My brakes sometimes go out for no reason. I changed the brakes and the rotors are fine . when im backing up i here this loud grinding noise and my brakes start going down to the floor. what could be wrong.


Your description sounds like a condition called overactive ABS. the grinding nee is the abs pump engaging which will also cause the brake pedal to fade. What is happening is the abs system thinks a wheel is locking up at slow speed even though all the wheels are turning. The abs engages to correct the condition even though there is nothing to correct. Some common failures that will cause this are a bad wheel speed sensor, incorrect wheel speed sensor gap, or a bad exciter ring. The easiest way to figure this out is with a higher end multi-function scan tool capable of reading abs data. With all four wheel speeds displayed drive the vehicle to duplicate the symptom. When the symptom occurs you should be able to see what speed sensor is dropping out. You can then focus on that wheel by checking the common failures. If you have any further questions i'll be happy to answer them.

The abs light is permanently on for past 6 months,though brakes working fine.about a month ago,brake fluid has slow leak and pperiodically red brake light appears but disappears as soon as you...


the red brake light tells you you are low on fluid or that your parking brake is engaged....the abs light tells you your anti lock braking system is malfunctioning. get the car up to 40mph and SLAM on the brake pedal. the pedal should pulsate and the wheels should as well. if the wheels lock up and you slide to a stop, your antilockbrake system is malfunctioning and you should have a certified mechanic check it out......tires plus and midas both do free brake inspections.......

What are probable causes for an ABS warning light to come on even though brakes feel normal?


you have a trouble code stored in the system and youll have to someone hook up a code reader to retrieve the codes to diagnose the problem,the brakes wont be affected unless you were involved in a vehicle skid and the abs wouldnt engage

At low speeds, there is a loud vibration when I press on the brake at random times or right afterwards. Sometimes the ABS light and Trac light come on. Then there is no vibration.


Sound's like the abs is trying to engage usually a wheel speed sensor or wiring to sensor cuases that.Have your repair shop check for abs codes and go from there.

Brake failure stop asap lights and stc/abs/brake/airbag light what does it mean and how bad is it?


I have had the same problem with my car for 3 months now. It is the ABS module that needs to be replaces. Ignore the stop ASAP light the brakes will still function as standard brakes. You just don't have ABS brake functionality or STC when those lights are on. Your car should still drive fine. Go on line and order a rebuilt ABS module for about $200 and the problem is solved. Hope that helps.

Jeep Cherokee 1989 brakes not working


abs module shouldn't keep the vehicle from stopping but the light will come on if there is a leak in the system you could simply disconnect the module to find out though I would check the master cylinder and calipers/wheel cylinders though look for leaks on the floor board (under the brake pedal) around the wheel make sure when you bleed the brakes you only add new brake fluid dot 3 or 4 any water or contamination can cause failure+abs light a bad booster/and/or/vacuum line will cause excessive pressure on the pedal but should still stop the vehicle. if the vehicle was ever wrecked there could be kinked lines but not likely

2001 Audi S4 ABS engagement, electronic buzz and shudder


Your car, like mine, has suffered the usual ABS pump electronics failure.

I have an almost identical car.

There are some great threads on the net on repairing them, however the wires inside it are just shockingly small, hair sized, and not a job for even the best "DIY" solderer.

Replace the electronics module on the side of the ABS pump, it doesn't need the brake pipes loosening or anything. It is easy to swap.

Then your ABS will work as it should.

You will NEED to find a used unit, or have yours repaired though, new ones are rediculously expensive.

Great Car though.
