Your brake calipers may be sticking to the brake rotor causing your abs sensor to come on. If it sticks to the rotor for an extended period of time, it could cause the caliper to actually weld itself to the rotor. I am assuming it is doing this in the front. If this is the case, you will need to replace both brake calipers, both rotors and a new set of brake pads. It is more economical to put the better parts back on it, if you can afford it.

2000 Chevy K3500 No Breaks. Bled breaks, not losing fluid, ABS and break lights on. Hydraulic booster system. makes hissing sound when breaks applied???

I think I would get the body computer scanned for trouble codes and find out why the ABS warning light is on first.
The hissing noise usually means the booster is leaking vac but if the booster was faulty the brake pedal would be hard to push.

When i went to start my 2005 chevy cobalt my T/c light came on also at the same time my abs light kicked on! what could be the problem?

Since both of these systems use the same wheel speed sensors, I would start there. The only way to not just throw parts at it by trying to guess what sensor it is would be to have a code scanner that reads ABS codes and it'll tell you exactly what sensor has failed. It would be worth it to pay a shop to scan the ABS codes so you don't have to replace all of them to make sure you get the right one.

ABS and AC lights comes on while driving

ABS and AC lights are separate issues.

ABS is usually due to a dirty or bad wheel speed sensor.
AC light has to do with the freon charge being low (r134a refrigerant pressure low).

2006 chevy aveo abs break light comes on. breaks shutter when pressed while light is not on. when light is on I have no problems breaking

Put a scanner on the vehicle and get the code .
Obviously its an ABS PROBLEM and not the hydralic portion of the system.
Either a wheel sensor or the module were my experiences with your problem.
Once you get the code do the repair necessary ( use a shop manual this is not a difficult procedure to do)
Good luck

Why does reduce engine power light comes on chevy

That is a hard problem to pin point without knowing what codes the computer has stored. It can be any number or sensors or engine problems.

You can go to most auto parts stores and they will pull the codes for you for free.
