Questions and Answers

Chevy S-10 Blazer ABS Light On

Q. Vince, I have a 1993 Chevy S-10 Tahoe Blazer 4.3 liter V-6 Vortec engine automatic 4 door, ABS I have about 15,000 miles on a rebuilt engine. I have a question about my brakes. The ABS light is constantly on and whenever I get over 50 mph the brake pedal won't go down. I have to kick it several times and coast to a stop to make the pedal go down.

Chevy S-10 Blazer ABS Light On

But the brakes work fine when going under 50 mph. I called the Chevy dealer and they said I had to get a new ABS system or just disconnect it and have regular brakes. What do you think the problem is? Would just disconnecting it be okay? And should I do that? Please help!!

Thanks,
Chip

A. I can't, for the life of me, figure what going over 50 mph has to do with your problem! Did the dealer explain what was failing? Are there any recalls on it? That ABS EBCM is expensive, that's for sure. Are there any codes stored??
