Question about 1996 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

3 Answers

Brake pads are good and plenty of brake fluid. Doesn't stop good and causes abs to kick on. If not brake problem is it abs? 1996 cheyanne 1/2 tn 4x4. Noticed mostly at stop signs and bottom of driveway. Just doesn't want to stop. The pedal goes down then the abs starts vibrating until it stops. Checked all the obvious,brake pads, and brake fluid.

    Thanks for your input. If it is an internal leak in the Master cylinder, wouldn't the brake fluid be low?

    Could be master cylinder. When you say your pedal goes down it sounds like you have internal leak in Master cylinder.

There was a recall on these. The wheel bearing sensors for the abs malfunction and cause a lot of funny stopping. I pulled the fuse out of mine "No ABS Now" but stops fine....like the old days

No it is still contanined and would just go past the piston and back into the reservoir. Just blows by and comes back.

Why is my ABS system kicking on for no reason on my 2009 trailblazer?


There is ALWAYS a reason.
Reasons that the ABS light will illuminate:
  1. Brake pads, brake shoes, rotors, or drums worn beyond allowable specification;
  2. Brake fluid level low, or brake fluid leaking;
  3. Failed ABS control unit;
  4. Failed ABS sensors at wheels

Impala 2008 abs need to fix


ABS is not how good something stops. Its a safety feature that kicks in when wheels lock up.

Stopping good is a matter of Brake pads, and brake rotors having a good surface. new pads wont work well on anything that is not a fresh machine job or new. Also make sure pads are not rusted in caliper brackets. Common when not greased upon install and winter conditions.
Stopping good also requires the hydraulic units to be working correctly. Make sure all caliper slides are working and not rusted in place which is very common for poor brake issues.
good luck

Anti lock brake light is on


Hello,
Here are 3 common causes for the ABS light to be on.
1. Low brake fluid. ( make sure the brake fluid isn't low.)
2. A faulty wheel speed sensor. ( you should have the four wheels checked. )
3. Your pads need to be replaced. ( once the pads are worn down to a certain level, it will cause the ABS light to come on.

I hope this helps you.

Brake and abs light is on


This lights on simply indicates that there are likely issues with the brake system of your car.

You don't need to panic as it will be one of the under-listed causes:-

1. Brake Pads needs to be replaced;
2. Brake oil/ fluid is low in level.
3. ABS system is malfunctioning.

You can have a look to see if the brake fluid is low or if the brake pads are going flat.

Also for the ABS I will just recommend you run a scan on the car brake system to know specifically what has ignited the ABS light.

There are few dedicated scanners for doing this.
e.g. Actron ABS Scan (see www.actron.com)

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

96 dodge caravan-when i go to stop the brakes make a noise like the abs is kicking in and the brake pedal does not want to go down(seems to be frozen in up position)have to pump the brakes in order to stop...


check the tone rings on the axles sometimes they crack and cause the abs to in gauge. If you find one that is cracked the axle has to be replaced

Abs light on always


Have you checked your brake fluid? It may be low or an indication that the brake pads are worn, causing the light to stay on.

Or you could just pull the fuse for the abs and not have abs but you won't wreck from pulsating pedal.
