How do i get emerengcy brake pedal off the floor the bell wont stop and rear cable driveing vme nuts truck will drive but bell is getting to me
Many audi and vw models manufactured starting in the later '90s and
continuing to present, use the bosch 5.3 abs controller, which is prone
to catastrophic failure, ostensibly due to defective design. this
module controls multiple brake-related functions including the abs which
is important for winter driving, but the most critical function of this
module is probably the electronic brake force distribution, or ebd.
these vehicles are designed such that if the ebd is inoperative, the
proportion of hydraulic force applied to the rear brakes during
emergency braking is as great as it is during moderate braking effort
when there is minimal transfer of vehicle weight to the front wheels.
the ebd is supposed to adjust the front/rear braking distribution
dynamically according to the measure of the deceleration, so that the
rear wheels will not lock up during emergency braking. if this module
should fail during emergency braking on dry pavement, the rear wheels
could lock up and cause an accident which could easily include
fatalities. this is an expensive repair for owners, costing roughly
$2000, and many owners have probably put off the repair indefinitely.
evidence which can be found through a simple web search, suggests that
the problem is widespread, and that if it has not already led to serious
accidents, it is only a question of time. this problem is genuine, and
vw/audi should be compelled to take immediate corrective action.
