ok heres the deal, i just turned on my car and the ABS and Brake warning light were on, the parking brake was all the way down, i check the ABS plugs on all the brakes-all were good, i checked the fluid-good. i checked all the hoses and wires that i could see, that had anything to do with the brake system, and all those looked fine. whats the deal? anyone ever had this happen? could it be as simple as it's time to change the brake fluid? arrrghh im so mad, i just got my car out of the shop, i don't want to put it back in.

I had a similar problem, to where it turned out to be a bad module. I had the module replaced under warranty. Didn't take long , but they had to get behind the glove compartment and made a bit of a mess inside the car. :rolleyes:

Wheel bearings could be getting bad,the ABS sensors are located on the wheel bearings.

Have a technician pull the ABS codes, that'll tell ya what you need to replace. If its a wheel sensor, you usually get the trac off light on as well (that system uses the ABS sensors do detect wheel slippage)

theres a sensor under the brake pedal that comes loose my friend works at one of the pontiac dealers here and he fixed mine it was doing the same thing he said he fixes those all the time no parts needed.

you think that wire could cause those warning lights to come on?
