Good Day,

The easiest solution is to locate the abs fuse in the fuse box. Remove that fuse and ABS is now disabled(this will trip you abs light), brakes will function normal but keep in mind you will lock the wheels up under heavy braking. Possible cause are bad abs sensors, or bad abs module. If you don't mind no abs then problem solved, otherwise take it to a shop and have a code pulled from the abs module to diagnose further.

Hope this helps and Good Luck

How do I stop a whining sound that comes on when I shut the truck off. In the area of the front of engine. Kills the battery.


No if you have traction control system that is what is running and drawing the battery. Shut the truck off and unplug it . The noise should stop and the battery will stay up. Price out the electronic part and if it is not reasonable. Check on line or the junk yard. good luck.

I have a 2002 chevy suburban and after the ignition is turned off I hear what sounds like a motor or pump running. I had a dead battery when I left work and had to jump it to get it started.It ran fine on...


Hello: It sounds like the motor/pump assembly is running all the time. You can unplug the electrical connector on the unit. The assembly is located on the frame about halfway back on the drivers side. The relay for the pump motor is integral with the anti-lock module but the module will have to be replaced to replace the module. The relay mab stuck, if the electric pump motor is pulling to many amps it could cause the relay to stick.

01 Suburban with abs system. abs light came on


A relay controls the ABS motor. You can trace the wires running to it. The next time you shut the engine off unplug the relay. If that shuts it off get a new relay for the old one will not open its circuit to shut off the motor to the ABS motor

My abs relay motor continously runs even with the car off, and killing my battery. 95 j30 infiniti


For a short term fix unplug the ABS relay. Your ABS light will stay on, and you won't have Anti lock breaks but you will be able to start your car which is always nice.
If you actually want ABS they try replacing the ABS relay, this will probably do the trick

2001 suburban abs motor will not turn off


The ABS relay should be located in the fuse box located on the drivers side inner fender in the engine compartment. Lift the lid and check the location diagram on the inside cover to locate the correct relay/fuse.

A related issue may be a loose ground wire. There is one located on the top rear of the engine block. It is a bolted connection. Remove this bolt, clean the surfaces and replace. This simple step has cured many electircal issues on these trucks.
