Hello.
The ABS, ( anti-lock break system ) has a sensor on each wheel that can come lose after hitting dips and speed bumps. If you are mecahanical you may be able to fix it yourself, if not, any auto shop can fix it in just a couple of minutes.

I'm not real sure about the tc, ( traction control ) system, sorry.

Why are my brakes locking up and grinding whenever i hit a bump or uneven surface while braking?


Sounds like you have a speed sensor signal dropping out. This would cause the ABS system to falsely think one of the wheels has locked up and would turn on the abs to unlock the wheel.

You can visually check the wiring harnesses to the speed sensors to see if there are any corroded connections, corroded wires or broken wires. If everything looks good than the next step would be to drive it with a scan tool and watch ABS data. You should be able to spot the speed sensors that drops out on the scan tool when the problem occurs. Than you can focus on that wheel to see what the problem is.

Have a competent mechanic scan the codes in the ABS control. A common fail point of the 2005 Equinox is the wire harness jumper for the drivers front wheel sensor. This is a foot and a half long jumper that connects the wheel sensor to the engine compartment wire harness. It is rigidly held in place by a couple of plastic stays that create a pinch flex point just beneath the lower stay where wheel turn moves the wire against this rigid point. After about 60-80k miles, the wire begins to break down in the insulator and false wheel speed readings are read as false wheel slip indications while the ABS system tries to modulate brake pressure. This modlation creates the grinding feel. After an amount of time, the ABS computer "recognizes" this as a fault and shuts ABS and traction control off since both systems use the wheel spin input, and the dash lights light.
Although this is a pretty pricey part at a dealer, a genuine Delco replacement part can be found online often at a much more reasonable price.

Abs light and tc on my 2005 chevy equinox


Hi,

The ABS & TC circuits are related.

It's possible one of your wheel speed sensors may be either contaminated (i.e. dirt or metal filings) or faulty, or a problem with your ABS pump.

Your vehicle's OBD computer will have store the appropriate fault codes, so have your codes read by Autozone or your local Chev/GM dealership. It should only take around 15 minutes to extract the codes and will immediately identify the suspected circuit.

My abs light and traction control light came on


The problem is most often caused by a defective wheel speed sensor for the ABS and traction control, there are four of them, it may be they are dirty or defective, take the wheels off the car (use safety stands) and follow the wires that go to wheel hub, at the end of the wire harness you will find the sensors, remove them (carefully, don't p[ull on the wires) and look for metal flakes attached to them, they are magnetic pickups so this metal can corrupt the signal and turn the waring light on, if they are clean then you will need the dealer to test the system for the trouble code that is present whenever the ABS/TC warning light is on, the parts are very expensive so guessing is very bad idea.

Sounds like your car doesn't like bumps!

The abs control modules on these fail regularly due to breaks in the circuit board solder joints. It could be that hitting the bump make the fault occur. There are places that will repair them, however you will need to remove it, or have it removed and send it to them to fix it, or you can replace it.

Either way, you'll need to get the problem diagnosed first., starting by reading out the faults in all the systems. The transmission, cruise control and speedometer all rely on a vehicle speed sensor signal from the abs module, so that is why so many systems are affected.
