What is dragging, the car? The ABS sensors are in the wheel bearings, if a bearing is going bad, the car will make a humming sound that gets louder with speed, they could set off the ABS light. Also, a stuck brake caliper could make a similar but usually louder sound, and the resulting slow wheel could set off the ABS alarm.

Lift the front end and spin the wheels, one will sound like its dragging. Take it off and then look at the rotor and pads. The rotor should be nice and silver, not bluish black, indicating overheating. If they're fine, it's probably a wheel bearing. You can do that yourself, but it requires a LARGE socket (most are somewhere around 1&7/16 and require a 3/4 inch socketwrench) so you may just want to have it done at a shop.

My antilock light keeps coming on and i couldn't pass smog because of my back breaks but the pads looke good what should i do


It is probably the antilock system itself which is computer controlled. You can just pull the fuse and not use the anit-locks.

2001 olds alero, anti lock light on


I had the same problem when I first got my Alero. The problem turned out to be a bad wheel bearing. Seems odd, but I guess it's a common problem with Aleros. It's held up for two years without any further incident.
