Default Want to end ABS on 95 SE

Can I just pull a fuse and say good bye to ABS with no collateral troubles? I've had this car for almost a year and the ABS only kicks in on one intersection near my house.

I hate it. I'd rather lock up and slide a bit. At least I'd get some friction stoppage. The ABS sends me right out into the oncoming traffic.

I apply the brake and get light flutter on the pedal, no stopping (Other car is coming). I increase pressure to pedal, harder flutter, no stopping. Mash pedal as hard as possible, massive flutter, car begins to grip,Too late......comes to a front end bouncing stop three feet into cross lane....people in other car think I'm an A$$ because I've made this rediculous car bouncing stop. But.....I wasn't going fast, snow/ice wasn't that bad...ABS just doesn't engage brakes to my taste. I have decided over the 11.5 months that I can do better with my own braking modulation.

Pulling the fuse wasn't an option on my PMIII equiped Regal. Hope it is with this one.

Thanks, Lee

I had an ABS Module go bad in my Blazer and all I did was pull the connectors at the module to disable it. No lights either.

I think you have an ABS system issue that could be freaking out the ABS computer...

I have had the ABS Pump fail in my car... and after a Panic stop on a Highway where a guy pulled right out in front of me at while I was going 50Mph( That was the speed limit for the highway ) I had to fight like mad to stop and control the car all at the same time.... I spotted a clearing just off the road and hung the car into gravel and grass... without the ABS in all of this fighting to stop the car I tried to keep from locking up, and still flat spotted the tires..

after almost getting into what could have been a very bad accident I replaced my ABS pump.... and let me tell you, I have no issues with the ABS bringing me to a stop...

Almost sounds like half of you system has failed... Has the master cylinder ever been replaced?

sorry to bump this but I asked the repeat of this question in another post about my master cylinder and no one will answer it. The system is working fine.....I just don't like it. I would like to put a size bigger tires on the rear also.

To do this the ABS has to be non functioning.

Can I dissconnect the ABS and the brakes work normal? How?

And I won't post the question again if no one answers, promise!!

I think you can remove the ABS and ABS pump fuse and have the system dead in a manner of sorts.. But it may light up the ABS light
