First add brake fluid.

Second, have someone check for code in the abs system. This car has a problem with the harnesses to the front wheel speed sensors. The have a prolbem with the connectors and the wires break inside the plastic cover. The harnesses can be bought at a dealership and are not hard to install.

Worst case a hub may be bad.

Is the brake fluid at the correct level?
This may be triggering the whole series of lights.
If the fluid is OK.....meaning FULL TO THE TOP.......tap the master cylinder to dislodge the low fluid sensor which may be stuck at the low level.

Unhook the battery for about 15 minutes.

be sure you have the code for the radio if it's the anti-theft variety.

Abs & brake warning lights come on. if i push the hand/emergency brake and then release it the warning lights turn off. when i ride the brake as i am coming to a stop and release the brake to drive...


{: ) Check first if your brake fluid is low. Better top it up at maximum level. Look also for possible brake fluid leaks. It can also be a fluid sensor or wheel speed sensors at fault. If the warning lights persist, I suggest a scan tool vehicle check to effectively pinpoint the main cause of the warning light issue.

2004 IMPALA ABS LIGHT AND SERVICE LIGHT ON


Hello tucky56, The ABS light stands for, " Anti-lock brake system ", it is a saftey feature designed to try and prevent cars from skidding when a driver panics and slams on the brakes. Although your normal brakes should still work, ( as long as your brake warning light isn't on ), the manufacturer recommends you take the car in to an authorized dealer and have it checked right away.
The service light being on is a reminder that it's time for your vehicle to have scheduled maintenance performed.
It is important that you take your vehicle to your machanic, or an authorized Chevrolet dealer as soon as you can for both of these issues.
It was my goal to provide you with timely, and accurate information.
If this information was helpful, please take a second to click on the, " this was helpful " button.
Thank you!

Glow plugs warning light + brake lights on


I had EXACTLY the same problem with a friends car i was doing work on.
Your problem is almost certainly a faulty brake light switch. This is a common fault and brings on the dash lights you describe. The switch is located just above the brake pedal and is easy to fit. If you can get the OBD codes read...My guess is it will show up this switch as faulty.
Good luck
