Abs light on will make a difference on braking,if its the sensor in that frt bearing assembly thats defect.,your abs light will close and braking system should come back to normal.

There is a noise coming from the front left wheel when the vehicle is in motion. It seems to speed up & slow down with the speed the vehicle is traveling. I can't tell what it is. If it's not brakes or a...


Another problem is the CV universal joint going to the wheel. this is inside a rubber boot to protect the constant velocity universal joint and maybe the boot has been damaged and allowed water/dirt inside. Find a large open parking lot and make a tight figure eight with the steering wheel all the way over and listen to see if the noise is louder. locking the steering wheel hard over turning left and then hard over turning right and if the noise is louder then your CV joint is bad. A squealing scraping noise could be worn out brake pads allowing the small L shaped metal tab to rub on the brake rotor causing the noise too. Look at the pad, the should be very thick riding against the brake rotor. You should be able to see the L bracket and if it is against the brake rotor, new brake pads are needed. A grinding kind of noise that changes its sound when you make small turns like avoiding pot holes could be coming from a bad wheel bearing. Jack that wheel off the ground and then grab the top and bottom of the tire and see if it wiggles on the axel. There should be no play at all if the wheel bearing is good. Regards, Dennis

What could be the problem when I aply brakes pedal gets real hard where car wont stop when braking coming to a stop brk. light and abs lights on


Hey Joes, 1 problem at a time ,if brake light is coming on that is in the proportion valve ,did you have to push reset button to make light go out,? if the ABS lite is coming on what you can do to check and see if that is the problem is unplug it and try brakes ,it will deactivate ABS and give you normal braking and ABS light will be on ,see if symptyms change , also did you reset ABS sensors to the tone wheel when you replaced rotors ? I don't know what you have and I have seen some cars need a importaint reset procedure for abs to work properly. good luck I hope I gave you some good things to look at that help you.

WHY AM I getting vibration at low speeds as i accelerate on my renault megane scenic 2007 1.9cc


Hello friend. Some possible causes ? 1) Wheel not balanced / wheel weight lnocked off. 2) Steering joints worn badly. 3) Brake disc(s) distorted through overheating. 4) Constant Velocity Joint (CV Joint) worn out.
You need to try and locate from WHERE the vibration is coming from, difficult I know while car is moving but it will help to narrow down (front, rear,. left , right ? ) what is wrong. Could save you lots of cash at the Workshop.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, clean the abs sensor by using a contact cleaner. If the problem still persists then the sensor can be faulty, it may have been damaged too during the CV joint replacement. If that's the case, you will have to replace it if cleaning won't do the trick.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Break and abs light on


If your abs and brake light are on, first check to make certain that there is enough fluid in the brake reservoir. Next, you will have to check the abs sensors on each wheel for damage. Generally, the sensors are easily found because they are attached to a wire near your cv joints. If your sensor are ok, then the next probable cause could be a ring(s) on your cv joint(s) has damaged and require replacing the entire cv joint. Also, if your check engine light is on, have the light read for possible codes.

Good Luck

you may have bad CV joints. Each halfshaft has an inner and outer cv joint. One halfshaft going to each front wheel. Check to see if the rubber boots are split and all the grease leaked out.

My honda accord 1992 trasmission makes a bumpreaction when shifting from park to drive


With the hood open:

Put the car in park take off the emergency brake and push the car forward and back looking for a difference in movement of the CV joints where the Axle mates to the CV. I.e.... CV joint travels a short distance before you see any axle movement. Worn CV joint knuckles will cause all kinds of clunking.

If there is no movement between the CV joint and axle when you push the car fwd or back you already know the problem is internal to the transmission.
