Open Question

Last week while driving the ABS and Parking Brake lights came on. I have not noticed any difference in the braking system since. Checked all the fluids and everything seems fine. What is happening?

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Durango. Brake Light and the ABS Light

If you backup lights are not working as well, I would say check the fuse for the backup lights, if the fuse is good, see if you are getting power to that fuse. We had this problem and after weeks of searching and changing sensors, we found the backup light fuse was good, but not getting power. Ran a wire from that fuse to the cig. lighter fuse and all woprksf great.

SOURCE: rear brakes locking(until abs kicks in) with

Even if the proportioning valve is wide open the rear brakes should not lock up, this is indicative of the front piston not working on the master cylinder, if there was a problem with the abs it would throw a code so to check use two people to do this one to apply the brakes and one to tun the wheel. apply the brake gently while turning it by hand with all 4 wheels off the ground, if the wheels stop at the same time for all for wheels then you have another problem, Do this with the key on engine off in neutral. It sounds like you have a problem with the primary brake shoe the front of drum brake in rear or if disk then the disk brake. Check to see if the Emergency brake cables are not binding if the e-brake is disc the wire cable where the wheel splitter is may be frayed and is keeping the emergency brakes applied and causing this to happen. If this is not explained in a way you can understand post a reply and tell me to clarify if you don't understand what I am saying. The reason I say to do it without running is it will not use the ABS system to mess with your results this will test the mechanical area, thats where i think the problem is. If you let to much fluid drain out it is possible when you started bleeding the brakes if you did not bleed the fronts first you may have damaged the master cylinder piston seal for the disk brakes.

Parking brake light is on


You may have play in the park brake pedal due to park brake cables needing servive/repair. If you pull up on the park brake pedal when the light is on... will it go out? Another reason for this light to come on is low brake fluid. Have the level checked

ABS and Parking brake lights come on after shifting into drive and moving a few feet


Have the ABS codes scanned. Could be wheel speed sensors, however when the parking brake light comes on this is an indication that the EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) has a problem.
The most common 1216 error was repaired on mine by sending it in to a company online for $150.00. took about a week.

TCS light & ABS Light on/off intermitent


usually when there is an interuption in current flow you will get flickering indicator lights on the dash. This means one of two things, either the sensors that control those indicator lights are becoming faulty or the alternator may be on its way out. One thing you need to keep in mind if you ABS unit is on its way out you will not notice any difference in drivability. ABS is just a brake assist(Antilock Brake System) when it fails you don't lose your brakes you just stop like a regular brake system would without an assist.(ABS) Maybe the unitis on its way out as well.. I would ge it checked as well.. Good Luck

Gmc yukon has the abs & parking brake light


you have to fix the problem with ur brakes- first check the wiring ,connectors and connection clips to the abs sensors and modulator if looks ok than have truck scanned some auto stores such as auto zone / advanced auto do it for free the code will give u a start point towards fixing ur problem--visual inspection of brakes doesnt always show problem

Parking brake light stays on.


Do you have a separate parking brake light and a "regular" brake light? Most vehicles only have one light, it illuminates when the parking brake is set, but it also illuminates when the system detects a failure anywhere in the brake system.

You could have a separate light for the anti-lock brake system (ABS ).

Your description of a light that is on till you apply the brakes is usually a sign of some sort of system brake failure. Start with brake fluid level, then inspect the brakes at each wheel, looking for a leak.

If nothing detected there, then you likely have something more serious. (Master brake cyclinder bad, possible something in the ABS brakes, etc.)

Others may disagree, but I would suggest not driving the vehicle (except to a mechanic) until this is corrected.

My brake light stays on and the fluid is full. what can i do to fix it


is it the abs light or the brake light there could be a couple different things wrong with it. if it's the abs light your abs system is acting up and it will need to be checked out. if it's the brake light then your brake fluid level sensor could be bad, or your parking brake switch could be going out, and there's other things that could be wrong with it.

2003 Mountaineeer wont shift into Park


There is a shift interlock mechanism that only alows the key to come out in park. It is the same mechanism that will not let you put it into gear unless you put your foot on the brake. You cannot safely bypass it.

Service Brake system flashed three seperate times over 24 hours


2 suggestions:

(1) I would suggest someone scan the ABS system for codes. I Have an '03 silverado 2500HD Crew cab, and it needs an EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) "ABS module". "Service Brake System" message on dash, ABS and Brake warning lamps lit as well. May be the R/F ABS wheel speed sensor, but what you described happen, shouldn't have caused damage to it.
(2) If the aftermarket rim and tire combo are larger than stock (larger overall diameter), then this may affect the way your PCM functions. You can reprogram the PCM to recognize larger diameter running gear so trans shift points and the speedometer and such can function properly.
I hope this helps.
