Wheel speed sensors misadjusted, damaged , or metal shavings and other debree, since they are magnetic can give false readings from one of the wheel circuits. Over sized tires can give of false speed readings as well. there are many other causes including bad relay, control module, e.t.c. It is best to have the proper scan tool to diagnose an ABS problem

SOURCE: ABS stays on a 2001

If the ABS light stays on all the time, your Antilock Brake System (ABS) is malfunctioning. The most common problems on GM vehicles are failed wheel speed sensors and/or wheel bearing assemblies. Your vehicle is equipped with 2 wheel speed sensors for the front wheels and uses the signal from the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) for the rear wheels. There are several other possible causes as well. You must scan the Antilock Brake Control Module to find out why the light is on, then diagnose the fault accordingly.

No breaker. Inside the under hood fuse and relay box there is a relay and fuse. You need to take it to a shop and have them scan for the reason why the light is on. That way you don't throw parts at it until one of them fixes it.

My ABS and Brake light goes on alot. Also sometimes my gages will go up and down for no reason. That is what they call the GM shuffel. It happens to alot of GM vehicles.
I never had a problem with loosing power or the tranny stuck in second gear. Sounds electrical, if no one can help here, get that thing to a garage before your hurt.

2001 GMC Jimmy. Is there a fuse I can take out to disable the ABS system and just use the regular braking system so I can drive it into town and get it checked out and fixed properly? The ABS system is...


Under the hood there should be a fuse box, it's going to be one of the big fuses, had the same problem, 01 Tahoe. Found out it was a front bearing assembly. I replaced and it works fine now. Be carful as you will have no abs once fuse is pulled and FYI the abs light and break light will stay on as well. Good luck

ABS stays on a 2001 GMC Jimmy


This is a common issue, and is pretty easy to fix. There are ABS sensors on the wheels, and you have a bad one. Usually the wires become corroded, and are easy to spot. The unit is on the back side of the wheel assembly.

ABS light


Could be an issue with the sensor or the wires connecting to the sensor as these are all exposed to the elements. It'll be located just to the inside of the wheel assembly
