Question about 2005 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

When brakes are applied, the van some times keeps going.

I was slowing down to enter my driveway. I braked, but as I applied the brakes the van still kept going at its speed--it acted as if the van was continuing to move ahead--fighting against the brakes. I put the van in neutral and back in drive and the problem went away. This has happened many times, but very intermittently...and never when I take it back to the dealer.

2011 odyssey parking brake won't hold on inclines

You say it slides? The tires actually stay still and the vehicle moves? That has nothing to do with parking brake the tires are braking lose because they have no grip on the road(to narrow) or the road surface is slick..

My 2011 Sonata cruise control stops working going down steep hills. The set light goes off. I had it set at 50mph but applied brakes when it increased to 70mph. Dealership says they can find nothing...

going down steep hills will all but over ride a cruise control, since the motor is trying to keep the vehicle slowed to what your desired speed that you set , unfortunately this doesn't always work,, as your speed increases, the motor can't keep the speed reduced, when you apply the brakes, the system shuts off, cruise controls were meant to be used pretty much on long flat surfaces with Low inclines ,,

When I apply my brakes at low speeds like parking I hear the ABS

Sounds like you are going into ABS when braking. This usually is for in wintery conditions when you start to slide, your vehicle uses ABS to slow you down and keep the brakes from locking up and skidding out of control. If this is happening under normal circumstances, you have a pretty serious brake problem. First check your brake fluid level at the master cylinder. If it is very low, it is possible to have air in the lines and could explain the problem you are having. In any case, you definately need your brakes and should at least seek some better diagnostics from an auto shop

Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline

Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

Replaced rear brakes and now grinding from rear like brakes dragging and won't go over 10 miles per hour without sounding like rear destroying itself. returned to driveway at slow crawl and can't get to...

if you have rear calipers, they are stuck causing constant pressure even when your not applying brakes..sometimes the rubber hose will cause this same problem. i always change both hoses and calipers

Brake Light

to narrow things down... park the vehicle in the driveway over night... when you move it in the morning ... note the area of the spill on your driveway as it would apply to the car.
Two quick things... what is the level of your brake fluid and what colour and smell was the spill ?

Rear brakes lock up

ABS hydraulics on that unit are a known problem.

The dealer has a set of gauges to install and verify.

Shop around for prices on one, including salvage, then take it to the dealer to verify the concern before you shell out a couple hundred bucks.

Its not a tough replacement if you are handy with a wrench.

If not, leave that one to the pros.
