Brake grabbing - Diamante Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Nov 01, 2008

    I have a 1998 Diamante wagon, the front left side caliper locked (due to lack of fluid and overheating). I traced the brake lines down to the modulator @ the ABS controller. There are 4 brake lines that leave the modulator and go to the wheels (calipers). The one line that is not getting fluid is the left front caliper. I am not sure if this is common, or the solenoids for the modulator go bad. Is there anyway to fix this problem, and has anyone had a similar problem, not the exact same, just somewhat like my problem. I know that ABS modules can be rebuilt, but I dont seem to have a problem electrically. The light never came on, even when driving. This seems to be a mechanical issue with the modulator. Any advise would be helpful.

Why does my 2006 commander rear brake grab when turning?

hi, if the grab is while braking, there may be an uneven piston to pad/drum wear or adjustment -- check brake assembly and pressure equalizers on the lines -- they put equal hydrolic pressure to both wheels - if one is bad, that will also cause problem of grab

Why when I step on brake an hear hissing noise under dash?

If nobody has helped you yet.....I have 2 things that are possible; 1st is the vacumn assist booster, while it sits in the engine side of the firewall your brake pedal is connected to it, it serves to 'amplify' your pedal pressure. A vacumm leak into the cab compartment may cause the hiss and the inconsistency in the way the brakes grab. The second may be a cruise control switch the earlier ones were controlled by vacumm but I do not know when they switched to electronic controls but this would have nothing to do with the break 'grab'. Best of luck.

My brakes grab on my 2000 jeep cherokee classic.

you will need to have the brakes checked, you may have a bad hose or sticking caliper, also if you have drum rear brakes then the rear drums may be out of round, this is if its the rear brakes that are grabbing, if it is then you may just need the drums resurfaced and also make sure theres no gear oil or brake fluid on the shoes. if the fronts are grabbing then you may have a bad brake hose or a bad caliper.

Brakes seem to stick.

If you have rear drum brakes then a brake shoe could have come apart causing the wheel to grab and skid on the pavement. If you can see external signs of dark wet areas that would be a leaking brake cylinder which can also cause the brakes to grab. The other possibiity, more common with disc brakes, is that a brake calliper is closing, but is not releasing properly when you let off the brake pedal. This would require replacement of the disc caliper on the wheel where it is grabbing.
Warped rotors can also cause the brake to "grab" when you don't want them to, but generally it will grab and release with a "pulsating' feeling if that's the problem.

Rear brakes grab when they are cold drum style

This is a common problem. Remove the drums, and clean out the brake dust with brake cleaner and readjust the brakes.
