1999 Alero anti lock brake light

I have a 1999 Alero and can not get the anti lock brake light to go off. When having the car inspected they say it will not pass with the light on. Please help.

    the anti lock lock came on..now the car will not move in reverse. works ok, but has a scrubbing noise when in drive, as if the brake pads need to be changed..what is causing this.....

    I had all new brakes and rotars put on my 99 alero and the light for the ABS wont go off. What do I have to do to fix that problem.

U can have the light scanned by autozone free of charge. Also in new york state the anti lock system is not part of inspection and can not be a failable issue. Ofcourse your state may be differant. Also the abs light will not turn on for brake pads.. Most common on the olds alero is a bad wheel bearing. The abs sensor is built into all the wheel bearings. The code that u can get out of the car will even tell you what wheel it is that is causing he light to come on. Unless ofcourse its not a wheel bearing and its a internal abs system issue. Let me know what the code is and I will try to get you a pinpoint place to look....

Sounds like abs unit is bad .causing the wheel to lock up too soon.

Why would my antilock & traction off light keep coming on and what should I do?


THE ABS AND TRAC LIGHT COMES ON MEANS YOU HAVE A PROBLEM. THE GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP HAS TO DO A DIAGNOSTIC SCAN ON ABS BRAKE AND ANTI LOCK SYSTEM TO SEE WHAT TROUBLE CODES COMING UP AND FIX THE PROBLEM.

Take it to Midas and have them inspect the brakes. It is probably the anti-lock system starting to flake out. See if you get the ABS light on at any time (might want to get engine codes read at AutoZone just as an extra measure of thoroughness too)

Anti-Lock and Trac Off lights are lit on my 1999 Alero, as well. They usually come on after about 5 minutes of driving, but are not always on when I start the car.
