Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

While driving on the highway, my abs would engage and cause a 'slipping' feeling. At first there was no light on the dashboard but after a couple of hours, it did come on. I pulled over and turned the engine off and th e abs light went off. I started driving, and after a while, it started the 'slipping' feeling again. Abs light does not always come on.

Brakes are important, if you have no mechanical ability seek professional help to resolve this issue. Likely you have defective sensor somewhere in the system.

SOURCE: check engine light on; ABS/Parking Brake light on - 02' Protege 5

If you live in the US, you can take your car to an Auto Zone store and they will read off the diagnostic code that is causing the check engine lamp to come on. Once you have that then you can decide your next course of action.

Hope this is of some help.

These vehicles have a recall on the ABS system for faulty wiring. You may want to check with your local dealer to see if your vehicle is included.

Flashing 4x4 light on dashboard


The truck is telling you that there is a problem with the 4x4 system and the 4x4 should not be available for use. the system is extensive so it can be anything from a wheel speed sensor to a transfer case ring gear. the good news is that if its not a check engine light it shouldn't cause a brake down. i would find a good auto shop and have them use whats called a modis scan tool and find out why the light is on.

Ford windstar. only when i start to drive the car and i press the brakes i hear brake nois and it feel like i,m loosing control then the abs light start blinking after i drive it get better but the abs...


Sounds as if you have a false activation of the ABS system.
If the light does not come on until you are driving then the ABS module is probably seeing a difference in wheel speed from side to side. It could be caused by different size tires,are all your tires the same size and brand? It could be caused by one tire having low tire pressure. It could also be one of the sensor rings esp. on the front has maybe cracked and slipped out of place causing the air gap between the sensor and the ring to be larger than it is suppose to be.The gap between sensor and ring is usually 0.045 of an inch sometimes the ring which is pressed onto the outer CV joint will crack and the ring will slid up the joint slightly away from the sensor.This will decrease the amplitude of the sensor signal and ABS interputs this as a wheel trying to slip or lock up and activates the ABS.When ABS activates it will make a loud pulsing type sound and it will almost feel like it is not going to stop.
