SOURCE: Range Rover 1990 abs pump

Ok, your light WILL go out, and go back to normal once repaired, so don't fret.

Unless the pump was really loud (bad internals), you likely burned up the pressure switch (green thing on end of pump), which can be purchased in LA, USA; or through me, GreenDog Oregon (store name on Ebay US). These go out due to the pump running for an extended peroid of time, overheating the entire assembly, and allowing moisture into the pressure switch (Yes, they do go bad, and I have pictures of the inside of a bad one, full of brown muck). The reason this happens is bacause the nitrogen charge in the ABS accumulator (ball like canister attached to pump) has a limited life-span, and goes bad after about 7 years (Rave 2003). This means that the pump must run more often to accomidate braking, as it has no assist.

So, you can replace the Accumulator, and the pressure switch, and will likely be back in commission, after a proper bleeding, of course (directions for proper bleeding in Rave 2003 -CD available on ebay for appx $5)

Or, you could just replace the entire assy with a nkown good used part, and since the switch on the used part will likely be good, you can then just replace the ABS accumulator. The pressure switch is very hard to find, but I do have a couple of sources, here on the West Coast.

If you need further assistance or need a pressure switch (or parts), contact me through my ebay store, GreenDog Oregon. If you have trouble finding my store, just look for P38 and Classic parts, I'll be near the top of the store listings, as my prices are low, due to the low cost of rovers in the NW.

SOURCE: brake system

If you are loosing fluid but don't know where from. Check the rear brake lines. One may have got pinched by the rear suspension.

SOURCE: 1997 range rover 4.0 brake is tough when depressed and car does

If this is too old for abs, then your caliper pistons may be sticking, or pads are worn and you are already at full length of piston travel. YOu can always try to bleed again.

SOURCE: I'm after the an assembly

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This will just be easy. Once you remove the bolts underneath the dash of the driver's side you can remove the hose fittings then insert the new one and repeat the procedure on reverse order. After installation you will need to bleed the fluid out till there's no air on the fluid line.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1997 range rover with a braking problem. Please help!

You probably can't diagnose it yourself.
Its probably not a wheel sensor, I would guess the pump.
On most vehicles the ABS brake system is separate from the normal hydraulic system. The ABS system uses the other to do its job.
British vehicles are not always like that. My Jag used a power steering assist brake system with no vac booster.
My 97 Range Rover did too.
You will probably need the dealer to scan for trouble codes. It takes a special scanner to do this. Once you have the codes you can start the investigating process.
I doubt the check engine light and the others are the same problem. The ABS and TC are connected.

I Have a Range Rover 97 4.5 HSE. The Brakes were working fine then I was sat in a trafic jam for 2 hours, as I started to move again, the ABS BRAKE and TC lights all came on and the brake pedal goes down...

First thing to do is check the brake fluid and be sure it is full. Next look under the vehicle and make sure you do not have fluid leaking on the ground or on the inside of a tire. The problem may be the booster but make sure there is no leaks in the system before you drive it.

My 1996 Range Rover HSE ABS light went on and the brake pedal goes to the floor. Brakes were working fine prior to this. Once you pump the brakes; they work

are you losing brake fluid? you may just need to bleed the brakes if you bleed them and have the same thing happening, you are going to need a master cylinder, but first check around at all four calipers and around the brake booster and master cyl, for wetness this means theres a leak.

Brakes not engaging immediately.. need to be pumped

check the reservoir immediately. it apprears to me you have a leak. check for fluid on the ground and on the inside of each wheel. if you see no fluid and the reservoir is low, the master brake cylinder could be leaking into the brake vacuum booster.
