    Need to pull the codes otherwise your just shooting in the dark, too many things it could be to start guessing.

    The warning lights in Chevy/GMC mean many different things for those years as @65 sporty mentioned. I forgot all those codes from when I drove S-10's for work. Had check engine light come on for a bad gas cap before.

        autozone doesn't do abs or airbag tests

        They should still be able to look up the code as they are all OBD codes.

        I would have thought the scanner their using would be new enough to show the code and explanation.

          when this truck wouldn't set the computer for inspection - auto zone s scanner would not tell them what had not set - only codes that showed - that's how it is in glorious NY

          Any decent shop will take the time to read your codes and tell you what's wrong. It's potential money for them.

          $50 will buy a scanner these days. Not a fancy one but functional.

          If you do buy one make sure it reads more than just engine codes. So many more modules ABS, Airbag, Body, I am sure you get the picture.

          The pic helped figure out the warning light on the South African Ranger.

          Just reread your post, the overall picture, not a pic! Funny. Do you just have the ABS light, or are other lights on also?

          Has it got wheel sensors. Maybe a bad seal?
