Question about Chevrolet Malibu
OK, if the ABS light goes on, many times it is due to a dirty or bad wheel speed sensor. Don't worry too much, because if the ABS light is on, standard braking will work. If you don't notice any pulling to one side or the other, and you can come to a full and complete stop without skidding, it's probably ok, until you can have the ABS system repaired at your convenience.
Turning the car off will reset the ABS system on Chevrolet Cars and Light trucks. But, if the ABS light comes back on, it probably means it has lost a signal from one or more of the wheel speed sensors.
Sometimes a wheel hub assembly with an ABS sensor on it will be necessary to repair the problem on many late model vehicles.
Good luck on this repair.
