Please check that during the process of the cleaning the wires to the wheel sensors was remvoed by accident. Look under the car with a good light on the underside of the wheel drums.
One of them can be pluggged off.

Abs and brake light stay on in 2001 chevy tahoe


Seems the most likely is the control module, but could be affected by bad grounds or possibly a wheel speed sensor.
Read this thread, about 3 pages long, and has info and links for the control module fix and where to check the grounds.

Stabilitrak and ABS lights come on but car is running fine


Nope, but take it in. Brake problems are nothing to fool with They'll probabl tell you it's the ABS ECU. Not a cheap item.. However, it only affects the ABS system, not the brakes itself.

Abs light stays on also speedo stops working


Hi, I am new to the website. I am an automotive technitian. If the ABS light is on ,and the speedo wont work, your vehicle speed sensor (vss) is likely the cause! The ABS system depends on knowing the individual wheel speed and the overall vehicle speed in order to properly operate. The fact that your speedo also is out tells me that either the sensor is bad or there is a wiring problem. The ABS light will stay on and will probably be in "limp mode" until the problem is solved.....if you live in a snowy or icy place be careful because it probably wont work! If I am right, even a simple code scanner like an auto parts store has for free use will show a vss code since it will affect other systems in the car such as shifting points and fuel trim. I have no history on your car...and dont even know the type of car it is so I hope this has been helpful!!

My A B S light comes on then it will go off. I have a 1995 Accord. The brakes seem to be working just fine. Help ?


There must be an intermittent problem with your abs system, which causes the abs light to come on and then go off, as you say. It won't affect your brakes, just your anti-lock braking function. if that light is on. If it remains on, have it checked.

The abs light stays on. doesn't seem to,affect


A sensor for the ABS is faulting for some reason, maybe a sensor is bad or something with the system is wrong. It is what the indicator is for. You may not notice a problem but unless youre extreme braking you may not. I would suggest a brake system check.

ABS Light stays on, what does that mean? The brakes seem to work fine.


Hello. The ABS light is only alerting you to a possible problem with your Anti-Lock Brake system. It won't affect the operation of your brakes, but if the problem is still present/current your ABS system may not function in a panic stop situation. The computer checks the system and if a problem is found, the light comes on. If it was a one time failure the light may go out after a few driving cycles. If the problem continues and the light stays on then there is a problem somewhere in the ABS system.

2001 chevy s10 blazer abs light stays .


The abs is a add on for the brakes that when the tires come into a skid or slid they wont lock up..Your brakes will still work great with the abs disabled but your brakes will lock up if you push on the brakes hard enough to stop.Mainly abs works in slippery conditions not letting the tires lock up and keep the car rolling instead of making it slide..But no effect of the brakes will happen..Just make sure your fluid is full and there are no leaks and if you want to get them check you can stop by your local Auto Zone and they will scan your car for free and tell you what sensor is bad..I hope this was helpful to you...Have a great night
