I'd take it back. The ABS and traction control systems work together and are tied into each other. One panic stop shouldn't upset the apple cart. When the computer detects a problem in the ABS both systems are disabled until it's fixed. HTH. -Jim

Yes it is. Do both sides of the axel and investigate why one side is almost metal to metal and fix that to

the one side is almost metal to metal because with the problem i was having with my ABS it was reading that 3 out of 4 breaks werent working cuz the master cylinder was bad so the one break that needs to be changed was the only one that was working. the light dont come on all the time just once in awhile. i dont break hard so i dont know what the hell is going on. this is why i dont like chevys.

Sounds like you have one front caliper that's not working and your rear shoes are out of adjustment. HTH. - Jim

If you're going to do the work yourself and want to save money Google Advanced Auto Parts coupons and order the parts you need on line. You can pay wit a C.C. ,PayPal, or a debit card. When I was in the USA I saved up 40 pepercent.
