You need to get out when you smell this and determine if its brakes or clutch disk. Go to each wheel and the try smelling under the hood..If its brakes they tend to stop very slowly when overheated and the clutch will slip when overheated so you should have some sort of sign when that smell is there.. With all those lights on sounds like you have other issues to address. SRS is air bag, ABS is anti lock brakes and check engine light is some sort of sensor input/out not functioning. You need to hit your local auto parts store and have them run the codes. You have quite a few issues to address. Most brake/muffler places do a free inspection so may not cost you anything to do get it checked out. Make sure you ask if the inspection is free, if not check another shop. Somoeon is doing it for free I guarantee..

Most likely brakes. ABS pump probably bad or circuit is out.

You can have engine codes scanner to be sure.

My SRS, ABS, and Brake lights stay on. Sometimes the Brake light will go out but sometimes it will stay on. The SRS and ABS lights are always on. The car seems to be driving okay.


brake light could be a sensor wire or the pads are worn out ,the srs light could be the wiring connections under the front seats ,the connectors need a clean or rubbish under the seat has dislodged them.Abs light coming on could be caused by the low brake pads but its doubtful more like one of the metal toothed rings is loose on the drive shaft ,also could be low on brake fluid if the pads have worn down and the fluid level has dropped

Burning smell,check engine light-misfire, rough idle 96 cavalier


Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.

Rr.ABS and the brake lights on


CHECK TO MAKE SURE WITH CAR RUNNING VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 VOLTS TO 14.5 VOLTS. USE A DIGITAL VOLT METER TO CHECK VOLTS AT BATTERY. WITH ENGINE OFF BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING BATTERY.THAT WILL MAKE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON AND A FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH WILL ALSO CAUSE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD.HAVE THE ABS BRAKES SCANNED.IN THIS CASE YOU ARE HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.BECAUSE WHEN BRAKE LIGHT COMES ON THATS WARNING BRAKE FAILURE BECAUSE THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS UNIT IS TOGETHER AS ONE.NOT SAFE TO DRIVE.COULD LOSE BRAKE CONTROL AT ANY TIME TOW IT IN.

Anti lock brakes


Often the vehicle's VIN number will have a digit that indicates whether you have ABS or not, and they can enter your VIN number to see whether you do. I'm surprised they didn't try this, but it may not be the case with Honda. If you have ABS, there will be a wheel speed sensor at each corner of the car, plugged into the wheel hub. You could check for that.
