I have a 1997 Dodge Dakota who ABS light and Brake

I have a 1997 Dodge Dakota that has its ABS light and Brake light are on constantly. All shoes and pads were changed and brakes work fine. How can I tell if its the booster or the ABS

I tried to disconnect/reconnect the battery thinking it would reset the fault but it has no change. Both lights come on as soon as I hit the brake.

    I checked out brake and parking lights and they work properly. I have read other posts and am pretty sure that its not the rear differential sensor because my speedometer is not affected. I still need to check CV axle. Thanks.

    U need to have the system tested by the dealer for trouble codes

    I found the answer to my problem. The sensor wire to the front passenger wire was chaffed causing a break. The new wire costs 150 bucks. I soldered it myself and sealed it good with shrink wrap and silicone. Works fine now.

When brake light is constantly on it normally means the rear brake light dont work (bulb blown) ABS normally means sensors pushed too far or teeth on abs cv axle could be damaged or bent. check that first.

I'd get your brakes checked out. Check for abs trouble codes. I know some of the national brand auto stores will check po codes for free, not sure about abs codes?

That sounds dangerous to me, get it checked out. Till you get it fixed, set your parking brake when you stop, that should help.

The loud grinding noise may be due to worn pads or brake shoes. I suggest you have all brakes on the vehicle inspected for worn pads, shoes, and possibly worn rotors. The ABS light may indicate uneven brake functioning, so for safty sake, have the brake system checked out.

Changed front pads and rear shoes, now abs light stays on


A common problem with fords. The brake pads and shoes are semi-metalic, and the abs sensor is magnetic. With time and wear from the old pads, and dirts and road grime, All of these things build up on the sensor. Fortunately this is usually a simple fix. If you don't already have this on had, go to you closest parts store and get a can of Brake Cleaner. The cheapest will do just fine. Locate the abs sensor ( usually on the hub assembly ) and spray them off. Be generous with the brake cleaner. By the time you crank your car back up, this light should be gone.

Dodge Dakota overdrive and ABS/brake problem


The problem could be in your differential. If the ABS traction ring has any defects in the teeth, the rear wheel speed sensor will stop registering and disable your ABS.
This may not resolve your transmission concern, but it may answer your ABS/Brake light problem.
