ABS light on and will not go off. Just had to replace the ball joints and the ABS connection had to be disconnected, now it is on and will not go off. Also the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor and the brakes are not as good as before.

You need to get the codes from the electronic brake control module.This will tell you what wheel speed sensor is causing the problem.Then check the wiring by ohming the wire from ebcm to the connector on the hub.It is possible you could have a bad reluctor ring in the hub bearing.I have ran into a few of these.The best way to tell is it usually happens when going slow and turning like in parking lot manuvers.Hope this helps.Good luck.

It sounds like the person who did your work disconnected your brake hoses and now you have air introduced air into the system ( air is compressible, fluid is not). You need to go back to who did the work and get the brakes bled. Be very careful because you are driving on the ragged edge of safety with minimal brakes. If a garage did it, I would have them come and tow it back.

    The brake hoses were not disconnected. The only thing that was D/C was at the sensors at the wheel in order to replace the ball joints.

    Disconnecting your abs sensors will not make the brake pedal go to the floor for the same reason that if you have an anti-skid fault you do not lose your brakes, only the anti-skid module control of your brakes.
    If you removed your calipers and compressed the pistons, then the brakes would feel spongy momentarily until you depress the brake pedal several times and move the caliper piston back into position. Something besides the anti-lock sensor was disturbed in your brake system.

Removing lower ball joint on nissan navara


Remove front wheel (axle stand under chassis).
Remove hub nut (32mm).
Disconnect steering track rod ball joint (leave nut on last few threads for protection 22mm then strike steering arm part of knuckle to shock pin free).
Remove brake caliper & disc. Hang caliper out of way. No need to disconnect brake hose.
Disconnect ABS sensor at top arm area and unclip from mount.
Loosen top ball joint nut. Strike part of knuckle where pin goes through to shock it free. leave nut on loose for now.
Undo lower ball joint pinch bolt & remove. This will probably be seized & will require plenty of penetrating oil & patience to get out.
Next the lower ball joint pin needs to come out of the knuckle so the knuckle can be taken off. You will probably have to beat a chisel into the split portion to open it slightly as the ball joint pin will be rusted in.
Now you have plenty of space to remove the ball joint from the lower arm. Jack vehicle & move stand to under lower arm just in enough to allow ball joint to be removed.
Remove circlip & hammer ball joint out. Use a suitable drift so as not to accidently miss & burr lower arm.
Now the part the perfectionists are not going to approve of.
Heat the hole in the arm gently with a torch (no need to get it glowing red hot but pretty hot!). You will know when its right by trying the old joint (you will be able to get it in position by hand easily without hammering). Now put the new ball joint in place & quickly & drench with cold water before any heat from the arm damages the new ball joint. Fit new circlip.
Reassemble everything in reverse.
There are other ways to do this job but I found this the most practicle for DIYer without special tools.

Upper and lower ball joints


It's definitely easier to replace the control arms with the ball joints. I think you may have to buy new upper control arms anyway if they are oe i don't think the upper ones can be pressed out. If you are going to press the ball joints out you do not need to remove the springs or struts. Brake caliper/rotor/hub and knuckle are removed leaving the upper and lower control arms. i would disconnect the abs connector too if it has abs. recommend supporting the vehicle on the frame somewhere. You can buy a ball joint press kit for about 80$ online or use a really big hammer to smack them out. Putting them back in may be a pain without a press.
