Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada

1 Answer

The abs light came on about a week ago. nothing was going on utill i went to stop one day and it felt like it was trying to grab but couldnt. i just had new balljoints and tie rod ends put on both sides. and a roder on the passenger side. i had it looked at and a piston in the calaper on the front passenger side was sticking so i had it fixed and bleed the brakes but it is still doing it. when you go to stop it stops like nothing is wrong until the end of your stop and then it acts like it cant get ahold of anything. when it does it it makes a weird sound like a spring or something. when you get in and start it the brake goes all the way to the floor. the brakes are disk brakes.

What to do with a brake booster out and the ABS light came on? 1998 Isuzu Trooper


Hi Rebecca,
Since the AntiLock Braking System utilizes the power (vacuum) boost to operate normally, the ABS indicator should come on if the booster fails. Yes, this means your ABS system is not able to function correctly, but neither are your standard brakes (as the extra pedal effort required to stop will tell you). however, your brakes DO WORK, so driving it to get the codes scanned shouldn't be too dangerous - just be ready to stand on the brake pedal with both feet and leave yourself plenty of room to stop by driving slowly and looking well ahead for stopped traffic. Once your booster is fixed, the ABS light should go off without any special reset or clearing of ECM memory. Good luck and happy motoring!

1993 Lincoln Town car 3 years ago on a very HOT day my right front brake started violently grabbing, even without touching the brake. The ABS light comes on intermittently, it usually goes off after...


I had a very similar problem in my 93 town car. I ended up changing the Calipers, rotors, and pads. This stopped the grabbing, but still every once and a while the ABS light would come on and grip the brakes on me. I ended up pulling the ABS relay from under the hood.and the problem has stayed away. The only thing is that now i dont ABS brakes. Its a heavy car tho and i havent had an issue yet. Also, if you decide to do this, the relay way mis marked in my car, when i pulled the ABS relay, the Air shocks went out instead. Had to pull one at a time until the anti lock light came on, then i knew i had it.

First, Iam not a fan of flushing a trans. Owned a trans shop years ago.
You may have caused some solenoid issues, with the clutch material and cooler sediment.
Work on the ABS,TSC issues. Wheel Speed Sensors may be going and just a coincidence, a couple weeks later.
Make sure the fluid is correct for your vehicle and at the correct level.
I pray you didn't go to one of the Quick Lube Franchises.
