Perhaps because the fault needs reset by a scanner . who ever changed the brakes should have cleared them after repairs were done .

2002 advance track and abs light on and brakes locked car wont move

Check the emergency brakes first. If set, replace the rear cables or just cut them. Next is to have the codes read for the ABS system. Bad bearing or sensor. Just a note. I have seen people drive their vehicles that the bearings lock up.

ABS and Advance track lights go on and off, but sometimes not always the front brakes feel like the are locking up (actually feels like the wheels are gonna fall off) replaced the sensor (in the back) that...

Sometimes if your rear sensors are in the brake backing plates, you will get debris from the Emergency brake pads and this will affect the sensor count. As the wheel revolution is perceived to be different from one rear wheel to the other, the Traction Control system automatically activates and applies the brakes to make the wheel revolution match on both back wheels.

The Emergency brake linings can fall off of the shoes and create this problem. The brake pads in the front can also separate from the front discs and make the ABS warning illuminate.

Best have a Brake shop remove the rear brakes as they can be a pain to get off when the Emergency brake linings grind up.

Advance tracking system turning off and abs light is on

You need to get the brakes checked. The brakes ABS warning is a fairly accurate system and it probably is made to shut off the tracking system because without brakes, the tracking system can not work properly.
The tracking system and ABS work by counting the revolutions to the wheels and balance left and right sides by using the brakes. If brake debris or bad brake pads interfere with the counting, the warning will engage.
You may be able to save the rotors with prompt action, but know that the brakes are not within specifications and are headed for a metal to metal conflict.

ABS light won't go off recently had both front wheel bearings replaced on a 1999 gmc jimmy - the ABS light came on immediately during a test run, i told the mechanic about it and i was told it would...

There are ABS wheel speed sensors on the front wheels behind the hubs. It is possible if the hub where replaced either the pick up ring mounted to the hub itself was not installed or might have purchase non abs hubs or they just did not switch the wheel speed pickup ring on the new hub. Another thing could be either the wheel speed sensors are mis adjusted or when they replaced the hubs they hung the spindle by the abs wire and either pulled it out of socket or messed up the wires internally. Here is a basic abs system if you have any other questions please let me know. Also please leave good feedback.

Abs light stays on and track stays on have an emmission test coming up

The ABS (antilock brake sytem) and the "track" are interconnected. Your ABS system has generated an error code and is not working and therefore your traction control system is disabled also. In most cases it is a failed abs speed sensor located in 2 or all 4 wheels that is creating the problem. The codes and locations can be read with a scanner. Worse case scenario is your abs booster pump has failed and would need replacing if you want the ABS function to work. You can also try disconnecting the electrical cord in the front/bottom of the ABS pump and spray the connectors with an electrical parts cleaner aerosol and reconnecting. This worked for my 2002 Impala LS, just had a bad connection from one of the sensors from all the years. Your brakes are still working just no anti-lock feature.

The Advance Trac is part of the ABS System (brakes)
