05 Montana abs light on and off strong vibration. If remove fuse from abs system will it fix the vibration??


It should not.
The ABS system is only designed to aid your braking of your vehicle.
If the vibration is happening all the time you are driving, it should be a tire problem.
If the vibration is happening when you brake the car, it should be a warped brake rotor problem.
God bless your efforts.

Might just be a loose connection on the power steering hoses. You'll need to get under (BE CAREFUL) your car or get it up on a car hoist. You or a mechanic, should be able to trace where the leak is and either tighten the connections or replace the hose. Cold weather brings on leaks ! !
I don't think the brake vibration has anything to do with it. Brake vibration usually means the brake rotors are warping. Common problem. Have you have your brakes checked lately? Might be time for new pads and rotors.
Good Luck

Brake pedal vibration


Sounds like sticky caliper for one reason or another which has probably warped rotor(s). When that vibration occurs & you pull over to stop it, carefully touch rim to see if hot, or hotter than other side, which is a good indicator to tell you which one is sticking. Don't just change one though, do both.
that is provided it's just not a case of lubricating sliders etc, to get calipers moving freely.

If the brakes are fine, try rotating the wheels.
The tires it self could have a bad belt in it and have a soft spot. Try putting the front tires to the rear and the rear to the front, double check the tire pressure and see if the vibration go's away.
If the vibration is still there then the tires are good and it's the brake rotor or worn steering parts and or needs a wheel alignment. As the front end drops the toe-in changes geometry and may just be out enough to cause the wheels to vibrate.
Good luck and hope this help. I fine the brake rotors inexpensive enough at a parts store that it's better to change them rater then have then turned to a smooth surface again. If your handy try changing the rotors with new one's. Auto Zone has the parts and would give the step by step instructions to do the job.
