Take your car to some one like autozone where they can pull codes on your truck, more then likely its going to be a speed sensor to one of your wheels. The speed sensor for your ABS comes with the hub bearing assembly, the hub bearing will have to be replace.

I own a 2012 chevy impala Lt soemtimes when i start my car my stablitrak, traction control, ABS light and service tire monitoring system light come on but most of the times they come on when i'm driving...


Brakes have nothing to do with all those codes

After the brake work, the shop can road test &
diagnose the codes for you.

If you get the codes you can google them & see
what they mean

REAR ANTI-BLOCK LIGHT IS ON ALL THE TIME


You mean ABS? If thats the case you need to take your car to a ASE certified mechanic and have them check it. You can take your car to Autozone to have a free test done to see what the exact problem code is. Then they will tell you what you need to have done. However your ABS is essential to your braking as it stops your wheels from locking up and sliding when you brake. However its not mandatory to have it replaced (can be very expensive fix) just be sure to come up slow on stops rather than trying to brake quickly or you could slide right through the stop. I myself have a 99 Chevy Malibu that the ABS (antilock-brake-system) has went out on. I've drove it for close to 40k miles like this and only slid a few times. But I would have it checked out to make sure it's not something more major. Hope this helps:)

Abs light brake light on not shifting


look under the truck at the ****** and check the wiring to the sensors if good may be a bad sensor,also check the wiring and connections to the abs wheel sensors [ located from frame to the hub behind the rotors ] the abs also acts as speed sensor if problem was with an abs sensor at the[ hub] wheel usually set the brake system to normal power brakes [if u hit brakes hard will lock up or skid wheels] with the abs light coming on if the speed sensor at ****** malfunction can and usually causes shift problems

I want to disable abs and trac control for a chevy 2002 cavalier,keeps having problems went throught it with a awsome mechanic and found no issues at all im sick of this **** every winter. I want answers...


one way to disable the abs brakes is to go under the hood and remove the abs relay, the box is located under the hood on the drivers side next to the battery just pull it out and your brakes will be like regular brakes the only problem is that your brake light and traction light will stay on but if you can put up with them then that will fix your problem. hope this helps.

OK, if the ABS light is on one should scan it with an OBD-II ABS Brake Scan tool like Actron's ($99 to $116 on Amazon.com).

This will likely tell you which wheel has a bad speed sensor.

There could be an internal fluid leak on the master cylinder which needs to be addressed before it's safe to drive.

It would be nice to have the ABS portion of your braking system fixed at the same time.

You may be looking at a new ABS Brake Wheel Speed Sensor which is sometimes put into the hub permanently (requiring a new hub).

ABS, Brake Light Are On


ABS is near the breaks when you take the tire off and the break pads you will see it it is very small part that is a sensor. mine went on my car when the guys were putting my breaks on it it really has not made to much of a difference in the breaks. they are costly so I just deal with the ABS light for now til summer
