Hey Stacy==When there is a malfunction in the ABS there is a trouble code set in the ebcm just like the check engine light. Generally it takes a tech 11 scanner to read the codes and about the only people who have them are the dealers. They need to read the codes and correct what is wrong. Generally when the light is on there are no anti-loc brakes just regular. GoodluckJoeAnswerNot sure if I'm too late,I had the same problem after a brake job, turned out to be a "slightly" disconnected connector at the sensor on the rear brake assembly. New Answeryou wont need a scanner to retrieve the trouble codes, I can tell you how to do it by pressing a few buttons. From there, a quick search on the internet will tell you what the codes stand for. Let me know if you want to retrieve your trouble codes.

Cheap metallic brake pads always squeal. It is recommended to turn the rotors and lube the slide pins. Is it four wheel disc? Make sure the noise is coming from the axle that the brakes were replaced. Do this; replace pads with ceramic brake pads, resurface or replace rotors, and lube all metal moving parts.
Brake rotors wear just as brake pads do and when they wear down beyond minimum specs they become unsafe. Good brakes are a # 1 priority.
The most likely problem is warped rotors. Have rotors turned or replaced. Replace front brake pads.
If the rotors have over heated you will get brake chatter. The pedal will shake when you apply the brakes. Usually the drums are a little tougher. The new rotors are very thin.
