SOURCE: ABS

My 2004 grand am di the same thing. The shop didn't know the issue they said it was probably the sensor and there was no harm in driving it. A month later my car made this awful sound like it was dragging on the ground. I took it in and it turned out that the HUB bearing was the issue the whole time. $500 later it sounded new again and the ABS light never came on again.

SOURCE: 99 CHEVY trouble shoot code P0171

LEAN TROUBLE CODES (P0171 or P0174) A code P0171 or P0174 indicate the engine is running lean. This means there is too much air and/or not enough fuel. You can confirm the engine is running lean by looking at Short Term Fuel Trim (STFT) and Long Term Fuel Trim (LTFT). Normally, STFT and LTFT should be plus or minus 8 from zero. If STFT and/or LTFT are more than about +10 or higher, it indicates the engine is running LEAN. Negative numbers (-10 or more) indicates the engine is running RICH. A lean fuel condition can be caused by:

* Low fuel pressure due to a weak pump or leaky fuel pressure regulator. (use a fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure at idle)

* Dirty fuel injectors. (try cleaning the injectors)

* Vacuum leaks at the intake manifold, vacuum hose connections or throttle body. (Use a vacuum gauge to check for low intake vacuum)

* Leaky EGR valve. (Check operation of EGR valve)

* Leaky PCV Valve or hose. (Check valve and hose connections)

* Dirty or defective Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF). (Try cleaning the MAF sensor wires or filament with aerosol electronics cleaner. Do NOT use anything else to clean the sensor, and do not touch the sensor wires)

______________________________-- Causes A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.
Possible Solutions Possible solutions include:
  • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

Sounds like your vehicle speed sensor is bad. The VSS gives your electronic engine control information necessary to control your transmission and ABS for the rear brakes as well as your speedometer. You should have a fault code but I would try that if I was you. Just my 2 cents worth. Hope that helps

The amber ABS warning light is telling you that there is a problem with the ABS system. When the antilock brakes don't work you just have good old fashion non antilock brakes. When the red brake warning light is on it could be a couple of things. (unless you are talking about the brake light on the back of the car is stuck on) the red brake warning light on the dash tells you when the parking brake is on and it also tells you when there is a problem with the hydraulic system. Some cars will also turn this light on when the brake fluid is low, (not sure if the Cavalier does this)

The ABS system is computer controlled and needs to be scanned for trouble codes to diagnose the problem.

I can't say I have ever heard of a "brights" indicator flashing, Do the headlights go bright and dim as it is flashing? Is it a slow on and off like a turn signal or faster than that?

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.

07 Chevy Silverado The motor caution light came on then came on the ABS light. seems like it's in third gear I hooked up the Solis I am getting three trouble codes one under the engine one under tran


Try checking the abs madule, that could be causing all the problems, such as the trans code and engine code. Also check the grounds cable maybe rusty or lose. I had a Chevy Tahoe and it was almost the same problems and it turn out to be the abs madule. Hope this helps good luck.

I am looking at purchasing a used 1995 chevy camaro. The ABS light and the security light are on. Are these big issues to repar?i


Both can be detailed problems. The ABS (anti lock brakes) can be a safety and an expensive fix. I'd have an independent inspection done before purchasing.

On a 3500 you should have plenty of room, just make sure if you have anything like ABS that you make all the tires the same size.

I have 1999 chevy cavalier. My ABS light is oh.


Drive it. Then have the rear abs brake sensors checked because they seem to be the first to go in a system like that. Someone with a scan tool should be able to read out any trouble codes in the abs system
