1998 Chevrolet Malibu Question: ABS LIGHT STAYS ON.

HI AGAIN: CAN YOU LET ME KNOW WHAT MAY HAVE CAUSED MY ABS LIGHT TO COME ON AND WON'T GO OFF? THIS HAS HAPPENED NOW FOR 4 GOING ON 5 MONTHS. I DO NEED A RESOLUTION AND THE COST TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM. THANKS AGAIN? -
Answer 1
The cost of the repair will depend on what the fault is. When the ABS light comes on a fault codes will be set in the ABS control module. A scan tool is necessary to read the stored code. The fualt code is the best clue as to what the fault could be. The ABS system will need to be diagnosed based on the code. Once you have the diagnoses check the repairpal website for an estimate for the cost of the repair. -
