Question about 2002 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

ABS system keeps engaging and then disengaging.

The abs kept engaging and the light would go on which then disengaged the abs system. I have replaced a ball bearing and the harness associated with the front right tire. The problem still keeps happening. My mechanic friend doesn't know why and it's quite upsetting. Any suggestions?

    I about ready to try anything. All started with a ball bearing and then the harness went faulty. Put a brand new harness on (which by the way took forever to get through GM!) only to have the problem start up again within 24 hours!

The 4WD! Warning Light keeps coming on then turns off, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) light is on sometimes and not others and the Traction Control System (TCS) Indicator Light. the first time they...


TCS And 4wd use the abs wheel sensors to engage and disengage so if there is a slight fault in the abs sensor system TCS will be disabled and the 4wd will either not engage or disengage depending on the drive position set at time of fault that is what the lights are telling you
Get the sensor system checked out from the abs rings on the axles to the sensors and wiring to the abs pump controller

Renault clio abs light comes on with vibration through brake pedal. discs and pads renewed


How hard are you stepping on the brake pedal? What you are describing sounds like the ABS system activating. When you step on the pedal hard enough to engage the ABS the light will come on, in some cars it will blink. You will also feel the thumping/vibration in the pedal since the system works by repeatedly engaging and disengaging the brakes. If it is happening when you step lightly on the brakes then you may have a bad wheel speed sensor or possibly a bad or miss-adjusted brake switch.

ABS braking system engages at slow speeds or while


Are there any malfunction lights coming on? If so then it could be a wheel speed sensor. sometimes people confuse rotor vibration with abs pulsation.

ABS LIGHT COMES ON AND DISENGAGES THE ABS BUT


When the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. Meaning, when the abs is light is on and you brake, the tires will lock up with heavy braking.

Escapes have a common issue of the ABS excitor rings cracking causing ABS problems. Sometimes it activates on almost every brake application. It may set a code in the ABS computer for an intermitten wheel speed sensor or no wheel speed signal. Check all the "rings" on the outside of all four axleshafts. If none of the rings are cracked it is likely a bad ABS wheel speed sensor.

What does ETS mean and how to use it


Hello! ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System. It is a system that limits traction loss by utilizing the anti-lock braking system (ABS) to keep the tires from spinning on slippery or loose pavement. If you press the button, and the ETS light is illuminated on your instrument panel, that indicates that the system is disengaged. To engage the system, push the ETC button on the shift handle, and the light should go off. If it doesn't, that could be an indication that you have an ABS malfunction and you should have that diagnosed.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!

My ABS and brake lights come on at low speeds; 1993 Ford F250


you probably have to replace the controller (abs switch under car) which on my van (2001 windstar) was about $800.00 bucks....mine was under warrenty but not any more...when you take off the battery cable this dis-engages the power to the contoller. i could be 100% wrong...take it to your mechanic...its obviously not safe like that....

Abs light stays on/strong smell


Check the E-Brake, make sure that the ebrake is not engaged and that it is fully disengaging. If that is not the problem, then there is something with the brake calipers or rotors that are not allowing your brakes to fully disengage
