how much should this cost to replace/fix?
and does this have to be done at a shop?

For right now braking is fine other than the light drives me crazy....

To tell the truth the few times I have needed the ABS the shuddering freeked me out more than the situation I was in.

Truck is a 1995 GMC yukon 4x4 automatic

Thanks

Do a code scan it will point out what is fucked ,most likly it is a wheel sensor ,the scanner will tell ya which one,it may even be a buggered wire. Most of the time they are an easy fix.Fairly cheap too.

piece of black electrical tape.....


... over the light :D

Ditto on the freaky ABS. My Mom's S-Blazer feels like its going apeshit when the ABS comes on. [16] Can't stand that sh!t.

I much prefer the sound of the 4-tire slide to let the dude in the rice-rocket know you almost pancaked him. [cheers]

Usually if you unplug the HCU, the connector has a "shorting bar" which will ground out or short power to the bulb and it should come on. At least with the imports that's the experience I've seen.

You are talking about Chevy's, right? Try it on a 2000' + Subaru and see what happens!

Subies don't have traction control, unless you have the 6 cylinder with VDC. It's ABS only on all the rest.

on the fords the rear axle abs sensor always gets messed up, just unscrew it and clean it. put it back in.(rear axle) not sure if its the same for chevy. worth a try.
cheers

There's no rear axle sensor on a Chevy fullsize (00-older anyhow). Rear wheel speed is determined by the VSS on the t-case.
