ABS sensor fault. This can be tested with a multimeter. There is a pick up sensor at each wheel on the car, usually reading off a castlated ring. Find the plugs for the sensor and set your multimeter to AC (the wiggly symbol) Use your test probes into the wires on the sensor side, and spin the wheel as fast as you can. The multimeter should read 0.2-2.0 volts ac. If nothing, then thats a faulty sensor.
Although i have given you a guide to doing this, it is better taken to a reputable garage with correct tools to have this test carried out.

In my 1998 Buick Lasabre, I backed up yesterday and when I put it in drive and drove about 10 feet the back brakes locked up and now it just pulling the rear end. I have tried multiple times to see if...


Sounds as if the back bracks are so worn the wheel calipers are sticking or some brake part has failed. Tear down rear brakes to see what has happened.

ABS brake noise at every braking; Also sometimes the warning lights(AWD Disabled) comes on while driving and other times the lights don' come on;;AWD still works tho.


Sounds like you need new brake pads , when the pads get worn it triggers the warning replace the brake pads reset the computer this should fix the noise and the warning lights.

2004 nissan maxima...can hear the abs pump while driving and sounds like grinding when braking at low speeds. Is this pump issue or sensor? What causes this to happen?


hi from uk the only thing i would be concerned about at this moment is the grinding when brakes applied ? this sounds very much like your brake pads are very low and most likely worne to the point of damage(grinding metal to rotor contact) is the sound you hear also the abs will sense this and due to unbalance of braking to each wheel abs will operate however i would have thought your car may have low pads warning indicator light system fitted but may not ? may i suggest considering age and possible high milage of your car ? if you have not had pads inspected recently? you do so asap b4 you drive any distance especially at speed ?

While driving home from work my ABS light illumintaed then my 4X4 high light began flashing. What do you think the problem might be?


For some year models of Explorers involved in the Cruise Control recall, there were additional wiring problems caused by the modification of the Cruise Control. These problems included yours and Brake lights working independent of the brakes. Contact a dealer about this SECOND service bulletin.

The above problems are more likely if the 4x4 is showing a light and the vehicle is in 2 wheel drive. The ABS indicator light is usually to be trusted without the Cruise problem. It would not hurt to check the brake pad linings, sometimes the lining shifts and drops down off the metal of the pads. Finally if the ABS light is still showing a problem that you can not find, check the Emergency brake pads inside the rear rotors.

ABS light goes on and off


Sounds like you have loose brake pad linings.
The traction control measures rotational speed between each rear wheel. If your pad lining momentarily causes one wheel to hesitate your trac control will flash. As the ABS detects braking without the brake pedal being pushed, it will flash.
Check your emergency brake pads. They can fall apart inside the drum/rotor combo on the rear. That is where your sensor is for the ABS.

Brack pad change on 2003 volvo s40


It is the same as the older cars.
Just change the pads as usual.
It`s when you come to bleed the brakes that problems arise.

Abs light on as well as brack light on the das


brake pads are the ONLY way to stop you going like 30mph+ when you hit like a wall or person or like another road user & if you do crash YOU will be totally at fault for having an unfit car. The best way to get the lights on your dash to go out is to fit new pads. The lights show that the time when the brakes WILL fail is drawing very near, it is stilll up to you to get the pads changed. You will not get any further warnings from your car prior to not being able to stop at all thus causing endangerment. You will be shocked at just how bad they were when you feel the new pads.

Abs light on


if you know the code for the radio... unhook the battery for about ten minutes to reset the abs warning.... if it comes back on after that there may be another issue.... but make sure you have the code for the radio or it will become unusable.
