I have a honda c-rv 97 and it produces grinding sound on the rear left wheel. When I jacked the wheel and tried to remove it, rhe rim got stucket with the wheel drum so I used a piece of timber to hit the...


Most likely your rear brake shoes are worn down far beyond the min limits and you now have metal to metal contact, which causes the grinding noise, overheating and poor braking. You most likely will need to replace the drums. The other rear wheel will probably be the same.

Abs light is on while turning wheel left and breaking it grinds is it my wheel bearings


It is probably the brakes. If the pads wear down completely the metal backing plate grinds against the rotor. This also would cause the abs sensor to show a fault. With the wheel jacked up you can check the wheel bearings.

Brake problems...help


Do you have an ABS light on on the dash? Is it a grinding like metal to metal or a growling like an electric motor working? If its metal to metal its time for a brake job, if it's the electric sound then you have an ABS concern. Sounds like an ABS issue with it being intermittent, should get the computer scanned if you have a light on.

The abs light is on in my car and the brakes are terrible what could be the problem was told that my abs modulator was shorting out


The light can be on for many reasons. Brake fluid level. Wheel spin sensor. Worn brake pads (if they have a sensor) Bad pressure sensor When you say terrible what do you mean? Shaking? Squeaking? Sqealing? (metal to metal grinding) The brakes continually pulsate?

As far as shorting out, has your car gone in very high water? If you pull the fuse for the ABS does it stop being terrible? (brakes should work fine without fuse)

No matter the car all hydraulic brakes work the same. The braking system can work without ABS, provided the ABS isn't the problem.

When I hear "shorting out" this means to me something is wrong but the person doesn't know what it is. Actual shorting is rare.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?


The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

My Chevrolet silverado ss abs light came on?


Take the wheel off and check the brake pads, they are probably worn down, and the metal backing on the disc brake pad is rubbing against the rotor.If that is the case, the rotor will need to be replaced, or turned down if it isn't too bad.

sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.
