Hi there,

Yes...your brakes will work normally, but the ABS systems works independently, and will remain switched off until the fault has been rectified (you just won't have any anti-lock braking ability).

The first thing you need to do is, extract the diagnostic codes from your vehicle's computer (or have a dealership scan it for codes) - this will immediately identify which component/s of the ABS system are either at fault, or require adjustment.

Could be anything from a wheel sensor out of adjustment, faulty sensor, faulty pump/accumulator etc.

Cheers,

2005 Chevy impala brake pedal pulsation with brand new rotors installed


Is your ABS working properly? Under heavy braking the ABS should engage and 'pulse' the brakes on/off. It is normal to feel the brake petal flutter or pulse under your foot.

Under light braking there should be no pulsing as the ABS does not engage and you have changed the rotors and pads.

Abs and traction control light remain on.brakes were checked and are fine.any suggestions.


Most likely one of the wheel ABS sensors is defective, it makes the vehicle think that one wheel is turning at a different speed to the others which causes issues for both the ABS and the traction control.

2004 IMPALA ABS LIGHT AND SERVICE LIGHT ON


Hello tucky56, The ABS light stands for, " Anti-lock brake system ", it is a saftey feature designed to try and prevent cars from skidding when a driver panics and slams on the brakes. Although your normal brakes should still work, ( as long as your brake warning light isn't on ), the manufacturer recommends you take the car in to an authorized dealer and have it checked right away.
The service light being on is a reminder that it's time for your vehicle to have scheduled maintenance performed.
It is important that you take your vehicle to your machanic, or an authorized Chevrolet dealer as soon as you can for both of these issues.
It was my goal to provide you with timely, and accurate information.
If this information was helpful, please take a second to click on the, " this was helpful " button.
Thank you!
