SOURCE: 2001 Chevy Tahoe with ABS & Brake light on.

I hope you have the problem fixed by now, but, it is the ABS control under the truck. You need to go under the hood and open the fuse box and disconnect the 60 amp fuse for the ABS, this will turn it off before it burns up. This however will also cause the traction assist off light to stay lit all the time. To the fix the problem you can pay tons of money ($700 or so) to have the dealership install a ABS control and the problem will happen again over time. Or, remove it yourself, go on ebay and ship it off to a guy who repairs them for about $150 and you will never have the problem again. Also, if you wrap your cable ends with plastic and protect them good, you can still drive you truck while the part is being worked on. It takes about a week.

SOURCE: 2005 CHEVY +TRAIL BLAZER ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS ON

When the ABS light is on when driving there is a problem in the anti lock brake system and you will need to have it tested to find out what the problem is. As long as the light is on the ABS has been shut off by the computer until it is repaired. There could be problems with one of the wheel speed sensors, wiring or the ABS pump. On some vehicles the red brake light will come on too.

SOURCE: 2001 chevy s10 blazer abs light stays .

The abs is a add on for the brakes that when the tires come into a skid or slid they wont lock up..Your brakes will still work great with the abs disabled but your brakes will lock up if you push on the brakes hard enough to stop.Mainly abs works in slippery conditions not letting the tires lock up and keep the car rolling instead of making it slide..But no effect of the brakes will happen..Just make sure your fluid is full and there are no leaks and if you want to get them check you can stop by your local Auto Zone and they will scan your car for free and tell you what sensor is bad..I hope this was helpful to you...Have a great night

SOURCE: ABS and BRAKE light at the same time

push the pedal and see if it goes to the floor slowly or fast, if so,some thing like this i would lay on the ground in the back and have some one push the pedlal and hold it, look for fluid, like wet spot near the wheels first ( i have seen wheel cylinder go bad but not leak alot at one time so keep that in mind too) and make your way to the front on the driver side inside of the fram.i dont think its the master cylinder but see if you can see a wet spot at the bottom of the master and the booster( i seen masters not leak as will )

leaks will make the ABS lite come on

SOURCE: 1991 chevy S10 blazer fluctuating oil pressure

I assume from the year it has high mileage. With mileage comes wear in these engine's bearings allowing oil pressure to drop because of the excess clearance between cam and bearings, also the crank and bearings. When the engine is hot and idling the oil is thinner and goes by the bearings quicker. If you have good oil pressure while driving, I'd leave it alone, maybe use a thicker oil or some lucas additive. My 89 does the same thing sometimes in the summer, but don't remember it doing it this summer. I use Mobil-1 and an AC Delco filter.

What are the steps necessary to replace the brakes on a 1991 Chevy S10 2wd 4.3 6 cylinder. And do I need any special tools?


If you're going to keep that S10, and apparently you are as you are replacing the brakes, go to an auto parts store and buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual. It will give you step by step instructions, and will guide you on which tools to use to do any particular job. An investment of $15 - $20 for the manual will more than pay for itself in time saved and minimum frustration.

Got stuck on slick icy roads twice night before last.... after the 2nd time of getting stuck my brake warning light is now stuck on... brake fluid levels are fine and brakes work fine... I drive a 94 chevy...


due to icy temperature the your brake fluid froze i suggest that you might flash the brake fluid..every 2 yrs the two thumbs up to flash your brake fluid because when it get old due the boiling point went low that can cause or losing brake in high or low temp..let me know what happen after flashing your old brake fluid

The abs light blinks 6 times


The flashes are a trouble code, the sinking to the floor is most likely a bad brake master cylinder.
