1993 ford F350 Rear brakes (ABS) inoperative when pulling weight

When the vehicle is pulling a bobcat for example, and the brakes are applied, the rear brakes don't appear to pulse, lock-up or work at all - is this a defect of the vehicle or is their a remedy for this problem?

    It only happens when pulling the trailer, otherwise, it seems to stop fine.

I think there is no malfunction in the braking system itself. it would be wise to ask the local dealer what is the maximum towing weight capacity as you may be towing a heavier load allowed the manufacturer??
Ask them also if this model is equipped with an adjustable LSPV(Load sensing proportioning valve).
Cheers.

Many audi and vw models manufactured starting in the later '90s and continuing to present, use the bosch 5.3 abs controller, which is prone to catastrophic failure, ostensibly due to defective design. this module controls multiple brake-related functions including the abs which is important for winter driving, but the most critical function of this module is probably the electronic brake force distribution, or ebd. these vehicles are designed such that if the ebd is inoperative, the proportion of hydraulic force applied to the rear brakes during emergency braking is as great as it is during moderate braking effort when there is minimal transfer of vehicle weight to the front wheels. the ebd is supposed to adjust the front/rear braking distribution dynamically according to the measure of the deceleration, so that the rear wheels will not lock up during emergency braking. if this module should fail during emergency braking on dry pavement, the rear wheels could lock up and cause an accident which could easily include fatalities. this is an expensive repair for owners, costing roughly $2000, and many owners have probably put off the repair indefinitely. evidence which can be found through a simple web search, suggests that the problem is widespread, and that if it has not already led to serious accidents, it is only a question of time. this problem is genuine, and vw/audi should be compelled to take immediate corrective action.

97 f350 diesel, abs light(on the dash) began blinking and when i parked the truck when i went back to it could not get it out of the parked position. would the abs light have something to do with that


Sounds like the abs system has failed and the brakes are applied. The abs system applies pressure to the wheels when needed to prevent wheel spin. If the equalizer valve sticks or the system is not able to release the brakes will lock on.
I would start with a scan for trouble codes.

What could be causing my 1997 Ford E350 15 pass.club wagon to have excessive vibration when braking from highway speeds 60mph & up. Not so bad at slower speeds? Ford Tech said brakes were good. No...


ABS------ Anti Lock Brakes will cause a chatter if applied with a lot of weight pushing it. An E350 is a big rig.
Might ask your Ford Tech about that possibility.

2005 ford f350 4*4 hard pull to left .I have


When you say it pulls to the left, I am assuming only when the brakes are applied. And if the pull problem was there before you replaced the calipers, it is a problem like a plugged primary brake line from the master cylinder or proportioning valve. The master cylinder could be bad. The new right caliper could be bad. Need to disconnect hoses closer to master cylinder and hit brakes to see if fluid flows good. Then follow hoses down and repeat.

If this happened after the new pads were put on sometimes the pad length is different on the inner and outer pad and both longs on one side will grip more than the 2 short pads on the other side.

If this pulls without brakes on you may have stuck left 4x4.

You can try to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and see if the ABS light clears. If not Autozone or Oreillys may have another scanner to fit the ABS diagnostic socket, a free test.

When you did the rear brakes, the emergency brakes inside the rear rotors can sometimes crumble. Need to clean sensors because dirt and brake debris will keep sensors from counting wheel revolutions.

You could also have a ABS diverter valve stuck and not centered. Sometimes its necessary to rebleed to center the part and clear the light.

Vehicle shakes


I doubt it. You'd have an ABS light on. All wheel are warm to scalding hot after even light driving. ABS systems do not apply brakes. They unapply them. They simply cut the fluid to one of the wheels / axle sets of brakes. (Newer stability control systems use the brakes) In your case. The ABS can deactivate either front wheel independantly, or the both the rear brakes together. You can take the wheel off & flip the pad & piston up to check it if you want, but I wouldn't think it was the brake dragging at the top of my list, no.
