    the ABS light is the warning light for the Anti-lock brake system. do you still have the user's manual for the vehicle? depending on the conditions of driving when the light came on, there could be a few reasons. the manual can help clear that up.

Wheel Speed Sensor-- is the most common. Check for codes and follow a diagnostic tree or chart to a successful conclusion.

Check for metallic contamination on the ABS sensors behind the hubs. Also, check to see if your parking brake is hanging up.

The headlight courtesy module is not timing out. The ABS light will not affect normal braking. It is not cost effective to repair and as old as your car is, I would just remove the ABS bulb from the dash.

Dash lights and headlights are flicker on my 2000 Buick LeSabre limited. Any solutions? Also the abs and traction control light won't go off.


Traction light is on because the abs is on.Traction control needs to have the abs system fully functioning to work.Most common cause of abs light is a wheel speed sensor.As for your lights flickering the alternator may be going out or you have a poor ground connection.Would check battery cables first to make sure they are tight.

Abs & traction light on 1997 buick lesabre


This is a fairly common problem, Gm has actually issued a service bulletin regarding this repair. The problem probably originates from one of your wheel speed sensors that is mounted inside one of your front wheel bearings. To be sure, you need to have the car scanned to find out which one and then you have to replace the whole bearing assembly because the sensor is integral to the bearing. The bearing is not hard to do but you will need some professional tools if you want to do it yourself. At a shop it should cost between 3 and 400 dollars complete.

How to change warning light bulbs, 97 Buick Lesabre Ltd


bulbs do burn out, but the dash will have places that are not always used for all models. i.e. if your car doesn't have ABS that light will not be used. To replace the bulbs you will need to remove the instrument cluster from the dash. its not to hard to do yourself, two phillips screwdrivers and some patience
