I am going to replace the front brake pads on my 2005 MPV. I have never replaced pads on an ABS system. Are there any tricky details I should be aware of?

How to reset brake lite on my 2005 X type jaguar?


which brake warning light is on? the xtype does not have pad wear sensors fitted. so i guess you mean the abs light or the handbrake light.more than likely its the abs light and the common problem is the reluctor rings on one or the other of the rear outer constant velocity joints corroded/ fell off get the fault codes out of the abs module to help.

Why my front brakes are overheating after I replaced/serviced the rear brakes pads ?


Several possibilities exist. Most likely is that you did NOT open the bleeder valves in the rear calipers when you retacted the pistons in the rear calipers. This forces old, dirty, contaminated brake fluid back up into the system. This debris is now stuck in either the ABS control unit or the master cylinder and is causing the front brakes to be slightly applied at all times. You can try to THROUGHLY flush out the brake fluid to remove the contamination. It will take about a gallon of brake fluid to do this. That "might" fix the problem. Otherwise, you need to figure out if the problem is with the master cylinder or the ABS control unit and replace the bad unit.

Abs light staying on


The ABS light comes on when there is a malfuntion in the ABS system, not when the brakes are low. On a Ford you more than likely have a dirty sensor or pick up ring on the back side of the rotor. And no you do not have to change the rear drum brakes when changing your front pads but they should be inspected.
Usually you will change 2-3 sets of front pads before the rears need to be changed.

2001 mazda mpv van brake light stays on after changing brakes and bleeding system how do you get the light to go off


check the master cylinder. there is a float in the reservoir that when the level gets low, it turns on the brake light. or check the ebrake...also on ABS systems you have to actuate the ABS module with a scantool to get out all the air in the system.

How do you reset ABS sytem for 2005 mazda tribute rear brakes


There is a split valve on the rear brakes ensuring the correct amount of pressure build up compared to the front ones. Check the fluid is pumping through correctly.
There is no need to replace the reluctor rings as you have no ABS error.

On 2005 ford escape a light on for check brake lamps


Hello, You will need to inspect your brakes to cure this problem. Be aware that the rear brakes have 2 systems in them, a service brake and an Emergency brake.

What happens usually is that debris from a failed brake pad has fallen into the Revolution counter on one of the wheels. This confuses the ABS unit and activates a Warning light. Another possibilty is that you have a Brake fluid leak and need to fix the leak and replace the fluid.

A shop with the proper scanner can hook up to your vehicles' ABS system and it will reveal which wheel is causing the alert. The remaining way without a Scanner is to pull off the wheels and manually look at the Brake hardware behind each wheel.

The warning lights are usually accurate and this is not a repair to delay.

I have a 2004 Mazda MPV with some wierd brake issues. I found what appeared to be a bad caliper on front passenger side, and replaced with a new one, yet this same wheel continues to seize up. What is...


If the caliper is seizing and it is not the caliper it is the module that controls how the brake fluid is distributed. I don't have my book in front of me at the moment but when you look under teh hood on teh drivers side you will see a block that has the brake lines coming out of it. That is part of teh ABS system is one is installed and is a master brake control hub if it ABS isn't installed. being that new I would assume it was equipped with ABS. There are a couple of ways you can test if this is teh problem. If I remember correctly the MPV brakes with all 4 brakes, that means you can, as a temp test, switch the lines to see if the caliper problem changes to the different caliper. If it does then you know for a fact it is that unit and not the caliper. Also, something to consider, the caliper that is locking maybe locking because the problem is actually the caliper on the opposite side. If the caliper on the left front is stuck in the open position, on occasion that will cause too much fluid pressure to the right front giving you the impression the problem is the right side and it isn't. This is rare but certainly a possibility. As a general rule you should always replace Calipers in pairs. If you replace the right front you should replace the left front, same with the rear calipers.

I replaced the pads on my 2005 Honda Accord. I had


ABS only senses if the wheel is spinning or not.
"Thumping sound" sounds like a bad problem. I've not had thumping sound from my front brakes ever.
I don't know how a caliper could cause thumping.
Is everything installed correctly and do the brakes stop the car??
