Why does 02 Mazda Tribute front passenger brake keep locking up?


Try bleeding some brake fluid on that side. You may have a blockage. Also check if the rotor is in good condition, it may be warped. Good luck!

2005 Chevy impala brake pedal pulsation with brand new rotors installed


Is your ABS working properly? Under heavy braking the ABS should engage and 'pulse' the brakes on/off. It is normal to feel the brake petal flutter or pulse under your foot.

Under light braking there should be no pulsing as the ABS does not engage and you have changed the rotors and pads.

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.

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 :)

There is a whistling sound underneath the brake pedal after I press the brake on my mazda 2005 tribute


The last poster is absolutely correct. The Brake Booster is leaking engine vaccuum into the vehicle through the firewall. This is a fairly common issue on older Tributes. There is an updated Brake Booster and Gasket available from Mazda. I do suggest replacing both the booster and gasket but just a gasket may do. Good luck.

My 2005 mazda tribute brake lights will not turn off


The stop light switch is sticking. If it's a mechanical one that is operated by the movement of the brake pedal the replace the switch. If a hydraulic one is fitted, remove one wire and see if the stop lights go off. If so then replace the hydraulic switch.

Feels exactly like warped rotors only its not.


Yes, a loose caliper could cause pulsing brake pedal.

I guess it's possible for malfunctioning ABS sensors to cause this problem. If the sensor is sending a false signal that the wheels may be locking, the brakes would start "pumping".
