Asked by May 04, 2019 at 02:00 PM about the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So a few days ago my ABS light came on as I
started my car. Then as I went to drive I
would hit my brakes and It feels like
something is hitting my brake petal, then
after a few seconds of that my stabiltrak light
comes on and then my brakes go back to
normal.

Most likely has to do with either needing new brakes, or an ABS harness. If the ABS is not working properly the brake pedal will "kick back" at you, similar to what happens when you slam on the brakes in the snow. The harness runs from the back of the wheel bearing. If you can pull of the front wheels and look behind the brakes. You should see wires running out from the back towards the front of the car leading up to the motor. Check these wires from breaks. GM has a poor design for these harnesses and they rub on the lower control arm. Not terribly expensive to fix on your own, simply clip the wires and use butt connectors to attach the new harness, plenty of YouTube vids to help, also check your brakes while your at it.
