Question about 2001 GMC Sierra C/K3500
ABS stand for Anti-Lock Braking System. It means thatthere is a malfunction in your car anti-lock brake system. Your abs light probably stays on because there is something wrong with your breaks. You need to get the abs system on your car checked by a mechanic.Your abs is shutoff by your computer until the repair is made. Perform a simple test. drive your vehicle and carefully do an emergency stop ,check if the abs works. if it does there's no problem that requires bleeding. Bleeding is only done if there is air in the system or if you are changing any part that would require you to disconect a hose or a line. you may have a pressure problem or simply a bad sending unit. to find air in the system just put pressure on the brake pedal if slowly goes down to the floor then you know you need to bleed the system.
