What could be the problem when I aply brakes pedal gets real hard where car wont stop when braking coming to a stop brk. light and abs lights on


Hey Joes, 1 problem at a time ,if brake light is coming on that is in the proportion valve ,did you have to push reset button to make light go out,? if the ABS lite is coming on what you can do to check and see if that is the problem is unplug it and try brakes ,it will deactivate ABS and give you normal braking and ABS light will be on ,see if symptyms change , also did you reset ABS sensors to the tone wheel when you replaced rotors ? I don't know what you have and I have seen some cars need a importaint reset procedure for abs to work properly. good luck I hope I gave you some good things to look at that help you.

1995 Ford changed front rotors and everything seems fine, but on stopping the Abs comes on at the last minute. How do you adjust the sensors?


you can not adjust them you can replace them or take them out and file down the rust where the speed sensor sits.

I have a 2000 GMC Sierra. Brake Light and ABS warning light comes on frequently. Sometimes it's there othertimes not. Have replaced the sensors, replaced rotors and pads, cleaned gound on the frame...


I would recommend checking for diagnostic trouble codes in the ABS system. If there is a diagnostic code C0265 set, then you're most likely looking at an ABS computer replacement. This is a common failure on these trucks. GM calls this computer an EBCM, or Electronic Brake Control Module. This is the controller for antilock brakes and is mounted directly to the ABS pump motor assembly. Last time i checked, these things were going for about $900 at the dealer.

I need back rotors on my Jeep. ABS light is on. Is this the cause ?


There are a number of reasons it could be on. Including a bad controller for the ABS, or the sensor not giving the ABS controller a signal.

Front passenger brake is pulsing and there is no abs light on in my 1997 pontiac grand prix.I believe it might be abs sensor but don't know where to find it in wheel assembly.


A front brake pulsing with no ABS light is a rotor that is no longer true i.e warped. Pull off the tire and rotate the rotor. Hold a straight edge (ruler) across the outside of the rotor as your rotating the rotor. You will note that it changes distance on the straight edge / ruler as it rotates. (in out wobble) A good way to test for an out of true rotor is to drive at about 45 miles and hour and really stand on the brakes (do not lock them up) If the steering wheel and or brake pedal pulsate... you most likely have a rotor problem. If your rotor has never been "turned" it is probably time to do so.

The ABS sensor is behind the rotor on the lower control arm pointed outward toward the rotor with a flat button face. You can not see the button face with the rotor installed. If the sensor is bad you will have an ABS light. I think your troubleshooting the wrong problem. i.e rotor vs your current focus of the ABS sensor.

I would like some feed back on the running dynamic on the road brake test.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a 2005 chevy equinox i replace the front rotors and brakes now when you come to a stop the car sounds like the abs system is kicking in


check the connections on the abs, behind the rotor by strut is the connection for the abs if the connector is loose or not properly affixed to the clip it sets off the abs trouble code or low speed saftey usually activates at slow speed under 5 miles an hour the connector and clip are part of the abs circuit--also recheck ur brake pads for binding and brake fluid level --if u get a trouble code have vehicle scanned some auo stores such as auto zone / advanced auto scan for free this will tell u which sensor or unit is causing problem

Abs light


The problem is Volvo brakes, period. Prone to failure and of poor design, with the ABS compounding the problem! Yes, it's a common problem. In the 240/740 pre-cursors to the 940, there were two types of calipers---one good one bad. Check with an independent to see if you can get some different calipers for the front of your 940.

ABS light, light come on goes off and comes back at 5-10mph


have had simmilar problemn with my 1992 licoln towncar do have a solution however will cost hundreds you have a ABS speed sensor out as u kno the problem is you cannot only replace one because they are wire through the axels you have to replace both meaning either both front or both rear in your case if front driversside is faulty you will need to replace both unhooking will only cause light to permantely stay on one suggestion that may help atleast to get an inspection would be to dissconnect sensors to that paticular wheel shut off engine and restart when light is off dissconnect batter for 5 mins then reconnect tghis will reset computer inside possibly giving you enough time to get an inspection befoere computer resets and abs comes back on however it is not guarented to work depends on severit y of damaged sensor and how quickly you module can reset note that this is a temo fix abd sensor will not prevent any stopping or cause danger to braking system it will infact stil engage possibly not on that wheel but that is the problem with an abs as apposed to just a standard anti lock braking system more sensor to break and cost hundreds
