This sort of thing can happen and quite often it means nothing.check the brake fluid and let it sit for 30mins as the brakes may be hot

    Also you might want to take a look at the brake fluid to make sure it has enough fluid at the master clyender.low fluid could trigger the light as well.

It sound like a wheel sensor. Down under the brakes on all four tires there should be a wire that goes in by the hub. This is a magnetic sensor that reads a gear connected to the rotating assembly of the hub. It counts the teeth on the gear as they go by and turns this information into something your on board computer can read. If it thinks one tire is spinning faster than the other, it believes you are losing traction and activates traction control if you have it. It also works when braking. If you go form 30 mph to 0 instantly, it know that the tires are locked up and you are sliding. If there is no read from this sensor, it triggers the abs light. Please check this sensor and the wiring to it.

Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

Abs light on


Have to get it into a shop and get the codes read,could be dozens of reasons.
However don't worry about the braking system,if the red brake lite is out
the abs lite means the anti-lock will not operate.But the base brakes will work fine.(you will be able to lock the wheels up if you hit the brakes too hard is all)

Check the wires that go to your wheels for the ABS. They are probably bare from stones hitting them, and shorting out the system.

2001 GMC Jimmy


i believe you have 2 seperate issues. the abs/brake lite issue i would suspect a front speed sensor, i have replaced many. does the vehicle have an odd stopping feeling just as you come to a stop? the second part could be an issue with fuel quality(who knows these days!) seems coincidental it happened right after filling, other than tune-up parts, other suspects are mass air flow sensors, coolant temp switches, even 02 sensors, is engine lite on? maybe have it scanned to be sure nothing is stored in computer. (autozone will scan for free)
