Hi,

one of the replacement parts may have been faulty or may not have been put on right. take it back to where it was serviced or if you cant do that start with new rotors and pads in the front only, drive it and see if problem persists, if problem persists put new shoes on the back

SOURCE: brakes

Flexible brake lines are probably balooning out causing pressure not to build up, replace flexible to the calipers.

SOURCE: Fiat Uno Pacer - Brake Booster not assist braking

it could be that the master cylinder is bad or the brake booster is bad also check the vacum hose going to the brake booster if it has a hole in it it will lose pressure and make the engine lose rpms

SOURCE: brake pedal dropping to floor

do u have the antilock brake bleeding tool? if not you will need to have the dealer bleed the brakes, the ABS control valve must be electricaly held open to bleed the brakes there of course is a special tool for this.

SOURCE: abs light on in land rover

I have spent way too much money trying to get the 3 amigos to go out...ABS light, TC light and downhill descent. I have decided to try and ID the wires that go to those particular dash lights and cut them. I am tired of this ****. Landrover told me three different things that may cause this issue and told me to start with the least expensive one first! Go to hell, Landrover. I will NEVER buy another Landrover product. Which wires can I cut?

The loud grinding noise may be due to worn pads or brake shoes. I suggest you have all brakes on the vehicle inspected for worn pads, shoes, and possibly worn rotors. The ABS light may indicate uneven brake functioning, so for safty sake, have the brake system checked out.

My brakes are grinding and even when im not pressing the brake petal i hear a grinding noise..


That's probably why the caliper may be hanging Si the pad or what's left of it will remain in contact rather than retracting.

YEP BAD WHEEL BEARING WILL MAKE A ROARING LIKE NOISE WHILE IN MOTION.BAD WHEEL COULD PUT DRAG ON WHEEL WHICH CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON.YOUR WHEEL BEARING HAS THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR BUILT INTO IT.SO IF WHEEL BEARING BAD THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR PART OF ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON IF WHEEL BEARING BAD.MAKE SURE FRONT BRAKE PADS INSTALLED CORRECTLY IF NOT. YOU WILL GET TERRIBLE WHEEL NOISE ALSO.

Abs brakes chirping noise, when pedal depressed,


worn out brake pads and slightly warped rotors. Most brake pads have small steel tabs that touch the rotor at a 90 degree angle when it is time for replacement. if you keep driving on the worn pads, it will stop chirping but that just means the tabs (also called wear indicators) have broken off and repair is about to get very pricey.

Bearings bad, grinding when I hit the breaks,petal pulsating


when your bearings start going bad two things happen first the ring gear that the abs reads the wheel speed moves to where it doesnt get a reading so that would probly be the abs light and second the flexing in the rotor will tend to colapse the brake piston leaving extra gap between the piston and the brake pad you might be able to confirm this by doing small short pumps and see if the pedal improves and it stops better i suggest replacing the bearings in pairs if you continue to drive the vehicle you run the chance of ruining the calipers hope this helps

When I brake there is a grinding and the petal flutters. I was told it was the sensor for the abs. how do you fix it.


If there is a grinding noise or "feeling" then you have worn your brakes down to the metal of the pads/shoes. Have your brakes serviced, and this will fix them right up.

This is a job that isn't too difficult for a do-it-yourself-er. However, if you continue to drive it this way, you will be forced to replace at least one rotor as well as the brakes. For most cars this isn't very expensive, except for the labor if you don't do it yourself.

I hope this helps.

I have a 1994 ford explorer 2WD with ABS. The truck will drive fine for about 5 miles or so then the front brakes seem to be braking with out pressing the brake petal.


physically remove the tires and inspect the brake pads even wiggle them as well as make sure they are tight and fitted properly also do you hear any kind of grinding ? if so your wheel bearing could be going bad ..

ABS Light


I would not ignore this problem. Some damage has been caused to your braking system, i doubt if is is as simple as resetting the abs sensor. You should have the wheels removed and the suspension and braking systems fully checked over either by yourself or a competent mechanic .as the grinding sound could be a symptom of a serious safety hazard.

Driving on a flat could have buckled the rim or damaged the discs, steering or suspension.
