My antilock brake light comes on after I go down the road a little ways, it seems like after the truck warms up, would that be an antilock brake sensor or another problem that would cause that sensor to kick?

Why is my truck not starting without a jump. Also something on front end(brakes) making loud clanky noise and right wheel blowing out brake dust that looks like oil or tar on hubcap


There are a number of things the reason your vehicle won't start with out a boost. Is your battery up to full charge. Sounds like you need a brake job as well. I really can't help without seeing what's going on.

Ani brake light comes on somtimes


"ani brake light"??? Do you mean Antilock Brake light? If the antilock brake warning lamp is illuminating while driving under normal driving conditions, then you probably have a malfunction in your antilock brake system. You must scan your antilock brake control module to find out why it has been illuminating the light. Wheel speed sensor malfunctions are a common cause of the symptoms you are describing, but you cannot be sure if that is what is causing it, or which one is causing the problem without scanning the controller and performing proper diagnosis.

I'm actually having a couple of problems with my 2002 buick century. The first of which is whenever I am driving my car there is a high pitched spuealing noise coming what seems to be the front passenger...


Good Evening. First off I would like to give you a little advice on your passenger side windshield wiper. On your windshield wipers there is a nut at the base of the arm, try tightening that nut down (of course while your wipers are off) and that should make it work going off the description of your wiper problem. Your Antilock and trac off are lights that are tied into your antilock brake system and will both come on together. Your high pitched squeal could be a few things like brake pads, or a backing plate rubbing. Your hub assembly really won't make a squeal but would be a good reason for the anti lock light to be on. Your best bet is to have the antilock system scanned for codes to know exactly what is making the system to pass a code. Any other questions please feel free to ask. Hope this helps.

What is bas ans esp light mean


It will come on sometimes while driving in certain conditions, like a rough or loose road surface. It's indicating that the stability and antilock brake systems etc are in operation while those road conditions exist.

It will go out when normal road conditions are detected.

Brake pedal Goes lower & feels Spongy after Engine warms uo on my 03 Camry 4 cyl, with antilock Brakes. Pedal feels ok until driving 20 or 30 miles. Seems to be Heat related?


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

It sounds to us like your rear brakes are out of adjustment. This does indeed give you the feeling that you are experiencing.

Here is a quick and easy way to tell if this is indeed the case:

In a safe location, like an empty parking lot, stop, set the park brake, and then give the car a little gas. If the car moves forward at all, your rear brakes are not adjusted properly. If the car moves, you will need to take the car to a professional that is capable of performing a brake adjustment for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

1998 GMC Yukon ABS light stays on from start to off the engine


Hello,
It sounds like the wheel speed sensor may have been damaged in the process of removing the tire. That would cause the abs light to come on. Ususaly when the abs light comes on it is a sign they won't opperate as abs but only as standard hydraulic brakes. I hope this helps. If you have more questions reguarding this or other conserns please ask me. Please remember high ratings are very important to me.

Thank You,
Roy

When driving down the road my tires seem to lock up with a very loud squealing. If I let set a little bit and get back in car and put in reverse a little and then drive it goes again....but it seems when...


Sounds like your brake calipers are locking up your tires.I had a friend with the same car that had the same problem the next stop you should make is the auto shop.I would not drive any more until you get them looked at.Its not really the car that's warming up its your brakes one way that you can tell is if you smell a really strong odor coming from your brakes.When you put it in reverse your unlocking the brakes from the drum or disc.
