This problem is caused by a erratic signal from one of the wheel speed sensors, they are magnet pickup sensors, either the trigger wheel the sensor reads on the hub is broken or the sensor is defective or the sensor has metal filings on it, the individual ABS wheel speed sensors are located in the hub behind the brake rotor, to locate them just follow the wiring harness down to them from wheel well, pull them out and clean them, the are held in by a single bolt, spray with WD40 before trying to remove 1st and let soak, if the sensor have no metal filings on them, u will need the dealer or a well equipped brake repair center test the ABS/traction system to see which sensor is at fault, it will set a fault code. the sensors are $100.00 each and u have 4 so guessing is a bad idea. here is a picture of the sensor and harness asssmbly from www.rockauto.com.after having new rotors,pads and - 8fd3ea0.jpg

We have new brake pads and new rotors, now abs light is on, Why


Interesting question. The ABS magnetic sensors on each wheel can get gummed up with dirt, rust and brake dust. Perhaps the brake shop did not clean the sensor properly, or worse, may have damaged one or more when the rotors are replaced. The sensor also has a tough wire up to the chassis. If this is damaged or disconnected, the ABS light will turn on.

Take it back to the shop and have them check.

When my car is going fast in i hit the brakes my car shake like it doesn't want to stop. what is it.


It sounds like you have a warped rotor. when you brake it shakes the wheel and throws the abs sensor at the wheel assembly and turns your abs on because it thinks that you are locking them up. Replace rotors and pads and it will solve the issue

id check your caliper to see if the piston is compressing all the way if not check your fluid it should be clean not brown or if you have been through large amounts of water if it has gotten into the brake system and check your bleeder valve to check if it has rotted or come lose or if you have a break in the lines or air, most likely your caliper is failing to compress.

When i hit my brakes the front driverside feels like its grabbing almost like a grind,then sometimes the abs light comes on and it doesnt do it at all can anyone help?


Sounds like you need to get your rotors turned. Or you need new brake pads, or BOTH. But i can almost promise you that is your problem. Hope this helps, James Booth

When applying the brakes, the whole car shimmys. replaced rear rotors , turned front rotors , and replaced all the pads


I think you should get the Tierod ends checked. When you get a Front-end alignment, the mechanic will check them. Although you turned the front Rotors, when you start Braking the front tires can wander differently than when they freewheel.

Sometimes you can get a rust problem on the Rotors that were just made shiny. Moisture on the pads imprints a rust blotch on the Rotor and they grab at the rust until the rust wears down. Then they are ok.

When the rear Rotors were replaced check your bill and see if the Emergency brake shoes were changed. The E brakes should have been adjusted when the Rotors were replaced. The Shimmy you describe can also be the ABS working. The ABS is a pulsating Brake action.

Get your front-end checked first, then as the mechanic road tests it when the Alignment is complete, he can judge the brakes.,

ABS light came on after changing pads and rotors


The ABS reluctor ring is mounted on the back of the rotor by three fasteners. They do NOT come with the new rotor. IF you did not transfer that part, there would be nothing for the sensor to get it's signal or (sine wve) from. That would set codes. Did you transfer abs ring along with the hub when putting on the new rotors ?

Rear brake noise after brake replacement


probably a dumb question, but if there is a backing plate, did you make sure it isnt bent and hitting the rotor? you never want to sand new rotors, although i dont think it would cause this concern. i would suggest lightly scuffing up the brake pads. this will eliminate any noise caused by the contact of the rotors and pads. if it goes away then you know its a problem with the pads/rotors.

scoring of only the inside rotors would make me think that possibly the caliper slides are frozen up. make sure they move quite freely on the slides. it is not uncommon for brake pads to score rotors though.

but brake noises at low speeds that dont' change when applying light brake pressure are usually some sort of metal or something contacting the rotor.

Abs brake light comes on replaced it but couple days same proplem it goes off when turn motor off but comes back on if hit a bump


What did you replace?If it where a sensor,make sure you changed the right sensor,also wheel bearings gone bad will cause this,also bad rotors,and brake pads.If the vehicle has problems stopping like the computer thinks ,then the light will come on,but if hitting bumps causes the light to come on,then the wheel bearing or rotor,or brake liners(pads)could be the problem.I hope this was some help.

Probably. Check your brake rotor and caliper. The brake pads may be worn down enough to make that noise. Brake pads are around $29 bucks for a set. And rotors are about the same each at Autozone. I just did mine recently and I am VERY happy now that my 99 Jeep cherokee stops right and doesn't make the rubbing noise when cornering, and the squealing noise when stopping. There you go! Happy Motoring!
