Question about 1999 Audi A4

1 Answer

Changed brake pads and fluid. Brake light/ABS light still lit.

Just changed my brake pads, rotors and fluid. Circuit tested the ABS module. Seems fine, but the Brake/ABS service indicator still lit. Can I reset it (like the oil service indicator, and if so, how) or do i have to take it to the dealer?

Go back around and check to make sure you didnt accidentally pinch or cut a brake pad sensor. Also the ABS modules on VAG cars are pretty crappy.

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.

Asb and parking brake dash lights are on


that light is not for the parking brake it is telling you that your truck has a brake problem. With the ABS light on that system is disabled so you are braking with a vehicle that doesn't have it.
1. check fluid low? y check pads and rotors low fluid indicates worn parts, or leaks.
2. have abs codes checked wheel sensors could have failed and rarely the ABS module. Wheel sensors are located near the wheels or in the rear differential

WHY IS MY 2000 S 80 ABS LIGHT COMES ON WHEN I JUST REPLACE THE 4 RORORS AND PADS PLUS ONE CALIPPER I DO NOT GET WHY THE LIGHT IS ON . IT COMES AND GOES.


Few things:
1. Are you absolutely certain that they changed all four rotors, brake pads and the caliper?
2. Can you verify that the brake lines were bled properly? And the fluid is topped up with mfg'd compliant brake fluid.
3. Double check to see that the condition codes are cleared.
4. Is there any discoloration in the brake fluid? (leak or contamination)
Hope it helpz

I changed the brake pads on a 05 equinox


Did you bump the ABS pickup at the wheel hub when you changed the brakes? Or are the wires maybe nicked? The noise is normal and might go away depending on the brake pad type you replaced with. The ABS problem might be caused by you.

Yellow DSC and Brake light on... recently changed brake pads


Abs and dsc are related and with the light on these won't work. It is possible that you need to go back to where the work was done to look this over.
