Abs light on all the time and when i go to hit my brakes to slow down i feel like the brake pedal is pushing back hard and then the abs light will flash on and off but the truck wont stop like it should...

So what your saying, is you lost, the last 30 years of technology?
You have no idea what ABS,Check Lights, and the likes are there for?
You have an ABS System failure. Maybe a Wheel Speed Sensor,you can do yourself.
Have to get code first and follow a trouble chart to diagnose.

My abs light stays on while car is running-should i worry?

most likely it just disables the abs which some people hate so depending on who owns it could be good , BUT i would get it checked cause on those vehicles i believe that on the wheel bearing is and abs sensor and sometimes it's easy to get caught & rip or pull wires off BUT like i said worst case NO ABS & abs is when you hit brakes hard they pulsate till ya stop and with no abs you hit brakes hard and they lock up till ya stop .

Bearings bad, grinding when I hit the breaks,petal pulsating

when your bearings start going bad two things happen first the ring gear that the abs reads the wheel speed moves to where it doesnt get a reading so that would probly be the abs light and second the flexing in the rotor will tend to colapse the brake piston leaving extra gap between the piston and the brake pad you might be able to confirm this by doing small short pumps and see if the pedal improves and it stops better i suggest replacing the bearings in pairs if you continue to drive the vehicle you run the chance of ruining the calipers hope this helps

2007 Dodge Caravan ABS light stays on after

Common issue when a wheel sensor gets faulty.On every wheel there is a sensor which informs the ABS system about wheel speed.If any of them is broken then the ABS system locks up and you get the warning light.In this case your brakes are working just as fine but you dont have ABS so wheels can block when you push the brake hard enough.Trouble code reader can tell you which one is faulty.

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

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
