Probably a bad brake-light switch or loose connection at the switch.

2009 Dodge Caliber - The ABS & Brake Light came on as well as the feeling/sensation of the brake being applied very hard for a split second.


take it to an accredited brake specialist shop
I suspect that the brake booster is becoming defective and the small application to the pedal causes excessive booster reaction
the abs section only maintains applied brake fluid pressure as set by the position of the pedal
that is to maintain the pressure as the stopping and start movement of a skidding wheel opens and closes a valve to that wheel /s
if you are on ice that sudden hard braking will cause the wheels to lock and immediately the abs cuts in to allow the wheels to turn and then to allow brake action to be reapplied
if the abs is working under brakes you will get a pulsating feeling under your foot as the fluid pressure is alternation between full on and released by the abs valves

My dashboard lights (battery emergency brake light & air bags) are flashing on my dashboard while driving but go out when I come to a stop on my 2001 santa fe


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

WITH FRONTS WHEELS OFF GROUND EMERGENCY BRAKE APPLIED WITH PUT VECHICLE IN DRIVE LET WHEELS SPIN AT 5 MILES PER HOUR THEN APPLY BRAKE PUT VECHICLE BACK IN PARK.TURN OFF CAR. THEN WAIT FEW MINUTES THEN START ENGINE AGAIN IF THE AMBER ABS LIGHT STILL FLASHES AND DONT TURN OFF HAVE VECHICLE TOWED IN LET DEALERSHIP PRESSURE BLEED AND USE THE TECH 1 SCANNER TO BLEED AND FIX YOU BRAKES FOR YOU.

I have an 89 bmw 325is. I have replaced the 2 fr ont calipers and master cylinder. When I take it out for a test drive I noticed that the front brakes lock up on me and I have to relieve pressure on...


It is either the caliper piston will not retract after brake pressure is relieved or the flexible rubber brake line itself has collapsed internally, causing constant pressure to be applied to the front brakes.
