Joe, check the brakes. This happens when cylinders or pistons freeze and you are actually only braking with partial brakes being applied, which leads to lock up, which invokes ABS.

Look for damaged or worn abs sensor wires at the wheels. Also, metal flakes sometimes alter input singals.

This is known as overactive ABS.

Sounds like there is an issue with the speed signal from one of the able sensors. This can be caused by a sensor going bad, Excessive are gap between a sensor and the exciter ring, debris on an exciter ring, or a broken exciter ring.

Have the ABS module scanned for codes. Once you know the codes you'll know where to look.

I have a 2000 ford escort zx2 and the shifter won't engage unless I use the override button.What is causing my shifter not to work?


There is a solenoid lock which works on the brake light circuit, if the brake lights are working it is possible the solenoid has packed up. Need to check it's operation.

2005 Chevy impala brake pedal pulsation with brand new rotors installed


Is your ABS working properly? Under heavy braking the ABS should engage and 'pulse' the brakes on/off. It is normal to feel the brake petal flutter or pulse under your foot.

Under light braking there should be no pulsing as the ABS does not engage and you have changed the rotors and pads.

The abs system is not currently working and will not engage if you push on the brake abruptly. Resetting the light will resume the ABS function.

My abs light on my 2000 buick lesabre will not shut off i have replaced rotors and pads what could the problem be


The warning light indicates that there is a malfuction in the anti-lock Brake System (ABS). Normally the system will then cease to function so you have a conventional braking system with no anti-lock feature to engage if you lock up the wheels on braking.

This ABS fault warning has nothing to do with the condition of the pads and rotors so renewing them, which is essential for good braking performance, will not solve the problem.

You will need to take the vehicle to a mechanic with the correct equipment to diagnose the cause of the ABS warning. It may be as simple as a failed ABS sensor (or sensors) and that is what I would be checking first.

It is quite safe to drive the vehicle with the ABS disengaged because your brakes will operate normally. What you don't have is the ABS kicking in to release the brake pressure temporarily in the event you brake hard and lock up any of the wheels.

ABS Light and Parking brake light on


sounds like your vehicle speed sensor is going out. it's the modern equivilent of a speedometer cable. it tells the computer how fast your going which the computer uses to determine shift points, abs function, and speedometer readings. they usually act up a bit before they go out. it confuses the computer. normally located in the extension housing at the rear of the transmission where the spedometer cable would be on an older vehicle
