I have a 2004 saturn vue when i apply the brakes my abs comes on

The abs comes on even when braking on dry roads no abs light comes on either


it is the saturn vue all wheel dr 6cyl model

    Check the ABS fuse for corrosion or possibly a wheel speed sensor issue - it's probably an intermittant problem for you?

It sounds like one of your wheel sensors isn't working, and the ABS is thinking that one wheel is locked up, so it's activating ABS.

I have a 2007 Saturn Vue. When it rains my breaks will come on all by themselves, there are no lights that come on (like the ABS or any others).


I would have the steering angle sensor checked. When they go bad, They can reduce speed by apply brakes. If you have had an alignment recently, they should have reset the steering angle. Also have them check the ABS module plug for corrosion.

06 saturn vue Abs light will not go off brakes are good


abs is a sensor not your brake pads =sensor gone bad or debris /corrosion ---wire or connection damaged --or even hub/wheel bearing/ damaged or going bad--- abs sensor is incorporated into hub

Saturn vue 2004 intermittent abs and traction control comes on and after restarting shuts off?


Has this happened after you replaced the sensors for the abs. if so they have to be set at a gap close to the rotor sensor to read correctly. The other thing maybe if the new sensors area slightly different to the original ones the abs might be having trouble identifying them.
The last one maybe, could the new brake pads be causing flexing or pushing against something resulting in this intermittent problem.

Anti-lock system light on


Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
Purpose Anti-lock brake systems (ABS) - generally also referred to as anti-lock
systems (ALS) - are designed to prevent the vehicle wheels from locking
as a result of the service brake being applied with too much force, especially
on slippery road surfaces.
The idea is to maintain cornering forces on braked wheels to ensure that
the vehicle or vehicle combination retains its driving stability and manoeuvrability
as far as physically possible. The available power transmission
or grip between tyres and carriageway should also be utilised as
far as possible to minimise the braking distance and maximise vehicle
deceleration.
Why ABS? Although today commercial vehicle brakes are designed to a very high
technical standard, braking on slippery roads often results in potentially
dangerous situations. During full or even partial braking on a slippery
road it may no longer be possible to fully transfer the braking force onto
the road due to the low coefficient of friction (friction coefficient (k)) between
the tyres and the carriageway. The braking force is excessive and
the wheels lock up. Locked wheels no longer provide any grip on the
road and are almost incapable of transferring any cornering forces
(steering and tracking forces). This often has dangerous consequences:
- The vehicle becomes unsteerable
- The vehicle breaks away in spite of countersteering, and starts to
swerve.
- The braking distance is significantly increased
- Tractor-trailer combinations or semitrailer trains may break away or
jackknife.
Load sensing valve influence On dry roads today's load sensing valves (ALB) alone are often capable
of preventing the wheels from locking if the vehicle is unladen; they also
help the driver to effectively grade the braking process on wet road surfaces,
but they are unable to prevent locking as such (no slip monitoring).
In addition, they are unable to counteract any overreactions on the
part of the driver, or any variances in frictional or adhesion coefficients
which may apply to different sides of the vehicle, or indeed to its different
axles (?-split road surfaces).
Benefits of ABS: Only the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
- guarantees stable braking characteristics on all road surfaces.
- maintains steerability and generally reduces the braking distance
- prevents vehicle combinations from jackknifing
- reduces tyre wear.
Limits of ABS Although ABS is an effective safety device, it can not suspend the limits
defined by driving physics. Even a vehicle fitted with ABS will become
uncontrollable if driven too fast around a corner.
So ABS is not a licence for a maladjusted style of driving or failure to observe
the correct safety distance.

ABS Training Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
Why ASR? Increasing the engine output (accelerating) on a slippery road surface
can easily lead to the maximum adhesion on one or all powered wheels
being exceeded causing them to spin, especially if the vehicle is unladen
or partially laden.
Spinning wheels when driving off or accelerating represent a safety risk
just like locked wheel do when braking.
Reasons - Wheels that spin transfer just as little cornering force as locked
wheels.
- They also no longer transfer any tractive power onto the road.
Consequences - Vehicles that do not move or get stuck.
- Vehicles that can no longer be steered, jackknife on uphill uphill
gradients, or swerve in corners.
Benefits of ASR ASR prevents the powered wheel from spinning and provides the following
benefits:
- Tractive power and cornering forces are maintained.
- Stable driving behaviour is ensured when moving off, accelerating
and negotiating corners on slippery roads.
- The indicator lamp (if installed) is used to warn the driver of slippery
road conditions.
- Tyre wear is reduced to a minimum, and the motor vehicle's drive
train protected
- The risk of accidents is further reduced.
ASR and ABS: ASR represents a worthwhile addition to an ABS-controlled braking system.
All that is required to turn ABS control into full ABS/ASR control is
an ECU with the additional ASR function and a few additional components
for controlling the differential brake and the engine. This why ASR
is only available in combination with ABS.
Even a differential lock for off-road use and ASR do not exclude but complement
each other.
Limits of ASR The traction capacity of an all-wheel driven commercial vehicle can not
be achieved by a motor vehicle with only one driving axle - not even with
optimal ASR.

Brake Lights are not coming on but top bar light does??? I have already checked the fuse and the bulbs and both work. What should I do next??? Please help!!


If the fuse and the bulb works , then check the connection to the of the brake light to the ignition switch ignition switch up to the battery.to your 2004 saturn VUE.

Abs light is on my 2002 saturn vue...scanner showed it has something to do with the right front braking system...any idea what it could be?


the sensors for the ABS are on each wheel, it is a geared wheel which sends pulses to the computer from a magnetic coil in close proximity to the gear.....sometimes debris from the road or old brake lining foul up the gear...that causes the magnet to not put out any pulses. your computer then sends a signal indicating a fault because of no signal condition.....solution.....check and clean debris from ABS gear. if this fails....check for bad or corroded or broken wires from magnet to computer....I mean continuity......also bad grounds cause many different problems in autos...so it's also a good idea to check for bad grounds....good luck

It may just new brakes, pull the ABS fuse and see if the problem still exists, if it does then it's not a ABS problem

Saturn Vue 2004 model


more than likely you have warped brake rotors. or lack of parallelism in the rotors. you can get them machined if there is enough meat left on the rotor or just buy a new set which isn't all that bad for that vehicle since it's a floating rotor. good luck

2004 Saturn Vue Brakes


The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.
