SOURCE: 1996 dodge ram 3500, abs brakes are locking up

is it the front or rear locking up? you really have to have this truck loaded (load valve under bed) before the back brakes come on and i think these are the same as my 1999 2500 where the rear is only abs, and not on the front..dumb design i know, but thats how it is...determining if its rear abs only and which axle is locking up will help pin point the problem...i put 100000 miles on my dodge since i got it in 2001 and i put 8 sets of pads on the front and just changed the rear lining and thats only because the rear wheel cylinder was leaking causing the rear brakes to lock up..

What is the ABS system?


the ABS is anti brake skid which is designed to stop wheel lock up under brakes and allow steering control at all times
it was originally designed for aircraft to stop the under carriage from being ripped from the plane when the wheels (under brakes on landing ) hit a wet patch , snow or ice on the runway
it works by each wheel having a segmented sender that is read by a sensor and this impulse switches on valves in the electric pump in the hydraulic system so that when the wheel stops turning ,brake pressure to that wheel is released momentarily and then reapplied when the wheel turns again
the person using the brake still feels the same brake pressure under the foot and in extreme situations will feel the brake pedal pulsate
Now the ECM continually monitors the ABS system and when fluid sensors, or electronic sensors fall outside set parameters , the ABS light comes on to let you know that there is a problem with the brakes
you should now be having the fault codes read to find the reason for the light and have it repaired as in some systems ,if the repairs are not effected then the vehicle is put into limp mode by the ECM and that reduces the power available and the speed of the vehicle.

The abs light on my 2000 buick lesabre will noy shut off we have changed brake rotors and pads what could the promblem be


The ABS system has nothing to do with replacing the pads and rotors, the abs is anti braking system the system is designed to keep the wheels from locking up when brakes are applied hard, . you will first need to have the abs computer scanned for codes, the computer will pick up a problem in the system and turn off the system and then turn the abs light on and last it stores a code in the computer, the code will tell you what part of the system has failed. the codes or code are very helpful in pinpointing the problem. the abs system contains speed sensors on all four wheel and a anti braking module and computer, the most common reason for a abs code is a bad wheel speed sensor. this is the most common problem seen, the code for example may read something like this poXXXXX right front speed sensors.again start by getting the codes,good day.

My ABS ligth stays on but my brakes work fine.


The ABS system is related to emergency stopping, not normal brake use, where you don't want the tires to lock-up when the brakes are hit very hard. ABS stands for Antilock Brake System. When the ABS light is on, the ABS system is not active. This means the ABS will not be Antilock when you need it. This does not mean you don't have brakes. The brakes you have are normal brakes without the added feature of antilock.

The light is on because a system fault has been detected. Most of the time this is a wheel speed sensor that has failed. Basically the system works by having 4 wheel speed sensors connected to a control unit. The control unit determines how much braking presure each wheel needs according to how much pedal presure you are applying, related to the vehicle speed, and the rotation speed of each wheel. If one wheel is spinning slower than the others that would mean it is locking up (less braking efficientcy) and the control unit then reduces the presure applied to that wheel so it doesn't lock up.

If a wheel speed sensor goes bad the entire system can't function so it shuts down and it is now a regular braking system. This means that it will work and feel fine to you, the operator. But in an emergancy, the ABS will not function and the brakes may lock up which is not as efficient as ABS.

I recommend you get it scanned for codes and find out what is wrong. It is a great safty feature that I think you are better off with, than without.

Some auto parts stores will scan your car for codes for free, like autozone and others. Call around and find that free scan. Then take it to a reputable shop, dealer, or your brother-in-law who is a master mechanic.

Good luck, and be safe!

Hi, I'm from Armenia. Pls, tell me, why while I am driving on a flat road ABS on and brake pedal starts to vibrate


you did not state what kind of car this is. so i will give you a brief explanation of how the ABS system works on most cars, their is a ABS computer that receives input from wheel sensors, (all four whells have a speed sensor ) and as you step on the brake pedal the computer keeps checking the speed sensors to see if any of them stop turning wile braking if this happens the computer thinks that the sensor that just sent the signal that it stopped turning must have locked up so when the computer sees this it takes over the braking of the car and it will release and reapply the brakes about 100 times a second to keep the car from locking the brakes and skidding out of control. what you are feeling is this system coming on line because it thinks a wheel just locked up, the most common problem when this happens is one of the wheel sensors is going bad.the ABS computer has the ability to remember what caused it to do this and if you can get someone to pull the trouble codes from the ABS computer it will tell you witch sensor is causing the problem.

Abs lights stay on, local mechanic said a code comes up for rear speed sensors


The sensors are a cylindrical metal casing with a metal plate sticking out which slides into a slot in the wheel.This measures the wheel speed.When you apply brakes,the sensor tells the computer how fast they are spinning abd then the computer tells the brake actuator to apply release apply release brakes as fast as they can without causing lockup/skidding.There is a sensor on each wheel.It could be one it could be both.
Good luck! Greg If you need further assistance,just reply to this post and I will be notified.

What is abs how it function


ABS is anti-lock braking system. It is a range of four sensors which monitor the braking capability when you apply the brakes. If you are harsh and stamp on the brake pedal there is a risk of the wheels locking up and sliding (screeching from the tires).

The ABS sensors modulate the brake caliper pistons andapply and let go the brakes very quickly. This stops the tires from skidding and you will feel a pulse through the brake pedal as the hydraulic system is forced to release the pedal slightly for a fraction of a second.

As ABS stops your car from skidding it allows you to turn the steering when you are braking hard. This is good news for avoiding accidents. If you lock the wheels on a non ABS car, you continue in the direction of the wheels - unless you release the brakes and reapply quickly (same method as ABS) this is called cadence braking but when involved with a potential accident the last thing on people's minds is to release the brake pedal. Having only owned older cars, cadence braking is one method I've learned, especially from driving in the snow.

I hope this helps you and please vote for me :)

Anti lock brakes working all the time and brakes not working properly


Faulty ABS sensor in the front wheel hub. Inspect the ABS sensor in the front wheel hub, your going to have one in each side so inspect both of them. Common for the sensors to pick up dirt giving faulty signal or no signal at all giving the impression that the wheels are not moving.
Start with the simple and inspect the ABS sensor and wire leads. Replace any worn or damaged parts.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe, you can for the time being. Remove your ABS fuse to keep the ABS from working so you have 100% brake control.
Common to have build up of rust on the sensor, which once removed should fixed the issue.
#PIT3707: Information on the Upcoming Safety Recall 05068 Front Wheel Speed Sensor Corrosion - keywords ABS activation brake campaign sensor speed unwanted - (Sep 1, 2005)
1999-2002 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe
The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
Condition/Concern:

These vehicles may experience unwanted antilock brake system (ABS) activation and increased stopping distances during low-speed brake applications (greater than 3.7 mph but less than 10 mph). This condition does not set any ABS codes nor does it illuminate the ABS warning lamp. This condition is more likely to occur in environmentally corrosive areas, based on field report data from the U. S. and Canada.
To correct this condition, dealers are to remove the wheel speed sensor and thoroughly clean the wheel speed sensor mounting surface on the bearing, apply Zinc-X (rust inhibitor) to the cleaned surface, grease the mounting surface, reinstall the wheel speed sensor, and check the peak-to-peak output voltage to ensure the wheel speed signal is within specifications. These repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.
Approximately 804,000 vehicles are involved. GM is working with its suppliers to obtain the required parts as quickly as possible. Based on the anticipated schedule, we plan to begin notifying customers about this recall in November 2005.
GMVIS information for this recall will not be available until the recall bulletin is released to dealers in November 2005.
Recommendation/Instructions:
Do not attempt any repairs until Campaign 05068 is released.

Abs light and brake light came on wont turn back off


There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. That sensor went bad and replacing it took care of the problem. What caused mine to go bad was apperantly water got into the differential when launching and loading my boat. check to see if gear lube needs to be replaced also.
The answer above is perfectly correct. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins. Good Luck!
I second the second answer :) My ABS light was on, my BRAKE light was on, my CHECK ENGINE light was on, my SPEEDOMETER wouldn't work below 35 mph, then quit working alltogether. Once the speedomenter quit working the odometer and cruise control quit working. I replaced the rear differential mounted speed sensor ($33) and then reset the CHECK ENGINE light by disconnecting the positive battery cable for a couple of minutes. EVERYTHING then worked.
Replace rear differential speed sensor as follows:
a) remove parking brake cable bracket (1/2" socket)
b) remove speed sensor bolt (9/16" deep socket)
c) remove metal speed sensor cover
d) remove speed sensor from rear differential housing (use channel lock pliers, twist gently back and forth while applying upward pressure. Once the speed sensor has a small gap between it and the rear differential housing, insert a flat-blade screwdriver and gently apply upward pressure while gently twisting speed sensor back and forth.
e) disconnect speed sensor from speed sensor cable
f) lubricate new sensor with WD-40, insert into rear differential housing. It will NOT go in all the way by hand, so do NOT force it nor hit it with anything made out of metal.
g) replace metal speed sensor cover
h) Insert speed sensor bolt and tighten LIGHTLY until a small amout of pressure is felt. Tap speed sensor with rubber hammer until it pops into housing. Finish tightening of speed sensor bolt.
i) replace brake cable bracket, replace 1/2" nut and tighten
j) disconnect positive battery cable for 2 minutes, reconnect positive battery cable
h) start vehicle, enjoy,

Problem with my cruise control and ABS light on 03 Explorer


Anti-Lock Control —Vehicles Built After 03/2002 The 3-channel anti-lock brake system consists of the following components:
  • front wheel speed sensors
  • front wheel speed sensor rings
  • hydraulic control unit (HCU)
  • Anti-lock brake control module (ECU)
  • rear wheel speed sensor
  • rear wheel speed sensor rings
  • yellow anti-lock brake warning indicator
The 4-channel anti-lock brake system with traction control and stability assist system consists of the following components:
  • active brake booster with integral solenoid
  • brake booster release switch
  • front wheel speed sensors
  • front wheel speed sensor rings
  • hydraulic control unit (HCU)
  • stability assist module (ECU)
  • stability assist event indicator
  • lateral accelerometer
  • longitudinal accelerometer (4x4)
  • rear wheel speed sensors
  • rear wheel speed sensor rings
  • steering wheel position sensor
  • yaw rate sensor
  • yellow anti-lock brake warning indicator
  • brake pressure transducer
  • traction control switch
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I suspect the abs issue is causing the speed control not to work if it happened at the same time the cruise control stopped working. When the yellow ABS light comes on, it means the ABS is dactivated. You may have a faulty accelerometer which senses acceleration and yaw (side to side lean). I have not seen a bad one but you said it is sensitive to acceleration.
I would unplug it and see what happens. The connector should have a small tab to depress so you can pull the connector out.
Here is where it is:

Accelerometer Removal and Installation
  1. NOTE: The accelerometer is located under the center, rear passenger seat carpet. (I think you have to remove seat for access).
    Cut the carpeting along the perforations.
  1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
  1. Remove the nuts and remove the accelerometer.

Have dealer hook up tester and pull fault codes if you can't find an easy solution.
Some background info
  • A malfunction in the anti-lock brake system will cause the anti-lock brake control module to shut off or inhibit the system. However, normal power-assisted braking remains.
  • Malfunctions are indicated by the yellow ABS warning indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • The anti-lock brake system is self-monitoring. When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the anti-lock brake control module will carry out a preliminary self-check on the anti-lock electrical system indicated by a three-second illumination of the yellow ABS warning indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • During vehicle operation, including normal and anti-lock braking, the anti-lock brake control module monitors all electrical anti-lock functions and some hydraulic operations.
  • Each time the vehicle is driven, as soon as vehicle speed reaches approximately 20 km/h (12mph), the anti-lock brake control module turns on the pump motor for approximately one-half second. At this time, a mechanical noise may be heard. This is a normal function of the self-check by the anti-lock brake control module.
  • Pedal pulsation coupled with noise while braking on loose gravel, bumps, wet or snowy roads is normal and indicates correct functioning of the anti-lock brake system.
  • Warning Lamp Indicator
    The anti-lock brake system (ABS) uses the yellow ABS warning indicator to alert the driver of a malfunctions in the ABS.
    The yellow ABS warning indicator will come on to warn the driver that the ABS has been turned off due to a symptom that exists in the ABS. Normal power assist braking remains but wheels can lock during a panic stop while the yellow ABS warning indicator is illuminated.

    -----------------------------------------
    Please report back, I am curious if that is what it is. Good luck

    ABS


    Sounds like a bad ABS sensor in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.

    hope this helps
