Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

Truck shakes when I brake

My whole truck shakes when I brake. For GP I replaced everything except the rear anti lock sensors, from the brake line to the Lug Bolts on all 4 wheels.

Im thinking the Metering Valve or the RWAL Valve. Except for the little research I know nothing about ABS.

Anyone else ever have this problem?

Thanks!

    Hmmm Guess they dont carry over the info ... Its a 97 Ram 2500 4x4 Diesel extra cab if it matters with Rear anti lock.

    Hmmm Interesting! good information stormbrewin... So would the back pressure damage the Metering Valve or the RWAL Valve?



    The problem didnt occur after changing the brakes but I will be adding that procedure next time. I have changed the fronts at least 6 times. I replaced everything front and back after I had the problem since I am getting close to 200K miles I figured it would be a wise move. And kind of hoped it was something warped that would go away ... wasnt that lucky

    Thanks for the input Stormbrewin. I found out how to check the Metering Valve and being that there isnt much left after that if it is good, throwing in a new sensor couldnt hurt (depending on cost) and that would leave the RWAL Valve if the sensor doesnt fix it. This is the only problem I have had with the truck other than resetting the low speed Idle ... That wasnt self inflicted =) ... or was it self inflicted? at 200K miles of hard driving ... cant complain!

If the pistons in your brake calipers wernt pushed back with the brake hose crimped and bleed valve opened slightly to allow fluid to drain rather than going back to the brake master cylinder you will have problems with the Abs.Have heard of a few people who have changed thier brake pads and had exactly the same problem you now have.Not an expert on abs but you are going to need to find somebody who knows how to fix it.Never got caught on this one personaly as we were warned by various manufacturers about this problem coming up by back yard mechanics trying to change pads without realising the hazard.

    It kind of sounds like the pressure required when braking is not being maintained at a consistant pressure and going into anti lock too early.Wether its the sensors telling the brake system that the wheels are locking up or wether its the pressure in the Abs component i cant tell you.

    Cant help with that one as Abs was not a system that i studied in any way.Its a specialised area that was better left to those who had the qualifications.

ATI LOCK LIGHT ON BRAKES WORKING BUT DONT FEEL THE SAME AS NORMAL


Check Brake fluid level.

When the ABS light is on, the brakes should revert to standard braking.

The only time ABS should invoke is when the tires are slipping as sensed by the wheel speed sensors when the wheel locks up on any of the axles.

There are two basic types of anti-lock systems available for this vehicle; a Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brake system and 4 Wheel Anti-Lock (4WAL) brake system. The 4WAL system has two variations; a 3 sensor system and a 4 sensor system. The 2WD vehicles will be equipped with the 3 sensor system, but the AWD vehicles can be equipped with either. The systems are easily identified by looking at the rear wheels for a sensor harness. If there is a sensor harness and thus, rear wheel sensors, it is the 4 sensor system. If the vehicle is not equipped with a harness, it is the 3 sensor system. The 4 sensor system takes it speed references from each of the wheels. The 3 sensor system takes its speed references from each of the front wheels and the vehicle speed sensor located in the transmission (2WD) or the transfer case (AWD). The RWAL system components consist of the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS), the Electronic Control Unit (ECU), the isolation/dump valve and the Vehicle Speed Sensor Buffer (also known as the Digital Ratio Adapter). The ECU also receives signals from various brake switches. The 4WAL system components consist of the Electro-Hydraulic Control Unit (ECHU) valve (also known as the Brake Pressure Modulator Valve or BPMV), the wheel speed sensors, Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) on 3 sensor systems and the VSS Buffer. prev.gif next.gif

Does my truck have abs brakes? It is 4x4 1992 chevy 1500


Your truck is equipped with RWAL or rear wheel anti-lock. This just worked on the rear brakes(duh) but the speed sensor was taken from the speedometer drive at the transmission tailshaft, and would allow one rear wheel to lock as long as the speedo kept turning. Later models were improved with wheel speed sensors at each wheel.

Brake pedal goes to the floor only when engine is running. Pedal is perfect with engine off.


your power brake booster is blown out
the seal has a leak in it
run the truck for 3 minutes and shut it off. with the windows up listen carefully while you gently apply the brakes
listen for a hissing sound of air leaking.
the sound of these leaking is a very soft sound

Was the proportion valve and mater cylinder replaced? The problem most likely is a bad proportion valve it doesn't allow the fluid to return to the master and therefore stays in the system and locks-up the brakes.
