What is usually wrong with my ABS system when the ABS light brake light are on and the brakes work with a hard pedal pressure?

In most cases, the brakes will function fine even if the ABS is not working (you just won't have the ABS feature). If you have to exert more pressure than normal on the brakes, you can be looking at an issue with the brake booster or some other part not necessarily associated with the ABS system. It sounds like the ABS light might be a secondary symptom of a larger problem. I would recommend taking the vehicle to a qualified shop asap.

Why does your abs kick in every time you use the brakes on my 2005 4 wheel drive extended cab silverado?

abs dont just kick in. abs are a type of brake system that are always in use when using the brakes. in other words in a non-abs system to keep from locking up the brakes you were taught to tap the brake pedal instead of applying steady pressure. in an abs system on the other hand it basically taps the pedal for you by pulsing the brakes automatically therefore you should always apply steady pressure to an abs brake equipped vehicle and let the system do all the work. it is normal to feel the pedal slightly pulsing when they are applied

The ABS brake light came on in your 96 Ford F-350 turbo diesel and it wont shift out of park does anyone know why?

Your ABS pressure switch is bad. Is your ABS light on? To find out for sure turn the key to the area where the dash lights come on then back one click, put the transmission in neutral and see if it starts. Then put it into gear. I had the same problem with my 97 ford F250 gas engine. The ABS pressure switch went bad and it would not allow me to take it out of park when I started the engine. I disconnected my switch and started it in neutral until I could get another switch for mine. The ABS pressure switch on mine is located by the brake fluid reservoir. I hope this helps

What does it mean when normal brakes ''lock up'' and how do you get them to ''unlock''?

If by "normal brakes", you mean brakes without ABS (Antilock Brake System), then what it means is that the brakes have been pressed hard enough to stop the wheel rotating, so the tires skid and make that loud skidding noise and alot of smoke. To unlock non-ABS brakes, you need to lessen the pressure on the brake pedal until the wheels start spinning again. This is called feathering the brakes. Non ABS brakes work the best when the wheel is spinning, and the brakes are applied to just before the point where the brakes lock up. This is one reason why driving a race car at the limit is such a skill, since race cars generally don't have ABS. The best race car drivers are those that can apply the brakes the hardest, i.e. just before they lock up. Having said all that, the majoirty of passenger cars on the road have ABS. This is a system that does that brake feathering for you. So for most people, "normal" brakes do have ABS. You can tell when ABS is kicking in because the brake pedal pulsates under your foot, very noticeably. ABS controlled brakes never really "lock up", since the ABS is designed to prevent that. The most important thing to do if you need to stop quickly and your ABS system kicks in is not to panic, and to keep the pressure on the brakes. Some people try to feather ABS brakes like they would old style brakes. This is very bad because the ABS system gets confused and doesn't know if you are really trying to stop wuickly or not. It is a good idea to go into an empty parking lot on a rainy day, get up to 25 mph and stomp on the brakes to see what it feels like so in an emergency, you are familiar with ABS. The final type of lock up is a mechanical failure when calipers get stuck. This typically happens if you put the prak/emergency brake on and leave the car for a long time. The brake pads/calipers can lock in place, and you won't be able to move. This requires mechnical repair, although sometimes putting the car in neutral and rocking it back and forward can help.
