That annoying ABS light

Why would the ABS light on a newish Impala come on after the car has been sitting practically unused for five months? It hasn't seen real road driving in that time, but recently has been driven around the
driveway to move it around to make space for other cars.
I guess any links to ABS light diagnosis resources would be most helpful.

Unfortunately, some cars break if you don't use them too. Have the ABS codes checked, without knowing the code, no one can tell you anything. ;) Well, the people who know can't tell you anything, you'll get a lot of "replace this" and "replace that", but don't fall for it.

Get it scanned for the codes.
Some possible reasons. Mouse decided the wires to a sensor looked tasty. Sitting that long rust could have formed on a sensor. Mouse chewed the wiring to the ABS module.

Start the car. crawl under it and wiggle the plug where it enters the hub on all wheels and have somebody looking at the dash at the same time. If that doesn't cure it then pull the plugs and clean contacts and try. Good luck. On Fri, 24 Nov 2006 06:30:32 GMT, Jody Lee Bruchon

Doing that even if the problem is found, the lite will not reset until the ebcm can test the system after driving about 15mph.

See my first post Shep. People want this guy to do a bunch of things, wasting time, when a quick trip to a local mechanic/AutoZone could tell him EXACTLY where to start looking.
Read codes, reset, test drive, read codes, diagnose, repair. Piece of cake.
