The ABD light coming on could be a bad wheel sensor, or a bad ABS Module. The Stalling could be a bad idle air control valve. Best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and have them scan the the van for the DTC codes it's free of charge. They can tell you what part has failed and what is causing the stalling issue. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help. Just don't want to have you check all the posibility's why your van is stalling, that would cost way to much. Lets start with the DTC codes and go from there.

no , you were told wrong, but ABS is bad too. (or was just the stall resetting ABS to self test mode)
you have 2 independent failures.
1: brakes. (if ABS is on,, not stalled !!!)
2: engine. (this is IT, fix this)

you are guessing at ABS parts.? just throwing them. why do that?
my guess is you have a mech, and you want seconded guessing
on line with blind folks here.


the engine stalls moving,
that usually means the ASD relay dropped out, did the IMMO light come on? you need to look at what all lights did in the cluster at stall.
a stall causes rapid deceleration and loss of all engine power
and RPM drops and MPH drops and at the point of stall
all Cluster lamps go ON. they go to key on self test mode as
stated in the users manual. (lost sure)
to witness this, key on, no start, and bingo the self test happens.
those are NOT failures. its just a self test. Per manual.

Does the ABS stay off driving and not stalling or stalled.
yes, then ABS is ok......

did you take it to a shop (crooks) and tell them my ABS is on?
and they see it's out, and go, gee we can make some cash here for nothing. if you tell them wrong, they will in fact guess, and make you broke fast.
ABS can go on just with a bad brake caliper pad. a $10 part.
if car stops ok, and the lamp is out RUNNING !!!!
Then leave the ABS alone. why assume the most expensive part on car is bad, why do that...???? why not put on new pads. and rotors.
first. then test the ABS. ABS is not magic it cant help stop any car with bad manual brakes. not at all.
end brakes; now back to ENGINE.


then fix the stalls,
here is the stalls list, for only the ASD.
(even a tuneup, will end stalling)

THE ASD is the funky Jeep thing, that kills the engine for many a reason. (there are tests for each case failure)

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html


if the CEL lamp comes on driving < NOT STALLED)
then connect any scan tool, to the DLC connector at knees.
and scan the PCM for DTC errors.
then post those.
keep in mind, errors can AUTO clear, so not seeing them
in REAL TIME< means you missed the boat.
that is, you didnt get the facts of the failure.
but errors still in effect are stored and you can in fact
scan them parked, key on.
the CEL is only a SMOG light, you must scan to see the other 100+ errors. possible.

Better:
find a real ASE shop, and ask them to fix the stalls, (car stops good)
then they will fix that
and by magic the stalls are gone and the dash lamps go happy.

What does it mean if the abs light comes on while driving


It means there is an ABS (Anti Lock Braking system) problem, have it checked out by a shop. As for shops, stay away from any type of chain store.

Abs light on


It's likeley that a wheel speed sensor is bad, but to really find out it will be necessary to utilize an OBD-II ABS Brake Scan Tool such one made by Actron which covers 1996 through about 2005 year models of most American makes and models.

This tool will tell you in English what is wrong with the ABS brake system, or at least point to symptoms which can lead to a solution.

Which light is on ? The ABS light or regular Brake light?
If ABS light is on, your ABS is currently not working and it might be an electrical problem.
If the regular brake light is on something is wrong with the hydralics in the brake system. Either way bring it in ASAP. Good luck

2001 pontiac sunfire abs and check engine light is on. brake fluid is full and the front brakes were just changed about a month ago.


I think these lights are not related. The ABS light means the ABS is not working, and has nothing to do with the brakes working. You can have brakes and not have the ABS part working. I don't think a bad ABS would turn on the check engine light, but it may.

1994 Pontiac Grand Am Its sat about 2 months now. I went out to start it. It was dead. So I jumped it. Well I got it started and the check engine light and abs light was on. Well I put my foot underneath...


If the battery is bad and not holding a charge, every time you push on the brake's. The break lights come on and puts a load on the electrical system and if the voltage drops below 10.5 volts, the ECM will shut down fuel injector and ignition system. The other thing to is that the fuel pressure may be dropping due to the electric fuel pump not getting enough volts every time you put on the brakes. You cold always try keeping the jumper cables connected to make sure it's the voltage drop that is causing the engine to stall. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 1005 again soon.

I have a 1998 pontiac transport and the ABS light just went on. The brakes feel perfectly fine. What is this light for?


It's possible it's the ABS brake sensor is faulty. The sensor attaches to the brake caliper. The only way to verify if the ABS is functioning is to test them in a skidding situation which is unsafe. Normal braking would not give any indication if the ABS is functioning. You shouldn't automatically assume they are functioning and should get the car checked out at a shop that features free checks. Best of luck.

1994 850 wagon trac light and abs light come on while driving


I will bet money that it is the ABS/TRACS module. It is mounted under the master cylinder on the bottom of the ABS unit. These are very, very, very common failures. I have replaced hundreds of them in my career. To answer your other question, the TRACS system uses brakes. For example: in the snow, when the L or R wheel is spinning faster than the opposite, the TRACS will apply brake to the spinning wheel to slow it down to an equal speed. Hope this helps.

Have the ABS system scanned for codes. The ABS and Traction control use the same computer. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor.

Clean your ABS sensors thatg is mounted on the front disc rotors - they are usually covered with metal fillings and dust due to the magnetic properties of the sensors and also check or replace overload relay located behind battery - "Oldmerc" Australia
