Tire width should not affect your brake components at all, but with the added weight of the tires it will may take a little longer to stop due to the rolling mass, but it probably will not be noticeable.

What effect on braking does abs trouble cause

Hello Sharla,
Abs problems will only show up when the tires are slipping when the brakes are applied such as on ice or rainwater on the road and will often sound like a crunching sound inside the vehicle as the abs system pulse the braking system. There is no other symptoms when the tires are not slipping. If your vehicle is not stopping otherwise then you will need to have the brakes serviced, or have new tires installed if there is not much treads left on the tires!

Good Luck!

05 chrysler 300 code u1120 and u0121

Both of these have to do with the ABS system. U codes are lost communications codes from computers. Sometimes they are the wires. When you have different computers not communicating. Since yours are both from the ABS, I suspect the ABS module has died. Still could be the wire though (not likely). Check the wire for resistance. if good( less than 5 ohms) then the module has died. When you have ABS system malfunctions, the brakes revert back to the old system. Meaning if you hit the brakes to hard, they could lock the tires and have a skidding effect. BUT the brakes still work, they will stop the vehicle. Basically it is your call to have them fixed.

How do you rewhy is my brakes locking down while driving?how do i rest the abs system?

You have water in the brake system, it boils and applies the brakes.
Different size tires will set a trouble code, but not apply brakes.

Service abs light keeps comming in

usually a fault with one of the abs sensors fitted onto each wheel. it will disable the whole abs system so as no wheels lock up when the abs kicks in. this does not effect the standard brakes, it just keeps the tires from locking up in snow, rain etc. good-day ! first check the ABS fuse in fuse box.

Abs & traction control lites come on when turning hard left & accelerating . Why ?

sometimes something like this can be bad tires or bad brakes. first inspect your tires and brakes. it also depends on how fast you are going it could be normal actually. now my fathers s10 did the same thing but his brakes started clicking and slower to stop, but his abs computer was bad.

Anti-lock brakes kick in at random times when brakes are applied

Could be a couple of things.

1. How worn are your tires? Badly worn tires can cause the sensors to detect a skid much earlier.

2. One or more of the ABS sensors need replacing.

3. The ABS computer is bad.

2001 chevy s10 blazer abs light stays .

The abs is a add on for the brakes that when the tires come into a skid or slid they wont lock up..Your brakes will still work great with the abs disabled but your brakes will lock up if you push on the brakes hard enough to stop.Mainly abs works in slippery conditions not letting the tires lock up and keep the car rolling instead of making it slide..But no effect of the brakes will happen..Just make sure your fluid is full and there are no leaks and if you want to get them check you can stop by your local Auto Zone and they will scan your car for free and tell you what sensor is bad..I hope this was helpful to you...Have a great night

I asked the mechanic when I got the new tires put on and he said this could be 'fixed' by repacking the bearings. This is plausible if one or more are dragging and causing the sensors to detect too much variation in the speeds.

Since the new tires have been on, only a few errors and not any lately even with a sharp turn. The temperature seems to have an effect.

i will ask more mechanics in the next few weeks and report.

2002 Rodeo 4x2 LS (ABS Light is on)

Don't be cheap. Get some decent tires. About your ABS light, you might either have a master cylinder that's going bad or your pads are worn and ABS sensors are trying to tell you to have your brakes serviced.
