    No I know that.... as soon as you touch the brake pedal the abs starts pulse the pedal. I'm pretty sure thats wrong because the abs use wheel sensors to detect wheel speed and compare the speeds to see if your skidding/starting to skid. Otherwise if it worked the way you say they wouldnt need the wheel sensors.... Thanks though

ABS CHECK LIGHT DOESNT COME ON WHEN YOU TURN KEY ON


1. I would not be concerned because if there was a failure in the ABS you would definitely get an ABS warning light and the ABS and most likely the stability control/traction control systems (with added warning lights) will all switch off .

2. You can test if the ABS is operational. On a very quiet damp surface, straight, wide road( with NO other cars around), apply your brakes hard from a very low speed - up to 20 mph ONLY driving in a straight line - until the car stops. The front brakes should attempt to lock up under hard braking and if the ABS is operational you will feel it kick in and the brake pedal will pulsate as the ABS constantly allows brake pressure and then releases it to prevent the wheels from locking up on the damp road. If the ABS does not kick in be ready to release the brake pedal quickly to allow the wheels to rotate so you can steer the car safely. Without the ABS the front wheels should begin to lock up on the damp road surface due to the low level of tire grip. ONLY test this at very low speed and ONLY when driving in a straight line on a straight section of wide road with no other vehicles around.

The noise and the kick back you are experiencing is the ABS system kicking in which should not happen unless you completely lock up the brakes.

Have 1992 accord ex with abs , abs light is on and the brake peddle goes nearly to floor before car stops. put a new brake booster and bleed the brakes and pads or good.


the abs and brakes are related, but not brakes are not dependent on abs. you mentioned you got new brake pads and the brake pedal got fixed? if it didnt get fixed, then your master cylinder might be going out, its the only logical thing if you bled your brake pads. about the abs, it stands for anti-lock braking system. what it does is at instant high speed stops, it pumps your brakes very fast to stop your wheels from locking up, which prevents your car from skidding, and allows you to manouver your steering wheel as you are braking. very helpful, but not essential. it is like passanger or even drivers airbags, definately better to have, but not essential. if you dont have money to fix your abs right now, dont worry about it, as at least half the cars on the road, including newer, basic cars are not equiped with abs. another thing, abs is a relative new technology, which became common in the 1990s, which means before that, cars didnt have abs, so if someone says to fix it right away because it is 100 percent dangerous, they are just exagerating. just take a little extra precaution while braking, thats all. on the other hand, if you do have the money to fix the abs, you can start by retrieving the code first using a paper clip:

ABS seems to kick back on brake peddle at slow speeds


low speed activation of abs[will not set off code ] can also do brake studder without touching brake usually does it under 5 mph the problem is one of the sensors is dirty or has some corrosion on it ===chevy back in 2000 did a partial recall on the tahoe for the same problem the fix was to remove the sensor and clean it if the corrosion was to bad than sensor was replaced === the problem with no code is u dont know which sensor is causing problem u would need to remove both and check them

When pressing on my brakes going 15 mph, my brake pedle push back everytime the speed goes down to 10mph just before I come to a stop. Its like the ABS system is kicking and I hear a wineing noise...1992...


This is very common of Hondas if the front rotors have been turned(machined)off of the car or if an inferior quality rotor has been installed. Replace the front rotors and brake pads. This should cure your issue. Let me know if you need any instructions or diagrams.

ABS brakes not working


If you can feel the pedal pulsating and the light turns on the Abs is doin its job. if you want a better stop you could try a brake pad upgrade to ceramic pads and for even more stoping power add an after market drilled and sloted rotors.

Brake pedal a.b.s pulsation at slow speeds on dry road.It wont do it all the time. It is on a 2000 chevy silverado 1500 4x4. I can hear the abs kick in when this happens.


You may see the abs light come on in your dash. I would plug a OBD II reader in and retrieve the codes.
I would say you either have a sensor that has gone bad or possibly a wire is shorting.
You can see the wheel sensor if you turn your wheels, and look down by the wheel hub bearing.
You can here the abs go whrrrrrrrr, when you step on the brake, and your braking flucuating.
Please let me know what you find.

Or you could just pull the fuse for the abs and not have abs but you won't wreck from pulsating pedal.
