1997 Honda Accord ABS makes a "grinding" noise when turned on

I have a 97 Honda Accord. Several times a week when the car is first started it was making a horrible grinding noise in the front of the car. I had a friend start the car so I could pinpiont the area where the noise was coming from. It appears to be from the ABS. Actually i really dont know but there is a bunch of metal tubing hooked from this "part" into the Master Brake Slave Cylinder. My Question is what would cause this to make a "grinding" noise? Is there a bad relay maybe that sounds like a bad bearing when it goes out?

Have you had the master cylinders replaced? Mine made this exact noise and they replaced the master cylinder.

Honda Accord metal grinding sound, esp when starting car when cold


A timing belt usually makes a loud squealing noise (like a 'shriek/scream') when it is worn or slipping, not a grinding noise.

A quick check - before you start the car - is to pour some water onto the inside of the belt where it goes around the pulleys. If there's no noise at start up, you know it is the belt at fault (or the metal pulley/s are worn).

There are kits to replace the timing belt (and bearings). Have a look on Ebay:
843results for accord v6 timing belt


If the noise happens before the car moves - it obviously can't be your brakes. When backing up the noise may appear louder simply because your head is turned ..

If the noise is actually coming from a wheel, it possibly could be the backing plate on the brakes - the thin disk behind the brake may be rubbing on the rotor.

However.. a grinding noise ... if it is coming from the front of the engine in the general area of the timing belt be very wary - if a bearing or the belt fails, your engine will be history.

Why not give a mobile mechanic a call? Those guys are usually quite good and a lot cheaper than a workshop

I drive a '97 Honda Accord. Lately, my power locks have been making a loud, drawn out grinding sound when I lock them. What could be the cause of this?


The door lock actuator in the door that is making the sound is starting to fail. Replace the lock actuator for that door will help.

I usually work on domestic cars, but I would think that the starter is not disengaging. You can have it checked at an auto part store, but it has to be out of the car. Will probably need to be replaced.

Grinding sound on front passenger side of 91 honda accord.


Well, if the transmission seems to be okay , The timing belt or chain is most likely the noise based on the age of the vehicle. The tech you took the vehicle to should be able to pin point the noise with stethascope ears.

Make sure the oil level is full.

Good Luck
