    thanks, however if it does not switch off the ABS light, then it also does not solve my problem, since switching off the ABS light (temporarily) is exactly what I am trying to do! How can this be achieved?

Performing this task will not turn the ABS light off. The ABS control unit and Powertrain Control Module (PCM) manage the entire system via inputs from various sensors and programmed decisions which are stored within the unit. This management system includes the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS), pump motor, various electronic solenoids, ABS wheel sensors and an internal self-diagnostic mode. The main function of the ABS control unit is to perform calculations on the signals received from each one of the sensors at the wheels. This will enable it to control the system by actuating solenoid valves that regulate the flow and pressure of the brake fluid to each wheel. The system was designed with a sub-function that gives driving signals to the pump motor as well as signals the self diagnostic mode which is a necessity for backing up the anti-lock braking system.
The module is located and illustrated below. I do not recommend disconnecting and leaving it disconnected for safety reasons as well as other problems that can occur.

    The system has sensed a fault, therefor has alerted you by lighting the malfunction light. The correct way would be to repair the ABS system, and is most likely a bad wheel sensor. The only other way to shut off the light is to erase the code with a code reader, but it will only come back on. There is no way of just disconnecting the light with out taring part the entire dash board to get to the light.

95 Regal Custom, ABS code #95 brake switch circuit and no brake lights. Replaced SLS still no change.

Check the brake light switch (location pedal) unplug the switch & bridge the wires & if the brake lights come on the switch is faulty. all you are doing by bridgeing the wires is bypassing the switch. What is SLS?

Brake and abs lights stays on in a 2003 gmc safari wile driving after a small period of time. put new pads and there's no leaks in the calipers

Have the ABS Distribution Unit/Computer checked at the dealer.

NOTE: ABS Unit located under the vehicle, under the drivers seat. Listen to it with the vehicle running with no brake on... if you hear ABS motor running continuously, unplug ABS fuse in fuse block under hood to turn ABS motor off and be able to use vehicle in the meantime whether you decide to get the ABS fixed or not.. This will not affect brake operation, but will disable ABS feature. ABS and Brake idiot lights will remain on. No way to turn them off short of having the correct repair done. ABS Distribution Unit/Computer is very expensive part and requires expensive labour for replacement.

I have a 1997 Blazer. The ABS light comes on intermittently. When the ABS light is on the power windows and blower motor do not work. When the ABS light is off everything works just fine. Help????

That sounds strange about the power windows and the blower motor not working when the ABS light comes on. I happen to have a 99 Chevy blazer and I had the ABS light come on several times. There are ABS sensors on the two front wheel bearing hubs. If you take off the front wheels you will be able to see a black electrical cable that has 2 wires inside of it. This cable is coming directly from the ABS sensor on the wheel hub and is strapped to a bracket the is on the upper ball joint. From the hub it then goes to a plug connector that is under the protective flap that you lift to change your spark plugs. What I found that is a common problem is that wire tends to corrode or doesn't have enough slack in it when making turns and starts to pull and break. Examine that cable and if you see any breaks in it, that will cause the ABS light to come on. Also if you can get to the plug underneath the flap, unplug it and use a multimeter to see if you are getting any resistance on the two wires. If you aren't getting any resistance then your sensor is bad or you have a broken wire to the sensor. On my vehicle the ABS light kept on coming goin on and off intermitently and I found that wire from the sensor to the plug had a break in it. I stripped the wires back, spliced them together, soldered them and I used heat shrink tubing to cover the connections. The ABS light went out and it has been fine ever since. Hopefully this will solve your problem as well.

My 1995 honda preludes emergency brake doenst work, when you pull it up it comes up easy and the break light does come on, also my ABS light is on and wont turn off

The parking brake problem could be rear brakes out of adjustment, a broken parking brake cable, or a parking brake cable in need of adjustment.

The ABS light mosy likely has nothing to do with your parking brake problem and will have to be diagnosed by first gathering the ABS fault codes from the ABS computer.

Abs motor run after ignition switch is shut off on 2000Expedition

the quickest way to check if the ABS motor is working properly, is to switch the relay with another to verify it is not just a stuck open relay! if this doesnt solve it, have a scan done on ABS system to verify component function......good luck, marty

2001 f150 abs started running when I started engine

this problem is better delt with a dealer or up to date shop, there are a multitude of things that could be wrong, wheel speed sensor short, internal abs module problem, wiring for the abs module(pcm to abs communication or vise verse) this is one of those situations where you need the dealership computer communication to see what is going on.
the only thing you can do is check wiring at the moment, the abs will need to be "talked" to find the issue faster.

Battery drains, abs lines melting hot, new battery and alternator

This gona sound ignorant and obvious but you have a short in the abs sys or ECM -----get a code reader from Advance auto to see if you can pinpoint the issue----you give them a deposit then when you return code reader they refund your deposit---oh have you changed anything in the vehicle such as radio----added speakers---had an accident--new ign sys etc etc---GL
