Abs light on , replaced calipers , master cylinder , pads , brakes still drag . So replaced master cylinder again , and again , and again . Now I have no brakes . Oh re did pads also again and again


The ABS system utilizes Sensors at the wheels, some form of modulator (the can release each wheel's brake individually) and a control module (could be part of the car's ECU).
If you're just replacing parts randomly, you will drop a lot of money and time and probably won't cure the actual issue.

I have a 2001 dewoo leganza that the abs light stays on i have change all of the brake pads on it but it still stays on even try to pull the 60 amp fuse but when i pulled it the light still stays on


although the ABS uses the brake system it functions independently and is comprised of mostly electrical components. Worn brake pads will not effect the abs systems function.

What you need to do is have the ABS system scanned for codes. This will give you a much clearer idea of the direction to go in order to solve the problem. Since the light comes on and stay on after you start the vehicle the ABS system has a failure in its self check. Common causes of this are bad wheel speed sensors but there are numerous other possibilities.

If you have an ohm meter you can check the resistance of all the wheel speed sensors. if one is not simular to the others than that would be a good place to start.

I replaced the hub bearing assembly on drivers side twice and the light stayed on and the brakes worked fine. It was the wires (visible just above the tire on the frame) that rubbed against the frame that had shorted out. It was simply repaired and clip-stripped up out of the way. The light has been off every since then.

I relaced all brake pads on 2003 buick bleed brakes very little air my brake peddle still spungy and anti brake light stays on


you must re-bleed the system properly, especially the back brakes. Bring your vehicle to a local autozone to reset the ABS light or check for an ABS fault code and post it on fixya!!

I just replaced the front brake pads on our 2006 Scion. I did NOT remove the whole assembly as the roters did not need replacing or turning. I removed the center roter assembly, but not the frame around...


To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Brake pads to the caliper mounting
    • Pin boots, sleeve boots and brake pads. Tighten the slide pins to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
    • Wheels
Did you tighten to only 25 ft.lbs.? It's not a lot so I hope you didn't smoke it down!

The light ABS is on aND THERE IS A NOICE ON THE LEFT FRONT WHEEL


These definitely sound related. Need to inspect to see if it's something loose (like a wheel sensor) or the brake pads need replacing, etc. etc...

ABS and ASC warning lights stay on 2000 530d


Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car
