#38 of 47 The Pedal will not go down
Jul 15, 2010 (8:58 am)
The vibration or rattle noise is the ABS unit and on this truck if it is working properly you should not feel it or hear it.
The other problem where the pedal is hard to push down is the Master Cylinder.
I do not remember if both the ABS and Master are the same unit but if you have not solved this problem Get It Done ASAP.
Soon you will find that the pedal will go from hard to push to going right to the floor which means no brakes..........................
#39 of 47 1994 gmc sonoma bake problem
Jun 21, 2011 (4:13 pm)
I am new to forum but need some help. I am working on a 94 sonoma that has been setting for about 3 yrs. When you push the brake pedal it goes to to its normal stopping point then slowly goes to the floor. I bled the brakes, put on a new master cylinder with no change. There are no leaks and no loss of fluid. If anybody has any suggestions I would appreciate the help.

i have the same problem as some above mentioned only it grinds and pushes pedal back at me when i come to stop only, which results in a little roll instead of stopping but does stop. i can slow down with no problems unless im jamming the breaks to come to a sudden stop. i have changed the front brake pads and also checked the rear drums, all is good, only thing i can think of is ABS going out, im going to try to pull the fuse and see if the problem persists. Any other advice is always welcome.

Check recalls... there have been two recalls on ABS system... one they replaced computer and one was a hose clamp.
my 1994 S10 has had the entire system replaced back to the wheel cylinders and my mechanic won't warrantee the work after the 3rd time my brakes went out. good luck!

air in the line somewhere. bleed your brakes and it should go away. if it doesn't then take a real close look at your brake lines. look for any signs of swelling or leaks.

wrong post, sorry. easiest way i found was get a piece of wood just long enough to hold the brake pedal down after you pump it. they do however make hand held devices that claim to do the bleeding system all from the caliper. i have never personally used them however so i couldn't tell you how good/bad they are.

im having a problem when i start to break...the first 15-20 mins of driving when i start to slow down it feels like its "jumpy" the steering wheel starts to shake i dont have trouble stopping but this was a concern to me after driving for a while it doesnt do it..i noticed i had y ac or heat on and when i turned it off it helped...another problem im having is that my enginge feels "heavy kinda" like when im stopped it wont even roll back on a hill like it usually does and it stops if im trying to move forward a little bit..if this doesnt make a whole lot of sense i can try and explain it better

Sounds like dragging brakes, better get it checked before you burn them up.
#46 of 47 Chevy S-10 ABS sensor location(s)
Apr 30, 2012 (1:34 pm)
I have a friend who has a '99 S-10 2.2 engine 2WD / auto trans. He says his ABS light is always on now and wonders if it might be a sensor issue. Where would this/these sensors be located? He told me in church Sunday that he knows the ABS unit is working as he had to make a hard stop as someone cut him off the other day and he felt the brake pedal pulse as it does when the unit is working correctly. Any help you can give us on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
