One of the front calipers is seized. You can take it apart and overhaul, but usually a new one is worth it, BUT you should replace both sides as it could happen to the other one.

Please don't drive the car anymore until it is fixed. Hope this helps, stay safe.

How do I engage my abs brakes in my 94 Chrysler concorde

The ABS function is always on by default. You cannot just turn it off and on.

It only functions during hard or panic stops to prevent the car from skidding out of control. You'll feel a pulsation in the brake pedal under those conditions as it alternately reduces, then re-applys, the brake pressure on any wheel that's beginning to skid.

It does this by monitoring the speed of each wheel, then comparing those speeds to one another. When a wheel is detected to be slower than the others, it indicates a skid is happening, or about to happen, on that wheel. The pressure is then momentarily reduced on that wheel to allow it to regain traction.

Skid control

sounds like you might have lost traction on one of the drive tires momentarily this could have been caused by moisture or oil on the road when you took off, if it only happened once don't worry about it

Multiple problems with Hyundai Sonata : 1. Car does not start very often. 2. When it does I have an orange light on the dash showing a car with skid marks. 3.The shifter gets stuck in park sometimes.

on your a/c blowing warm air at stops it sounds like radaitor cooling fan not working, fan motor or fan relay most likly cause, light with skid marks sounds like anti=lock brake system problem, possible bad wheel speed sensor, on shifter getting stuck and engine not starting sounds like ignition switch going bad, hope this helps ?

What would cause my brakes to pulsate when coming to a slow stop?

Hi Sheri, happy that you managed to sort out the problem. The operation of the ABS pulsates as you have described. It sends a small electrical charge to the management system, telling the system when the brake is about to lock and momentarily releases that particular brake for that wheel. If the wheels lock when braking and the vehicle skids, control is lost. With ABS the skidding is eliminated and thereby making the vehicle safer. Regards John

While driving ABS light came on and car went into a skid, what could have happened?

Abs Light:
If its glowing momentarily while driving in slick conditions then its normal operation..
But if it stays glowing even under dry pavement then there is a problem with your anti lock brake and traction control system..
It happens commonly of wheel speed sensor which malfunctions..
Try to access the data in the anti lock brake module to find out which one malfunctions..

My ABS light keeps coming on and off. Sometimes its rough pushing the brake down and it makes a wierd noise.

Sounds like one of the sensors at the tires is not working right. Its actually better if the light stays on. With it turning on and off will make it harder for you to stop cause the computer does not know what to do. Check brake fulid level. If it stays on you will have normal brakes. Have the sensors checked or replaced. ABS was design for panic stops so you don't lock up the tires an skid.

Constant whine when driving and wheels lock/skid in sharp turns

One way to track down the noise; since sound travels through metal its hard to pinpoint when driving in the car.
Jack all four wheels off the ground securely (preferably a lift) and run the car with the wheels spinning. Then, without dying, listen for the noise. The dealer can do it for you as well. But sounds like a bad differential.
