Check wheel speed senders clean and correctly adjusted. a wheel speed sender wire could have an internal break. an electronics diagnostic reader will pinpoint the problem as there will be a fault stored in the memory.

I would suspect a speed sensor.

SOURCE: abs and brake light is flashing on my 99 audi a6

If you need to repair the brake module, there is a fantastic article, complete with photos, at http://www.audiworld.com/tech/elec116.shtml

I followed this example for my '98 and now it works perfectly. I found a shop on eBay to rebuild my module (lifetime warranty) for under $200. It took me about 1 hour to pull it off and about 45 min to put it back on with minimum shop tools

The amber ABS warning light is telling you that there is a problem with the ABS system. When the antilock brakes don't work you just have good old fashion non antilock brakes. When the red brake warning light is on it could be a couple of things. (unless you are talking about the brake light on the back of the car is stuck on) the red brake warning light on the dash tells you when the parking brake is on and it also tells you when there is a problem with the hydraulic system. Some cars will also turn this light on when the brake fluid is low, (not sure if the Cavalier does this)

The ABS system is computer controlled and needs to be scanned for trouble codes to diagnose the problem.

I can't say I have ever heard of a "brights" indicator flashing, Do the headlights go bright and dim as it is flashing? Is it a slow on and off like a turn signal or faster than that?

ABS, TRAC OFF, SERVICE VEHICLE SOON LIGHTS ARE ON. BRAKE PEDAL PULSATES INTERMITTENLY AND MAKES NOISE.


with these lights on then you will have to see what codes are in the abs and pcm module to find out what the problems are.the abs module will activate when the traction control lights come on.this can also cause a noise and pulsate in the brakes pedal.

ABS LIGHT COMES ON AND DISENGAGES THE ABS BUT


When the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. Meaning, when the abs is light is on and you brake, the tires will lock up with heavy braking.

Escapes have a common issue of the ABS excitor rings cracking causing ABS problems. Sometimes it activates on almost every brake application. It may set a code in the ABS computer for an intermitten wheel speed sensor or no wheel speed signal. Check all the "rings" on the outside of all four axleshafts. If none of the rings are cracked it is likely a bad ABS wheel speed sensor.

When braking the Rendezvous jerks forward just before stopping completely. This is an intermitten problem, usually when first leaving for the day. Any suggustions? Thanks


I would have a brake tech at a reliable auto center check the abs (anti-lock brake system)
Do you have any lights on in your dash with the letters abs ?
I would have this checked out now. It is not safe to drive your vehicle if there are brake problems, no matter how " intermitten"
Please let me know what you find.

1996 Ford Windstar 3.8L, Brake light is on-brakes work fine


Abs light on means the ABS sytem has a fault.
You can determine what is wrong by counting the flashes (they say) and then put the data in on the web.

IE abs, windstar, failure, 3 flashes.

The brake light on is most likely picking up on uneven brake pressure, or a failing master cylinder/
You may not feel any difference yet, give it a little time, feel for a pedal fade at a light.
