SOURCE: bleeding abs brakes

Manual

WARNING: Brake fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. If brake fluid contacts eyes, flush eyes with running water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. If taken internally, drink water and induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.

CAUTION: Do not allow the brake master cylinder reservoir to run dry during the bleeding operation. Keep the brake master cylinder reservoir filled with the specified brake fluid. Never reuse the brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system.

CAUTION: Brake fluid is harmful to painted and plastic surface's. If brake fluid is spilled onto a painted or plastic surface, immediately wash it with water.

NOTE: When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or installation of new components, air can get into the system and cause spongy brake pedal action. This requires bleeding of the hydraulic system after it has been correctly connected. The hydraulic system can be bled manually or with pressure bleeding equipment.

  1. Clean all dirt from and remove the brake master cylinder filler cap and fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with the specified brake fluid.

  2. Place a box end wrench on the RH rear bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH rear bleeder screw and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  3. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  4. Loosen the RH rear bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out. While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 for the LH rear bleeder screw.
  3. Place a box end wrench on the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw, and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  4. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  5. Loosen the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out.
    • While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 7, 8, 9 and 10 for the LH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.

SOURCE: Brakes engaging without pressing the pedal

this is a simple job of adjusting the rod on the end of the servo that pushes the master cylinder .remove master cylinder and with help push the brake pedal down and then screw the end of the shaft in a mm or so .This will cure your problem.

SOURCE: Was there a recall on Ford Windstars 1999-2003 for

The 2001 windstar does not have a recall on the ABS. There is a TSB but this is just a message to help out the repairer, its not a free warranty repair. The only recall you most likely have open is the speed control recall which is not associated with the ABS concerns common to the windstar.

SOURCE: Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT ABS

All fluids I'm sure were checked. They all checked run out(rotor warpage). 2 tires!! That's what gives us technicians a bad name.....bad parts changers! Kids who do nothing more than throw parts at cars until it's fixed or you have no more money! I digress. the problem is going to be a faulty module. There are 3 sensors for wheels speed. There is also a sensor in the front of the master cylinder(open the hood and you can see it) that you need to make sure is not leaking. This is the sensor for the cruise so when you apply the brake, it kicks the cruise off. If no ABS lights are on, the system believes everything is fine. Obviously stock size wheels and tires. Looking at the wiring diagrams only reinforces my diagnosis. Epecially when you say that you took out the fuse. Replace the module. Let me know if you need anything else.

Abs light dose not turn off


If the yellow ABS light is on and the red brake light is off, the vehicle is safe to drive. The ABS system is disabled due to a problem the computer noticed. You will need to take it to a repair facility or dealership to have them connect a scan tool to your computer. From there, they can read the trouble code(s) and tell you what the problem is. Then they can quote you a price for the part/repair. If the ABS and red brake warning lamps are on, do NOT drive the vehicle, but have it towed to a shop. This would indicate a major malfunction of the brake system.

The dust is everywhere inside. The dashboard is always covered...so are the seats. The dust is literally everywhere. When we have gone shopping, by the time we get home the shopping bags are even...


Are the vents open ? It shouldn't be to hard to locate where it's coming from, if your running your A/C then put the setting on interior recirculate not outside air (pulls outside air thru the fan). I could help out more but you didn't state the make model or year of your car.

I have audi a4 and the abs,asr and brake ligths


based on the age of the vehicle most likley the ABS module failed. Only way to know for sure is to get it diagnosed. There is nothing you can do at home without the proper tools. And no way can anyone guess accurately without testing. Codes are needed to proceed.

2005 Chrysler town and country abs light on, but no trouble codes showing. car brakes seem to be fine.


We own a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica (3.8 litre) and currently have the same problem. This has happened at least 2 other times on our vehicle. Our trouble code was for a faulty ABS wheel sensor, and after searching the internet I found A LOT of other Pacifica owners had the same problem. The first time this happened to us, it was covered under the Chrysler warranty. The second time, it cost about $275 to repair. This is something that only a Chrysler / Dodge dealer can diagnose and repair. At first, we went to Firestone and they preceded to replace the brake pads, rotors, flushed the master cylinder and nothing they did seemed to work. Finally, I went to the Chrysler dealer and they immediately diagnosed the problem and fixed it. I am not sure if the computer will actually report a trouble code for the ABS problem or not. I will warn you that even though the brakes seem fine, eventually they WILL fail on you and you will have SIGNIFICANTLY reduced stopping power. Our light went on while we were down the interstate at 70 mph, and let me tell you that was a very scary situation with me, wife and two kids with NO CONTROL over how fast we could stop. Take your vehicle to the dealer and get fixed, it's not worth risking an accident. Good luck!

Ligths of 4x4 are flashing on and off? is this a censor problem or it can be my transmission?


Call your dealer and give them the Vin# of your vehicle. There are still 16 milllion recalls for the cruise control and it can affect the 4x4 and ABS indicators as well as brake lights.
