    where are the brake sensors

  • Bill White Oct 18, 2008

    The ABS light has been on for quite awhile but the brakes work fine. What supplies power to the light? Is there a fuse that I could pull until after the car passes state inspection?

ABS & brake Wobble in Cherokee front end


I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)

How do I determine if an ABS sensor is bad on a 1995 chevy corsica


ABS sensor has nothing to do with the restriction of the brake oil supply. It merely tells the ECU whether the wheel is spinning or stopped at all when the car is moving.
Check:
- Pull up the ABS diagnostic error codes.
- Brake hose attached to the caliper for swollen or clogged.
- Check brake pipe from the skid control ECU to front wheel.
- Check the caliper assembly.

How do i remove the brake caliper on a 1994 f350 4x4 there are no bolts attaching it


If this is a Pin Slider, here is 1996 steps:

Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1996 F-150, F-250, F-350 4x2, 4x4, Bronco and F-Super Duty Vehicles Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Caliper
Heavy-Duty Rail Slider, F-Super Duty
Replace brake shoe and lining (2001) as follows when the lining is worn to a minimum thickness of 0.794mm (1/32 inch) above the front disc brake rotor shield. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel (1007).
Removal
  1. To avoid fluid overflow when the caliper pistons are pressed into the caliper cylinder bores, siphon or dip part of the brake fluid out of the brake master cylinder reservoir (2K478). Discard the removed fluid.
  1. Raise the vehicle and install safety stands. Remove the front wheel and tire assembly.
  1. Place an appropriate size C-clamp on the disc brake caliper with end of clamp against caliper and end of screw against outer shoe. Tighten the clamp to bottom the caliper pistons in the cylinder bores. Remove the clamp. Do not use a screwdriver or similar tool to pry caliper pistons (2196) away from the front disc brake rotor (1125).




  1. Clean excess dirt from area around pin tabs.
  1. Tap upper caliper pin toward inboard side until pin tabs touch the front wheel spindle.
  1. Using Hydraulic Caliper Pin Remover D89T-2196-A or equivalent and a light hammer, drive the pin from the disc brake caliper as follows:
    1. Position the notched end of the tool against the caliper pin (retention tab half), at a 45-degree angle from the pin retention tabs.



    1. Tap the tool with the hammer to compress the retention tabs.



    1. As the retention tabs are compressed, move the tool to gain a straight approach to the caliper pin, and continue tapping to drive the caliper pin through the caliper/spindle groove.
  1. Repeat removal procedure for lower caliper pin.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not let the disc brake caliper hang by the front brake hose (2078). The front brake hose could become stretched or twisted which can cause the front brake hose to leak and rupture, resulting in failure.
    Remove the disc brake caliper from the front disc brake rotor. If the disc brake caliper is to be removed for service, remove the front brake hose from the disc brake caliper. Plug the end of the front brake hose to prevent fluid loss and entry of air into the system. If the disc brake caliper is not to be removed, wire it up to the frame of the vehicle to avoid damage to the front brake hose.
Installation
stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel.
  1. NOTE: There is a raised section at one end of each shoe so installation can be made in one direction only.

    Install new inner and outer lining.
  1. Lubricate the knuckle upper and lower inner pad grooves and caliper grooves with Disc Brake Caliper Slide Grease, Silicone Dielectric Compound D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A. Install the disc brake caliper on a front wheel spindle, making sure the mounting surfaces are free of dirt.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not allow the tabs of the caliper pin to be tapped too far into the spindle groove. If this happens it will be necessary to tap the other end of the caliper pin until the tabs snap into place. The tabs on each end of the caliper pin must be free to catch on the spindle flanks.
    Position caliper pin with the pin retention tabs oriented adjacent to the spindle groove.
  1. Tap the caliper pin on the outboard end with a hammer. Continue tapping the caliper pin inward until the retention tabs on the sides of the caliper pin contact the spindle face. Repeat procedure for the lower caliper pin.

YEP BAD WHEEL BEARING WILL MAKE A ROARING LIKE NOISE WHILE IN MOTION.BAD WHEEL COULD PUT DRAG ON WHEEL WHICH CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON.YOUR WHEEL BEARING HAS THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR BUILT INTO IT.SO IF WHEEL BEARING BAD THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR PART OF ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON IF WHEEL BEARING BAD.MAKE SURE FRONT BRAKE PADS INSTALLED CORRECTLY IF NOT. YOU WILL GET TERRIBLE WHEEL NOISE ALSO.

Awd disable and anti lock light is on and a grinding noise in the front end


Hi, I can help

You have a bad wheel bearing assembly.
The bearing is starting to seize up, and it is telling computer there is a problem in ABS system, as well as AWD system.

First thing is to locate which bearing it is in the front end of the vehicle.

1)Jack up each side of the front end, place a safety support stand or jack stand under frame of vehicle.
2)Once vehicle wheel is free from ground spin the wheel and listen for grinding.
3)Compare each wheel as you spin and make your best judgment on which is more noisy.
4)This is your problem wheel you need to remember which side of the vehicle is the source of problem when ordering the part from your local auto parts store.

To repair: Remove wheel, remove brake caliper, then brake caliper bracket, then the rotor, remove center axle nut, then remove bolts for wheel bearing hub assembly.
Your ABS and AWD lights will reset themselves upon successful test drive following repair.
Let me know if you need more assistance or pictures.
Good Luck, have a great day.

remove the wheel. remove the brake caliper and brake rotor. if the car has abs, unplug the connector and undo the clip from the knuckle. remove the axle nut. tap on the end of the axle with a soft faced hammer until it begins to move back, being careful not to damage the threads on the axle. remove the 3 bolts on the backside of the hub that hold it onto the knuckle. use a hammer with a chisel, or an air hammer if available to free the hub assembly from the knuckle. reverse for install. dont forget to torque the axle nut to spec.

92 dodge van rear ABS-brake and ABS lights on/can't reset?


Its probably how your bleeding your brakes, but first make sure the bleeding nipples are facing upward. You should bleed diagonaly, front pass wheel then rear driver wheel. Then front driver wheel and rear pass wheel. The abs light has its own computer your have to get it scanned to clear the codes and turn off the light

1994 Cavalier -replaced master cylinder-no pressure to rear brake


The most common bleeding procedure is to bleed the ABS brake furthest from the master cylinder first, then bleed the other brake that shares the same hydraulic circuit (which may be the other rear brake on a rear-wheel drive car, or the opposite front brake on a front-wheel drive car or minivan). After these have been bled, you then bleed the other brake circuit starting with the furthest brake from the master cylinder.
Air can be very difficult to remove from an ABS modulator assembly because of all the nooks and crannies inside the unit. The modulator may have eight to 10, or more, ABS/traction control solenoid valves, plus various check valves and dead-end ports. Some ABS modulators have special bleed screws to help you vent the trapped air when bleeding the system. Others do not and require the use of a scan tool to cycle the ABS solenoids while you bleed the system. 1. To bleed the isolation valves in the modulator, there are two bleeder screws. Start with the one toward the engine. Turn the ignition on and apply light pressure on the brake pedal. Open the bleeder screw and allow the fluid to flow until clear. Close the screw and do the same at the second bleeder screw. 2. Depressurize the accumulator by pumping the pedal 40 times with the key off. Wait about two minutes for the brake fluid to de-aerate, then refill the fluid reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. 3. Now you can bleed the boost section. This is done by applying moderate pressure on the brake pedal and turning the ignition on for three seconds, then off. Repeat this a total of 10 times. Make sure the pedal feels firm when you have finished, and give the car a road test to make sure the brakes are working properly.
