Question about Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Abs light is permanently on and signal sounds. Also the brake light is on. We have to floor the brake pedal to stop the car.Is it possible the the hydraulic pump booster is defective and has to be replaced? What do you think are other possible causes of such other than leaking? I'm afraid to drive it since brake might not work.

Well if you don't have a leak in the brakes hydraulic system then I would say you either have a broken/disconnected power brake booster vacumn line(booster is mounted to the rear of the master cylinder pie like disk shape), a bad power brake booster
Immediatley have this cars brake ABS system computer scanned for codes to find out what the ABS light being on is about, that is usually due to a broken wheel sensor, but a code scan will reveal the truth.
So in reality you have a two part problem, as long as you have a full master cylinder revealing no leaks, which are: 1) brake booster/defunct or vac. line problem. 2) ABS system scan for wheel sensor or the like.
Hope this Works!!!
Happy Motoring!!

first check on every wheel make sure you see no wet . from brake cyclinders leaking. make sure brake fluid is full. when you replaced master cyc. did you bleed that before you hooked lines to it if not do that. abd bleed all brakes again. if still pedal goes down then it is the brake booster its self. hope this helps.

OK, if the ABS light is on one should scan it with an OBD-II ABS Brake Scan tool like Actron's ($99 to $116 on Amazon.com).

This will likely tell you which wheel has a bad speed sensor.

There could be an internal fluid leak on the master cylinder which needs to be addressed before it's safe to drive.

It would be nice to have the ABS portion of your braking system fixed at the same time.

You may be looking at a new ABS Brake Wheel Speed Sensor which is sometimes put into the hub permanently (requiring a new hub).

It sounds like you have a bad mastercylinder cause when you panic brake it doesn't have time to bleed through the valve in the cylinder but under normal braking your foot is on pedal longer in turn giving the fluid time to bypass the valve in the mastercylinder in turn the pedal going to the floor.

If the brake pedal goes to the floor with the car off, I would suspect air in the system or some other issue with the service brakes. If you feel and hear a growl in the pedal when it goes to the floor then your abs controller may be at fault. There are many possibilities. In either case if your pedal goes to the floor, then you are looking at a safety issue. Generally the service brake system (regular brake system) is the fault and not the abs. I have however seen a sticking dump valve or faulty wheel speed sensor cause an abs issue. Start with the basics first. Leaky wheel cylinders/ calipers, brake lines, or master cylinder. Verify the hydraulic integrity of the service brakes before tackling an abs issue.

sounds like you are getting a false ABS activation. Check the axles at the outer cv joints to see if the sensor rings for the ABS are cracked. A common problem.
