I have a 1993 Z with the ABS INOP light flashing intermittently. I have had a mechanic look at what was causing the ABS INOP light to flash, he told me that it was only a code that appears when the light is on and is cleared when the car is turned off. I am unable to get to the shop as it is open during the time that I am at work. Anyone have any insight as to what needs to be done? This is not something that is always on, sometimes it is not on at all for a drive and sometimes it is on for the majority of the trip. My brakes work fine and does not seem to affect the performance. Thank you in advance.

Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: Abob visited me in a dream and told me about it.
I had that before for a short time - I pulled the ABS fuse for a few minutes with the ignition off and reinserted it. Haven't had a problem since but I guess I could have been lucky.

Could be one of your speed sensors on the wheel is on it's way out or the ABS control unit under the hood.

hmm..that is interesting.
I have had some problems with my ABS lights, but I have never had them flash. I read in the owners manual that if they start to flash 'to pull the car over and have it towed to the nearest dealership and to not drive it at all'
Did you bring it to the dealer or to an independent mechanic?
I would just pony up the extra cash and bring it to a dealer, they have all the fancy dancy GM scanners and stuff that can read codes that most mechanics scanners wont pick up.
I had a problem with my engine light being on throwing a code, I tried to fix everything, gave up and brought it to the dealer. It turns out that it was my pcm (computer) that was just throwing the code for no reason and there was nothing wrong with my car at all.
You can always ask the dealership for a courtesy car, or drop off the car the first thing in the morning and they should have a shuttle that will at least bring you to work (you might need someone to pick you up) but I think it is worth the extra money and hassle. Especially when you are dealing with something that I think it the most important thing on your car, and thats your brakes!

Oh and P.S. If your speed sensors are on their way out (I've had a lot of experience with this) your ABS light will not flash, it will come on solid along with your ASR light (if you have ASR)

If the speed sensors are damaged and stop working, it doesnt affect the performance of the car. It just means that your ABS no longer works. So just be weary of that when you are driving!
