Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

2000 Dodge Durango 5.2L RWAL ABS

ABS and Blake lights come on while sitting at red lights and the brake pedal seems to slowly lose pressure. A code 78 comes on the scan tool at the repair station, but it is so vague. I have replaced almost everything on the brake system except for the Hydraulic Control Unit and the rear speed sensor. I don't think it is the sensor, due to the speedometer working all the time. The lights did go away for a week or two after bleeding the system, but now it is back again. Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: bleeding abs brakes

Manual

WARNING: Brake fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. If brake fluid contacts eyes, flush eyes with running water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. If taken internally, drink water and induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.

CAUTION: Do not allow the brake master cylinder reservoir to run dry during the bleeding operation. Keep the brake master cylinder reservoir filled with the specified brake fluid. Never reuse the brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system.

CAUTION: Brake fluid is harmful to painted and plastic surface's. If brake fluid is spilled onto a painted or plastic surface, immediately wash it with water.

NOTE: When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or installation of new components, air can get into the system and cause spongy brake pedal action. This requires bleeding of the hydraulic system after it has been correctly connected. The hydraulic system can be bled manually or with pressure bleeding equipment.

  1. Clean all dirt from and remove the brake master cylinder filler cap and fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with the specified brake fluid.

  2. Place a box end wrench on the RH rear bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH rear bleeder screw and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  3. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  4. Loosen the RH rear bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out. While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 for the LH rear bleeder screw.
  3. Place a box end wrench on the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw, and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  4. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  5. Loosen the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out.
    • While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 7, 8, 9 and 10 for the LH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.

Hi,
The problem is the solonoids inside the modulator are stuck, all you need to do is!!! Clear the code, than drive car while no abs light is on than lock the car a few times on wet road.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge ram 3500, abs brakes are locking up

is it the front or rear locking up? you really have to have this truck loaded (load valve under bed) before the back brakes come on and i think these are the same as my 1999 2500 where the rear is only abs, and not on the front..dumb design i know, but thats how it is...determining if its rear abs only and which axle is locking up will help pin point the problem...i put 100000 miles on my dodge since i got it in 2001 and i put 8 sets of pads on the front and just changed the rear lining and thats only because the rear wheel cylinder was leaking causing the rear brakes to lock up..

SOURCE: P0573 code on a 2005 Dodge ram hemi, replace speed

P0573 is for your brake switch stuck. It means you either have a bad brake switch, or a bad wire.

2000 dodge durango abs and brake ligth comes on after driving for a minute


The brake and abs light come on if a problem is detected. When the abs light is on the abs is NOT working. You need to pull the codes from the ecm to detect the problem

How do you fix the abs brakes in a 98 dodge durango?


Firast you need to have the ABS control module scanned for the fault code that is set when the light is on, then work from that fault code.

I have a dodge caravan that has the ABS and the BRAKE light on the pedal is rally hard but it goes away once in a while for like a day and all over again


Dodge used an ABS system for 2 years that didn't have a vacuum booster. Instead it used ABS pressure from the pump motor for the power brakes. This is the system you have. The ABS pump is mounted on top of the transmission. Is the pump running when the pedal is hard to push? Sometimes the pressure sensor in the ABS module will go bad and the pump won't run. You will get a hard pedal and the ABS light and the BRAKE lights will be on. The code in the ABS control module will be LOW BRAKE ACCUMULATOR PRESSURE.

ABS / BRAKE LIGHT


just a thought but, disconnect the battery for 10 to 15 minutes to reset the memory. You might have a computer that is not resetting.

Also, even after resetting you might need to drive it to "force computer to recognize the faults are cleared.

I have a 1989 s-10.The parking brake light blinks six times,pauses then flashes again.I was wondering what trouble code that would be???Thanks.


RWAL Fault codes
Codes for Dodge RWAL, Ford RABS and GM RWAL applications are similar but have a few differences:
  1. Should not occur (replace the controller if it does)
  2. Open isolation valve circuit or defective ABS module
  3. Open dump valve circuit or defective ABS module
  4. Grounded or closed RABS or RWAL valve switch
  5. Excessive actuations of dump valve during ABS braking
  6. Erratic speed sensor signal
  7. Shorted isolation valve or defective ABS module
  8. Shorter dump valve or defective ABS module
  9. High resistance or open speed sensor circuit (resistance should be 1000 to 2500 ohms)
  10. Low speed sensor resistance (Dodge & Ford only)
  11. Open speed sensor circuit (GM only)
  12. Stop lamp switch circuit (Dodge & Ford)
  13. ABS module speed processor (Dodge & Ford only)
  14. ABS module program (Dodge & Ford only)
  15. ABS module RAM memory failure (Dodge & Ford)
To manually clear a stored fault code on GM and some Dodge trucks with RWAL, remove the ABS fuse or disconnect the battery for 5 seconds. Ford RABS codes will automatically clear when the ignition is turned to the off position.
