There are sensors on the wheels that have very close tolerances to the wheel ring that senses motion. If something was to get stuck in there it could damage the sensor.

Rotors do not cost much Elizabeth. In googling your problem, I came across this article http://autorepair.about.com/od/regularmaintenance/ss/abs_sens_cln.htm

Rear brake noise after brake replacement


probably a dumb question, but if there is a backing plate, did you make sure it isnt bent and hitting the rotor? you never want to sand new rotors, although i dont think it would cause this concern. i would suggest lightly scuffing up the brake pads. this will eliminate any noise caused by the contact of the rotors and pads. if it goes away then you know its a problem with the pads/rotors.

scoring of only the inside rotors would make me think that possibly the caliper slides are frozen up. make sure they move quite freely on the slides. it is not uncommon for brake pads to score rotors though.

but brake noises at low speeds that dont' change when applying light brake pressure are usually some sort of metal or something contacting the rotor.

Jaguar x type 2001 ABS light came on and then the engine Management light came on just after. Car stil drives OK, not sure how to fix the problem?


There is a strong chance that one of the stator rings on the rear driveshaft has broken away. They are located on the end of the rear driveshafts and after time they get corroded and will drop off. The ring is part of the hall effect sensor so when the wheel rotates there is no signal from wich ever side is broken thus throwing up an error.

Easiest way to check is to remove both wheels and look where the driveshaft slides into the hub from the rear and check the condition of the ring wich looks like a ladder. If its not there or sections are missing there is your problem.

There is a kit that you can buy wich changes the end of the shaft rather than the whole driveshaft.

ABS light goes on and off


Sounds like you have loose brake pad linings.
The traction control measures rotational speed between each rear wheel. If your pad lining momentarily causes one wheel to hesitate your trac control will flash. As the ABS detects braking without the brake pedal being pushed, it will flash.
Check your emergency brake pads. They can fall apart inside the drum/rotor combo on the rear. That is where your sensor is for the ABS.

sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.

ABS light on after replacing the front and rear brake pads .


u will need to check the wheel speed sensors behind the brake rotors to see if they got damaged or disconnected during the brake job, as long as the ABS light is on the Anti-lock brake system is disabled, regular braking without the need of ABS will feel fine.

ABS braking


have you check? the master cylinder. sometine when you get the rotors cut they dont come out right because they may be warped or to thin. if you did the job yourself you might have put the calipers in on the wrong side. this happens alot . if your rotors front and rear are fine then switch the calipers to the other side.
