If there is enough wire on both sides to repair I would reconnect the wire with a heat shrinkable **** connector so you can seal out the water. If not you may have to replace either the connector end or the sensor depending on which side of the circuit the brak is on....Hope this helps

After changing front caliper on car how the right way to bleed system


Proper way is to bleed the entire system. IF your master cylinder DID NOT run lut of fluid then you can get by with just bleedign the one caliper you replaced. Otherwise you need to make sure the master cylinder stays full and start at the furthest away wheel, generally the rear right. then do the rear left. then if you have ABS, the abs module. then the front right and finally the front left. DO NOT re-use any brake fluid.

Bleeding procedure: use enough tubing to route the fluid into a suitable container. OPEN the bleed valve and have someone press the brake pedal. While they hold the pedal down, close the valve. Let off the brake pedal and do it as many times as needed to remove all the air. Check the master cylinder often to make sure it has fluid.

Abs and brake lights come on all the time on my 1999 chevy silverado 1500 4 wheel drive


It sounds like a faulty sensor wire on one of the calipers, I'd check the front first because they move around more than the rear. If the brakes have been replaced, sometimes the sensor wires don't get instaaled right and they either don't make contact or they get broken, difficult to put in unless you have experince with the new brake systems.

Abs problems i have a 98 k1500 the front right


Inspect the ABS sensor on the front wheels, make sure that there is no damage to the wire leads and that the ABS sensor is not damaged or touching the speed ring on the front wheel hub. You may be luck and the ABS sensor is dirty, it can be cleaned with a good spray of brake parts cleaner and make sure the ABS is not loose from the mounting bracket on the hub. Good luck and keep me posted.

95 G20 Chevy van: ABS light stays on, pulls right when braking


You actually have two separate problems. The brake pull to the right is indicating the left side brake is not working properly. You will want to remove the left front wheel, collapse the caliper piston and make sure the caliper is floating freely on its mounts.
With the piston collapsed you should be able to slide the caliper inboard and outboard of the rotor. If not, you will want to remove the attachment pins, clean and lubricate the pins. If they are grooved or worn you will have to replace them.
The second issue of the ABS light is indicating the system has detected an electrical sensing or control problem. Take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to scan the vehicle for trouble codes. They will scan it for you at no charge.
Chances are you will find a wheel speed sensor problem at one of the wheels.
Write the codes down and respond back, we can start diagnosing the problem,
Good luck, let me know.

ABS braking


have you check? the master cylinder. sometine when you get the rotors cut they dont come out right because they may be warped or to thin. if you did the job yourself you might have put the calipers in on the wrong side. this happens alot . if your rotors front and rear are fine then switch the calipers to the other side.
