SOURCE: abs brake problem

I found my solution on the web a few years ago. My 2002 RVS had permanent ABS lights and no ABS.

It was suggested to check the ABS electrical connections at the brake disks . There are quick connects there and I found a corroded connector on the front passenger side. My wife started the RVS and put it in gear. With the brake pedal pressed, I wiggled the connectors and the ABS light went "off and on" right away. I replaced the connector and it never happened again. It is likely 4 years ago.

Worth a try.

SOURCE: stabilize system activates on right turn when braking

Yoho, I beleive you will find a wheel speed sensor fault. As you apply the brake, the ABS unit sees a "0" MPH reading on one of the sensors and assumes the tire is sciding. Therefore, activates the stability system.
Have the vehicle scanned at your favorite shop or go to Auto Zone / Advanced Auto for a free scan. Record the codes.
Let me know.
Regards,

What makes the ABS MOTOR turn on and off . 1996 ford explorer. My ABS MOTOR WORK IF I hot WIRE IT To BATTERY. BUT WON'T WORK normal. ALL BRAKER AN FUSES REPLASED. IT QUIT WORKING AFTER I BLOW A tire


The ABS motor is controlled by the computer. The function is different for 2 wheel vs 4 wheel ABS. My guess is that you have 2 wheel ABS. Look at the write ups by Chris and Helmet. Basically the computer will compare engine speed and transmission speed to wheel rotation during braking. If very different, it will pulse the braking system to avoid skids and most effectively apply braking pressure.

"A SENSOR WAS CHANGED ON MY 2006 PONTIAC TORRENT RECENTLY TO FIX SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT. THEN ABS LIGHT AND BRAKE CAME ON AND STAYED ON. While driving there are no problems with brakes. How should I...


The ABS sensor is dirty or defective. The wire that attaches to the ABS sensor has a loose connection or the wire broke off. It could also be a worn wheel bearing. It is important. When you hit a deep puddle of water with one or more tires, the speed of rotation slows down a lot. The sensor detects this in a one sixtieth of one second to apply the brakes only on the wheels that are spinning faster to prevent the car from swerving and losing control of your car. It can apply the brakes much faster than people. The system maintains proper rotation for each wheel independently from the other wheels. It can apply the brakes to one or more wheels out of four to keep the car going in a straight path. Some ABS sensors are in the hub, so you have to replace the hub assembly with the ABS sensor. You cannot just replace the ABS sensor only if it is in the hub assembly.

2009 Dodge Caliber - The ABS & Brake Light came on as well as the feeling/sensation of the brake being applied very hard for a split second.


take it to an accredited brake specialist shop
I suspect that the brake booster is becoming defective and the small application to the pedal causes excessive booster reaction
the abs section only maintains applied brake fluid pressure as set by the position of the pedal
that is to maintain the pressure as the stopping and start movement of a skidding wheel opens and closes a valve to that wheel /s
if you are on ice that sudden hard braking will cause the wheels to lock and immediately the abs cuts in to allow the wheels to turn and then to allow brake action to be reapplied
if the abs is working under brakes you will get a pulsating feeling under your foot as the fluid pressure is alternation between full on and released by the abs valves

Abs light stays on, but brakes still seem to work ok


The ABS warning light means there is a malfunction in the anti lock system on the brakes. This will not affect the conventional braking system on the car which will continue to operate normally.

The car is safe to drive as long as you recognize that it will now be possible to lock up your wheels under hard braking or when braking in slippery conditions where the tires have poor grip.

The problem with the ABS malfunction is that you no longer have an anti -lock assistance on the brake system so in certain conditions, such as on a wet road, you will be able to lock up the wheels on the car when you brake hard. The anti-lock system identifies and retards lock up (by releasing brake pressure on a wheel or wheels) and allows the wheels to keep turning slowly even when you have full pressure being applied on the brake pedal.

The ABS system relies on sensors and if one or more fails you will get an ABS warning. It could be a faulty or dead sensor but it is impossible to say without testing and inspecting the vehicle.

The ABS has it's own fuse so you can check the fuse box in the car to ensure the fuse has not blown. The fuse location is shown in the car's owner's manual. A blown fuse would trigger a warning.

You should take the car to a competent brake specialist to have it checked and the problem rectified.

It's much safer to have the ABS in operation.

ABS


Sounds like a bad ABS sensor in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.

hope this helps
