Stop! Now!

Ask Bob: Tha Auto Answer Man


Dear Bob,
I have a 1990 Chevy Astro Van and my anti-lock brake light comes on when I am driving. It goes off when I stop. Any idea what is causing this and can it be fixed?
Edward

Edward,
Anytime there is a problem with the brakes, take the car to a certified mechanic or the dealer. If the braking system fails, it could be very serious. Now, since the light goes on when braking and off when not, I would think that the ABS pump is damaged. If it was a sensor, then the light would always be on.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
Bob, The Auto Answer Man
