Just came across your posting, not sure if you have repaired the vehicle yet or not. just reading through this and it sounds like a faulty brake vacuum booster. the booster supplies power to the brake system by using engine vacuum

Clicking noise goes away when braking


Look at the constant velocity joints on that side. When the rubber boot tears it lets road dirt in which fouls the grease and allows premature wear on the cv joint components.

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

Brake booster vacuum leak


Your brakes appear to be dragging i.e. brake pads still contacting the rotor. It could be air in your hydraulic braking system. Have the braking system flushed and bled.

Mitsubishi montero limited and the ABS light and brake light is on and has a buzzer/alarm on always. To brake the car you really have to press hard on the brakes. Please what are the possible solutions.


Immediately check your brake fluid level. If its low, you may have a leak within the brake system. This also allows air to enter the brake lines causing insufficient braking power. If levels are ok, have the ABS actuator checked for proper function. Have it diagnosed immediately, as this may cause a major accident.

Thanks for your quick reply. The brake switch


I didn't see the first question ... I'm glad you were satisfied ...

No, what you describe is not normal ... the alarm should not sound when you step on the brake. You have something crossed.

BEWARE ... there are wires down there that control the air bag ... they should be specially marked ... just so you know they are there ... dont mess with them.
