Usually when ABS system has a fault, it is by-passed by default and the braking system will still function. The driver will only notice the difference when sudden braking. Locking up may be due to worn brake pads or brake disc. Both can cause the slave cylinders in the caliper unit to over extend and may make it difficult to retract and release the brake.

SOURCE: rear brakes locking up with slight touch of brake pedal.

Most of the time with the rear brakes locking up the brake drums are warpped. If you remove the rear brake drums and take them to almost any auto parts store (Napa, Checkers ect.) they will turn the drums for about $10 a piece.

After you have the drums turned you will need to readjust the rear brakes.

SOURCE: Ford Escape Breaks

Did you replace them yourself or did you take them to a "qualified brake specialist"? It sounds like your brake lines need to be bled properly. You may also have one or more calipers sticking to cause the vibration.

SOURCE: abs

Rex08, have you checked the bulbs? This truck is rare in that the ABS light will come on when the brake light bulbs go out.

If the lights are on all the time check the adjustment of the switch on the pedal. Don't adjust it too far in, you will have slight brake application while you are driving which is not good.

SOURCE: abs brake warning light comes on and rear brakes remain stuck on

I would bypass abs contraption with new line.(87 dually) abs located under drivers side cab looks very susceptible and is known to fail.I would trust my foot before that old thing.Im rippin it out of my truck & replacing it with new line all the way back.Old lines rusted pretty bad.Better safe than sorry.unplug light bulb or just leave it in .Jersey cant say anything if its 94 or older at inspection.that goes for all the lights.For me,older is better.I dont know what setup you have or if you sold it, you could try replacing it for about 160 at advanced.I hope its not the computer screwin up,thats probably a dealer item.Try unpluging hydraulic unit for shits & giggles.Go over rear brakes again before you start cutting.

SOURCE: brakes feel spongy.when pressed hard goes nearly

Either you did not bleed the brakes properly or they need adjusted. (rear only) Front most likely are disks. If you put pads on the front and spread the caliper pistons, you should pump the brake pedal 10 or 15 times to move the pistons out. Some ABS systems are notoriously hard to bleed.

Can't shift out of park, no brake lights


This is a problem with the brake sensor lockout. Most likely it is out of place or broken and shorting. It is on the brake pedal lever.

2006 ford focus front right tire keeps locking up. can i take out the ABS system?


May not be the ABS, the ABS is meant to do the opposite, it may be that the Brake Caliper has gone bad, apparently is stays closed after releasing break pedal causing wheel to lock up.

ABS light on, flashing 4wd 2005 Mazda Tribute


Even though your anit-lock brake system light comes on, dosen't mean your brakes will not work. All the ABS does, when applying the breaks, it compensates breaking power like pulsating your pads off and on the rotor in which without ABS your doing the same thing manually by pressing n releasing the brake pedal. And usually half the time it's a sensor that goes out and can be checked at your local autozone or auto parts store where they can plug into your car and will display a code that pertains to your ABS problem. Hope this helps.

Brakes won't release


does your model have an abs unit as this can be the fault, some areas when sold did not have this abs unit but with the abs unit it has valves to assist braking. if a piston in the abs has failed it stop it from working and only manual braking is used but this is limited.

What is abs how it function


ABS is anti-lock braking system. It is a range of four sensors which monitor the braking capability when you apply the brakes. If you are harsh and stamp on the brake pedal there is a risk of the wheels locking up and sliding (screeching from the tires).

The ABS sensors modulate the brake caliper pistons andapply and let go the brakes very quickly. This stops the tires from skidding and you will feel a pulse through the brake pedal as the hydraulic system is forced to release the pedal slightly for a fraction of a second.

As ABS stops your car from skidding it allows you to turn the steering when you are braking hard. This is good news for avoiding accidents. If you lock the wheels on a non ABS car, you continue in the direction of the wheels - unless you release the brakes and reapply quickly (same method as ABS) this is called cadence braking but when involved with a potential accident the last thing on people's minds is to release the brake pedal. Having only owned older cars, cadence braking is one method I've learned, especially from driving in the snow.

I hope this helps you and please vote for me :)

Break pedal sometimes vibrates when the breaks are applied. Also some sort of knocking sound coming from the hood when slowing down at low speeds


They have ABS and when you press the pedal hard the pedal vibrates. its the computer doing a pumping action for your. It grabs and releases the breaks so they dont lock up and it allowys you to stear your vehicles while the brakes are firmly pressed.

Abs and traction contol light up


I'd have the brake accumulator checked. Try this. From a cold start, e.g., an overnight stop, release the handbrake (as it also operates the dash berake light), start the engine, and time how long it takes for the brake light on the instrument panel to go out. If it's up near 45 seconds, your accumulator is probably on the way out. They do fail after some years.
