My ABS light is on and I had it checked and they said it must be something with the control unit or module, but before the light came on the blazer sometimes acted like it was not going to stop, what could...
hmm ok this is a tough one.. Its more than likely one of two things..
1.) the abs sensor.. this will account for the light being on and it will also account for the brake not working propperly.. to verify this,, Locate and remove the abs fuse.. Its in the fuse panel under the hood.,, under the cover is a diagram with the fuse layout.. remove the abs fuse and drive with the vehicle.. If your brake works perfectly then you need to change the abs sensor,,
2.) the second is the bran box / the ECU (control unit) ,, to verify this you will need to have a diagnostic machine (code reader) connect to the module and detect all the fault codes.. This is not likely but very possible.. Verify the sensor first and then check the control unit..
Now take into consideration that is the abs is not working propperly and you remove the fuse ,, YOUR BRAKE WILL WORK!!!! just the abs system wont,, you can drive your car safely without the abs,, it will just like driving a car with no abs or before they invented it.. what the abs does is hold and release quickly so you dont get an abrupt stop,, with the abs you will stop quicker so it will take a bit getting used to so you wont step on the pedal hard,,
