First check your ABS fuse for being blown, or pulled out even. This is the cause of the problem more than half the time...

I have a 2002 silverado and the abs and brake light stay on, any ideas?

You could have two separate issues or just one. First check the level of brake fluid. (brake light)Fill it and if the light goes out, then you have to use a CReader or scanner to get the ABS codes. Cold be wheel sensors, broken wire, or the ABS module. If you can't get the brake light to go out, then it is the ABS, three possible causes. One is the ABS module is dead. second is the pump has failed. third is a bad ground wire. check the ground first. The ground is the biggest wire going from the pump /module to the body. When these loose ground, I cut the end off and run a longer wire to a better spot on the body. When you see it, you will know why.

Well, it could mean that the emergency brake has not been fully released.The ABS system light is on if something has occurred within the ABS system. Something faulty may have happened there, get it checked out!

I have 2004 dodge diesel 2500 and when i turn my wheel left my abs light comes on and brake light comes on my brake pedal goes to the floor and i have no brakes and when i turn the wheel back the abs and...

Its the wheel speed sensor, or the wires are damaged. Turn the wheels to the left and then go look at the harness. is it streched out? (as in not enough slack) Is it touching or rubbing something. Has it come loose from its clips? Look at the face of the sensor. A few scratches are okay but, if it looks hammered, its probably damaged and should be replaced. If the hub bearing was bad enough to allow contact damage to the WSS you would have much bigger problems.

Abs and hand brake light stays on

wheel speed sensor data may not be getting to t e abs control module.
The hand brake light may stay on if the hand brake is not fully retracted or the cable is loose.

Check brake fluid level to make sure you have enough in the master cylinder.

A possible explanation is a bad speed sensor at one or more wheels. These sensors are needed for proper operation of the ABS. Another answer would be brakes were improperly bled or a fulfunctioning ABS pump. If you had these done with a professional and the light was not on prior return to the place of repair for an explanation further diagnostic will be needed. If a speed sensor was left un-installed you may be able to see a loose wire behind the wheel that seems to need a home.
