Hello Steve

The problem is in the fuse box. The ABS Fuse needs replacing and while you are doing this make sure you check other fuses too, as the ABS fuse normally takes out other fuses but not always.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

The TCS gets it's signals from the ABS, so if the ABS detects a problem it'll automatically shut off the TCS. The ABS problem can be a bad wheel speed sensor or corrosion on the "tone" wheel. Get the trouble codes read so you'll know which wheel is causing the problem. The knocking is the ABS system working as if you're going into a skid, so the computer is getting a bad signal.

ABS light stays on - can you unsolder relay in ECM with common iron.

ABS light on did they check codes ? The light staying on an no codes is usually a insturment cluster problem not the EBCM - electronic brake control module . No relay in side the module , a transistor or diver as they call them . This transistor will supply a ground on a electrical circuit from the brake lamp driver module ,when it does this the brake lamp driver module ground a electrical circuit for the ABS light . If anything is bad causing the ABS light to stay on it would be the brake lamp driver module . Your best bet ,take it to a GM service dept.

ABS light stays on

ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been anovervoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.

If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle

Wheel speed sensors misadjusted, damaged , or metal shavings and other debree, since they are magnetic can give false readings from one of the wheel circuits. Over sized tires can give of false speed readings as well. there are many other causes including bad relay, control module, e.t.c. It is best to have the proper scan tool to diagnose an ABS problem
