SOURCE: rear brakes lock up

ABS hydraulics on that unit are a known problem.

The dealer has a set of gauges to install and verify.

Shop around for prices on one, including salvage, then take it to the dealer to verify the concern before you shell out a couple hundred bucks.

Its not a tough replacement if you are handy with a wrench.

If not, leave that one to the pros.

SOURCE: My gear shift on my 2007 Chrysler 300C is stuck in

Hi,DO NOT GET AND PAY FOR A TOW TRUCK Inside the shifter a locking arm has the tab broken off which holds the spring. Quick on the spot fix is to undo the two screws under the rubber cover above shifter follow the cable on the left hand side to the connector and apply pressure at the same time you shift. Long term fix no cost at all, remove shifter open and you will see the problem with the spring. The tab breaks of the side and all you need to do is PRE DRILL a hole in the top of the rocker for a self tapper screw to hold the spring, reassemble fixed

If abs go out will i still be able to use my other brakes.


Yes you should be able to disable the ABS but I cannot emphasize this enough.....DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR UNTIL FIXED.

ABS and the normal braking system is the same set of brakes. It is not 2 separate systems. You can disable ABS and that varies between manufacturers as to how to do that. It could be the simple press of a button marked ABS or entering a menu and disabling or it may require sophisticated dealer only equipment.
Your ABS is obviously faulty (or at least one of the sensors is faulty) as it should only operate when it detects a wheel locking up under braking and you should then feel the pulsing through your brake pedal as it disengages and re-engages rapidly to prevent locking up the wheel.
Find out how to disable the ABS and see if that stops the shaking. Do it somewhere safe, not the highway and do it at a slow speed. Best course is to get it looked at by a professional

I have a 2000 Mercedes E430 base sedan. Last week I replaced the brake light switch because it was out and it solved the problem to the point that I can now put my car into gear and drive it, however, as...


Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.


TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.


NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

BRAKES LOCKUP


one of your sensors is out on your ABS system. What will work until you want to fix it is to pull the fuses for the abs( the one from under the hood) and theres one you can pull from the fuse box on the left side on the dashboard. you will not have abs braking but the petal will not get hard and unless you drive in snow its not a ploblem driving without ABS

Gear shift stays in park and abs esp and asr lights on


1) try to use the self diagnose.
2) place ignition swtuch in the start position, the lights coming on
3) engine starts, the brake light sould turn off inmediately. the ABS ligth will illuminate for aprox 6 seconds.
4) test drive the vehicle at speed above 20mph for a few minutes. during the test the both test lights should remain off, if any one of the warninign light utron, take note of the condition.
5) stop the vechicle using the braking pressure.both light should remain offf during the stopping procedure.
60 place the gear selector in to PARK, and observe the warning lights, they should both be off.
God bless you

How can I stop my ABS brakes from occasionally activating even when I come to a gentle stop. I coast to a stop, hit the brake, and the front end feels like it's gonna fall off. The sound it makes is...


You can unplug the ABS, and it will be disabled. Doesn't sound like that's the problem, though. Have your front end checked, brakes, suspension, wheels, CV axles, everything. Before it cripples you on the road.

When braking and almost to a complete stop for some reason the anti lock kicks in. i have to let off and push the pedal again.


Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
Purpose Anti-lock brake systems (ABS) - generally also referred to as anti-lock
systems (ALS) - are designed to prevent the vehicle wheels from locking
as a result of the service brake being applied with too much force, especially
on slippery road surfaces.
The idea is to maintain cornering forces on braked wheels to ensure that
the vehicle or vehicle combination retains its driving stability and manoeuvrability
as far as physically possible. The available power transmission
or grip between tyres and carriageway should also be utilised as
far as possible to minimise the braking distance and maximise vehicle
deceleration.
Why ABS? Although today commercial vehicle brakes are designed to a very high
technical standard, braking on slippery roads often results in potentially
dangerous situations. During full or even partial braking on a slippery
road it may no longer be possible to fully transfer the braking force onto
the road due to the low coefficient of friction (friction coefficient (k)) between
the tyres and the carriageway. The braking force is excessive and
the wheels lock up. Locked wheels no longer provide any grip on the
road and are almost incapable of transferring any cornering forces
(steering and tracking forces). This often has dangerous consequences:
- The vehicle becomes unsteerable
- The vehicle breaks away in spite of countersteering, and starts to
swerve.
- The braking distance is significantly increased
- Tractor-trailer combinations or semitrailer trains may break away or
jackknife.
Load sensing valve influence On dry roads today's load sensing valves (ALB) alone are often capable
of preventing the wheels from locking if the vehicle is unladen; they also
help the driver to effectively grade the braking process on wet road surfaces,
but they are unable to prevent locking as such (no slip monitoring).
In addition, they are unable to counteract any overreactions on the
part of the driver, or any variances in frictional or adhesion coefficients
which may apply to different sides of the vehicle, or indeed to its different
axles (?-split road surfaces).
Benefits of ABS: Only the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
- guarantees stable braking characteristics on all road surfaces.
- maintains steerability and generally reduces the braking distance
- prevents vehicle combinations from jackknifing
- reduces tyre wear.
Limits of ABS Although ABS is an effective safety device, it can not suspend the limits
defined by driving physics. Even a vehicle fitted with ABS will become
uncontrollable if driven too fast around a corner.
So ABS is not a licence for a maladjusted style of driving or failure to observe
the correct safety distance.

ABS Training Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
Why ASR? Increasing the engine output (accelerating) on a slippery road surface
can easily lead to the maximum adhesion on one or all powered wheels
being exceeded causing them to spin, especially if the vehicle is unladen
or partially laden.
Spinning wheels when driving off or accelerating represent a safety risk
just like locked wheel do when braking.
Reasons - Wheels that spin transfer just as little cornering force as locked
wheels.
- They also no longer transfer any tractive power onto the road.
Consequences - Vehicles that do not move or get stuck.
- Vehicles that can no longer be steered, jackknife on uphill uphill
gradients, or swerve in corners.
Benefits of ASR ASR prevents the powered wheel from spinning and provides the following
benefits:
- Tractive power and cornering forces are maintained.
- Stable driving behaviour is ensured when moving off, accelerating
and negotiating corners on slippery roads.
- The indicator lamp (if installed) is used to warn the driver of slippery
road conditions.
- Tyre wear is reduced to a minimum, and the motor vehicle's drive
train protected
- The risk of accidents is further reduced.
ASR and ABS: ASR represents a worthwhile addition to an ABS-controlled braking system.
All that is required to turn ABS control into full ABS/ASR control is
an ECU with the additional ASR function and a few additional components
for controlling the differential brake and the engine. This why ASR
is only available in combination with ABS.
Even a differential lock for off-road use and ASR do not exclude but complement
each other.
Limits of ASR The traction capacity of an all-wheel driven commercial vehicle can not
be achieved by a motor vehicle with only one driving axle - not even with
optimal ASR.

Ford 1997 Exediton got stuck in park 2 times, shaking shifter, it moved back into drive. How or what do i need to do


Possibly...shifters can feel like they are stuck in park when a vehicle is parked on a hill/slope and the parking brake was not applied. All the weight of the vehicle rests on the transmission, which makes it difficault to shift out of park.

ESP ABS LIGHT ON .AS WELL MY BREAK LIGHT FLASHING. AUDI A4 2 LITRE


i have seen this many times on VW passats which are on the same platform. You may need a new abs control unit. if the abs control unit cannot be scanned by a computer, check all fuses. if abs contol unit is needed, there is aftermarket places that can rebuild them, i recommend factory unit.
