Probably a bad wheel speed sensor. The abs works by sensing the wheel speeds. When the computer does not see a signal from a wheel over a period of time, it will shut down the abs turning the light on... otherwise it would think that wheel was locked (like on ice) and try to pulse the brakes at all other three wheels causing driveability issues and an unsafe condition.

A dealers diagnostic device can isolate the wheel with the faulty signal. A smaller garage may be able to do it but if they dont have the equipment to diagnose which wheel has the error it may actually cost you more in labor in the long run. Ask if they have the equipment for such tests.

Ani brake light comes on somtimes


"ani brake light"??? Do you mean Antilock Brake light? If the antilock brake warning lamp is illuminating while driving under normal driving conditions, then you probably have a malfunction in your antilock brake system. You must scan your antilock brake control module to find out why it has been illuminating the light. Wheel speed sensor malfunctions are a common cause of the symptoms you are describing, but you cannot be sure if that is what is causing it, or which one is causing the problem without scanning the controller and performing proper diagnosis.

Car shakes when you put on brakes


When you say that you "mash" the brakes, do you mean that you are pressing ******* the brake pedal? If this is the case, you may be forcing the brakes to go into "Antilock Mode"...this is a NORMAL condition. Otherwise, it could be going into "overactive antilock mode" if you are pressing the pedal normally. This condition is usually caused by malfunctioning wheel speed sensors. You must scan your antilock control module to verify this.

My traction control lights keep coming on, and then my car says that the engine power is being decreased, and i'm on dry surface


That is your Antilock Brake/Traction Control computer going into what I call "False antilock mode" This is almost always caused by abad wheel speed sensor. Your vehicle is equipped with 4 of them. To diagnose this problem, you must drive the vehicle with a scanner hooked up that can read the wheel sensor data and find out which wheel sensor is not working properly. Sometimes (but not always) you get lucky and the Antilock Brake Control Module will set a code to tell you which one.

1997 GMC sierra 1500 5.7 liter. The antilock brakes have been activating a lot, especially when turning. I have had the wheel bearings replaced which contain the antilock sensors but the antilocks are...


clean the mounting surface of the abs sensors.rust builds up under the sensor and it sits too far away from the tone ring causing false abs modulation.

Probably broken wires on the sensors on your brakes, or dirty sensors. Very typical.
