E280 1994: ABS lights comes on, Engine stall during driving

Hi, I have a serious problem with a locally assembled E280 W124 1994 model. Recently, i did a top engine overhaul and since then my ABS does blink from time to time though everyday when the ABS comes on, a few seconds later, the engine stall this happens when i am driving a any speed which can be seriously dangerous. The engine stalls after ABS lights come one and then the whole dash lights comes on.
I feel my local foreman in Malaysia doesn't know this problem. Help, can anyone give a solution on this?

Clean your ABS sensors thatg is mounted on the front disc rotors - they are usually covered with metal fillings and dust due to the magnetic properties of the sensors and also check or replace overload relay located behind battery - "Oldmerc" Australia

Check at over voltage protection relay behind battery. or test with new one. this relay sometimes cracked in side between poles and print circuit. b cause of strong pull or push. it control idle speed control, abs, fuel pump relay and ecu too.

2009 Jeep Lib Speedometer Stops, Stalls and LIghts come on


no , you were told wrong, but ABS is bad too. (or was just the stall resetting ABS to self test mode)
you have 2 independent failures.
1: brakes. (if ABS is on,, not stalled !!!)
2: engine. (this is IT, fix this)

you are guessing at ABS parts.? just throwing them. why do that?
my guess is you have a mech, and you want seconded guessing
on line with blind folks here.


the engine stalls moving,
that usually means the ASD relay dropped out, did the IMMO light come on? you need to look at what all lights did in the cluster at stall.
a stall causes rapid deceleration and loss of all engine power
and RPM drops and MPH drops and at the point of stall
all Cluster lamps go ON. they go to key on self test mode as
stated in the users manual. (lost sure)
to witness this, key on, no start, and bingo the self test happens.
those are NOT failures. its just a self test. Per manual.

Does the ABS stay off driving and not stalling or stalled.
yes, then ABS is ok......

did you take it to a shop (crooks) and tell them my ABS is on?
and they see it's out, and go, gee we can make some cash here for nothing. if you tell them wrong, they will in fact guess, and make you broke fast.
ABS can go on just with a bad brake caliper pad. a $10 part.
if car stops ok, and the lamp is out RUNNING !!!!
Then leave the ABS alone. why assume the most expensive part on car is bad, why do that...???? why not put on new pads. and rotors.
first. then test the ABS. ABS is not magic it cant help stop any car with bad manual brakes. not at all.
end brakes; now back to ENGINE.


then fix the stalls,
here is the stalls list, for only the ASD.
(even a tuneup, will end stalling)

THE ASD is the funky Jeep thing, that kills the engine for many a reason. (there are tests for each case failure)

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html


if the CEL lamp comes on driving < NOT STALLED)
then connect any scan tool, to the DLC connector at knees.
and scan the PCM for DTC errors.
then post those.
keep in mind, errors can AUTO clear, so not seeing them
in REAL TIME< means you missed the boat.
that is, you didnt get the facts of the failure.
but errors still in effect are stored and you can in fact
scan them parked, key on.
the CEL is only a SMOG light, you must scan to see the other 100+ errors. possible.

Better:
find a real ASE shop, and ask them to fix the stalls, (car stops good)
then they will fix that
and by magic the stalls are gone and the dash lamps go happy.

Check engine light just came on, car shut down, waited a few minutes and car started back up. have replaced battery, and Alternator recently


Hi there:
The Four Most Common Check Engine Light Scenarios and What to Do:
* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.

Hope this helps; Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have a toyota corolla 1996. The abs light is steady on. I tried to erase the codes by pumping the brake pedal 8 times before 3 secs. of turning the ig. switch off and on. Is there any other effectiv


There are many things that can cause your ABS light to come on. Some are serious, so you should never just ignore the light.
But there are times when the light comes on and can be met with a simple solution.
For instance, a dirty ABS wheel sensor can cause the system to trigger the ABS light during self evaluation.
You'll be shocked when you see how much road gunk can accumulate on this very important sensor.
Even if your ABS light hasn't made an appearance, it's a good idea to clean the sensor.
A good time to do it would be during brake pad replacement when you have the wheels off anyway.

99 Honda Accord EX V6 check engine light comes on and blinks ten times when I start the car along with the SRS light being on for a short period of time. The other problem has been the car shutting off...


Your vehicle may be part of a 2002 honda/acura recall. Faulty ignition switch!! Typical symptoms are: Random stalls, hard start, no spark, power loss (symptoms progress in hotter weather). When the vehicle stalls/shuts off while in motion, usually the speedometer drops to "0" while in motion. Some warning light not lit when ignition is set to "on" (chk engine/ABS/Brake etc.). Call your local dealer with your VIN# on hand and check if your vehicle is part of the recall. Refer to faulty ignition switches, affected years (1998-2002 models), accords/preludes/pilot/Odyssey/Civic/CR-V and various Acura models.

My abs light stays on after a few mins of driving and stays on


I would scan it for body codes-eg. ABS codes. Just Brakes wouldn't be my choice for any repairs. Find a good ASE Certified local shop. Discribe the slipping,stalling and shuttering. Sounds more like a trans issue.
