Remove brake pads..front. Deglaze discs and pads and use created on the back of the pads.
Discs must be grease free.
When installed and sensor fitted, ensure sliders are free before pumping brake pedal a few times.
Road test and remember to bedcin brakes again for 500 miles

SOURCE: Range Rover 1990 abs pump

Ok, your light WILL go out, and go back to normal once repaired, so don't fret.

Unless the pump was really loud (bad internals), you likely burned up the pressure switch (green thing on end of pump), which can be purchased in LA, USA; or through me, GreenDog Oregon (store name on Ebay US). These go out due to the pump running for an extended peroid of time, overheating the entire assembly, and allowing moisture into the pressure switch (Yes, they do go bad, and I have pictures of the inside of a bad one, full of brown muck). The reason this happens is bacause the nitrogen charge in the ABS accumulator (ball like canister attached to pump) has a limited life-span, and goes bad after about 7 years (Rave 2003). This means that the pump must run more often to accomidate braking, as it has no assist.

So, you can replace the Accumulator, and the pressure switch, and will likely be back in commission, after a proper bleeding, of course (directions for proper bleeding in Rave 2003 -CD available on ebay for appx $5)

Or, you could just replace the entire assy with a nkown good used part, and since the switch on the used part will likely be good, you can then just replace the ABS accumulator. The pressure switch is very hard to find, but I do have a couple of sources, here on the West Coast.

If you need further assistance or need a pressure switch (or parts), contact me through my ebay store, GreenDog Oregon. If you have trouble finding my store, just look for P38 and Classic parts, I'll be near the top of the store listings, as my prices are low, due to the low cost of rovers in the NW.

SOURCE: what wrong?

Hi Axer,

The Range Rovers have permanently engaged Four Wheel Drive. If the tires are different sizes, they're spinning at different rates. Or trying to.

If you were off-road, it wouldn't matter too much, but on paved road, where the tires tend to grip not slip, these different rates subject a locked drive train to tremendous stress. This can bind up the gearing in the transfer case. Hopefully after only ten minutes, no permanent damage was done.

You can relieve this stress by jacking one end completely off the ground. Front or back. As the tires lose their grip on the road, you should see them spin slightly. That's good news. Once released you should be able to move again.

While it's in the air, you should probably put the original size tires back on. So choose which end to jack accordingly.

Comment me back to let me know how it goes.
Good luck

Mike

If you are loosing fluid but don't know where from. Check the rear brake lines. One may have got pinched by the rear suspension.

SOURCE: Programming a used 2005 Range Rover key FOB

Unfortunately I believe that will require a trip to the dealer, and a hefty price tag to go with it. Most dealers refuse to let anyone else handle their security systems. And most keys have the alarm keypad built in making it even more dealer specific. I wish I could give better news.

FRONT WHEEL SQUEAKS IN COLD WEATHER BUT SQUEAK DISAPPEARS WHEN CAR HAS BEEN DRIVING FOR 10 MINS. JUST HAD NEW BRAKES 8 MONTH AGO?


OK, this unfortunately is a comon problem and one that I try to remedy when I put new brakes onto my customers cars.........you see the edges of the brake pads are sahrp, and they are "designed" to crumble away as the pad wears, but if you purchase hard-compound brakes, which last longer I might add, this material doesnt break away and you get squeaking.......

What needs to be done is "chamfering" of the pads...which means they need to be removed and the edges are sanded/grinded away so the sharp 90 degree angles are 45 degree angles...this is the best solution that I have found.....

the red brake light tells you you are low on fluid or that your parking brake is engaged....the abs light tells you your anti lock braking system is malfunctioning. get the car up to 40mph and SLAM on the brake pedal. the pedal should pulsate and the wheels should as well. if the wheels lock up and you slide to a stop, your antilockbrake system is malfunctioning and you should have a certified mechanic check it out......tires plus and midas both do free brake inspections.......

1997 range rover 4.0 brake is tough when depressed and car does


If this is too old for abs, then your caliper pistons may be sticking, or pads are worn and you are already at full length of piston travel. YOu can always try to bleed again.

Range Rover 2006 brake fluid flushing (when?)


brake fluid should be changed every time you change the brake pad. Brake fluid is not the same as hydraulic fluid, which don't contain alcohol, which attract moisture and dirt.
with that say, I don't think too many people really change the brake fluid, not till the brake stop working.
