While driving the vehicle on dry pavement at approximately 30 mph I heard a chime and the abs light illuminated on the dash board. The light went out the next time I drove the car and then returned. This light signifies that I have "lost" the benefit of abs braking on this vehicle. This condition could jeopardize the safety of the driver and occupants as braking efficiency could be dramatically reduced.

The contact owns a 2000 Buick Lesabre. The contact stated the traction control and abs light illuminated on the instrument panel.

I was driving and came to a red light. Upon pressing my brakes, it made a loud crunching/grinding noise and the car started skidding as if I was driving on ice, but there was no ice on the ground. My abs light came on. I assumed it was the brakes that needed changing. Took the car to the mechanic and put new brakes on the car. Abs light still comes on and it is not stopping correctly. I have tried resetting the battery, as suggested on the Buick website. That didn't help the situation. Light still is on, and car is not stopping correctly.
My 1996 Buick Lesabre abs warning light did not let me know that the abs were not working, resulting in an accident.
