Look under the hood where the ABS unit sits.(on drivers side)

Make sure the engine is NOT Running and the key is OFF. Also check that the parking brake is Not Engaged at this time.

First unplug the two wire connector on the ABS unit. IIRC the wire colors for this connector are Red and Black, and they are of a fairly thick gauge.

The ABS/Brake light will remain on at this time if you start the motor, so skip that and look for a second connector on the ABS unit. This one has multiple wires and are much thinner gauge than the first connector. **Unplug this connector. With key OFF, pump the brake pedal 10-15 times. Start the motor and there should be no ABS or Brake lights illuminated on the dash.

You just completely eliminated the ABS Unit from your braking system and will only have NON- ABS power brakes from now on. The ABS unit will only act as an extended brake fluid reservoir and will not influence braking an any way...you will have to pump the brakes yourself if needed.

On my personal vehicle...also a '94 S10, I went one step further and fabricated an ABS pump elimination kit that allowed me to physically remove the entire unit and tie the lines back into the system using a simple valve found on many domestic master cylinders. I may fab up some kits if there is any interest, but it's really not needed...I'm just anal about my vehicles.

**NOTE: Some GM ABS units have two additional plugs besides the two wire connector, if so just unplug them both.

How to repair abs EBCM


EBCM relay is the actual fault code cause. EBCM stands for Electronic Brake Control Module. ECBM stands for Electronic Brake Control Module. It is the big part that the brake lines go into and back out of from the MasterCyl and to the Brakes. It is also the ABS motor all in one. The relay is under the hood at the Fuse/Relay center just inbetween the EBCM/ABS and AirIntake. Relays are big and square. The underside of the Fuse/Relay center cover has the ID and placement embossed into it of everything in the F/R center. Be sure to check the fuses first. The relay needs power to operate and the EBCM or ABS or Brake fuse will be the one for it. Good luck!

ABS/Parking Brake?Service Engine Lights are on But Runs Great


Does ABS work properly? Get on dirt road and try to lock brakes (do this carefully insuring no police car tailgating,lol) Could be bad wheel speed sensor. Check codes with scan tool capable of reading ABS and trans codes.

2003 Trail Blazer ABS light is on and I have no antilock brakes. How do I test to find the problem?


Hi

if you have no antilock brakes then it can only be 2 faults I can think of, either the fuse for the ABS has blown or the abs pump has failed. also there are 4 sensors one per wheel for the ABS are you sure these are all good, normally this will tirigger the light but the ABS should still work.

I would check the fuse + relay, and see if the ABS pump is getting power to it before going any further. Do you have a volt meter

Was there a recall on Ford Windstars 1999-2003 for the ABS module? I've read so many incidents like the one I'm having of the ABS and brake lights staying lit. If so, what are the steps that have to be...


The 2001 windstar does not have a recall on the ABS. There is a TSB but this is just a message to help out the repairer, its not a free warranty repair. The only recall you most likely have open is the speed control recall which is not associated with the ABS concerns common to the windstar.

2000 ford windstar... electrical mess!!


one reason for that fuse to blow is a bad brake pressure switch on the master cylinder. could be a
warranty/recall item. can also leak brake fluid. also check behind each wheel for any sign of brake fluid,
particularly the rear wheels if you have rear drum brakes. fixed one here recently where the vehicle's jack
came loose in the right rear compartment and short that circuit. make sure your jack is stowed properly.

good luck

Locate ABS relay for 1994 Mercury Sable


ABS light on problems are either the result of bad wheel sensors, bad connectors, or bad ABS relay.

The relay is usually mounted to the top of the ABS module (it was on my '01 Tahoe). And until mine went out, I didn't know these things were problematic. I found a place in Moscow, IA that rebuilds them for $150 and gives a 5 year warranty. You pull your off, send it to them, and have it back in less that a week.

Find their website by Googling ABS repair, Moscow, IA. They have a troubleshooting guide and everything on their website.

Abs sound when brakes applied i have had no warning signs of brake problems from my suv , it's a 1998 blazer , 4 door. the sound and feel of the abs kicks in before i put much pressure on the brake at all...


I can't remember the exact names of the GM products that wer recalled for ABS brake malfunctions, google the make,name, and year of your car with the phrase recalls..you'll get several lists that will tell you if your vehicle was recalled or a service bulleting was issued for that problem.

Hope this helps
