Sharp left turn lose brakes and abs light comes on

check the angle of the drive way and the speed you approach it as the wheel may loose traction and stop spinning which immediately activates the ABS system to release the brake action on that wheel

Abs for 2001 ford excape

The ABS is controlled from the sensors at the wheels . The sensors signal when the wheel stops turning and the ABS releases the brake pressure to that wheel to allow it to turn again while maintain pressure to the other brakes. It has nothing to do with weather conditions or road conditions-- just wheels turning under brakes Under normal driving and brake applications you will not notice ABS operation as it will not be working. You will only notice the ABS assistance when you are under very heavy brakes and the sensation is a pulsing in the brake pedal under your foot. Run the fault code to check for recorded faults in the ABS or have an accredited brake shop specialist check out your concerns

Hi, I've got a 2001 Z28 where the brake/ABS lights on the dash go on randomly. When they do, if I try to stop, the rear end tends to slide and the ABS isn't working. I've had it to 3 different shops and no...

it is hard to diagnose an ABS problem with out seeing do it for yourself, but let me give it a try. first the reason the rear brakes try to lock when the lights are on is because when those lights come on the ABS computer shuts down the ABS system, so just remember when the lights are on you do not have ABS. Good to know if the roads are slick. If you find out why the rear brakes are trying to lock you will probably find the reason the lights are coming on I would check the rear wheel sensors, also check the posi. track unit in the rear differential it could be that the posi. unit is not releasing going around corners and that could also cause a problem with the ABS system. the way the system works is there is a computer that watches the wheel speed if when you apply the brakes if the computer sees one wheel slow faster then all the other wheels it will release the brake to that wheel. so if the posi. unit is trying to lock whatever happens to one wheel will effect the other wheel. GOOD LUCK. If your local shop has no luck you should probably brake down and go see the dealer.

1995 pontiac bonneville brack system warning light and chime on.

Be aware that if the (BRAKE!) light is on you are probably low on brake fluid and while your brakes are still working properly, there is a possible fluid leak somewhere that is going to causse them to not work at all. When this light is on it is serious. Although the sensor in the master cylinder that tells this light to come on is probably the answer, as they tend to malfunction in your vehicle. Check your brake fluid immediately, and fill it if it is legitimately low.
If the (ABS) brake light is on it is probably an ABS speed sensor in the vehicle that is bad, If the abs light is on have a service center do a diagnostic scan to verify which sensor is bad.

Replaced front brakes ABS light comes on and

The ABS light on means an ABS malfunction. You should be able to have a auto parts store scan your car and find out what code is tripped, for free, but my guess is that one of your front wheel speed sensors is out of whack, or dirty or something.
When the light is on, your normal brakes work fine, but you have no ABS, so your car will take longer to stop in emergency situations.

ABS light would come on and brakes would pulse only when turning left coming to a stop. Otherwise brakes worked fine. Fluid level good. Pads were only half worn but went ahead and replaced pads on all four...

This is your hub assembly that needs to be replaced. My ABS light has been on for a while and I've had this happen before and went away after I replaced it. DEFINITELY try to do it yourself since the part is only $100, to save $400 in labor at a shop.

Abs and brake lights comes on

What you will need to do is have the system scanned for codes. Your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto will scan the vehicle at no cost for you. Write the code numbers down and reply back.
When both lights come on, it is indicating one of the ABS sensing components is not operating properly. Your base brakes will be fine, however the ABS function will not work properly. No danger of base brakes not stopping the vehicle.
My guess at this point would be a wheel speed sensor faulty, but again, only a guess until you get the codes scanned.
Get the codes and let me know.
