94 s-10 blazer abs
Look under the hood where the ABS unit sits.(on drivers side)
Make sure the engine is NOT Running and the key is OFF. Also check that the parking brake is Not Engaged at this time.
First unplug the two wire connector on the ABS unit. IIRC the wire colors for this connector are Red and Black, and they are of a fairly thick gauge.
The ABS/Brake light will remain on at this time if you start the motor, so skip that and look for a second connector on the ABS unit. This one has multiple wires and are much thinner gauge than the first connector. **Unplug this connector. With key OFF, pump the brake pedal 10-15 times. Start the motor and there should be no ABS or Brake lights illuminated on the dash.
You just completely eliminated the ABS Unit from your braking system and will only have NON- ABS power brakes from now on. The ABS unit will only act as an extended brake fluid reservoir and will not influence braking an any way...you will have to pump the brakes yourself if needed.
On my personal vehicle...also a '94 S10, I went one step further and fabricated an ABS pump elimination kit that allowed me to physically remove the entire unit and tie the lines back into the system using a simple valve found on many domestic master cylinders. I may fab up some kits if there is any interest, but it's really not needed...I'm just anal about my vehicles.
**NOTE: Some GM ABS units have two additional plugs besides the two wire connector, if so just unplug them both.
