It sounds like a brake is out. Did you make sure to pull the parking brake release? That would do it to. But it definetly sounds like a bad brake.

ABS and Brake warning lights intermittent may be caused by a failing wheel speed sensor(ABS Sensor) and /or its connector. You may have one on each wheel hub(4WD) or if 2WD, a sensor may be on the rear axle differential center.

The ABS light comes on, and sure enough on slipery road conditions, there's no ABS. BUT when it's icy, the ABS light on the dashboard goes out, and checking to see if I have ABS, sure enough I do. It's...


the abs warning light also works with the electronic traction control, (or traction control,same system,different names) and when icy, stops the wheels from spinning,above about 15 mph.(the abs dont work under 5mph) so if im right regarding your question,your car is doing what its supposed to,stopping the driving wheels from spinning/locking up.the warning light comes on when one or the other is doing its job.(working).the trick is to drive so that the warning light doesnt come on..... boring.

abs fault if you feel it though the pedal its activating, it should not activated, you will probably need to replace the abs unit as it would be the valve in the pump. engine cuts out as its found a fault.

Dashboard red lights


Your ABS Computer is likely failing. They have problems with the solder joints on the circuit board, causing a code to be set and the lights to come on. Very common on this vehicle!
