Default ABS- stumped

1990 sse. Brakes were working fine but I had a leaking wheel cylander so I (stupidly) thought i'd replace all rear cylanders and brake lines. I used a pump to bleed all the lines but I still don't have any pressure in my pedal. I have to stand on it just so I wont hit the garage when moving it. I mean I don't have any brakes! ABS light on and I have vacuum. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you bleed all the brakes or just the rear? Sounds like you still have air in the system. It surprising how little air it takes to make them squishy!

O.k. shop says it'* the pump and motor assembley. Does any one know what vehicles cross over since I can't find an SSE in the junk yard? I heard some Cadillacs do, if not do you know where to get one>

GUS;

Try RockAuto and see if you can find what you need through them RockAuto Parts Catalog. They have great prices and the Forum has a discount code https://www.gmforum.com/t279335/

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

Question ABS Mod

I want to get rid of the system and replace it with a standard braking system on my 1990 sse. Does anyone know where to get a detailed procedure on how to do this? As of now, I can only find some conflicting bits and pieces on this procedure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Default ABS Assembly

I found a whole unit at a junkyard and it fixed my problem. I paid $200.00 for it and they had 1 more. Let me know if you want me to give the info.
