How to disable ABS Brakes on a 1995 Mazda Millinium
ABS brakes are locked down and smoke when you drive the car. I have bled the brakes and it works good for about a block before it happens again. Can I disable the ABS brake system and still drive the car?

Hi you can remove the abs relay [pump] this will bring the abs light on but knock the abs off by the way if your problem persists the systems pressurising change your master cylinder or if fitted brake pressure regulator that is fitted to offending wheels yates210456

Before bleeding brakes make sure you disable abs system. I usually remove the abs fuse for that time. With abs on you cannot bleed brakes properly. If still having problems then check new brake lines for glitches that might have happened during the install.
PS: Don't forget to put back the abs fuse after you are done! Otherwise you still have brakes but not with abs feature.
All four brakes must be bled to eliminate the trapped air...probably not anything else...try lubricating the bleeder fitting with PB Blaster before trying to open...be cautious as this valve can break off, and that means rebuild the caliper drill out broken fitting...or replace caliper...either way all 4 brakes must be bled...start with the rear farthest away from the master cylinder then other rear...then right front, then last is left front...Hope this helps.
try bleeding your ABS block first, if that doesn not work could need a master or proportioning vavle. Some scan tools are capable of bleeding the ABS system on some vehicles, and some you have to bleed manually.
if it is only the front brakes locking up then i would say master cylinder but i have also seen where one of these fast lube places accidently put power steering fluid in the master cylinder and it will make all of the rubber seals swell and lock the brakes up but usually only after the vehicle has been driven for a while and you can pull over and let it cool down and take off again.they make a kit to check and see if the brake fluid is contaminated. good luck and let me know if this helped you .....................
not really. Measn that you most likely have a wheel speed sensor bad. Most often its in the front of the truck and its replaced with the wheel bearing. Although the system is disabled while the light is on the vehicle brakes are not affected
Your ABS control module has failed. It can fail in two areas.. either the fuse controlling it which is a large fuse and located in the engine cmpartment on most vehicles or the actual ABS actuator control module which is a computer driven box located on bottom of vehicle that pumps the brakes to make them antilock (think how in the 70s you were told to pump brakes, now the car pumps its own brakes) The computer module is what burns out leaving you without ABS but not brakes themselves. Your car indicates this by showing you an ABS error light and a brake light. You are not in danger by driving the vehicle you just will NOT have antilock brakes in the event of an accident and could slide if you lock the brakes by slamming them down. Check your owners manual for the fuse location in your vehicle and inspect it. If its burned out replace it and see if this fixes the problem This is a 3-7 dollar fuse. If that doesnt do the trick unfortunately the repair is very expensive 700+ dollars for a new control unit.
Usually that indicates bad ABS sensor or ABS component in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.
