I have a 95 GMC Sierra 4x4 K1500.....today when I was driving, the ABS light
came one. I have checked the fluid, no leaks, the brakes seem to work
normally, although I dd not have a chance to see if my wheels would slide or
not. Anything else I should check? How do I reset the light if I cannot find
anything wrong? Ideas??
A good friend will come bail you out of jail...but a true friend will be
sitting next to you saying, "Damn...that was fun !! "
My mechanic told me I don't have to have ABS brakes, the normal brakes work
just fine. He suggested to put black tape over it. This is the second
vehicle I have now had with the ABS light that stays on (Astro Van, GMC
Jimmy). My brakes work just fine still. He says he could charge me to turn
off the light and fix the problem, but it would cost me quite a bit.
But it does a system check each time you turn the key.
I dont know where it is, (my service manual is in the truck, and its 20f out)
but It may be in the
under hood fuse center. Just follow the labels.
I have the same thing happening with my 1990 Blazer...had the front
brakes done over after seeing the light but it didn't go off...brakes
work ok but when i last had a tire changed I was shocked to see how bad
the rear brake drums were.....as I usually only drive it short distances
and in the woods........i an not looking to put anymore money in
it....brake place wants over 200.00 to replace the drums and rear
brakes....hoping to get by....I know but the fronts are all new.
could just be a bad sensor too....I have that dig. dash and my water
appears to be over heating too but its not.
Like my body....isn't new any more.
