I have a 1999 Chevy venture van, and here lately the abs light has
been coming on. I have dealt with this before in the past on my 1994
Chrysler Town and Country. I know from experience that half the time
this doesn't mean shit. Noone can ever find a problem no matter how
many mechanics you take it to.
On my Tand C van, I forget how but you could reset the abs system,
and/or get error codes by turning the ignition key a certain amount of
times. Can this be done on the venture? Is there a way to reset the
abs system and clear any error codes that may be causing it?
I would also like to ask if someone could actually explain the abs
system, and how it works. Is it used constantly during normal braking?
I was told that if the light is on you just dont have abs brakes, but
still have normal brakes which I assume is true since my van is
stopping. So, what problems should I be noticing when the light is on
because I notice nothing.
What would I have to do with the ABS light on (meaning it is not
functioning properly) for me to actually see/feel/hear to actually
realize that ahhhhh, now I see that my abs is not wroking. Would is
involve slamming on the brakes or what?
