Its probably a mastercylinder internal bypass meaning theres no pressure going to the wheels its internally loosing pressure which would explain no fluid loss,check to see if theres any moisture at the back or the Master cylinder where it bolts to the brake booster,but from past experiences this would be the problem its unlikley the A.B.S unit has failed

The Brake warning light comes on. I checked the brake fluid level in master cylinder & it was okay. The fluid looked dirty. Please help


Sharon, Check to make sure emergency brake is not on and fully released, try not to drive your vehicle if the red brake warning light is on. Could have air in the system from a small crack in brake line, faulty master cylinder, faulty caliper etc. Have a good tech. check braking system, diagnose and estimate repair.

On my 91 cougar it sat for about 2 months due to a power steering problem I fixed that problem now my abs and brake lights stay on is it possible if I bleed all four brakes they might shut off?


"Is it possible if I bleed all four brakes they might shut off?"

If you bleed the brakes all you will do is remove any air in the brake lines and replace the brake fluid with new fluid. Do this in any event if the brake fluid is 2 yrs old or more.

This will have no affect on the ABS warning light and when the light is displayed the ABS has turned off because there is a problem with the ABS. You will not get it back on until the cause is determined and fixed which may be just a failed wheel speed sensor.

The brake warning has probably been triggered by the same failure that has caused the ABS warning light (since they came on together and bleeding the brakes should make no difference).

If the car sat for 2 months, no doubt the battery went flat. You have not mentioned anything about the battery but if your battery is in poor shape this can trigger warning lights in many cars especially the ABS (and stability control systems).

The best option is to have the vehicle scanned for fault codes that have been generated and there will be one or 2 if these warning lights are displayed. Scanning the ABS for codes will show up one or more issues and you can trace the problem from there. I think you will find the brake warning and ABS warning have been caused by the same fault.

In any event make sure you check the brake fluid level in the car and look for any external leaks of fluid that may have developed. Check the operation of your brakes to ensure they are working normally and that the brake pedal is not slowly dropping to the floor when you continue to apply pressure. Bleed the brakes if the brake fluid is 2 yrs old or more.

ABS light on with warning sound and brakes heavy. Brake pads are new


It sounds like the master cylinder may have failed, check for brake fluid leaks at wheels also vacuum line to the brake booster

ABS warning light ON; brake pedal sinks to floor when applied; total loss of braking.


Your ABS light is on because the system detected a failure in the brake system. Sounds like either your master cylinder is bad or one of your brake lines has ruptured. Usually a master cylinder seal will degrade over time, not insantly. In a dual master cylinder configuration like all newer vehicles, you should still have some braking, even if a front or rear line ruptures. 1st step, check your fluid level.

1995 chevy Monte Carlo the brakes don't work keep lossing brake fluid some under the antilock brake computer abs there are no warning lights except when almost out odds fluid then brake light comes on


You will need to remove ABS valve body, a.k.a. brake computer to address leak, but before doing so I would take a closer look at brake master cylinder which is probably the guilty party. I've been working on cars for 26 years and have never seen an ABS valve body leak. That don't mean it can't be, but I wold be more likely to suspect the master cylinder is leaking, and the fluid is running down the outside of the brake line and dripping off at the ABS valve body. Hope I helped, good luck:)

Abs light stays on and brake light on 98 durango


The regular brake warning light is for the parking brake being applied or the brake fluid is low. You would need to get the abs system scanned for trouble codes to proceed.
