Sounds like it is possible the some one added the wrong type of fluid to the master cylinder. Check the rubber gasket on the master cyl if it is swollen you have a problem.. If it is soft and swollen, then the rubber cups in the master cyl are also swollen and will need to be replaced

SOURCE: chevy starter ignition

This isn't a solution but it should help. Pull the column off and see what color the wires are that go to the ignition switch. Next look under the dash and find the connector that has these wires. Start the truck, reach under the dash and pull the connector apart and see if it dies. If it doesn't then consider the ECM relay is sticking. If it dies when you pull the connector apart, then your ignition switch could be back and is shorting the constant hot to the ignition out allowing the truck to keep running. You can also try pulling the ECM relay when its running and see if it dies. If it does then switch it with another relay, like the headlights if they use the same style relay and turn the headlights on then off and see if they stay on, alone with starting the truck and running it for a period of time then shutting it off and see if it dies or not. Post a comment and let me know if either of these has an effect.

How do you rewhy is my brakes locking down while driving?how do i rest the abs system?


You have water in the brake system, it boils and applies the brakes.
Different size tires will set a trouble code, but not apply brakes.

I have a 2005 Equinox. The abs and tc light are on. Also there is an occaisional sound and vibration when I press on the brakes going at a slow rate of speed. The local Chevy dealer test drove the...


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.

Anti-Locks Growling


There was a recall on the ABS system on your truck. The problem was the ABS sensor on the front wheels were getting dirty and corroded causing a faults signal to the ABS module. The fix was to inspect the ABS sensor and clean them with brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. The ABS sensor and speed ring is on the inside of the front wheel hub, spry brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring with paper folded 5 times. I feeler gauge will work but put a paper between the sensor and gauge cause the sensor is magnetic and the gauge will stick. Look for damages to the lead wire to the abs, but i think that's all fine since you did not mentioned any abs light on. You may be even lucky with just a good spray of the brake parts cleaner. Good luck and keep me posted.

Sound's like the ABS common problem. Chevy has a recall that say's to remove and clean the front speed sensors mateing surface of rust. I would try that before I started spending money. If you can do you own front brakes you can handle this. Good luck

I'd be checking the sensor (ABS) at that wheel, (right front) and adjusting rear brakes to proper clearance, as well as inspect them for proper operation with wheels off.

Something is locking in when cold out


ABS modules tend to have problems on vehicles.

Do a search for ABS module repair for a place in Russia, IA who rebuilds them. They have a troubleshooting page that you can use to help you figure out the problem, and they also repair modules to include a 5 year warranty.

1995 LeSabre ABS light


the anti-lock brake system is part and parcel of the traction control system. the abs has a $750.00 valve located in the engine bay on the right side (as you face the car from the front) the driver's side just behind the headlight. i had a mechanic who took it upon himself to remove, dismantle and clean and reassemble the unit, all to no avail but also without expense. the cost of the part was prohibitive since Blue Book on this car is just about $700.00. it will run and brake just fine without the abs or the traction control system either.
