Hi,

There might be few reasons for the same.One of the major problem in these models are faulty rear wheel speed sensor. It could be a base brake concern or a faulty hydralic unit on the ABS module.

I would advise you to take the car to the auto zone and get it scanned for the error codes. Once you would get the codes, that would narrow down the problem so that we could fix it rather than troubleshooting from A to Z.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

88 chevy C1500 dash brakelight flashing rear wheels lockup then release.


The brakelight fuse and the switch on the pedal is only for the brake lights. It should have no effect on the dash brake light. That light is to alert you that a problem exists in your braking system, not the brake lights. I think you will have to pull off the rear drums and investigate why they are locking up. Check for a leaking brake wheel cylinder that may have contaminated the brake shoes, causing them to grab and lock up. Are the shoes in good shape? Also, check the operation of the emergency brake. Maybe it is not releasing fully. The emergency brake can be adjusted on the cables somewhere underneath the truck, probably at the equalizer (where the cable for the emergency brake splits to both sides of the truck). The adjusting nut will have a lock nut tight against it to hold the adjustment. Loosen the lock nut, then turn the adjusting nut one way to loosen the cable, and the other way to tighten up the cable. You might want to loosen it up and see if that has any effect, and then tighten it once you have fixed the problem. The adjustment would be about right when the emergency brake handle or pedal locks up the rear brakes when it is depressed about halfway to nearly fully depressed.
Hope this helps you out, and good luck.

1999 Ford E350 van problem: brake pedal is soft; have replaced master cylinder, rear wheel cylinders, rear brake shoes and drums, front calipers, rotors and discs; have bled master cylinder before...


Good question, on the antilock system is a bleader too and bleade it the same way you bleade the caliper. After all is done adjust the rear brakes, they should have a drag to them.

Dash light is o?n saying ARBS what is ARBS?


Antilock rear brake system, You can have this checked but it wasn't much of a system in 89. Most people I know disable it and ignore the light. your brakes still work just fine

Dash bbk light and rear antiloc light come on , brk fluid was a little low so i topped it off. brks sem to work ok but something does not smell right. I think brks may be overheating but are not grabbing...


If you had a soft pedal brakes may have little life left and calipers could have over extended causing brakes to drag. Take to a shop and have an expert check it out.

1999 f150 anti lock brakes


John, My 99 F150 had an abs light on and I found the right side front wheel sensor wire had fallen off of the inner fender mount and burned the insulation and grounded the wires together, I taped up the wires and tied it up and the light went out. Your ABS module is located directly beneath your air cleaner next to and just above the steering gear box. It is black plastic and silver alumnium. Says Kelsey-Hayes right on and has six brake lines attached to it. As for the rear brake take that drum off again and have someone help by pushing the brake pedal down while the drum is off press lightly and very slowly, verify that the brake cylinder is moving, do not push hard and fast as it will probably blow the pistons out of the cylinder! If is is frozen replace it and bleed and it should be fine. The brake light is probably on for low fluid. Let me know how it goes.

1989 Ford ranger rear antilock light on rear brakes lock up


metal particles on the trigger wheel sensor of the rear differential case, this causes a loose of signal and the light to come on. also a broken tooth on the trigger wheel inside the diff can cause this or a dirty/corroded connection to the sensor from water intrusion.
