Its more advisable to repair the abs than to disconnect vehicles do not pass inspection with the abs disconnected -since the trouble code will be in the computer memory ---check the connections to the sensors the biggest problem is usually debris knocks loose the connection or damages a wire ---have the car scanned most auto stores such as auto zone / advanced auto offer this service for free the trouble code will pinpoint the problem for u ----but if u still want to disconnect the abs remove the fuse [[some cars and trucks sometimes have other components attached to the fuse or if u have traction control will shut it down also ]]]]

I have a 02 grand prix the abs light and trac off light came on and when i push my brakes half way down it makes a grinding noise got codes c0040 and c0245 from auto zone what is the problem please help i...


You probably have a problem with one or both of the front brakes - probably a wheel bearing shot and ABS sensor failed or disconnected. I would take to a brake shop immediately, and not attempt a long run with the car.

The abs lighton my 2000 mercury mystique comes on and the brakes make loud noise


The noise you hear from the brakes? is it a scraping grinding noise? if so your metal to metal on one or more of your wheels and that can cause the ABS to mal-funtion. If the brakes are good then it sounds like the ABS module is failing. I wouldn't remove the fuse because other systems may be relying on that fuse to work. Find the ABS module and dis-connect it. To find out more information on your ABS system go to your local library.

My brakes seem to make a loud vibration sound when I barely apply them, it's like the anit-lock braking sound when you hit ice but the roads are completely dry. I had the brakes looked at but they


reset the ERCM using a scan tool
while the brake pads looked fine , the rotors should be removed as that gives the same impression as the abs in operation
there could be a cracked rotor causing the noise
take it to an accredited brake specialist shop

How do I release the brake pressure so I can repair the pump?


first I would disconnect the battery of the vehicle so there is no power for the pump to work..then bleed the system pressure off.. maybe by opening a line slowly..honestly I am guessing but if in doubt call the service dept and see if they can tip you also..my fortey is the older vehicles but I am game to try anyway...

It's making a noise near the gas tank like a pump of some kind is running. thought it was the fuel pump but the abs light is on.


Noise in tank is fuel pump. ABS light on is another problem - ABS is your anti lock brakes - more than likely a sensor is worn or disconnected check wheel sensors.

I ve got a kalos 1.4sx 2008 and i ve got problems with the brakes. The brakes ''crunch'' when i m bringing the car to a halt,even on dry roads. The abs warning light has been on a couple of times but...


The Chevrolet/GM autos rely on a Kelsey ABS actuator system that is electronically controlled. I know its hard to describe sounds, but is it possible the crunch is a hum? If the ABS light comes on and goes off after restart it means one of two things. That the ABS controller is going bad or the speed sensors on the wheels have come loose or gone bad. Under your hood there is a fuse compartment that contains the fuse that controls the ABS system on your vehicle. Its a 60 Amp fuse and large.. Look in your owners manual for its location. . Check it with the vehicle OFF to make sure its not blown or cracked. Leave the fuse disconnected and start the car. The ABS light should STAY on as well as the parking brake light. Test your brakes by pressing down on them while the car is in park and not moving.. do you hear the sound. If you DONT hear the sound then the ABS control module is causing the brake pump to work continuously and thus your "noise". YOu can confirm by placing the fuse back in place and then listening to the car about where the drivers door is... do you hear a hum? If so you can leave the fuse disconnected to deactivate the ABS module. The brakes will still function you just WONT have ABS capability. Confirm this with a very slow roll from park or neutral and press brakes to stop. If you dont hear the noise or a hum, reconnect the fuse and take the car for a drive. Turn to the left and right while applying the brake at an intersection.. vehicle in motion slightly. Do you notice that the ABS light or noise occurs turning one way or the other or both? If it comes on during the turn then the ABS sensor in that wheel or both wheels need to be inspected and possibly replaced. Finally, you need to inspect the brake pads for wear..typically however brake pads have WEAR INDICATORS built in and will start to SQUEAL when you apply the brakes telling you time to replace pads. If its a squeal and not a crunch then have pads replaced. Finally, be sure and make sure you dont have any rocks or road debris within the brake area or between teh pads and the rotors. That would be your final area to review for a CRUNCH noise.

Lincoln ls 2004 service park brake light keeps coming on


This can be brake wear sensor or ABS sensor.
I can not help you on the brake job but you can verify it by listening carefully for a metal to metal contact sound.
This is a small metal tab that make noise when the pad is low. This warn you to service the brakes soon.
=========
For dirty ABS sensor
The simple DIY method is to gently hose down each wheels when there are COMPLETELY COLD. Dirt can cover to ABS sensors.

Most failure are from the front wheels because of the heat.

The car wash with under side cleaning will also do the trick if it's a dirt related problem.

Remove the negitive battery cable or clear OBD-II code.

MAC and OTC make ABS senor tester to pin point the trouble spot but it cost $$$.

Do the preventive cleaning before bring it to the shop.

Fixing brakes


you have a abs fault considering the year I of the van I would remove abs fuse or unplug the moduale to disaable it. the humming that you are hearing is the abs dumping pressure due to a false reading from one of the sensors or the moduale if you want to spend the money to make the abs work you will have to take it to a shop and have them hook up a computer to retreive the codes to diagnois the problem. keep in mind that with the abs dissabled the wheels will lock up when braking hard or slick roads let me know how you make out

Brakes on my 97 mountaineer pulse when i am almost to a complete


This can be from warped rotors. Also try cleaning rear abs sensors. What happens in rear is brake dust does not have momentum at low speeds to fan out away from wheel sensors. Loose debris falls into abs sensors and makes abs activate. Big culprit in rear is emergency brake linings separate and get crushed then foul sensors.
