I have a 99 chevy tahoe 4X4 thats giving me problem.when pushing down on brake pedal it pushes back then the ABS light comes on and then the truck starts revving up and not shifting gears right and se


This could be a wheel speed sensor. The ABS module does not do a rationality test to sensors. This must be monitored by a scanner WHEN acting up as they send information to the controller which makes the decision if the car has traction or not one of the sensors is sending false data. this happens at low speeds 15 mph or less . the controller does not tag it as a bad reading because it is random even during your brake application. As for the transmission not shifting this also can be a bad sensor on the transfer case output shaft. Does speedo act crazy during this shifting problem. check for loose ground straps.

ABS Problem in my 2000 Jimmy 4x4


the best way to diagnose this problem would be with a scan tool while driving and watching the speed sensors, or check all your wheel tone rings make sure there are no cracks and they are clean, also have the computer scaned for abs codes there should be a code that may tell you which wheel speed sensor is acting up,you can also check the wiring, these seem to chaf the wiring by the control arm .a bad wheel bearing may also cause this problem, i would start with a scan of the abs system,good luck.

ABS Light and Parking brake light on


sounds like your vehicle speed sensor is going out. it's the modern equivilent of a speedometer cable. it tells the computer how fast your going which the computer uses to determine shift points, abs function, and speedometer readings. they usually act up a bit before they go out. it confuses the computer. normally located in the extension housing at the rear of the transmission where the spedometer cable would be on an older vehicle

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON


The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
get the abs system repaired

ABS light comes on 97 Jimmy


The Airbag and ABS are separate systems and un-related, the speedo is related to the ABS light, I think if you run a self test on the system computer there will be a trouble code for the transmission speed sensor, the output of this sensor is used by the ABS and the speedometer. The airbag is most likely a defective rotating contact under the steering wheel, we techs call it a clock-spring contact because of it's shape, it allows the connection from the steering column to the airbag. CAUTION! If you want to change out this contact the steering wheel needs to be pulled, follow factory recommendations on dis-arming the airbag, it can be very dangerous if you don't.
