There is no way to reset the ABS. The light indicates a problem and will need to be diagnosed and fixed. Most likely the ABS module failed. It can be rebuilt at modulemaster.com. Check out the price before commiting to the price the dealer will charge.

If your handy you can remove the module and still drive the car while waiting for the 10 day turnaround on the repair.

Most modules fail at around 5 years from new depending on usage.

    by the way the switch the book is talking about is a traction control on/off button. No all models have this. When you can shut the traction control off the ABS light will not come on. Just the traction light will come on. If the brake light/abs light/traction control light and in some cases the speedometer does not work then were looking into a diagnostics procedure to get to the cause.

Is it fairly easy to get to the ABS module or would the car need to be jacked?
I haven't had time to go to the dealer to have it replaced but in the meantime it's creating an awfully annoying noise and it's affecting my braking performance - sometimes the car skids a foot or two.
I read that pulling the ABS fuse would also be a temporary solution, can you confirm? If so any idea where I can find this fuse?
Thanks.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

How to turn off traction control on 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer


Alexandre, check in your owners manual for small off button on the shifter under the large engage button. If you do not want traction control on in your vehicle check your manual for traction control fuse location and remove fuse. I can not say this is a wise thing to do, because your traction control is a safety feature for your vehicle. ABS braking system will be lost if you pull the fuse also. Pulling the fuse will disable abs, traction and stability control. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

When do u use the traction control button on 2005 chevy equinox ?


Traction control is for safety. It reduces wheel spin. When it is turned on it is harder to lose control in slippery road conditions. Like doing donuts in the snow.

ABS and Traction Control Light On


Because the brakes were changed, either one of the sensors were broken when removing brakes or it has set a code. Go to your local autoparts store and have them reset the code. See if it comes back on. If it does you will need to look at the ABS sensors on each wheel and replace if damaged
