IF THEY BOTH CAME ON AT ONCE ITS MOST LIKELY ONE OF THE WHEEL SPEED SENSORS YOU WILL NEED A SCANNER THAT CAN READ LIVE DATA TO SEE IF ALL THE WHEELS TURN AT THE SAME SPEED .A SCANNER WILL ALSO GET YOU ANY ABS CODES IN THE COMPUTER.

Suddenly, No tail lights, brake lights, turns signal or back up lights At 83000 miles, 6 months ago, replaced head gaskets. 1 week later, service engine soon light came on. Tech said it was an oxygen...


just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

CHECK TURN SIGNAL FUSE.IT COULD BE BLOWED OR YOU HAVE FAULTY TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.BECAUSE BACK LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS SHARE SAME CIRCUIT WITH TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.

2 weeks after I had brake pads replaced ABS and TC light came on and it was found that a sensor connection was loose. Drove fine for 2 weeks and light came on again. Serviced aging and a new sensor placed....


Good chance that the ABS sensor need to be adjusted to the speed ring on the hub. it's a common thing that happens when the brakes has been service and the technician did not measure the gap between the sensor and speed ring on the hub. Clean the speed ring on the hubs and measure the gap the the ABS sensor to the speed ring and double check the wire harness. inspect for any damages like corrosion. The gap should be 0.005 to 0.050 inch (0.127mm to 1.270mm), use a brass feeler gauge so it wont stick to the magnetic abs sensor. Good luck and hope this helps.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

Anti-lock light comes on.


I had the same problem on my 2000 Blazer usually when I made a slow turn. I had the ABS system disconnected, you don't need it here in NY, problem solved. You won't notice any braking change except on snow and ice you'll get normal braking not the ABS back and forth. It took just a few minutes and the mechanic didn't charge me. The light will stay on but it still passes inspection. Hope this helps.
