1998 chevrolet c1500 4wd p/u antilock brakes

My antilock brake light comes on usually when I'm first taking off . my truck won't shift out of 2nd gear (auto trans.) how do I trouble shoot ? I've changed one hub assembly that was noisey already that was noisey. now I can hear a little noise coming from the other hub should I change it also? does the computer store any codes that will tell me exactly what the problem is?

SOURCE: REAR BRAKE DRUM WON,T COME OFF

Make sure the wheel turns and adjuster backed off . If you can see a Countersunk screw in the face of the hub remove it.  If hitting it fails , usually you can see two small 8,10 or 12 mm holes in the face of the hub . Find the correct bolts and screw them into the the hub , it should force the the drum to pop off . What car is it , and does it have tapered wheel bearings on the outside of the drum?

SOURCE: How much freon to put in the 1990 chevrolet c1500?

As long as you are using gauges, just make sure that the high side pressure is not out of the ballpark high... check cabin temp frequently and depending on ambient temp keep that reasonable as well (134 is not quite as efficient as r12 so don';t look for polar temps...you will blow it up before you ever get there.) 210-230 is average high side pressure, if I remember correctly. I've charged hundreds of units and except for very few, I couldn't tell you how much freon was used (unless using a charge station) Just following what I mentioned, I only had a problem with one (had a blocked condenser from the factory...so rare i actually remember it) Stay on the conservative side and you will be fine.

Stuck in park while truck is still running 1998 Lincoln Navigator


Are your brake lights working?
If not, replace the fuse. Still not working? Replace the brake light switch. (Your brake light switch also releases the lock for the gear shift).
If your brake lights are working, are you hearing a soft "click" at the gear shift when you depress the brake? If not, check the lock solenoid at the gear shift lever.
There is also a slight possibility that your park pin is jammed. If you're parked on a hill, it's likely. Have someone push the car back and forth as you try to take it out of park... JUST DON'T RUN THEM OVER. :)

Drops out of OD.


Fluid Change has nothing at all to do with a fix
Nothing at all & on a worn trans can cause slipping
In your case I assume a shop gave it a try
The hard shifts tell you the valve body needs cleaning
I would first look at all body data related to the trans,whatever
your truck has TCM Module whatever
I would check all bulletins at a repair shop in their data base
I would have a mechanic ride with you to look at the trans
with the scan tool on it & watch the speed sensor & any
external sensors you may have for correct data
No also check the brake switch
Does it go into Lock-up in most gears (brake sw )

HOW TO FIX GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK? HYUNDAI ACCENT


in order for your car to come out of park,the brake lights have to come on. it's a safety feature. are your brake lights coming on?if not then check for a blown brake light fuse in the fuse panel. if not that the brake light switch above the brake pedal may have gone bad.or another solution is, are you parked in a bind? with alot of pressure on the transmission? it will take 2 people to get it unstuck. 1st person in car with key on,2nd person rock car back and forth to free it from a bind. sometimes cars[automatics] do this.while the cars rocking try shifting out of park.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

My car wont shift into gear, while stepping on brake, anymore, we need to stick a key into the hole right on the console above the gear shift. Is this expensive to fix, what do we need


It can be as simple as a blown fuse. Do the brake lights work? The brake light switch turns on a soioid that ets you take it out of park. Theres a cable on colullum shifted cars that can break or come off but the brake light swich failing or even the high mount brake light bulbs being burnt out ( depending on what country the car was built for ) the don't what you driving if your brake lights don't work.

No break light, can not shift gear.


your brake light switch has failed. this will also allow you to shift out of park when you hit the brake pedal. when you hit the brake pedal the brake light should come on and the shift interlock solenoid will activate(you might hear a clicking sound under the dash or near the shift handle) allowing you to shift out of park.

I have 1998 bmw 528i, the problem is when the ASC light come on, the automatic transmission won't go into gear. and this only happen in low gears


Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the traction of the car if not fixed it can affect your rev limiter and slow performance

Brake light stays on in my 1998 monta carlo


It sounds like the switch above your brake pedal may be bad. When you push on the brakes, the switch pops out activating the brake lights, and when the pedal comes up, it presses the switch de-activating them. I don't know if that switch is directly tied in with the saftey light, but that should solve the no brake lights problem. You may want to check your fluid. Even though you may have good brakes, they could be a little worn, and have lowered your fluid level. That would be a good starting point. If the ANTILOCK light is on with your BRAKE light, It sounds like one of your sensors may have gone bad. You can find them pretty cheap. Hope that helps.
