SOURCE: abs light comes on & stays on. no brake one

Your brake pedal needs adjusting! And your brakes need to be replaced! Did the people @ midas look for any air bubbles while they replaced the Master cylinder? Did they get them out? Did they even look at the brakes? All of them?

Take it buy Auto Zone when the light is on and get them to check the code for you. I don't know why it would do it while cold and not hot.

Need input on engine code for engine temp staying low too long


Have you not googled your obd codes
& diagnosed them, to find a problem

No idea why you would do all you did

You always resolve code related issues first

The coolant temp should be 210 all the time

Sounds like your not looking at scan tool data
or following any factory trouble charts or actually
know what coolant temp is,your just assuming & not
doing the required testing to verify things

Cooling fan stays on after turning off car


Taken from other previous solution (but it's right): the cooling fans are switched off and on by a relay. either this relay bad and staying on all the time, or something else is bad and telling it to stay on all the time. you might unplug the engine coolant temp sensor and see if the fans switch off. if they do you have a bad temp sensor, if they don't you probably have a bad relay. they will test either for you at most car parts stores. the relay will be in the underhood power distribution box, it plugs in like a fuse. disconnect the battery negative terminal before you start unplugging things from the power distribution box. hope that helps

AC blows for a while then quits...sometimes for short time it is off then other times stays off for minutes. 2 Benz places have worked on it $$$$ but only last for a short time then does it again and...


Go to benzworld.org and do a search but what I think you will find is 1 of 3 issues. Drier is out of dessicant, compressor speed sensor switch is going out , or the Klima relay behind the battery is bad.

Heater fan suddenly stopped working


Please understand that the fan may stay on or off for several minutes even after the engine is shut down and the keys are removed!!! There is a sensor which detects heat coming from the engine. This same fan will stay on until the system reaches a lower temp. You may always reset your vehicle programming for this same device by removing the red lead to your battery and then replacing it after several seconds. Please follow up with a reply if this does not help your situation.

Cold cranking amps


I have a similar situation but it turns out that I am also having an unsolved problem with my 2005 Ford 500 electrical system. Although it could be due to a weak battery I have reason to believe that its root cause that something is wrong with the brake light system. Sometimes when I drive the brake lights stay on and other times they don't. Yesterday, with my foot off the brake pedal (in Park) the brake lights would stay on until I lifted the brake pedal. Today, I can not get it to repeat the symptom nor could an expert auto technican find the problem within several minutes. The battery has been tested and found to have 40% of its life(?) remaining.
