Question about 2001 Audi S4

1 Answer

1996 Explorer is similar

Dry pavement, light or heavy breaking, the ABS engages no matter what I do. However, I did notice that if I turn the wheel to the left and brake, it doesn't happen. I replaced the left front ABS sensor to no avail. My feelings are that there is something wrong with the ABS computer, but I'm going to do some further research before jumping on that as a solution.

ABS needs to sense that all the wheels are NOT locking up in order to let the normal braking occur. Something is telling the computer that one of the wheels is "locking up" and releasing brake pressure.

It may be a calibration issue. The sensor doesn't know what is considered slow or stop., Yes,your right, a computer thing.

I have a 99 Jeep Gr Cherokee, My turn signals and 4ways are not working, and the 4 wheel drive indicator light on the dash is also not working. What could cause both to go at the same time?


easy fuses blown.
we dont know what 4wd options you have, so cant answer.
if part time 4wd ,do not use it on dry pavement.
its only for ice or offroad, read the operators guide yet?
my 99 is part time, its not AWD, sorry not. stay of dry pavement.
wet means ice, not water. water pavement , NO.
so forget that. and lets fix blinkers.

fuses and haz, forget 4wd.

does not working mean.
  1. dead
  2. stuck on
  3. flashes too fast.

ABS engages without braking


Check all wheel sensors for broken wires, loose connectors or position of sensors in their mounting brackets.

Front wheel is bumpy at low speed. 4x4 stuck?


If the 4wd was engaged on dry pavement you would have a difficult time making a turn because the front tires would be turning at the same time.
If the bump or vibration is felt when you are driving down a straight road I would agree with the ball joint or other suspension theory.
I will note here that Jeep Cherokee came with two different kinds of 4wd, one version can be driven on dry roads when engaged.

Cant tell if my front axles are locking in . the light on the dashboard works . the transfer case locks in its a 1996 ford explorer xlt


considering its winter the best way is to put some thing in front of front tires and try to move forwards if you cant put it in 4 wheel mode and then try it. if you climb over then axles are engaged.
