When appling brakes i sometimes hear grinding and ticking noise and abs light is on


A grinding noise is usually an indication that the brake pads are worn out. You may also have a defective wheel bearing causing this noise and in turn can cause the ABS light to come on due to poor sensor contact. Have the brakes and bearings inspected soon to avoid unnecessary costly repairs.

.x5 sometimes my 4x4 light comes on with the abs


Seems a related electronics issue and it is more likely a ABS failure. It seems to act on the brakes and thus can cause the pads to grind. It will be best to have all the wheel sensors checked before we need to suspect the ABS unit.
It is best to take consensus with BMW before you can remove any part.

You had to leave something out, or you got a pad in backwards. The right front right,? it is not grabbing, just grinding, should be easy enough to spot, take the wheel off again and find the problem, Changing the pads should have nothing to do with the abs,. I don't know why the light would be coming on unless you have too much movement for the abs to work, or not enough. Check it out, hope this helps.

My SRS, ABS, and Brake lights stay on. Sometimes the Brake light will go out but sometimes it will stay on. The SRS and ABS lights are always on. The car seems to be driving okay.


brake light could be a sensor wire or the pads are worn out ,the srs light could be the wiring connections under the front seats ,the connectors need a clean or rubbish under the seat has dislodged them.Abs light coming on could be caused by the low brake pads but its doubtful more like one of the metal toothed rings is loose on the drive shaft ,also could be low on brake fluid if the pads have worn down and the fluid level has dropped

Brake problems...help


Do you have an ABS light on on the dash? Is it a grinding like metal to metal or a growling like an electric motor working? If its metal to metal its time for a brake job, if it's the electric sound then you have an ABS concern. Sounds like an ABS issue with it being intermittent, should get the computer scanned if you have a light on.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?


The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

ABS light and TC light on


Have you tried to replace the pads ? Or it can be the rotors that are worn thin and need replacement. The pads seem to be grinding agains the metal rotors.

ABS Light


I would not ignore this problem. Some damage has been caused to your braking system, i doubt if is is as simple as resetting the abs sensor. You should have the wheels removed and the suspension and braking systems fully checked over either by yourself or a competent mechanic .as the grinding sound could be a symptom of a serious safety hazard.

Driving on a flat could have buckled the rim or damaged the discs, steering or suspension.
