Are you getting air out of the bleed nipples at the wheels ? if you getting a good flow of brake fluid at the wheels then sounds like there air stuck in the abs pump, First try bleeding the brakes again with the engine running and under load with some1 pressing the brake pedal on and off . If you still not have a very good pedal crack the brake pipes off at the abs pump just very slightly just enough for the fluid to flow out and repeat the bleeding process again with some1 pressing the pedal on and off and that should sort the problem out . please feel free to ask any questions thanks

Need to replace abs actuator wiring on a toyota 20v black top. Both lugs are broken need to know which wire goes to which pin on the abs actuator


it probably will not matter which wire goes on which terminal as the sensor is a simple pick up of an impulse
however it you check the other sensor actuators on the other wheels , the colors should give you some indication

Abs actuator toyota


Remove the front wheels and inspect the ABS connector wires that run above the control arm. Chances are you will find that these wires are damaged.The ABS is in or around the wheel bearing and there is a clip that can be gently pried back to remove the ABS plug from the Wheel bearing sensor or the external sensor in that area.
Sometimes a faulty alternator will light up the ABS sensor light. Check to see if the vehicle is charging when this light is on., typical voltages while the car is on should be around 12.5 to 14 volts. You can test it right at the battery while the car is running.
Sometimes an alternator will only go faulty once the component inside get hot.
Typically the wires to the Wheel Hub sensor goes bad from exposure to the elements, especially snow and ice climates or rocks and dirt-roads a lot or if you go through bushes a lot.

ABS actuator problem on a 2002 Toyota Funcargo.


Try spraying some wd40 on the break light switch. it might be stuck closed/opened. may have to pull it with some pliers.. That switch it's right at the end of the break pedal (one button on one side a thin cable by the other). In my case I bought a new one for like 10 but came out defective so I just put back the original after doing the trick with the wd40. Good luck.

No brake pressure...


I would keep bleeding. If there is not any brake fluid leaking, there must be air in the system. with the master cyl cap off, open one bleeder valve on the front and let it bleed for 10 mins. close and repeat with the rest. there must be an air bubble in the system! good luck

Brake light flashes - abs lights stays on then they go off and a triangle with a circle around it comes on


I suspect bad Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch. Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal position switch placed above pedals on the support.

The best idea is to access the ABS ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com, or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Code) memored. Then you will be able to replace bad pieces (e.g.: brake pedal switch, front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
Good Luck!

Why is my brake pedal vibrating ? I had my brakes fixed and have new tires so what else could be causing the vibration ?


Two possible causes to the pulsing. Lets start with the least expensive first. Warped Rotors. Brake rotors/discs get extremely heated during braking and if you drive in the rain or drive through some standing water at the right time, the Heat and Cool cycle of the braking and then quenching by the water can cause the metal to warp. Even a slight warp will cause some vibration in the front end and a pulsing in the pedal. If the rotors havent been turned during the brake job or replaced I would look here first. The only way to determine is if the wheel is taken off and rotor visibly inspected. Second and most costly is the ABS Control module. Best way to explain is in a small box under your car in the middle by the drivers car door are 6 little plungers... to visualize think suction cups arranged like a 6 pack of coke. When you press your brake peddle in an ABS car these plunger open and close valves to in effect pump your brakes very very rapidly. ABS systems took the old 1970's pump the brakes and automated it. That helped prevent skids when people slammed on brakes during wet weather or accidents. They are controlled by a computer unit called a Control Module (Kelsey ABS Control for GM vehicles) when this starts to go bad you get the pulse in your pedal as the ABS system actuates improperly. Good news is even if the ABS controller goes out you WILL still have brakes, just not ABS brakes. Now lets get to cost. A rotor for your car depending on quality and type runs from 25 to 85 dollars (higher price is for more of a racing/speed type set up with frequent braking not everyday driving.. they are slotted and drilled to dissipate heat faster) Labor at a local mechanic to replace is going to be about $80. The ABS Controller module for your car runs from $745 up to $1100 dollars and the replacement cost is going to be about $200 for labor.

Bleed right rear,left rear, right front, left front in that order to be sure of good bleed but the brake booster makes it easy to push pedal. Make sure of no leaks from master cylinder. Otherwise brake hoses being soft will also hurt baking quickly.

i would check the brake booster first that is what gives you the resistance to return the peddle to operating hight.no on the abs because even if it fails it wont chane anything but the cars tendency to lock up the wheels
