Hi
Sounds like a brake master cylinder problem to me.
I see you posted this Nov O8.
Possibly you know this by now ?
Good Luck !
John.

Have the same abs problem with my 1998 silver ado z71 as many have stated before. Mine will lock the back wheels at slow speeds. The abs dash light is on and seems that both front sensors are reading an...


abs systems do not lock on the brakes
they release the brakes when the wheels stop spinning and when the wheels start turning again apply the same brake pressure as before the wheels stopped spinning
check the proportioning valve to the rear brakes to ensure that it is not acting as a one way valve and that is causing the problems
if the compensating port in the master cylinder for the rear wheels is blocked that also will lock the rear brakes

Rear brakes locking(until abs kicks in) with little front brake application and very light pedal pressure. also have really poor hard/emergency braking response, vehicle doesnt stop as aggresively as it...


It could be a proportioning valve, and there's also the chance that the portion of the master cylinder that operates the front brakes is going bad. Have you had a pressure check done on the front brake system? Also, some vehicles have a variable proportioning valve, so that when the vehicle is loaded, it allows more pressure to the rear brakes. These can sometimes stick in place, causing the fault that you describe. Hope this helps you out.

Rear passenger side wheel/brake locking at first touch of pedal


You possibly have air in your lines. When you bleed them you need to start at the rear passenger, then rear driver, then front passenger and then front driver. If you are certain you have no air in the line then you have a bad brake hose/brake line. Replace this and your problem should go away. If not then the culprit should be the distribution or master cylinder. I hope this helps.

1996 dodge ram 3500, abs brakes are locking up


is it the front or rear locking up? you really have to have this truck loaded (load valve under bed) before the back brakes come on and i think these are the same as my 1999 2500 where the rear is only abs, and not on the front..dumb design i know, but thats how it is...determining if its rear abs only and which axle is locking up will help pin point the problem...i put 100000 miles on my dodge since i got it in 2001 and i put 8 sets of pads on the front and just changed the rear lining and thats only because the rear wheel cylinder was leaking causing the rear brakes to lock up..

Rear brakes wont apply consistantly


1- brake system low on fluid,
2- improperly bled (air in lines).
3- Master cylinder (applies equal pressure to all 4 cylinders) is bad.

Rear wheels not spinning. Front wheels spin when in 4 drive.


Hi First of all check the adjustment on the rear wheel thats sticking sometimes the brake pad comes away from the metal it is fixed to this maybe the case on your vehicle, the make & year of vehicle would help further but I a sure you got something to check now. Please leave me feedback, Malcolm Campbell.

ABS brake problem, 1994 Chevrolet Corsica


You have a bad master cylinder my friend, all the braking force is going to the rear hence the lockup, the front brakes most likely don't do anthing, all mdern brake systems are split, so you have at least 2 wheels working, in effect the car has 2 master cylinders in one unit.
