Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire

2001 Pontiac Sunfire coupe dashboard brake light and abs light on

I have just recently bought this car used, and the owner claimed he had just put new brakes, roters, etc. in. Everything was okay until the other night both the BRAKE light and ABS light came on, went off after a few minutes, but now has been on since. I am unsure of what this means and do not know if I should take it in or if it could be something simple, or even a problem from a past recall. Thanks in advance!!

Well, it could mean that the emergency brake has not been fully released.The ABS system light is on if something has occurred within the ABS system. Something faulty may have happened there, get it checked out!

Have a 2001 pontiac sunfire can be driving down the road trac off light will come on and car will start running rough then die turn car off then back on push ets button then light goes out pull up on...


You have an ABS Braking System Malfunction

Just sillly for a professional to say there is nothing
wrong

Your car is not safe to use at all

Need a different repair shop & make sure they
underdstand all the details of the issue & they
write down what you tell them

I never recommend a dealer, but in your area that
may be an option. Don't take it back until they drive
100 miles with no issues

Rear brakes locking up when wet. Now abs light and service light and traction control light all coming on abs cutting in quite often even when it's not wet or slippery


Sounds like possibly your emergency brake cable got stuck at one point in time, its probably wearing your brakes down horribly. Also your rear brake calipers may have gone bad and are partially stuck closed.

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.

Put in new stereo in 2001 Pontiac Sunfire now have no Panel operation-all panel lights on but no ppower to controls have been told I need to increase a fuse size but which one?


Did you use a special wire harness? GM connected some computer system wiring with the stereo system, so if you replace this, there will be no chime when you open your door with the headlights on or keys in the ignition...and some other warning stuff. This special harness can be bought, but it is expensive (around 80-150$). Go to electronics store and ask for one. Anyways, hope this helps.

Brake light on dashboard


First thing to check is the fluid level, but that is a pretty general warning light. Do your brakes feel excessively spongie or make any noises?

Brakes pulsate real hard


That is just the ABS system at work. It is supposed to prevent your wheels from locking which often makes the brake pulsate, especially in wet weather or or snow or ice. The only way to really stop this is to disable to ABS by unplugging it and removing the fuse. This will make the ABS light appear in your dash, but your brakes will stop pulsating.
