    ??? Abs Inop ???

    A couple weeks ago my "ABS INOP" light would only come on occasionally, but now it is on constantly. What does this light mean, is it bad, how do I fix it ???

    My most recent modifictaion was installing lowering springs... if that makes any difference.

    My car is a 97 trans am

    Well it it blinks you are in trouble and need to get it to a shop. If it stays on then you arent as bad off. Its most likely a reluctor ring or a sensor. On a 97 you should have 4 channel abs which has a sensor and a reluctor wheel on each wheel. I think you can get your abs ecm scanned and it should tell you whats going on

    also the sensor in the arm rest , for the parking brake will cause it as well. need to scan it and see what code its throwing, to be sure and save the cash of guessing.

    It could be one of the abs sensors on each wheel, or one thing to try. Clean up the ground right next to the power steering res. And clean the positive one's too.. That was my issuse once apone a time ago..
