It will most likely be a wheel speed sensor / wheel bearing however the only way to know is to have it scanned by a professional. If you are also getting a rumbling noise while driving that pretty much confirms the wheel bearing diagnosis. It is highly recommended that the bearing and sensor are replaced as a unit.

Check to make sure abs is properly connected to the clips and not hanging loosely around wheel area should be clipped by connection if they are properly in place then need car scanned to find out what side sensor is causing problem-auto stores such as autozone and advanced auto can do scan for free

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

Why could abs light be on on a 2000 chevy caviler?


an abs sensor is detecting a problem somewhere in the ABS system. It may even be the sensor itself that has failed. You can take it to a tech or buy an in-expensive OBDII and test it yourself. It should give you a code, you can look that up online. Reset the tester and see if the light comes back on. good luck

1998 chevy express van 3500 front brakes and rear are new, front calipers are new but ABS light on dash is on, the front brakes smoke after a little while of driving. Thanks Joe


I'd first make sure the new pads are the correct size. Doesn't happen very often but maybe the parts person gave you the wrong size pads ( for the smoking problem). As for the ABS light, most newer cars will throw out codes if you wait too long to change them out, I would contact a chevy dealer or search online about reseting the code (light).

I am having trouble with the abs braking system on a 1998 chevy blazer. The yellow brake light is usually off for the first few minutes of driving and then comes on and stays on until the car is turned...


the yellow light is warning you that a problem exsists with the abs. unless you are experienced with brakes and abs would highly suggest you take it to a shop.

On my 1999 chevy caviler both my brake light and blinkers dont work besides the problem being the "pigs tail" what else could it be?


check the turn signal switch its self the brake light circuit is a main part of that switch and when you have both! turn light and brake light issues theres a 97% chance it's the turn switch itself

I have 1999 chevy cavalier. My ABS light is oh.


Drive it. Then have the rear abs brake sensors checked because they seem to be the first to go in a system like that. Someone with a scan tool should be able to read out any trouble codes in the abs system

2005 CHEVY +TRAIL BLAZER ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS ON


When the ABS light is on when driving there is a problem in the anti lock brake system and you will need to have it tested to find out what the problem is. As long as the light is on the ABS has been shut off by the computer until it is repaired. There could be problems with one of the wheel speed sensors, wiring or the ABS pump. On some vehicles the red brake light will come on too.
