NO. One of your wheels is locking up..... OR the ABS unit THINKS it is. You will need it scanned by a good repair shop and they will find that one of your Wheel Speed Sensors is bad.

On my 91 cougar it sat for about 2 months due to a power steering problem I fixed that problem now my abs and brake lights stay on is it possible if I bleed all four brakes they might shut off?


"Is it possible if I bleed all four brakes they might shut off?"

If you bleed the brakes all you will do is remove any air in the brake lines and replace the brake fluid with new fluid. Do this in any event if the brake fluid is 2 yrs old or more.

This will have no affect on the ABS warning light and when the light is displayed the ABS has turned off because there is a problem with the ABS. You will not get it back on until the cause is determined and fixed which may be just a failed wheel speed sensor.

The brake warning has probably been triggered by the same failure that has caused the ABS warning light (since they came on together and bleeding the brakes should make no difference).

If the car sat for 2 months, no doubt the battery went flat. You have not mentioned anything about the battery but if your battery is in poor shape this can trigger warning lights in many cars especially the ABS (and stability control systems).

The best option is to have the vehicle scanned for fault codes that have been generated and there will be one or 2 if these warning lights are displayed. Scanning the ABS for codes will show up one or more issues and you can trace the problem from there. I think you will find the brake warning and ABS warning have been caused by the same fault.

In any event make sure you check the brake fluid level in the car and look for any external leaks of fluid that may have developed. Check the operation of your brakes to ensure they are working normally and that the brake pedal is not slowly dropping to the floor when you continue to apply pressure. Bleed the brakes if the brake fluid is 2 yrs old or more.

Bleeding brakes


wheel bearings are wore out so abs isnt working. change them and the abs light and spedo will be fixed. peddle is low because the fluid goes through the not working abs box.

try bleeding your ABS block first, if that doesn not work could need a master or proportioning vavle. Some scan tools are capable of bleeding the ABS system on some vehicles, and some you have to bleed manually.

I have a 1999 chevy silverado with a 4.8 LITER.. my brakes were fine until i broke a line at the frnt passenger side. i lost most of the fluid..i repaired thr line and bled the sytem numerous times.. i...


Hello, my name is Ben. Since you say you lost most of the brake fluid, I agree it's most likely air trapped in the ABS modulator. The problem is once air is trapped in the modulator, it will take a trip to the dealer to bleed the system. Before you go to the dealer, you may want to try bleeding the brakes IN THIS ORDER, right rear,left rear, right front and finally left front.. That is the recommended sequence.

Driver side brake not bleeding properly after bleeding left side and changing rotors, calipers, and pads?


first of all make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid.then you crank car leave foot off brake pedal. watch abs light on dash it should turn off in 10 seconds if not have car towed to garage or dealer. they have to use a scanner to scan the abs brakes if abs light turn off in 3 seconds. then starting bleeding from master bleed the lower brake line fitting at the proportional valve followed by the upper brake line fitting. keep eye on brake fluid in mastercylinder dont let run dry.next prime the abs hydralic modulator.connect the bleeder hose to the rear bleeder valve on the modulator.place the other end into a container partially filled with cleab brake fluid.make sure the end of the hose is submerged.open the bleeder valve slowly about 1/2 to 3/4 turn have an assistant depress the brake pedal and hold it in the depressed position. when the flow of fluid ceases close the bleeder valve.repeat process until no air bubbles are present in the fluid.then tighten the bleed valve securely. start bleeding brakes. your bleeding sequence is right rear - left front - left rear - right front.WARNING IF ALL FAILS YOUR BRAKES DONT FEEL SOLID AND FEEL VERY SPONGY.DONT DRIVE CAR. HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO PRESSURE BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM.

DID YOU RECENTLY CHANGE THE BRAKES YORE SELF OR A SHOP MAYBE BLEED OR FILLED THE FLUID YOU'RE SELF ANYWAYS IF ANY AND I MEAN ANY AIR GETS INTO THE SYSTEM THE ABS ACTIVATES AND IT HAS TO BE FIXED BY THE DEALER OR SOMEONE WITH A ABS SCAN TOLL TO TRIP THE SENSOR AND LET THE AIR ESCAPE ALSO USING SYNTHETIC FLUID CAN ALSO CAUSE PROBLEMS IF THE SYSTEM IS NOT RATED FOR IT REALLY BUBBLY IT IS.

I HAVE A 1998 dodge ram 318 1500 two wheel drive the abs and brake light come on but it brakes fine when the brake light and abs light go out i have to really push the pedal down to stop the petal feels...


you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps
