Your abs motor is bad. they are expensive 800.00. looked into replacing on spouses 2001 Tahoe. Its under the car about in the center of car. follow the rear brake lines to it. replacing pads wont do a thing for it. car drives stops fine but the light will drive you nuts.

Because the problem is not with pads and/or calipers. If the lights come on only when you brake, you may have a light bulb out. If they come on when you start the car and they stay on, you have a problem with your ABS system (anti-lock braking system). The systems self-check when you start the car, so the light should come on and then go out. If it comes on and stays on, the ABS system has failed. You need to have the vehicle serviced to repair the ABS system.

SOURCE: ABS light would come on

This is your Hub Wheel Assembly. Just replace them, get an alignment, and you will be set to go. I have had to replace mine twice in 5 years so they seem to go out relatively quickly in the Blazer. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1980 Chevy Truck Brake Locked Up

There are times when the rubber brake lines start to come apart internally and act like a one way valve. they let the fluid in, but will not let it out.

Try this: The the brakes are locked up release the bleeder on the caliper. if pressure come out there, lock up again, and release the hose where it goes into the metal line. This may be hard because of rust, but you will probably have to replace the line anyway.

You may have a bad Master, but odds are it is the rubber lines. Hope this helps.

Replacing break pads on 2000 tarus


Remove & Replace the Brake Pads
  • Loosen lug nuts from the front wheels with the ratchet and socket, but do not remove them.
  • Raise the front of the vehicle using the floor jack and secure it with jack stands.
  • Remove the lug nuts from the wheels and pull the wheels from the vehicle.
  • Look on the rear of the brake caliper and locate the caliper bolts, one upper and one lower.
  • Loosen and remove the upper and lower caliper bolts using the ratchet and socket.
  • Pull the caliper from the brake assembly, exposing the brake pads, and hang the caliper from a suspension component, using the bungee strap. Do not allow the caliper to hang by its hose, as this may cause damage.
  • Grasp the inner and outer brake pads and pull them from the brake assembly. Take note of how they were positioned, as the new brake pads must be placed in the same fashion.
  • Place the new brake pads on the brake assembly in the same position the old ones were.
  • Position the c-clamp over the caliper so the screw portion is contacting the the caliper's piston--the metal cylindrical object inside the caliper--and the fixed portion of the clamp is contacting the rear of the caliper.
  • Tighten the c-clamp until the caliper's piston is fully pressed into the calipers body. The top of the piston is even with the caliper body when fully pressed in.
  • Loosen the c-clamp and remove it from the caliper.
  • Place the caliper over the new brake pads and hand-tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts.
  • Tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts to 26-foot pounds, using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Repeat Steps 4 through 13 for the brake pads on the other side of the vehicle.
  • Place the wheels back on the vehicle and hand-tighten the lug nuts.
  • Remove the jack stands from under the vehicle and gently lower it to the ground.
  • Tighten the lug nuts to 100-foot pounds using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Press and release the brake pedal repeatedly until it feels firm.

Replace rear brake pads


Rear disc brake pads offer better performance and are not as affected by moisture like conventional brake shoe style brakes are. Rear disc brakes are similar to front disc brakes. The main difference is that rear disc brake systems must incorporate the emergency brake system. There are two methods widely used for the emergency brake with rear disc systems. The first system is a brake shoe inside the brake disc that is actuated by the emergency brake lever. The second is a screw style actuator inside the brake caliper. When activated the brake pads are forced into the brake disc and held tightly by the emergency brake lever.
READ COMPLETELY BEFORE STARTING
Step 1 - Identify Rear Disc Brake Components
rear_brake_pads.jpg Rear disc brake assembly includes; rear brake disc, rear brake pads, brake caliper mount and a caliper mounting screw. (Note: Some vehicles do not have the rotor mounting screw.)
Step 2 - Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_2.jpg To replace rear brake pads and rotors the rear brake caliper needs to be removed. First loosen the rear brake caliper mount bolts and remove them. Turn counter clockwise.
Step 3 - Lift Rear Brake Caliper from The Caliper Mount
rear_brake_pads_3.jpg After the caliper mount bolts have been removed, gently lift the brake caliper from the caliper mount. Inspect the caliper slides; they should move freely in the caliper mount. Remove rear brake pads and hardware.

Step 4 - Removing Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_4.jpg With a socket wrench or other appropriate removal tool, loosen the rear brake caliper mounting bolts. Remove bolts and lift the caliper mount and remove it from the vehicle. Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole. Tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub holding on tightly, using both hands. You do not want to drop the rotor.

Step 5 - Removing Rear Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor.jpg Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole, tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub, hold on using both hands and do not drop.

Step 6 - Install New Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor_2.jpg Check the new rotor against the old brake rotor to make sure they are the same size. Clean the mating surface on the wheel hub before the new brake rotor is installed. Reinstall rotor retainer screw.
Step 7 - Reset Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brakes_7.jpg Before new brake pads can be installed, the rear brake caliper must be reset. The reset tool winds the piston back into position so the new brake pads will fit. This style of brake caliper will not compress with a clamp tool; it can only be reset with the proper reset tool.
Step 8 - Reinstall Rear Caliper Mount and Install New Rear Brake Pads
rear_brake_rotor_3.jpg After the caliper has been reset, reinstall caliper mounting bolts and make sure the bolts are tight. Then match up the old brake pads to the new brake pads. They should be exactly the same except, of course; the old ones will be worn out. Check the new brake pads for proper fit and install any brake hardware that is required.
Step 9 - Remount Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brake_rotor_4.jpg Reinstall the brake caliper, align brake pad hardware and reinstall caliper mounting bolts. (Note: align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston.) Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly. This operation forces the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors. DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE until proper brake pedal operation resumes. When test driving vehicle listen for any unusual noises during the operation of the brakes.
WARNING! Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components. Never move a car without proper brake pedal operation.

    This is just like any other vehicle to change out the caliper. Almost all brakes are the same when it comes down to it. The only difference is the way certain companies either install them or the way they work. But on the Blazer it is really simple and can be done by just taking your time and doing it like you have done before
