    Something stuck in my brakes?

    Just dusted off the bird getting ready for the shootout. It's been sitting for several months. Anti-lock and Brake lights are both on, pedal is hard as a rock. Can I unstick something?

    Try replacing the ABS relay - but don't allow the pump to run very long or risk burn out.

    Relay should be over by the EEC test connector - I think the brown one (out of two or three, depending on).

    Looking for a part at Rockauto. Would that be the same as the control module? No relay is listed.

    It's not a module, just a typical relay.

    It probably is the relay. Also check the motor fuse. If it's blown, then probably the pump motor has a problem.
    God bless!!!

    If the pump runs its the accumulator ball if not it probably has a bad pressure switch or pump motor
