I own a 2005 Chevy Malibu LS and my brake light, abs light,

Customer Question

I own a 2005 Chevy Malibu LS and my brake light, abs light, and traction light are on in dash. They have been on for 4 or 5 years, but the brakes work fine. I never had them fixed, or to find out why they were on. I do not know if they are causing my problem, or it is something else. My problem is for the past year occasionally one front wheel would partially lock on causing a drag on that one wheel. last year I replace the rotos, caliber, and brake line. It stop the problem for about 9 month. Is it possible that abs is causing my problem?

I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.So unlikely that your abs is causing it. When the light is on, it means your abs is disabled.
I want you to try something, when it starts to drag or lock up, loosen the bolts that hold the master cylinder to the booster. Loosen them about a half inch.Let me know what happens.Thanks
