Question about 2001 Chevrolet Suburban

Is there anything I need to do to the ABS system before replacing brake pads on a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL? Is brake pad replacement "straight forward" with ABS?

The ABS should only be involved if the hydraulic line is opened. Compressing the piston does not require opening the line so there should be nothing to do to the ABS. Watch that you don't damage or disconnect the ABS wire to the wheel when working on it.

Why does my brake light and the a b s light comes on when this vehicle has brand new calipers and pads on


Because the problem is not with pads and/or calipers. If the lights come on only when you brake, you may have a light bulb out. If they come on when you start the car and they stay on, you have a problem with your ABS system (anti-lock braking system). The systems self-check when you start the car, so the light should come on and then go out. If it comes on and stays on, the ABS system has failed. You need to have the vehicle serviced to repair the ABS system.

YEP BAD WHEEL BEARING WILL MAKE A ROARING LIKE NOISE WHILE IN MOTION.BAD WHEEL COULD PUT DRAG ON WHEEL WHICH CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON.YOUR WHEEL BEARING HAS THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR BUILT INTO IT.SO IF WHEEL BEARING BAD THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR PART OF ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON IF WHEEL BEARING BAD.MAKE SURE FRONT BRAKE PADS INSTALLED CORRECTLY IF NOT. YOU WILL GET TERRIBLE WHEEL NOISE ALSO.

ABS light on after replacing rear brake pads and rotors


There is ABS sensors at each wheel. Maybe damaged one, or metal stuck to the sensor. (It's like a small magnet)

ABS LIGHT ON COULD BE A BAD WHEEL SENSOR CAUSING ABS UNIT LOCK UP THAT WHEEL OVERHEATING OR YOU COULD HAVE FAULT IN THE ABS UNIT.TAKE VECHICLE TO GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP.LET THEM SCAN THE ABS BRAKE SYSTEM TO SEE WHATS CAUSING ABS LIGHT TO COME ON.

Brake and abs light is on


This lights on simply indicates that there are likely issues with the brake system of your car.

You don't need to panic as it will be one of the under-listed causes:-

1. Brake Pads needs to be replaced;
2. Brake oil/ fluid is low in level.
3. ABS system is malfunctioning.

You can have a look to see if the brake fluid is low or if the brake pads are going flat.

Also for the ABS I will just recommend you run a scan on the car brake system to know specifically what has ignited the ABS light.

There are few dedicated scanners for doing this.
e.g. Actron ABS Scan (see www.actron.com)

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

I just replaced the front brake calipers on my 2002 olds alero and am attempting to bleed the brakes per a Chilton manual. I have gone around several times but the brake pedal is still spongey even though...


I think you probably did a great job on bleeding the brakes . How about checking the condition of the pads and rotor. Hopefully you replaced them and forgot to mention it in your complaint. Especially if they were full of brake fluid from the bad calipers. Sometimes were so focused on getting to the new procedure we have never done and forget the obvious like correct installiation of the pads and new caliper brake hoses. Sit down have a snack and think over what you missed . I don't think it was in the bleeding.

2001 olds alero, When I step on the breaks it


Did you also replace the brake pads? If not, the wear from the warped rotors most likely caused uneven wear on the pads (not visible by looking at them, but apparent when you apply the brakes). This is probably causing it feel like the rotors are still warped. I don't believe your anti-lock brakes have anything to do with this.

I have replaced brake pads on many cars, but never on a car with ABS. How do you disarm the ABS system to change the brake pads on a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?


THERE IS NO NEED TO DISARM THE ABS SYSTEM WHEN REPLACING THE BRAKE PADS. SERVICE THEM AS YOU WOULD ANY OTHER VEHICLE YOU HAVE DONE. HOPE THIS HELPS!!
