Brake pedal has alot of back pressure and car moves in gear.Have to press real hard to stop.How to check abs pump if has one where or brake booster or master cylinder?Don't know how to trouble shoot or...

The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

My abs light comes on occasionally. everything seems fine, then some times I can't stop as well as I should. It seems that the abs is kicking in & it makes ticking noises in brake pedal area. It also...

There's a service bulliten about that problem with rust build-up on the front hubs pushing the sensors out of posistion [ most common on the pickups in areas that use road salt ], it happens mostly at very low speed. The best way to find out the problem is to have the system scanned.

I have a dodge caravan that has the ABS and the BRAKE light on the pedal is rally hard but it goes away once in a while for like a day and all over again

Dodge used an ABS system for 2 years that didn't have a vacuum booster. Instead it used ABS pressure from the pump motor for the power brakes. This is the system you have. The ABS pump is mounted on top of the transmission. Is the pump running when the pedal is hard to push? Sometimes the pressure sensor in the ABS module will go bad and the pump won't run. You will get a hard pedal and the ABS light and the BRAKE lights will be on. The code in the ABS control module will be LOW BRAKE ACCUMULATOR PRESSURE.

The brake lights came on with abs brake pedel is very rough and doesnt goes down all the way and took it to repair shop and told us it the turbo booster .

go to some on eles and have them scan it. but i thank your abs pump is bad or its brain. also brake booster can cause the pedal to be hard if it is bad you should be able to hear a hissing sound in side the car when you push the pedal

Abs light on all the time and when i go to hit my brakes to slow down i feel like the brake pedal is pushing back hard and then the abs light will flash on and off but the truck wont stop like it should...

So what your saying, is you lost, the last 30 years of technology?
You have no idea what ABS,Check Lights, and the likes are there for?
You have an ABS System failure. Maybe a Wheel Speed Sensor,you can do yourself.
Have to get code first and follow a trouble chart to diagnose.

What is causing the abs fault light to appear.

fluid level sensor is a possiblity, but being your pedal feels odd it could be master cylinder.My suggestion would be to have the codes pulled to narrow it down
