ABS/Brake dash light on 2004 Chevy Astro rear wheel Drive

About a month ago I hit a truck tire piece and shattered the lower grill, driver headlamp and parker light. Broke both front tire stems too. Since then, ABS/Brake light comes on after engine has been running in the heat for a while. They do not come on when engine is cool.
No fluid leaks of any kind, fluid levels are all ok. Breaks ok. Any ideas?

Look for wires hanging, near the tire area under the car. An ABS sensor wire may be broken or the sensor is damaged.
Getting the system scanned will tell you exactly what is going on.

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

Electronic stability control & abs & brake assist warning indicator lights are coming on after an accident. How serious are they?


You have damage to the front area brake system. It could be very serious but if car stops OK most likely not that serious you just won't have abs or traction control. The damage is most likely a speed sensor or something similar. I said it could be serious that is only worst case.
Here is a breakdown of what lights mean
ABS keeps your breaks from locking up
BREAK ASSIST helps your breaks
Traction control if you one wheels spin more than others system adjust wheel spiN

Rear ABS Light/Rear brakes drag sometimes


The only moving parts on brake's are caliper's and master cylinder.The rest are just pipe's. Dosent sound like the master cylinder as the two back brakes should lock not one. It still sounds like caliper's. Can you be sure they have changed them If it were mine I would get someone independent to check they have done the work they say they done.

Abs & Brake light on.


I have found that the wheel sensors for the abs system get very dirty and cause the abs warning light to come on. You can try to clean them if you have the tools to take them off but usually you just want to replace them.

Your brake warning light and your rear braking problem may be caused by the same problem,
the cable sticking. Good luck!

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.

Sounds like the auto shut down relay. Located somewhere in the front grille/bumper area. Relay triggers on impact to shut down all power in order to prevent fires etc. Great idea but can cause exactly the frustration you are having if you don't know it's there!!
