Your abs light is more than likely caused by the hub assembly/wheel bearing sensor on the front wheels. I would take to autozone to see if they can do abs check.

SOURCE: Abs brakes feel likes they are pulsing

Sounds like warped rotors. Where did you buy them? The "cheap-o" replacements are made in China and if not stored properly, will be warped when you buy them ! ! ! I'd take them back and have the Auto Store check them and/or give you a replacement. If they hand over another pair, ask them to check them BEFORE you take them home... I've had this same problem at O'Reilly's in the past but other stores handle the same Chinese replacments...

SOURCE: 2006 Equinox, T/C light and ABS light on What

The TC and ABS light comes on when on of the 4 wheel motion sensors located behind the drums in the back and behind the rotors in the front are malfunctioning. A diagnostic should tell you which one it is because you have 4 in total. They cost approximately $80 each CAN funds.

SOURCE: abs light and tc on my 2005 chevy equinox


The ABS & TC circuits are related.

It's possible one of your wheel speed sensors may be either contaminated (i.e. dirt or metal filings) or faulty, or a problem with your ABS pump.

Your vehicle's OBD computer will have store the appropriate fault codes, so have your codes read by Autozone or your local Chev/GM dealership. It should only take around 15 minutes to extract the codes and will immediately identify the suspected circuit.

SOURCE: abs and traction control lights do not shut off

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXX *** I will be assisting you.... When the "Service Electronic Brake System" Message appears, its telling you that you have a fault in the ABS(Anti-Lock Brake System)...In order to properly diagnose your vehicle you will need to take it to a shop that has the capability to connect to the ABS Controller.. Once you get the codes, then I can tell you the diagnostics in order to repair your vehicle.. The repairs may range from a clockspring, speed sensor, ABS Module, SCCM, or just needs to be Updated...
Customer :

I did take it to a place and have them connect to the ABS sytem. I think this cost me around $100 with the assumption that it would go toward the repairs if needed. Nothing was done and the mechanic spoke to me personally saying that he thought the sensor could just have dirt or gunk on it but did not mention any codes coming up.
Brad :

Ok, if the light is on the system has codes in it... He may not have had the proper equipment to diagnose your vehicle... But if it says service electric brake system there is a code that is in it and in order to properly diagnose your vehicle, I will need that code... Your vehicle utilizes the newest type of communication which is Can-Bus...Alot of older vehicle scantools wont work with this type of system... You may need to take it to a dealership for them to pull the codes for you
Brad :

I have this case from Jeep, you cn read it and maybe you will understand why the codes are so important in diagnosting your vehicle.
Brad :
Case Number K56486465
Vehicle Issue ABS lamp on. Fault codes C1219 and U0126 logged in the ABS module.;The SCCM must never be replaced unless it has an internal fault related specifically to the SCCM module. If the following conditions are found: - fault codes C1219 and U0126 are logged in the ABS module - the SCCM has no internal faults (active or stored) - the ESP and ABS icons are on and - the Service Electric Brake System message appears The fix is relatively simple and does not require replacing an SCCM.
System or Component Will Not Clear,Will Not Reset,Will Not Turn Off;DTC / Error Message;ABS System,ABS Light / Anti-Lock Light;Yes - Continuously
Recommendation 1) Connect the Starscan tool to the diagnostic connector, power up the tool and set the ignition key to run. 2) Confirm C1219 and U0126 is stored or active in the ABS module. 3) Confirm no faults are active or stored in the SCCM. 4) Position the steering wheel so the tires are pointing straight ahead. 5) Use tool and go to the LID in the ABS or SCCM to observe SAS position. If greater than 360 degrees, you must re-center the SCCM/SAS. Fastest way to re-center the SCCM/SAS is: A) Remove knee blocker to access the steering column/intermediate shaft (I-shaft) knuckle bolt. B) Remove the bolt and slide the I-Shaft off the column shaft. C) While monitoring the SAS position with the tool, rotate the steering wheel at least 360 degrees so the angular position decreases towards 0 degrees (zero). Remember, if the tires are pointing straight ahead, we should be at 0 +/- 30 degrees, so we can reattach the I-shaft and tighten the bolt. D) Clear the faults in the ABS and turn the ignition switch off and then on twice to ensure the cluster warnings and respective faults do not reappear. If the fault reappears, refer to intermittent diagnostics. Please note that Service part numbers have been released to allow for the replacement of necessary components versus replacing the entire SCCM assembly.

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 C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455

Abs and traction control dash lites come on and off at various time..sometimes never come on

Your abs and traction control lights should only come on when you start to slide while breaking(ABS), and when your wheels spin in place when excelerating(TC). If those 2 things don't happen, which with some people they never do, you should never see the lights come on. Only when those mechanisms are in use do the lights come on. And they will always flicker as that is what abs and tc are, intermitant surges to break up the constant. ABS does this for obvious reasons...anti lock break, so when you slide, the abs "taps" the breaks in short bursts so they don't lock up. TC "taps" the exclelrator when it slips. Those "taps" are what trigger the lights on your dash, which is why they flicker and don't stay on.

After hitting a bump my abs and tc lights came on in my 2005 equinox. They went of when i started the car again then came on after going over a speed bump

The ABS, ( anti-lock break system ) has a sensor on each wheel that can come lose after hitting dips and speed bumps. If you are mecahanical you may be able to fix it yourself, if not, any auto shop can fix it in just a couple of minutes.

I'm not real sure about the tc, ( traction control ) system, sorry.

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.

Have you tried to replace the pads ? Or it can be the rotors that are worn thin and need replacement. The pads seem to be grinding agains the metal rotors.

Abs brakes making noise.

Well the abs light reads wheel speed sensors located behind the rotors you will see a little wheel with notchs in it and when reads as if the wheel is locked up it will activate the abs i would inspect those sensors for damage possible one got bent or has junk on it interfearing with the signal and take it back to the place that did the brake job hope this helps
