How can we tell if the ABS pump is going bad or a potential hazard? Thanks. Phil

Dealer can use Tech I or II to retrieve ABS / chassis codes. Your ABS / Trac / Brake lights may illuminate on dash. The pump should energize after about 8mph. And if it doesn't pulsate when braking hard on slick surfaces, there's probably something wrong. But lack of ABS is only a hazard if you don't know how to modulate your brakes, which you should know regardless.

I have a 2001 oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 v6. There is a drain in the system, a very big one. Got a new battery and new alternator and connectors are good. I've had it in the shop for a little over a week now and the mechanic hasn't figured it out yet. He pulled the gen 10 amp fuse and the draw goes down a bit and there is a fuse inside the car that is draining but still no luck what it could be. I need help.

Hello there, new to the site of Oldsmobiles, and in the constant pursuit of learning new things, i hope somebody can clarify the following a bit, ben reading a lot on the subject but with work and always stuff to do around the house is tough to just sit around a computer reading, anyway, i need to change the wather pump and probably t stat on my 99 intrigue, started to leak around wp gasket, and ben reading several posts regarding this and overheating etc, also that because of how special the wather pump works as well as the special t stat is for this model's cooling system and how diferent it is to other cars, it needs OEM (original) parts instead of autozone, i ask because i had allready bought wather pump from autozone but not yet installed, i do not want to do it twice, i understand Most OEM parts are beter but also on some theres no diference except the price tag, changing w pump and t stat, bleeding etc is no problem so question is: is this models cooling system so special it will not function the same with NON OEM parts ...?? or is it Just the Thermosthat that is so special and i can go with autozone W Pump and T stat from dealer, because there is quite a diference in $$ and these are tough times, and you gota save $$ anywhere you can. Also, is thermosthat really important to put back in or is it just the same to take it out and not to put it back in, i hear some people do that, but
need to understand if this is ok to consider or will it create somekind of problem in the future and what that is....??
Thank you all for your attention and comments.

For those having problems with this yr and model, here's my story as it might help someone else experiencing the same..Bought a 99 Intrigue with 137K miles. Dude i bought it from wasn't str8 with me when i bought it from him. When I showed up to buy the car it was running already. Should've suspected something right then, but I was too trusting. Test drove it, seemed ok. Bought it, took it home. when I tried starting it next day took 3 times to start. Next day 5, next day 10, etc..took it to a mechanic, he said it was the camshaft position sensor..375.00. Still had the same prob..gave it a tune up..200.00..still the same prob..finally tried the starter..350.00 and problem is SOLVED..you might want to have the starter checked b4 all else..for this model and yr its located under the car, not under the intake manifold as I've heard in the past. Best of luck..I'm happy now, lol...
