    Same model year and engine size Dodge Caravan. Both ABS and Brake warning lights are on and I have no power assist to brakes. Took it to a mechanic (NAPA) who said the pump inside the booster was likely shot and it doesn't operate on a vacuum system. List price for Manufacturer's original part is $2800. Internet searches show a Cardone part that might be what is needed for about $100. Still checking it out.

What is the main cause of a hard pedal is failure of brake booster.....check and make sure that the vacuum to the booster is not kinked and is connected tightly....This is whats wrong if it feels as though you have no power brakes....Good Luck

I have a 2010 Dodge Caravan with ABS, Traction control, Eps lights on I Changed all breaks and rear rotors. Then a few days later lights came on. How do I reset the lights? Thank you in advance.

these lights are on because the ABS system has detected a problem. The only way to turn them out properly is with a scan tool that communicates with the ABS system. When these lights are on, the ABS is deactivated and will not work in a panic stop however, the main brakes will function normally.

I have a dodge caravan that has the ABS and the BRAKE light on the pedal is rally hard but it goes away once in a while for like a day and all over again

Dodge used an ABS system for 2 years that didn't have a vacuum booster. Instead it used ABS pressure from the pump motor for the power brakes. This is the system you have. The ABS pump is mounted on top of the transmission. Is the pump running when the pedal is hard to push? Sometimes the pressure sensor in the ABS module will go bad and the pump won't run. You will get a hard pedal and the ABS light and the BRAKE lights will be on. The code in the ABS control module will be LOW BRAKE ACCUMULATOR PRESSURE.

The ABS light comes on in my 1997 dodge ram van and I have no troubleshooting info. Also I need to know the location of the control module.

Here are a few common causes for the ABS, ( Anti-lock Breaking system ), light.

1. Check brake fluid level, sometimes this can trigger the light.

2. When your brake pads get worn down, this too can trigger the ABS light.
Often new brakes will correct the problem.

The control module, ( onboard computer system ), is generally located near the front of the engine compartment. Most have a large plug with many wires.

I hope this helps.

2007 Dodge Caravan ABS light stays on after

Common issue when a wheel sensor gets faulty.On every wheel there is a sensor which informs the ABS system about wheel speed.If any of them is broken then the ABS system locks up and you get the warning light.In this case your brakes are working just as fine but you dont have ABS so wheels can block when you push the brake hard enough.Trouble code reader can tell you which one is faulty.

Antilock brake system in 1992 dodge grand caravan

Recall is a recall, doesnt matter who the owner is. CAll the dealership tell them that you have this year and model and make and they will ask for the VIN and give it to them. If it comes up in the system that it falls under the recall, then have it towed to the shop and tell them that it is a recall repair and make sure it is noted on the paper work

Need Break Booster Replaced

The brake booster/ naster cylinder is located on the firewall on the drivers side of the vehicle. The master cylinder has a resivour (sp) which has a cap and holds brake fluid. The brake booster is right behind that, the master cylinder is bolted right to the booster. The booster looks like a big circle about 10 to 12 inches round and usually 4 to 6 inches thick. It will have a vaccum hose coming off the booster and going to the intake manifold. The master cylinder with have hard lines coming off it which are brake lines. Hope this helps.
