SOURCE: abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

SOURCE: warning light on are trac off, anti-lock, brakes, service engine

You need to have the abs system scanned for codes. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor on one of wheels.

I have a BMW 520i 1992 car .. and here is the problem : it happens when I push the brake pedal .. I feel like something is knocking under my foot .. and sometimes the rear wheels brakes catch unexpectly...


Hi, what you feel is your anti-lock brake actuator pumping the brakes. This is probably due to dirty/dusty or improperly adjusted brake shoes causing the rear brakes to lock. It is also possible that you have a leak in one or both rear brake cylinders. Have your rear brakes checked, cleaned, and adjusted. If you would like to do it yourself, I can provide instructions--just let me know.

Bmw 316ti shuddering when applying brakes


This condition indicates warped rotors. You will need to remove the rotors and have them turned on a brake laythe. Since you will have the calipers off, go ahead and replace the pads...its an inexpensive maintennance item. Good Luck, Hope this is helpful.

Your brake caliper may be partially seized or the pads are seized on the mounting bracket.
