Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

On my 1998 Grand Caravan, the ABS light has come on and I know that I need to replace the front brake pads as I heard them squeeling this weekend but also now the front blower stopped working for the AC with the rear blower still working, as well as the turn signals have now stopped working. I'll be replacing the brake pads tomorrow but I don't see how the ABS light turning on can affect the turn signals and the front blower? Any ideas?

The ABS light is most likely a bad Wheel Speed Sensor.

The Blower is most likely a Blower Resistor that rusted away. You should have a couple of blower speeds left.

The directional issues are the third problem

Work on one thing at a time.

Bad brake master cylinder could cause this, It will start leaking internally and not build up pressure. Will happen just do to age, will need to replace it and bleed brake system.

The ABS light came on this morning, can u tell me what that is and if it is something major i need to take care of now?

ABS = Anti-lock Braking System. It means there's a malfunction of some sort. It could be the ABS pump, one of the ABS speed sensors located on the axles just behind the steering knuckles, etc. Your best bet it to head somewhere (garage, dealership, Advance Auto) that can read the code the ABS system is throwing. This way you'll know exactly what's wrong with it.
As for it being a big deal.. well the ABS system won't function when it detects an error. What this means is if you have to jam on your brakes, the tires are going to lock up and squeel to a stop. With the ABS functioning, the computer will pump/release the brakes so the wheels don't lock up, giving you more steering control in the stop

I have replaced brake pads on many cars, but never on a car with ABS. How do you disarm the ABS system to change the brake pads on a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?

The most common failure of an ABS is wheel sensors. I doubt you'll have to replace the entire system.

2006 grand caravan abs and brake light on and off all new brakes front and back pads and rotors,lights on touch brake pedal and goes out for awhile

If the ABS lite is comming on, the module is detecting a problem in that system. There will most likely be a code in the computer. take it to your dealer and have it check. The most common problem i see in these is a failed speed sensor.

2004 grand caravan abs brakes

Sounds like you have pushed the brake peddle to the floor after you changed the pads. This can cause major probs in the master cylinder. The brake warning light should come on if this is the trouble. Frankster016
