the radio or it will become unusable.
