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..

Feels like rear end in bouncing or shutter when braking only thru 25 to 20 mph do not feel anything in the brake pedal. only for that 5mph. 2004 Dodge ram 4x4 short wheel base


check brake pads /shoes for lining thickness if drums check for ovality in the drums surface or disc condition
check rear end suspension rubbers and shockys.
check for correct operation of the brake portioning valve as the condition may be from the rear wheels locking up
if it has ABS braking it may be the braking action , a combination of the items to be checked that is causing the problem

I have abs and brake light warning lights on, however, when checked by mechanic the abs brakes are working fine. whats causing light to come on?


FOR ONE THING CHANGE MECHANICS ! HE SHOULD HAVE FIXED THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY HAVE A SERIOUS BRAKE ISSUE ! IF LIGHT IS ON IT WILL NOT PASS INSPECTION ! YOU MAY HAVE AIR IN SYSTEM, NEEDS BLEED ! FLUID COULD BE CONTAMINATED , NEEDS BLEED OUT, REPLACED W/ FRESH FLUID ! ABS REQUIRES THAT THE REAR BRAKE CIRCUIT OPERATES BEFORE THE FRONT BRAKES, THIS PREVENTS SKIDDING, THE PURPOSE OF ABS BRAKES, CORRECT ? MASTER CYLINDER HAS SEALS, CONTAMINATED FLUID AFFECTS SEALS, BRAKE LIGHT WILL STAY ON UNTIL PROBLEM IS RESOLVED !!! REAR BRAKES IF SHOES NEED ADJUSTED, CLOSER TO DRUM ! THIS WILL HELP, BUT BLEEDING OUT ALL BAD FLUID & AIR IN SYSTEM IS PARAMOUNT !!!!!! BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH MAY NEED REPLACED, PROPORTIONING VALVE WHICH SEPARATES FRONT FROM REAR BRAKES , IS OUT OF BALANCE, THE VALVE NEEDS TO BE @ A NEUTRAL OR CENTERED POSITION, COULD BE STUCK TOWARD EITHER BRAKE CIRCUIT, MORE FRONT THAN REAR, UNDERSTAND ? THINK I COVERED YOUR ISSUE, PLEASE RATE MAY ANSWER ! THANKYOU,

Anti-lock system light on


Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
Purpose Anti-lock brake systems (ABS) - generally also referred to as anti-lock
systems (ALS) - are designed to prevent the vehicle wheels from locking
as a result of the service brake being applied with too much force, especially
on slippery road surfaces.
The idea is to maintain cornering forces on braked wheels to ensure that
the vehicle or vehicle combination retains its driving stability and manoeuvrability
as far as physically possible. The available power transmission
or grip between tyres and carriageway should also be utilised as
far as possible to minimise the braking distance and maximise vehicle
deceleration.
Why ABS? Although today commercial vehicle brakes are designed to a very high
technical standard, braking on slippery roads often results in potentially
dangerous situations. During full or even partial braking on a slippery
road it may no longer be possible to fully transfer the braking force onto
the road due to the low coefficient of friction (friction coefficient (k)) between
the tyres and the carriageway. The braking force is excessive and
the wheels lock up. Locked wheels no longer provide any grip on the
road and are almost incapable of transferring any cornering forces
(steering and tracking forces). This often has dangerous consequences:
- The vehicle becomes unsteerable
- The vehicle breaks away in spite of countersteering, and starts to
swerve.
- The braking distance is significantly increased
- Tractor-trailer combinations or semitrailer trains may break away or
jackknife.
Load sensing valve influence On dry roads today's load sensing valves (ALB) alone are often capable
of preventing the wheels from locking if the vehicle is unladen; they also
help the driver to effectively grade the braking process on wet road surfaces,
but they are unable to prevent locking as such (no slip monitoring).
In addition, they are unable to counteract any overreactions on the
part of the driver, or any variances in frictional or adhesion coefficients
which may apply to different sides of the vehicle, or indeed to its different
axles (?-split road surfaces).
Benefits of ABS: Only the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
- guarantees stable braking characteristics on all road surfaces.
- maintains steerability and generally reduces the braking distance
- prevents vehicle combinations from jackknifing
- reduces tyre wear.
Limits of ABS Although ABS is an effective safety device, it can not suspend the limits
defined by driving physics. Even a vehicle fitted with ABS will become
uncontrollable if driven too fast around a corner.
So ABS is not a licence for a maladjusted style of driving or failure to observe
the correct safety distance.
4
ABS Training Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
Why ASR? Increasing the engine output (accelerating) on a slippery road surface
can easily lead to the maximum adhesion on one or all powered wheels
being exceeded causing them to spin, especially if the vehicle is unladen
or partially laden.
Spinning wheels when driving off or accelerating represent a safety risk
just like locked wheel do when braking.
Reasons - Wheels that spin transfer just as little cornering force as locked
wheels.
- They also no longer transfer any tractive power onto the road.
Consequences - Vehicles that do not move or get stuck.
- Vehicles that can no longer be steered, jackknife on uphill uphill
gradients, or swerve in corners.
Benefits of ASR ASR prevents the powered wheel from spinning and provides the following
benefits:
- Tractive power and cornering forces are maintained.
- Stable driving behaviour is ensured when moving off, accelerating
and negotiating corners on slippery roads.
- The indicator lamp (if installed) is used to warn the driver of slippery
road conditions.
- Tyre wear is reduced to a minimum, and the motor vehicle's drive
train protected
- The risk of accidents is further reduced.
ASR and ABS: ASR represents a worthwhile addition to an ABS-controlled braking system.
All that is required to turn ABS control into full ABS/ASR control is
an ECU with the additional ASR function and a few additional components
for controlling the differential brake and the engine. This why ASR
is only available in combination with ABS.
Even a differential lock for off-road use and ASR do not exclude but complement
each other.
Limits of ASR The traction capacity of an all-wheel driven commercial vehicle can not
be achieved by a motor vehicle with only one driving axle - not even with
optimal ASR.

Abs light is on . brakes work just fine and the fluid is full


Hello, lets test that BMW M5 ABS braking system, OK. First, drive down a street with no traffic. Speed up to 30 to 40 MPH. Then slam on your brakes hard, if the brake petal is pulsating and there a noise like clunk,clunk,clunk,clunk noise. Your BMW ABS is working. If not, then the BMW ABS isn't working.


ABS system and what it does to your BMW. All it amount to is it doesn't lock up the braking system. It just applied the brake and release in micro seconds. This keep the vehicle from sliding side ways on wet roads, snowy roads, icy roads or even on dry roads. In other words, it keeps the front of the BMW in a straight line.



If your BMW ABS isn't do this, you'll need to have the ABS braking system serviced. GB...stewbison

1999 4x4 dodge ram abs light &brake light has been on about a week. brake fluid &brakes are good. any suggestions


If you lose the speedometer, replace the rear differential speed sensor on top. If the speedo is ok, then it's your ABS pump/solenoid unit in the engine compartment left rear side. Most of the 99's have only the rear ABS, not front so don't look at the front brakes for the issue.

ABS and brake light on


When the abs light appears,the brakes reset to regular brakes,with out the anti lock,If for sure the brake liners are good,and the rotors,then it is a bad sensor on one of the wheels,a scanner has to be hooked up to find the correct sensor,on witch wheel is the problem.

Front brakes lock up. Rears don't seem to be working


Go to a mechanic and have them do a free OBD check, it may turn out to be a simple sensor fix.
