Chevrolet S10 ABS Light Due to Brake System Control Unit Failure

(108 reports)

The Anti-lock brake system (ABS) control unit may fail internally causing the ABS warning light to illuminate.

Abs light and brake light stay on -
ABS and Brake light come on at intermittent times after I start driving my 2001, 2WD S10. Dealer charged me $50 to check and said a relay in the ABS system was bad. They wanted $1300 to fix it. This problem started around 2004. About six months ago I came across this problem on something I read, and found out it is a COMMON problem with this brake system. Still no recalls. Worst, if you pay the $1300 for the same relay, how long is it going to last? -
The ABS light comes on and the abs kick in even when I don't need it making it hard to stop quickly at low speeds. -
abs warning light on -
ABS system started to come on when easily braking. Then, it finally stopped and the ABS light came on. ABS system no longer works. -
The ABS system engages at low speed when normal brake pressure is applied. The brakes are then rendered useless. -
Turned out that the problem was a shorting ABS sensor in the right front wheel hub. Designed so that you cannot replace just the sensor. I had to replace the entire wheel hub. Problem is fixable, but you should redo the brakes at the same time. -
abs light on - can't find anyone who can read code - not yet repaired -
Abs brake control module went out at 138,467. -

ABS light on and a hard brake pedal! -
I do not recall the details, -
Yes, I have only 28,000 miles on the truck since I use it only as a truck to haul things with and not a car. The ABS and Brake Warning light came on after starting the engine after an 800 feet drive and stopping. Have not determined if the ABS is working yet or if it is going to engage when it shouldn't. [Update] Started truck yesterday with no Brake Warning or ABS light. Tried brakes yesterday and again today, all stayed clear. Also tried out the ABS on a gravel driveway and they worked as they should. -
Anti lock braking system went out,top and bottom (pump). -
