ABS light on Chevy Equinox

ABS light on Chevy Equinox

The ABS light can come on and result in no trouble codes, leaving you with no diagnostic path. Before you start replacing parts, know that the ABS module can sometimes latch up. To reset the module, disconnect the battery cables and touch them together for 30 seconds. Then reconnect them and start the vehicle and drive it. If the light returns, attach a scan tool and check the VIN number on the scan tool. If the body control module doesn’t send the VIN number out to the data bus correctly, it can set an ABS code. If that’s the problem, have the BCM reflashed.
