Jumpy antilock brakes and weird electronics going on

My 1997 Jimmy antilock brakes stated to be very jumpy, they are now unplugged. now I'm having remote door lock problems, and if vehicle isn't started daily, the battery goes dead, we got a new battery but still have the problems One day a neighbor stopped in to tell me the parking lights were on, but the vehicle wasn't running and the lights were off by the switch, another time someone told me the interior light was on,and I had'nt been near it for 3 days. Now to be usable I have to start it every day by remote,(I am handicapped) or the battery is dead

Good day... well first of all i think you have some grounded wirings, secondly i think you have a faulty alternator for you got a new battery still its still tripping and draining your battery, lastly i think you need to see an auto electrician to figure out whats the cause of the problem. faulty auto electrical problem sometimes results to fire, i dont want you to experience that so we just have to prevet it. hope to get your car back to normal condition. have a nice day

I would simply plug the Anti Lock Brake system back in and see if the relay is at fault. Then see if the other faults mey disappear since the circuit is not complete when disconnected beforehand

ABS light on, brake light, transmission erratic and speedometer jumpy?


Sounds like more than one problem, but make sure brake fluid is up first. Then check your tranny fluid after you fill brake fluid. You never want to run low on brake fluid, otherwise you won't have any brakes.

Holden Vectra ZC 2005- 3.2 v6 5 SPEED AUTO eg: rough shifting and jumpy when accelarating or applying brakes ! Has anybody good a possible explantion as to why it's Happening ?


The main problem I think is : bad brake pad ,the brake pad are too thick, and power brake booster may have more vacuum pressure, should rechange a right one , also ,clutch disc may be the problem for its thickness.

I changed the vss and the 4wabs sensers and the wires are good but my speedometer is still jumpy and my abs does not work on my 95 ford bronco but i dont have any codes that i am aware of is it possiable a...


on my 94 i didnt have codes either,but the electric motor failed on the abs due to moisture.the speedometer on mine jumps too,but mine with 220,000 miles it was the gauge cluster,couldnt tell if i was driving 5 miles per hour too slow or too fast.the cruise may be the clock spring behind the steering wheel,but most of the time the horn wouldnt work or the air bag light would be on and beeping

Why is my 1997 Ford Escort steering wheel making a grinding noise when it is turned (it is not power asisted steering)?


There are two bearings in the steering column. One or both may be bad. The most likely problem would be the lower bearing. While someone is turning the steering wheel look under the hood at the bottom of the steering column and see if it is rotating smoothly or kind of jumpy. You might have to place your hand on it to feel if it is smooth or jumpy (make sure the engine is off and the exhaust is not hot).
