Check and clean the sensors at each wheel, then check wiring from each sensor

SOURCE: rear antilock brake lite keeps coming on even

Change the sensor that is on top of the rear differential...You probaly can take it out and clean it and disconnect the battery, and test drive, and it might go off

How to reset brake lite on my 2005 X type jaguar?


which brake warning light is on? the xtype does not have pad wear sensors fitted. so i guess you mean the abs light or the handbrake light.more than likely its the abs light and the common problem is the reluctor rings on one or the other of the rear outer constant velocity joints corroded/ fell off get the fault codes out of the abs module to help.

My brake pedal is making like a grinding noise when I stop, the ABS light has come on once or twice but goes off again. The brake pads are fine because ive had them changed. Any ideas welcome


Sounds like you have a dirty or bad Speed sensor (ABS). The griding is actually the ABS pump kicking in because it's getting false readings. Clean or replace the sensor(S) in the front wheel hubs. It is recommended to NOT drive the car until this is fixed. (WHY???) Because even though right now they seem to work, one of these times you will go to hit the brakes, they will become rock hard and you will bot be able to push on the pedal, you will have an accident and could be seriously injured.

Ive just had brake discs and pads fitted,now have noticed once driving over 55mph,service ,stop ,abs and hand brake light comes on.and also have bumping noise once braking,these problems wasnt here before...


Was it by chance rear disc brakes? If so, they may have screwed in the self adjusters too far and locked them. I need more info on what they actually did on your brakes.

Ive just bought my audi a4 S.E 1.8 petrol 1998.. with 164k...when i bought it the abs lightt was on and also the brake warning indicator light comes on and stays on flashing,and at the same time the abs...


as the mot only says the "brakes work"to a certain efficiency,(the tester does NOT check the depth/thickness of the pads),chances are your pads/discs are in need of replacement.the pads have sensors in them for wear depth, so when checking the pads,front AND rear the abs sensors can be cleaned,and if done by a seat/skoda/vw/audi dealer they can put it on the diagnostic computer to give you a definative answer (this is cheaper than guessing) I replace the pads myself but get the car "diagnosed"when any red light shows.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?


The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

Golf mk4 sdi brake light problem??


What colour is this light.
The Golf mk4 sdi certainly should have brake pad wear sensors front and rear and the light on dash for this is orange with a similar symbol to what you describe.
The ABS light is orange with ABS printed on it

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


Its not an electrical problem . . .. . When you change brakes you have to change the brake sensor as well. . . . . It just looks like a piece of wire with a sensor that clips onto the pad . . . . .Normally it is the outerpad. . . I cant tell you on witch sides its on cause it may differ from model to model.

Its not going to be a hazardous to the car the brake light will just keep burning.

If you replace the sensor and t he light does not stop burning it may be that your front brakes are also worn but remember just as at the back there is a sensor at the front.
