Question about 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

Can i swap the Brake master cylinder over without "reprogramming"

I have a 1999 Landcruiser 100 and the ABS is not working. The wheels lock on heavy braking and the car pulls to the left if I brake heavily too - scary.

I can get new/reconditioned master brake cylinders from between $300-$500 which beats the $2500 quote for a new one from Toyota

Question - does this sound like the brake master cylinder is at fault
AND If i bolt the old one off can i bolt a new one on without TOYOTA computer gear and the need to "program the new one" ?

    Thanks heaps
    Is this a separate part I can replace - well the mechanic. For a lot less than the Whole unit

    lol Ta - I have been to that blokes house to pick up another purchase - my worry is that it is drained of fluid. But for $200 is probably worth the risk.

Honestly sound more like the abs unit, it is the alloy box that the brake lines go into from your master cylinder, this will cause directional braking and awkward braking and DANGEROUS braking, it is more than likely the abs junction box and no the computer will not need program, just disconnect battery for 15 mins while doing the work. hope this has been helpfull

    as it turns out it is all one in the same right now ebay has one 23 mins remaining be quick $195 NO BIDS, AND YES YOU CAN CHANGE WITHOUT RE PROGRAM YOUR COMPUTER. JUST DISCONECT BATTERY FOR 15 MINS

99 caravan 3.3 no abs brakes. I have replaced a bad master cylinder and all 4 rusted brake lines. The ABS brake warning light is not on. The van does not pull to one side.


Something is wrong with your statement
it is a 99 caravan 3.3 no abs , then you are on about abs light pump etc
the abs pump only works when the master cylinder is under pressure and that pressure is suddenly reduced by the sensor reading a locked wheel and a valve is opened to release line pressure to that wheel As soon as that wheel starts to turn, the valve closes
while the wheel is stopped and that valve is open , the abs pump kicks in to maintain line pressure otherwise the brake pedal would go to the floor
master cylinders work through a. abs unit and not because of it so if the master cylinder becomes faulty, the abs pump will not operate until a wheel stops turning as there is no line pressure to stop a wheel turning
the abs light may not be on because there is nothing to operate the system to put it on

Abs light on , replaced calipers , master cylinder , pads , brakes still drag . So replaced master cylinder again , and again , and again . Now I have no brakes . Oh re did pads also again and again


The ABS system utilizes Sensors at the wheels, some form of modulator (the can release each wheel's brake individually) and a control module (could be part of the car's ECU).
If you're just replacing parts randomly, you will drop a lot of money and time and probably won't cure the actual issue.

Brakes are hard to depress causing stopping problem


1: inspect all brake linings first.
no pulling left or right braking?
the car has 100% full manual brakes. if the brake booster fails.
(its only and assist !!! for 50lb small folks)
so does it? it takes more pedal pressure but has 100% full braking.
this is no accident its by design.
make sure none of the brake shoes/pads are soaked in DoT3/4 fluid
or grease or gear oil.
and no brake fluid leaks end to end, this is really #1 on all cars.
look, then look again. even behind and in front of the master cylinder.
look at tires (inside for fluid leaks>)
2: do the booster test. did the vacuum hose to it fall off?
or got pinched, or ?

google brake booster test
if ABS system. get it all checked,
if ABS get the ABS scanned.

if you cant stop correctly,,,,???? , dont drive.
get it fixed.

Is bleed my brake on a 1999 pathfinder systematic?


Yes.There is a system that you need to follow,rule of thumb on a conventional brake system even if this is abs. you want to be farthest way from the brake master cylinder that where you start.top of the brake master cylinder with brake fluid go to the furthest brake cylinder that will be the rear right.have someone pump three times and hold open the wheel cylinder as they are holding fluid will come out they will keep it the pedal to the floor till you close the wheel cylinder and repeat two more time this you will do working you way up to the closest wheel cylinder

ABS light stays on sounds like a abs pump is staying on. Is there a pump for the abs system?


There is no seperate pump. The following lines will give you more details

Braking force and the tendency of the wheels to lock up are affected by a combination of factors such as the friction coefficient of the road surface, and the difference between the vehicle speed and the road wheel speed. The ABS prevents the road wheels from locking up during heavy braking by controlling the vehicle's brake system hydraulic pressure.
During normal braking, as the rotational speed of the wheel falls, no electric current flows from the ECU to the hydraulic unit. The solenoid valve is not energized. The brake master cylinder hydraulic pressure is applied to the brake unit, and the ABS is not involved. However, even though the ABS is passive during normal braking, its control module is constantly monitoring for rapid deceleration of any of the wheels.
If a wheel-speed sensor signals severe wheel deceleration - which means the wheel is likely to lock up - the ECU sends a current to the hydraulic unit. This energizes the solenoid valve. The action of the valve isolates the brake circuit from the master cylinder. This stops the braking pressure at that wheel from rising, and keeps it constant.
If the sensors signal the wheel is still decelerating too rapidly, the ECU sends a larger current to the hydraulic unit. The armature moves even further and opens the valve. It opens a passage from the brake circuit. Brake fluid is sent from the brake circuit back to the master cylinder. Pressure in the brake caliper circuit is reduced so that the wheel is braked less heavily.
If the wheel sensors indicate that lowering the brake pressure is letting the wheel accelerate again, the ECU stops sending current to the hydraulic unit and de-energizes the solenoid valve. This lets the pressure increase, so that the wheel is again decelerated.
This cycle repeats itself about four to six times per second.
It is normal in an ABS for the valves in the hydraulic control unit to keep changing position as they change the brake pressure that’s being applied. These changes in position may cause rapid pulsations to be felt through the brake pedal.

2006 toyota landcruiser brake goes limp, pedal goes soft


Replace your master cylinder. It is leaking out of the back of the master cylinder and into the booster. If you unbolt the master and carefully look into the booster, chances are you will see brake fluid. Replace it, bleed the entire system, and enjoy your truck again.

Abs kicks in at low speed and brakes wont work


CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL MAKE SURE MASTER CYLINDER IT HAS CORRECT AMOUNT OF BRAKE FLUID IN IT.IF YES MASTER CYLINDER IS FAULTY OR AIR IN BRAKE SYSTEM.IF YOU CHECK BRAKE FLUID IN MASTER CYLINDER AND ITS LOW .CHECK FOR LEAKS AT BRAKE CALIPERS SEALS AND BRAKE HOSES. CHECK ALL WHEEL CYLINDER SEALS AND BRAKE HOSES AND ALL BRAKE LINES.

What is a abs motor 96 explorer


It is the electric motor that is intgrated into the ABS(Anti-lock Brake System). This motor is activated to supply brake fluid pressure to the correct wheels during a skid or brake lock-up so the master cylinder can be active and still let brake pressure be released to the wheels that are skidding. This motor is commonly replaced as a unit with the brake controller assembly.

Hope this helps.
