Why won't the ABS light go off after replacing front rotors & pads?

Asked by Aug 24, 2014 at 01:54 PM about the 1996 Pontiac Grand Am 2 Dr SE Coupe

Question type: General

The ABS light in the dash stays on. The front rotors & pads have just been replaced & the rear brakes are good but the light in the dash still stays on.

The ABS system keeps the wheels from locking during a panic stop, it will not tell you the linings are worn on your year and model. The ABS will have a code stored, you need to get the codes before you can proceed with further diagnostic procedures.

Ditto tennisshoes answer. ABS system is not related to pad wear. It is telling you your ABS system experienced a failure and needs service. Could be a sensor or something in the valving. Best to get it checked out.

Found the problem, someone cut about two foot of wire & the plug off of the car. Went to the junk yard cut it off junker spliced into wire harness & plugged it in. Everything is fine now.
