Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
The brakes do not behave normally when applied, and they do when the abs is disconnected
Why did you not have the shop find a problem
& then go there, to have what was found explained to you ?
That way, you learn something & can decide if your being told the truth,lots of shops throw parts at codes & have no idea how
to diagnose vehicle problems
Why your using it is beyond me,get it fixed

SOURCE: mechanic says computer is bad.
This sounds like the ABS control module (EBCM). I believe the code it will throw is a 1216. This is a common failure. They likely want 600.00+ to replace it.
It takes about 20 minutes to remove the controller. You can send it in to an online repair shop and they will rebuild it for 150.00.
It's a fairly common failure.

sounds like the r/f wheel brg needs replacing when you are coming to a stop and you hear the pedal making noise does it pull slightley to the left this would conferm the r/f is the problem

These warning lights are often on due only to bad sensors and not due to bad systems. If your ABS brakes still pump themselves, for instance, you Antilock brakes are still working even tho the light is on. Whenever the check engine light is on it means that you will get error code messages about what the problems are by scanning the car's computer. If you have an AAMCO repair shop nearby drive there as they will scan your computer for free. Some auto parts stores also scan for free so call around. J.

OK, if the ABS light is on one should scan it with an OBD-II ABS Brake Scan tool like Actron's ($99 to $116 on Amazon.com).
This will likely tell you which wheel has a bad speed sensor.
There could be an internal fluid leak on the master cylinder which needs to be addressed before it's safe to drive.
It would be nice to have the ABS portion of your braking system fixed at the same time.
You may be looking at a new ABS Brake Wheel Speed Sensor which is sometimes put into the hub permanently (requiring a new hub).
