Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
Just bought a 2007 Dodge ram 1500. Started snowing today and went to lock the brakes up and the abs isnt working correctly. Abs light comes on when starting car then turns off. Tried it in 2wd and 4 wd still get 4 wheel slide. Fuses all good and no abs showing a code was thrown. tires are the stock size, stock rims . 100000 miles. I dont feel any dragging with the brakes while driving . any got any tips or tricks of why these arent working ?
ABS Codes are in that systems module & you
need a scan tool to see them & factory manual
to follow trouble charts to find a problem

SOURCE: rear braking
check if this car has load proportioning valves fitted for the rear brakes and working correctly if it is a rear brake slide.if not check A B S sensors and the A B S control unit.if the A B S light comes on when moving it is a sensor problem.if its on with engine on with car stationeryits almost likely to be A B S unit

you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps

Yes this happened to me. And it is the brakes. Someone probably put it on wrong, or the lugs aren't tight enough. If that isn't it then you need to get tires balanced and rotated because what happens is if you put two new tires on one side and not the other side then the car is off balance and that can cause a lot of issues. It could be related to something else but if this happened as soon as you changed tires then that's the culprit. Hope this helps solve your problem. Put a post up what the problem was so everyone will know. Goodluck!
