  • jkbitner Apr 24, 2009

    I have a 2003 Buick Rendezvous. I have changed pads, rotators, back real hub assmebly, and yet my front brakes grind like the pads are bad. There is NO leak in the brake lines. ABS light comes on whenever it feels like. Yet the brakes still grind. Any other part to replaced? I have replaced one bearing on the right front. Is there a recall on this problem?

    Any advice you can possible send me would be grateful.



    Thanks,

    Joanna

I found my solution on the web a few years ago. My 2002 RVS had permanent ABS lights and no ABS.

It was suggested to check the ABS electrical connections at the brake disks . There are quick connects there and I found a corroded connector on the front passenger side. My wife started the RVS and put it in gear. With the brake pedal pressed, I wiggled the connectors and the ABS light went "off and on" right away. I replaced the connector and it never happened again. It is likely 4 years ago.

Worth a try.

Hi, i'm a g.m. master tech., there was a special policy on g.m. front hubs for this vehicle caused by internal bearing wear. It is typical to have a bearing where out and cause a code to set for that perticular hub. The reluctor in the hub wears onto the pickup causing this, do you have any abnormal noise while moving down the street? A slight change in direction will change the pitch of the noise? this is called loading and unloading the hubs on the vehicle. It may help you find out what hub is causing the light, if it is quiet then you probally will have to get it scanned, i'm not sure but auto zone used to scan for free, this will mostlikey reveal a bad hub, untill light is reset after repairs don't expect abs

SOURCE: ABS & Brake warning lights turn on

it is possible but its also possible you have a wheel speed sensor acting up. you would have to have it scanned for codes

ABS + ESP lights staying on dashboard


wow no year car, now that is a challenge , no?
abs is first.
first- first are brakes.
abs stuck on key on and running full time right?
so check brakes for damage or worn out.
brake fluid level not falling? look yet? look when checking oil every time.
abs can not work on cars with bad brakes, (its not god like)
then check for ABS sensor damage and its wires. under car.
then scan the ABS. got errors, sure you do.
but what? you didnt scan it first.
or read the manual> RTM?
its only 4 bucks to read it.

ABS LIGHT AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT STAYS ON


ABS = Anti-lock Brake System.
TC = Traction Control System (Engine Control Module).
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS & TC Electronic Control Units (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

I suspect bad brake pedal switch, but you should scan the ABS & TC ECU's.

Abslight stays on no brake lights


Fuse 12 (10 Amps) may be burned out. Its located in "Junction Block". Losing
fuse 12 would kill the ABS systems and light the ABS dashboard light.

Fuse 11 (20 Amps) may be out. Its located in "Power Distribution Center". Losing fuse 11
would kill the brake lights, and light the ABS dashboard light. If fuse 11 is blown,
check your (3) brake light sockets for shorts of any type, or fuse 11 will just blow again.

brake light is on because it is time to change the brakes or you have a leak in the system. the abs may be because of sensor gone bad because of why the brake light is on.

Dashboard brake light stays on, 1990 Suburban


Most likely. Usually what happens to mine, is the wires to the sensors get broken from stones hitting them. i splice them back together and they are good for a while. Or the sensors get dirty.

Abs light emergency light stay on


Hi, You should check for a sligt break fluid leak from the break light switch (attacked to the master cylinder). Yeah, I know this seems strange, but on my 2001 this leak caused all types of problems with lots of dashboard indicators. The leaking switch was a recall for Ford Trucks, but not the minivans. Hope this helps

Abs on dashboard stays lit all the time.


The only way to know axactly what happen is with a diagnostic computer.
Because the ABS use a Speed sensor on each of the wheels.
Hydraulic selenoids on the ABS box or Module..
If the light is on. its mean the Anti Lock Brake System is inactive., You gonna brake like any car with no ABS.
I hope this information work for you.
