Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck
I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 5.7L hemi sport 4x4 and the abs kicks in all the time when braking and will just all of a sudden cut out causing me to slam on my brakes. The abs light was not on but I disconnected the plug from the computer under the hood so the abs will not engage. Now i have good old fashion brakes which i am fine with except I am trying to sell the truck now and the abs light and brake light is now on because I disconnected it. I have taken it into a shop and they tried all day to figure out whats going on with it but came up with nothing.
It happened when I had to stop really hard one night because someone cut me off but still drove another 30 kms to my house without any problems. The next morning I woke up and the brakes were all messed up pushing against my foot and making noises. I took it in and got new rotors and brakes... apparently i warped my rotors stopping so hard although still have the problem.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix it. I find it strange how it didn't affect it until the next day. I don't want to take it to the dealership because they will have my buy everything under the sun. I'd rather check out if anyone knows anything first. Any suggestion would be great! thank you!
I've found ABS modules to start being problematic, having had the one on my 2001 Tahoe go bad. I finally got it rebuilt by a Company in Russia, Iowa, with a 5 year warranty, and it solved my problem.
They sell their service on E-Bay, and you can find their website there. Go to their website, and they will give you troubleshooting instructions.
It sure sounds like the problems I read about, and somewhat experienced.
