When I press my brakes they stutter before stopping and service vehicle soon and anti lock lights go on and brakes locked up car turns off.

I have a 1999 Buick Regal LS.

There could be moisture in your braking system that makes the car shutter before stopping. If you notice that there is a shutter before stopping, while anti lock lights go on, brakes lock up and car turns off you should have the braking system flushed.

It has been snowing here lately. And it happened all of a sudden. I took it to GM dealership where I bought it and they cleaned some cables and as soon as I picked it up and drove it it locked up and died again so I took it back and we'll see what happens.

Do they smell when you brake? Maybe your brake pads are gone.

No there's no funny smell and my brakes are in good condition.

Hmmmm has anybody recently worked on the car? (you, friends, mechanic?) It sounds like somebody messed up the anti-lock brake control system.

No but I took it to GM dealership where I bought it and they cleaned some cables and as soon as I picked it up and drove it it locked up and died again. I don't know what to do.

Ok I tell you what I will do, If you type up the symptoms on here then I will print it off and take it to my Auto Tech teacher and ask for advice. Please be as specific as you can and be as descriptive as possible.

I start up my car fine but my service vehicle soon light comes on and stays on. My signal lights don't flash on my dash. I usually turn off the traction button when I don't need it unless during winter time but when I press my brakes it turns on then my car slows down, brakes steering wheel ignition all lock up and car turns off. Anti lock light also goes on and service engine soon light. My car is a 1999 Buick Regal LS. I picked it up from mechanic today and they said it's my anti lock brake system computer module. They said it's pretty much the computer to the whole car.
