Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

ABS always pumping

A year ago the ABS light kept coming on. I replaced the sensors and it didn't stop the light from intermittently coming on. Now when the light is not on the ABS is pumping almost every time I brake. I don't know if it still a faulty sensor(s) or the pump or something else. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It seems like a ground problem. First check all fuses to see that they have a good contact. Second, verify the battery terminals for good contact. Third verify the charging condition in the alternator battery system., remember shoul be around 14volts with car running.

SOURCE: 3000gt trouble code p0340, p0335

Ive personally done time belt and water pump on a 94 3000gt and this is not a job for a rookie not saying you are but im just letting you know. These motors are ZERO interference motors and if the timing it out by one tooth buhbye valves. So if your not confident in yourself i wouldnt attempted doing this on your own. It is a long job especially in car. If your planning on changing the water pump put a new belt in the timing belt is the leading cause to failure in these engines so put a new belt you can get a kit that has all the pulleys. Now for the tensioner unless the car has lots of miles on it you wont hafta change the tensioner just remember to compress it properly. Other than that the first post was rite cam and crank have nothing to do with the water pump but keep in mind they are located at the front of the motor right where the timing belt/water pump job will be taking place so personally if you have the codes and if it was me doing the job id be doing the sensors at the same time. Also as i said before if the car has lots of miles on it your not that far from pulling the heads off so me id be doing head gasket and valve seals too that way you have a fresh motor thats good for another 100 plus thousand miles. Hope this is helpful

SOURCE: Emergency Brake light comes on intermittently while driving

most cases it would just be a ground wire that is loosing connection and gaining it back. other times it can be that the e-brake needs to be tightened up. i wouldnt worry to much about the e-brake coming on while your driving unless you notice there is a problem when the car is starting to drive. i would look at the whole e-brake system starting with the cables and working my way back to the shoes and drums. maybe all you need to do is just fine tune it a little

My Traxtion and ABS lights come on at same time and noise come from front area of car. What does this mean?


Depending on what car you have. It's as though you have an abs ring/sensor fault, the noise you are hearing is the abs pump working this is because the gap between the abs sensor and the abs ring is to close, which make's the abs control module think that the wheel has locked up. causing it to open the valves in the abs hydro unit to try take away the pressure from the side with the fault.

There's a service bulliten about that problem with rust build-up on the front hubs pushing the sensors out of posistion [ most common on the pickups in areas that use road salt ], it happens mostly at very low speed. The best way to find out the problem is to have the system scanned.

Light of ABS is always on . on my Golf 2001 manual diesel. I have had no problem with ABS but light stays on since 1 year ago, Can I turn it off


Only way to turn it off would be to remove the ABS sensor (bad idea and potentially dangerous) or to replace the brake sensor. The part runs between $40-60 and is relatively easy to install.

My check engine light is on. My mechanic said it was the rear wheel speed sensor. That was replaced the brake light and the ABS lights are still on.


could be that your abs sensor is bad.. or that your brake pump is going out. my bmw has the abs light on and has always had it.. car drives fine for 3 years now :)

ABS WARNING LIGHT ON VOLVO V70 1997


ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been an overvoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.

If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle.
