1995 Grand Am ABS/braking problem

I have a 1995 grand am and the ABS has recently went out on it. The brakes still function fine, however when travelling at very low speeds (<5mph) the driver side rear dips down when the brake is applied. Is this related to the ABS problem? And if so, is there any way to disconnect the ABS? In other words, is there an ABS fuse that I can disconnect, and where can I find it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

No this is not related to the abs.what is happening is your rear brakes are full of brake dust .so they have to cleaned and adjusted up this will fix the problem thanks for your question..

1992 dodge grand caravan with ABS has a hard brake pedal and hard to stop, it makes funny chatering sound from the hyd control moduel, how can I tell if the modual or the abs motor are bad


A "hard brake pedal" is a sign that the brake booster is not functioning correctly. check vacuum line to booster first, for splits or cracks. if none the master cylinder may be bad.

Abs light stays on in my 97 jeep grand cherokee


The light means there is a problem with the abs pump or one of the sensors for the abs system. Your regular brakes will function normally but while the light is on you have no antilock braking. Abs systems can be fairly complicated, it may be best to take the truck to a reputable repair shop.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo. today while i was checking out the anti freeze i notice the abs light came. the suv was running but was not moving. i dove the suv around after the light came and...


You probably have a bad wheel sensor. With the ABS light on the computer is detecting a malfunction in that system somewhere. Its usually caused by a faulty acuator pump or wheel sensor. This won't affect your brakes neccesarilly, however, with the ABS light on it means your anti-lock brake system is not functioning. This means if you hit your brakes too hard it will allow your wheels to lock up.

Abs light on and trac off light on new front brakes recently installed


First thing I would check if brakes were installed is that the abs wires did not accidentally get disconnected. If that did not occur you will need a scan tool to determine why the abs light came on. It is probably due to a bad wheel speed sensor.The trac light is on because currently your abs is disabled and the traction control requires use of the abs system to function.

When I put my 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix in drive and step on the gas, I hear a short grinding noise and then my ABS and Emergency brake light come on on the dashboard and stay on while I'm driving. What's...


dont know if this will help... but my Windstar had the same issue with the lights... it was just the sensor screwing up or no longer attached properly. as far as the grinding goes... it could be the abs kicking in because of a faulty sensor, but poke your head in and take a look at the brake assembly and make sure your pads are ok and that everything is attached properly.

hope it helps:)

Rear brakes


the abs light has nothing to do with the fluid it is strictly electronic at the pcm. when you open the bleeders are you not getting fluid to come out? This is common remove the bleeder completely from the piston and slowly push trhe pedal and you should get fluid out if not then open the hood and find the line on the abs m.c. and remove it there and see if fluid is available to that line. if so then you may need to replace the line.
