Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada

You have a stored trouble code(s). Your vehicle needs to be tested with a scantool to determine cause. If you dont understand what that means, please seek a qualified repairshop or technician who has the proper scan equipment. There are over 1300 different codes that vehicle has that can illuminate the service engine lamp, likely only 1 of them is yours...but you need to know which. DO NOT try and turn off the light! (If anyone says you can disconect the battery and turn it off, dont listen to that lunatic!) the light itself isnt dangerous, and it indicates that the code data is still stored and in memory available to a technician to help determine exact cause of the fault. If you erase the code and turn off the light with a battery disconnect, crucial diagnostic info could be lost that may turn a 10 minute diagnostic into 2 hours or longer...all of which you could reasonably expect to be billed for. Ge tthe car checked and the technican who checks it can turn the light off after repairs are completed.

you will need to take it in for a diagnosis scan. this Will scan for trouble codes that will direct you and your mechanic to the issue at hand. it will also tell you how to fix this issue as well. once this problem is fixed, the light will shut off.
In most cases, it a failed sensor of some sort. most auto zones will scan the ecm for free.

Have the ABS codes scanned. This will get you started in the right direction. Possibility is that one or more of the wheel speed sensors is not working or intermittent - could be wiring or connectors on these as well. Another possibility is the EBCM, Electronic Brake Control Module. I believe the EBCM will throw 1216 code in many cases. THese can be rebuilt online for about $150.00.
The more likely problem is the wheel speed sensors. THese are an integral part of the wheel hub. About $100.00 each for the part. About $250.00 each to have them replaced. They can be tested with an AC voltmeter by spinning the wheel. Also, they should read roughly 850 ohms resistance. The ABS codes will tell you which ones are not reporting.
