Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

2001 Jimmy...abs and brake light come on about 50% of the time. When I turn the key further while the transmission is engaged it resets it sometimes but not always. Sometimes when I hit a hard bump these same lights turn on also. Not sure if this is related but I am now having intermediate problems with my cruise control. I am also able to put the brake pedal to the floor while stopped.

Brakes abs light and pulsating brakes


Too many possibilities. You need to have a scanner that does abs systems used on it and see what the codes are. This could be anything from a faulty wheel speed sensor to a bad abs module.

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.

I have a problem with my abs and trac off light being on all the time


Those are indicators of problems in the ABS and Transmission systems. In many cases the problem in the Transmission will cause the ABS to come on but if you have a caliper sticking it will give you traction control problems. The TCM light is the traction control system and that light will come on if the TCM is turned off so check for that and check you calipers and fluid level in the braking system. If the braking system is good then the problem is going to be the transmission and you will need to have a shop look at that.

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

The reset rate for vehicle computers vary by manufacturer, but 50-100 miles sounds good for the relearning process. As with the RPM's climbing unexpectedly, as a precaution I would look for a vacuum leak under your hood... it will be a hissing sound around some rubber hoses, as this can cause the RPM's to fluctuate and possibly give check engine light codes.

Abs and brake light come on sometime . had a person look at it and said i need a abs control module unit but the brake sytem is working very good


Your normal braking will work fine even if the ABS control module is defective. You will however have no functioning ABS in an emergency when it is needed. You can continue to drive it without ABS but if you want the ABS to work you will have to have it repaired.

ABS Problem in my 2000 Jimmy 4x4


the best way to diagnose this problem would be with a scan tool while driving and watching the speed sensors, or check all your wheel tone rings make sure there are no cracks and they are clean, also have the computer scaned for abs codes there should be a code that may tell you which wheel speed sensor is acting up,you can also check the wiring, these seem to chaf the wiring by the control arm .a bad wheel bearing may also cause this problem, i would start with a scan of the abs system,good luck.

At low speeds, there is a loud vibration when I press on the brake at random times or right afterwards. Sometimes the ABS light and Trac light come on. Then there is no vibration.


Sound's like the abs is trying to engage usually a wheel speed sensor or wiring to sensor cuases that.Have your repair shop check for abs codes and go from there.
