Chevrolet Tahoe ABS Warning Light On and/or Erratic ABS Operation

(61 reports)

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.

Erratic brake pedal with grinding and pulsating. Can act like it won't stop. Metal-on-metal grinding sound. -
abs coming on for no reason at 1 to 3 mph when braking -
The brakes were worked on but this problem still persists. ABS light on, sometimes steady, and you can hear them activating when first starting out. One time they seemed to 'lock'. -
ABS activates for no reason. Mostly around turns. Will activate either with, or without the brake being applied. -
Abs and brake warning lights come and go with no actual braking failure. Come on and off randomly. Wheel speed sensor replaced. -
The ABS front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate or the ABS system may activate erratically -
All four brakes locking down while driving. Engine in overdrive to account for the increase in resistance. Stopped at red light and smoke engulfed the area around my Tahoe. One of the codes on the computer says transmission is slipping. The vehicle is in the shop now... We shall see! -
There has been a recall for this (specific brands are listed). I just started having this problem and my tahoe is completely out of commission now until I can take it in to see if it was part of the recall. Fingers crossed. -
I talked to the Bosch engineer who designed the anti-lock brake system. He told me that one of the sensors at one of the wheels was defective - probably the LR. He said that was a comon problem. -
Around 5k miles ago the abs light came on. Now I know the cause -
ABS failure and brake light along with alarm go off every time you start the vehicle -
sometimes when i brake it feels like it stalls and isn't going to stop and that went on for almost a month and it only happened a few times so i thought nothing of it then my ABS light came on and i read up on it and became concerned that I've been driving like this with two kids in the car. I called my local dealer and my vin number doesn't have a recall on it so it has to come out of pocket which can be pricey. -
erratic abs activation, particularly at slow speeds. Affects ability to come to a complete stop. -
Been trying to fix the problem, no luck. Replaced rear wheel cylinders, abs brain, hub and bearing assemblies on front, abs sensors 3 separate times, bleed system. Don't have a dump valve cycling programmer. The abs kicks in at 1 t0 3 mph and pedal goes down and a grinding noise with pulsating coming from front brakes. -
ABS/Brakes lights come on at random times after driving. -
Had all brake pads, rotors/drums replaced also after rear brakes were done the power brake booster went out do replaced it then ABS light comes on a few times a day and it feels like the front brakes are grabbing sporadically especially when on the freeway and at higher rates of speed and especially bad when its raining. It pulls me all over the road and loses power and slows down I can feel massive resistance like something is causing the wheels not to want to turn they are catching so its gotta be the abs!! Im going home to pull the fuse and see if we can get her to not be a death trap I have a new 4 month baby and theres no way hes gonna be in the Tahoe right now!! -
ABS light comes on and brakes act up. -
Abs light comes on for no reason was told it was a bad solder -
the abs light come on and off -
The ABS and TC lights came on. Had it checked out and was told the speed sensor in the hub assembly was bad. They said it would not affect my regular brakes, but I had no ABS. Approx 1 week later, it started making a lot of noise with metal on metal sounds, clanking, and clunking. Had to have it towed to the shop, and they said I am lucky the wheel did not fall off!! It is not part of the aftermarket recall, but it should be recalled. This could have been a fatality accident! -
