You need to scan for ABS codes. If ABS light is on you will have normal braking only.

SOURCE: anti lock brakes light

Good Day,

Usually that indicates bad ABS sensor or ABS component in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.

hope this helps

SOURCE: Anti-lock brake light stays on

My wife took the car to exaust pro in Lexington, Ky. They did a scan and it was a speed sensor. They replaced it and it is fine. The car is great but after hearing all the complaints about the heater core we are going to sell it and get a Toyota Avalon. Also I replaced the antenna mast at 35k.

28-DEC-08
Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out.  This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose.  Then the fluid flow can be blocked.  When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels.  As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.  
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal.  In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose.  But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act.  Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.

SOURCE: 2002 Buick Century anti-lock brake problems

i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care

SOURCE: anti lock brakes are always on (almost constant ABS pulsing in brake pedal when braking.. not always but more than not)

The sensors are on the wheels. You need to have someone connect a scanner up to it since the light is on, you should be able to get a code. These units are difficult to diagnos without a scanner...even the flow charts that comes with the GM manuals sometimes will leave you hanging especially if it is the module on the ABS pump.

My 1998 buick centry locks up the brakes when i reverse. only in reverse, and only when i touch the brakes. it will reverse fine till i hit the brakes then all wheels lock. this does not happen in dri


Are you sure it is all 4 wheels locking up? I have a 1998 Century and had the same problem, it is due to moisture getting on the rear brake shoes, this makes them "stick" to the drum cold and lock the wheels, the newer brake shoe friction material has been improved to avoid this so called "stickson" problem in moist cold weather.

I have a Buick Reveria and my break light always pop up with this dining sound, whats the problem?


Not sure if it's safe. Is it the ABS (anti-lock brake system) light?
Anyway, have it checked ASAP. One thing you could check is your brake fluid level in the brake's master cylinder. Are your brakes normal?

1999 Buick century anti lock signal and trac off displayed when traveling over 60 miles per hour


You will be best off bringing the car in for service. If the anti-lock signal comes on, it means that your ABS system has a fault and you do not have anti-lock brakes functioning. When the light comes on the car runs on your brakes alone, no anti-lock.

To check the codes and the ABS system, the car should really be serviced.

Good luck!!

My A B S light comes on then it will go off. I have a 1995 Accord. The brakes seem to be working just fine. Help ?


There must be an intermittent problem with your abs system, which causes the abs light to come on and then go off, as you say. It won't affect your brakes, just your anti-lock braking function. if that light is on. If it remains on, have it checked.

Brake light warning on what does it mean 1995 buck century


If this car has ABS (Anti-Lock Brakes) then the Anti-Lock brake sensor may be faulty. This will not impair your brake use, however in the event you need to "hit" your brakes, they may lock up.
I suggest taking the car to an auto parts dealer and having a diagnostics test performed. This is usually a free service, and only takes a few minutes to do.
Once complete, a list of code(s) will be displayed and they will be able to tell you what exactly is in need of replacement. It is also a good idea to check the brakes (front and back) to make sure they are not wearing thin.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Anti lock brake always on


Does the red BRAKE light flicker sometimes?

1995 LeSabre ABS light


the anti-lock brake system is part and parcel of the traction control system. the abs has a $750.00 valve located in the engine bay on the right side (as you face the car from the front) the driver's side just behind the headlight. i had a mechanic who took it upon himself to remove, dismantle and clean and reassemble the unit, all to no avail but also without expense. the cost of the part was prohibitive since Blue Book on this car is just about $700.00. it will run and brake just fine without the abs or the traction control system either.
