What Causes the ABS and Brake Light to Come on Intermittently on a 99 Silverado?

Answer

If your ABS or anti-lock braking system light comes on intermittently it could mean that your ABS brakes are not working properly. If it is just the ABS light that comes on in the vehicle, your regular brakes should still work to stop the vehicle. However, if your other brake light comes on in addition to the ABS light, you should have your vehicle towed to a qualified auto mechanic because your brakes could fail.

ABS systems are standard features on most cars. The system is meant to warn car owners when the braking system is not functioning properly. Trying to determine why your ABS light comes on intermittently can be tricky. The first thing you should do is turn the car off and back on to see if it is simply a malfunction. If the light continues to go on and off, there may be problem with the sensors in the ABS system. The first thing you can check is the fuse for the ABS system. If the fuse is working properly, try checking the ABS controller for any signs of corrosion. Your car owner's manual will indicate where the ABS controller is located.
