    the 1st thing to do is have the dealer test the ABS module for trouble codes, othewise you will be guessing in the dark, the ABS hydraulic control unit is at least $1000.00, so guessing is reallly not a good idea.

You need to put a scanner on the ABS system. See if it can be done for free at Advance Auto or maybe Pep Boys.

The regular brake warning light is for the parking brake being applied or the brake fluid is low. You would need to get the abs system scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

run a fault code reader to reset the abs and trac lights as the trac light uses the same sensor as the abs.. IF the pedal is still soft then there is still air in the brake system. You may have to crack the lines at the master cylinder first and bleed there first then start at the longest line and work back to the shortest

Brakes on 98 durango


I think you have a master cylinder issue. This has nothing to do with your brakes at the wheel. My suggestion would be to have it diagnosed at a chrysler dodge dealership and pay the diagnostic fee to be sure. They will hook up a device called a DRB III and can tell you in a few minutes what exactly the problem is. You are not obligated to service the vehicle there but you will know exactly the problem is. Then you have something to work with when you get prices for the fix. You definetly have a failure somewhere or your pedal would have remained where it has been in the past. If you feel this information has been helpful please leave me good feedback. If I can be of further assistance please email me at 585@snet.net and I will forward you what information I have. If you require a good mechanic I would be glad to find you one free of charge.
