Stopping problem on my 2000 F250 with V10 with ABS in the rear only

In a panic stop from approx. 50 MPR the front brakes do not lock up not do I feel any pulsing in the brake pedal or hear any clicking noise. I have done this repeatedly and always get the same results. Normal day to day stopping is OK. When I turn the ignition switch to the start engine position the ABS light come ON and when I release the key the light goes OUT. I've taken the truck to a local dealer and they find to error code(s). Rotors and pads both front and rear have been replaced and are almost new.

If the ABS lite is comming on, the module is detecting a problem in that system. There will most likely be a code in the computer. take it to your dealer and have it check. The most common problem i see in these is a failed speed sensor.

SOURCE: Brakes

I have experienced problems with my Passat, when working on the brakes it is very easy to hit the sensors, these are a push fit, if they are not fully home the light comes on. simply push the sensors until they click home.
On a side issue I have problems with the traction control affecting acceleration in a corner, I traced this to a garage fiting a 60% tyre instead of a 65% tyre
Hope this helps

SOURCE: pulsation in brake pedal and rear end hops during braking

What happens is if you have a bad front wheel bearing when you brake that wheel will turn in or out,when this happens it throws the four wheel alignment out and since this is a solid rear axle,it's forcing it to flex on the suspension,wich could cause the rear tires to bite on the outside edge of one tire and the inside edge of the other,thats one possible the other would be that the rear brakes are are not slowing the wheels evenly causing the same issue.I saw this problem with a bad front wheel bearing on a Nissan Pathfinder but not as pronouced due to the independent rear suspension. Check the front wheel bearings,which of course will mean getting the calipers off the rotors,and then check for any movement in the rotor,if there is check the hub nut,if it's loose tighten it and check for play in the rotor if there is still play that's going to be caused by a bad bearing.You can check the braking in the rear with a simple spring scale(like the ones used for fishing),with the wheels removed have someone apply enough pedal pressure to just engage the brakes but still allow movement attach the scale hook to a wheel stud and pull until it starts to move and note how many pounds of pressure it takes to move the hub.If it's uneven chech your adjusters and even them if needed and then retest,if still uneven you'll need to bleed them again.As far as the dark black substance in the fluid I would say you may gotten a contaminent in the fluid.Brake fluid gets kind of a rusty reddish residue when it breaks down.If I missed anything or you need clarification don't hesitate to ask I'm home all day.Hope this helps solve your problem.

What is a abs modular on a Escalade Cadillac?


Jesse, The module will not stop fluid to rear brakes, a bad master cylinder will,leaking lines, air in brake system, faulty metering block if equipped, collapsed flex lines or pinched brake line faulty caliper or brake cylinders,etc. will cause the possible feeling of no rear brakes.
(ABS Module components) the ABS speed sensors and the ABS control module . When the brake is applied, the ABS control module reads the speed data from the speed sensor and sends the correct pressure to each wheel to prevent any wheel lock up, eg. sliding/skidding Links below have more info.

What is the ABS system


The ABS system is the vehicles Anti-lock Braking System. This system works in conjunction with your regular braking system. When active during a wheel lock up situation it will prevent the wheel or wheels from locking aiding in steering or control loss due to a lock up situation. EX: slippery roads, emergency stopping, etc. The system is controlled by multiple sensors and a central control module. During hard or panic braking use steady pressure on the brake pedal. Do not pump pedal for best results. I hope this helps you.

When applying brakes on 99 Ford Explorer they feel good until just berfore stopping then it feels like a push back on pedal and a bit of chatter like the ABS is coming on. Doesn't feel right. No Problem...


I had the same problem with my 2002 Silverado. The grease seal on the right front wheel bearing went up letting grease build up on sensor . Disconnect ABS sensor wire at wheel one wheel at a time. Abs light on dash will come on but that's ok. drive and stop easy with wire disconnected until brakes feel normal. Then you will know wheel is the problem.

Why are these lights on in my 2008 xl7


These icons are yellow and as such do not generally mean there is immediate danger, but rather to alert you that service is needed when lit. There may be little or no change to the way the car drives or handles when these colored indicators are on (Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, etc.).

Red icons on the other hand indicate a serious condition that requires immediate attention when lit. This usually means stopping and shutting the engine off (Oil, Temperature, Brake, etc.).

The icon to the right of the Tachometer is the "Anti-lock Brake System" (ABS) indicator. This is not the normal state when lit. This means there is a problem with the antilock brakes but your regular brake system is working. You may experience longer stopping time in a "panic stop" due to locking up the brakes.

The Icon above the Odometer indicates the "Traction Control System" (TCS) or "Traction Assist" (TA) is *not* engaged. This is NOT the normal state. The TCS / TA is a secondary function of ABS, so it is not unusual to see these come on at the same time as a result of the same problem.

These systems are in cars made in the last 15 or so years and provide safer starts and stops via computer control of the application of the brakes. You should bring the vehicle to a trusted mechanic or dealer for proper diagnosis and an estimate for repairs. Until then, the vehicle *should* operate as normal, except in cases of slippery roads or emergency / panic stopping.

I hoipe this helps and good luck!

Have the same abs problem with my 1998 silver ado z71 as many have stated before. Mine will lock the back wheels at slow speeds. The abs dash light is on and seems that both front sensors are reading an...


abs systems do not lock on the brakes
they release the brakes when the wheels stop spinning and when the wheels start turning again apply the same brake pressure as before the wheels stopped spinning
check the proportioning valve to the rear brakes to ensure that it is not acting as a one way valve and that is causing the problems
if the compensating port in the master cylinder for the rear wheels is blocked that also will lock the rear brakes

I have a 2000 1.8 turboVW beetle replaced the front calipers and a rear drivers side caliper that appeared to be locked up, bled the brakes all around go to mash on the brakes and the pedal feels real hard...


If you replaced the pads and used metallic pads, they do have a brake-in period. if you do all four at once this can be a bit unnerving when stopping the first few times. If indeed this is what is happening, 2 or 3 40mph panic stops on and unpopulated street should heat them up and solve the problem. Also, if you were under the hood messing around, make sure you didn't knock the vacuum hose to the power brake booster off.

How do I find out if my F250 Super Duty 4x4 has front ABS or just rear ABS?


There will be a wire leading to the abs sensor on the inside of the wheel (dual wire actually usually green and black). So you should see the brake line and a wire. If no wire, no front abs.
