I don't think hard brakeing is affected by the ABS system. ABS only kicks in during a panic stop. Hard brakeing could be caused by many things, but the system is really pretty simple. I would check the pads (or shoes) first to make sure there is adequate material for the brakes to work properly and there is no contamination of the rotors or drums. If those look good, it is probably a problem with the master cylinder. Brake jobs are not fun, but well within the scope of a weekend mechanic. A master cylinder is on the border of what you should tackle. Remember, these things stop your 2 ton car for you, you need for them to work properly.
Try your library for a repair manual on your Pacifica, and look into the brake section for more info & troubleshooting ideas. Libraries used to have a large section of auto repair manuals, they were in great demand at one time. If you come up short at the library, try the internet. You could always try to buy a manual from Amazon too.

SOURCE: 2004 pt cruiser keeps setting DTC's P0032 & P0038 ,sensors have been replaced with NTK

Hello, First, you have to clear some of the Codes with a scanner or wait after 25-35 start-ups for the information to cycle out of the system.

Next, make sure you have replaced the correct Bank or lower or upper sensor when there can be 4 sensors on the exhaust.

The wiring running to your sensors may be bad. Also, if anyone has fooled with the wiring to the sensors, some have cooling tubes which are embedded in the wiring. Sometimes people rewire the connectors to fit different O2 sensor plug-ins and the cooling tube is cut. When these plug-ins are manipulated this way the sensors overheat.

I can't say offhand about how your PT cruiser has its wires configured into junction connectors. They may be replaceable junctions or may be moulded into the housing of the O2 control unit as 1 piece.

You will need to ask at an Autoparts store or go to a Salvage yard and try to find a harness you can use. It is not impossible that the sensors you purchased could be bad. You should be able to get some sort of continuity value from the prong connectors on the O2 sensors to see if you have a circuit in the part.

I hope my solution is helpful, perhaps a Chrysler mechanic will answer you.

id check your caliper to see if the piston is compressing all the way if not check your fluid it should be clean not brown or if you have been through large amounts of water if it has gotten into the brake system and check your bleeder valve to check if it has rotted or come lose or if you have a break in the lines or air, most likely your caliper is failing to compress.

Yellow warning indicator lamp of a tringle with an excalmation point in the center and a counterclockwise arrow arround the triangle ---what does it mean?


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.

The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (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.: brake pedal switch, front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning sign went ON after ESP warning light. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road.
Good Luck!

There's a service bulliten about that problem with rust build-up on the front hubs pushing the sensors out of posistion [ most common on the pickups in areas that use road salt ], it happens mostly at very low speed. The best way to find out the problem is to have the system scanned.

Same problem. ABS light, Brake ligth. Speedometer not working. I un hooked the nbattery for a while and all seem to be woring for now? Any ideas


Hi these trucks are know for the front hub bearings to fail., the wheel speed sensor is located in side of them and serviced as a unit. Mostly the set the abs light while doing slow turns your will hear the abs motor and feel the break pedal pulsate.

ABS problem with GMC 2002 Sierra


its a low speed abs activation the problem is in the front sensors they need to be cleaned or replaced they [or one] probably has some corrosion on the sensor --[the 99 chevy tahoes had a limited recall over this issue and the fix was to remove and clean the abs sensor or if to corroded replace ] this problem doesnt set off an abs code or trouble light also sometimes the abs will activate by itself at under 4 mph without even touching brake

ABS brakes shudder


YOU NEED A SCANNER TO MONITOR THE WHEEL SPEED SENSORS. THE ABS IS SENSING A SKID AND THE ABS IS ACTIVATED WHEN THIS HAPPENS. THERE MAY BE A CODE FOR THE HUB THAT IS CAUSING THE ABS TO ACTIVATE.

CHECK THE WIRES FROM THE SENSORS FOR BREAKS OR CHAFFING. AN OHM READING OF THE SENSOR SHOULD BE 850-1200 OHMS, AND AND A-C VOLTAGE READING SHOULD BE 100 MV WITH YOU TURNING THE WHEEL BY HAND.
