Worn brake pads,or dirt on the anti-lock sensors,clean them and see if that works,also check the brake pads,if they are worn past the sensors,the anti-lock light will come on.also your brake light on you dash will light up if they become to far worn.

When the anti lock light comes on it is a warnig telling you that the brakes will operate normally but without antilock. This light can be set by a number of things and must be checked with the proper scanner to find out what is causing the light to come on.

You have a bad abs sensor the reason it is going on when you move is the computer is trying to read the miles per hour on the wheels one of your sensors is not reading properly. Your regular brakes will work but your abs will not when the light is on. Have autozone check for codes they do this for free:)

I have aztek 2001, and anti-lock light on the dash is constantly on. We changed engine oil last week but it still ask for changing oil,and alarm/bell is turning on every time when we turning left or right,...


The most common cause for the abs light to come on is a bad wheel speed sensor.The oil light was probably not reset afte the oil was change. Try turning the key and pumping the gas pedal 3 times with in 5 seconds.The light should start flashing or it may have to be reset through the radio.As for the alarm would it be possible to elaborate on that?Is it the same sound as leaving your key in the ignition or not fastening your safety belt?

I have a 2004 Pontiac Aztek. The AWD Disable and Anti Lock lights are on and it doesn't want to accelerate? Anyone know or have had this problem?


The AWD Disable and Anti Lock lights can result from a bad wheel bearing as well as a bad speed sensor. They'll also come on if you have the spare tire on. Not sure if the acceleration problem is linked to the warning lights. Most car part stores have scanners they can check out the problem.

My anti lock light , awd disable


Hello! Did you make sure that the plug is fully seated and the sensor harness wires aren't damaged? Also - if the light came on and that is what prompted the change - you'll need to get the trouble code reset. Any major auto parts dealer can do this for you - free of charge.

Aztek won't start,key locked in ignition, service engine light on


It is the security chips in the keys. Has this car been wrecked? Was this car made in Mexico? GM had the bright Idea of creating a security system that would do exactly this, I know on cars made in Mexico (like the HHR) You can reset the power and get the key back out, but vehicle will have to be reprogrammed with the master key. This involves turning the key from off to run position without ever going past run (i.e. start position) leave key in this position for 30 minutes. Turn key back to off for 30 seconds then back to run for 30 minutes. repeat this step three times. the last time, after 3rd 30 minute period, turn key off for 30 seconds and then try to crank. Please note this only works if the original master key is being used. You can then reprogram the second key following a similar sequence, only master key that is working has to be inserted to let alarm system know that vehicle is not being stolen only that you are trying to reprogram a key. If original master key is not being used then vehicle has to be taken to the GM dealership to program keys and possible key module replacement.

Anti-lock n AWD


Call the dealership. I seem to remember that Pontiac had a recall for this problem just recently where the antilock brake system would lock op and the system caused people to get into accidents. This is a manufacture defect
