Most abs faults start at the sensors in the wheels
can be dirt or other material between the sensor and the rotor, broken wiring, missing wiring, faulty wheel bearings allowing the rotor to touch the sensor tip
there is no real necessity for abs system as the antiskid action is only there to allow steering control under heavy braking
for easy stopping and moderate braking , it doesn't work.
it is an electronic controlled pump that maintains line pressure to foot brake pressure for when a wheel stops turning , the valve releases the ;line pressure for a split second and then reapplies the line pressure when wheel rotation is again recorded
get yourself a workshop manual for the vehicle ( any gm product ( suburban , s10, blazer ) will have the same system installed and the principle of operation is the same for all manufacturer models

ABS warning light stays on

One of your wheel sensors are defective. Have a mechanic troubleshoot it. You can still drive without the ABS. Your regular brakes will still work.

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

My ABS ligth stays on but my brakes work fine.

The ABS system is related to emergency stopping, not normal brake use, where you don't want the tires to lock-up when the brakes are hit very hard. ABS stands for Antilock Brake System. When the ABS light is on, the ABS system is not active. This means the ABS will not be Antilock when you need it. This does not mean you don't have brakes. The brakes you have are normal brakes without the added feature of antilock.

The light is on because a system fault has been detected. Most of the time this is a wheel speed sensor that has failed. Basically the system works by having 4 wheel speed sensors connected to a control unit. The control unit determines how much braking presure each wheel needs according to how much pedal presure you are applying, related to the vehicle speed, and the rotation speed of each wheel. If one wheel is spinning slower than the others that would mean it is locking up (less braking efficientcy) and the control unit then reduces the presure applied to that wheel so it doesn't lock up.

If a wheel speed sensor goes bad the entire system can't function so it shuts down and it is now a regular braking system. This means that it will work and feel fine to you, the operator. But in an emergancy, the ABS will not function and the brakes may lock up which is not as efficient as ABS.

I recommend you get it scanned for codes and find out what is wrong. It is a great safty feature that I think you are better off with, than without.

Some auto parts stores will scan your car for codes for free, like autozone and others. Call around and find that free scan. Then take it to a reputable shop, dealer, or your brother-in-law who is a master mechanic.

Good luck, and be safe!

Without any reason the "ABS failure ligth" came up car drives

your brakes will work just fine. the abs light means your car will not have abs. if you are ok driving your car without abs then dont worry about it. if you drive in a lot of snow or just want abs then i would take it to be serviced. it could be something like a wheel sensor that went bad or bad wire or you abs or if you replaced a caliper or something like that it could just be air in the lines but then you would notice that the brakes are spungy. it might not be a bad idea just to check the fluid level and go from there.
