    did anything every get done about the abs fualt light issue, have a 06 i got new and this has been a pain in the [non-permissible content removed] for me,

  • i have a 04 Colorado 2wd. I have recently gotten the abs issue that is on the drivers side. I have actually discovered the problem with mine. The abs tone ring is magnetically held to the rear of the bearing. The ring got loose and pushed itself off the center. Finding this after replacing bearing and sensor naturally. I am trying to resolve by super gluing ring into place. Will post again if problem resolve with instructions on repair.

  • There's two different problems. First one, the front hubs have sensors built into them and sensors go bad around 120k miles or so and need to be replaced. Witch is a.expensive part for some reason and a lil bit more work to fix then most vehicals. But alot of other vehicals need same fix. Secondly, my dash gave me a abs light and displayed abs fault. Did some research and troubleshooting. I already replaced both hubs cause I know better.if one.was.bad  just to.replace the other so I knew that wasnt the problem. Lite came off and.on at different times for no.reason. I fixed it by cleaning all my grounds. Headache/frustrating to figure out but all is good now! :-)Know what you don't know.  I got my colorado 5years ago from someone who hit head on with a tree. The front of engine was in the tree. Replaced front bumper, hood and fender and still running strong.good luck to every one. It's not that difficult as it seems.

    I have a 2004 colorado same problem. i have been dealing with it for about 2 yrs. had it checked out there is something wrong with the wheel speed sensor most likely in only 1 wheel. mine is the drivers front. something about the seal bad allowing dirt, water to set off this censor also could be a problem. hoping chevy will do a recall I have heard several complaints about this poblem. hope this helps u out

    I have 2006 Colorado replaced front brakes had rotors turned. The abs light came on.Changed censor on left front did not work.Changed wheel bearing that came with censor. No more problems. Now if abs stops working stops working .I don't know about that. Ask autozone if they can check ABS codes.

    It seems that all you hear about is resetting the computer, but still the intermittant ABS fault will return with no ryme or reason, and then if you pull over, turn the vehicle off, and start it again, the error goes away. I am tired of this error. The mechanic tells me that it is not hurting the brakes or my safety, but I have had both hubs replaced at my cost, and have had the sensors replaced twice--again at my cost. Does anyone have a new Idea or is it just reset the computer. Tired of this--- It seems that this error effects more than me, maybe GM and Chevy should look at Customer Service and suggest a recall......

    Might notneed to replace both. I think Autozone can check ABS code. I replaced left front on my 2006 Colorado censor would not work. Replace bearing that came with censor no more problems. Lot have trouble when replacing just censor.

    I have a 2005 Z71 Colorado with the same problem. My light has been on and off for a few years. I changed sensors and a front hub. The light stays off for a week or two then intermittent until it stays on steady. It's been to a dealor and a private garage and no one can figure it out. I know my
    mileage is high but i intend on keeping it. It's a good truck but GM should stand by their product and make the truck safe.

    My 2004 Z71 4x4 just out of the blue has a ABS Fault warning on the instrument panel. I was driving and lost all power...no radio, headlights, wipers. When I got it to a safe place to pull over. I turned the vehicle off, waited a minute and restarted. The error was gone. I haven't driven the truck in days...so today I went to start it and the error code happened again and headlights, radio EVeryThing Lost power again! Chevrolet should have a Recall on this issue....I googled it and found Tens of Thousands of other people who are reporting the same issue. This is definitely a Safety ISSUE and should be repaired by Chevrolet. From reading this post they have been aware of this issue for YEARS. I reply from Chevrolet is Appreciated
  • Have a 2004 GMC Canyon Z 85 with same abs issue. Have also had the brake warning light come on sometimes also. Now a new problem. Twice I have went to apply the brake and the pedal went right yo the floor with no resistance. After several pumps would suddenly firm up. Worked for a dealership and never had this happen before.If it was a master cyl. failure should not firm back up and act normal. No one seems to know what this might be. I feel it may all be related. Have not replaced the hubs, sensors and bearings yet because it does not appear to fix the problem.
  • I bought a 2006 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab  (80k miles) almost two months ago. The stock radio had eaten someone's CD so i got a Pioneer installed at Best Buy. The day it was installed, i turned on the truck and my ABS fault came one. Not only that but the blinkers on the dash turned on (solid) and my windshield wipers started on their own. That issue hadn't happened again but my radio started cutting out so Best Buy had me bring it back yesterday. They took the radio out, said it needed an update and shouldn't happen again or they'd replace it. The radio started cutting out on the way home. That night while i was driving, all of my dash lights came on (check engine, seatbelt, battery, ABS, blinkers, etc)so i started to pull over. The brakes locked up and it was very difficult to slow down and steer. Since then my lights have been wonky and the ABS fault comes on off. I've unplugged the battery, pumped the breaks in park, and unplugged and replugged all the fuses under the hood. My question is, does anyone else have this issue or did Best Buy potentially mess something up? 
  • I also have the same problem :(
