Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport my abs light is on and when i apply my breaks the peddle goes way down and there is a bumbing sound like the breaks are skipping


check the fluid level in the brake master cylinder as it appears that the abs pump is running short of fluid to pump. Check for leaks at the wheels and broken brake lines.

1999 Ford Explorer 4WD v6 when I come to a complete stop and have my foot on the break pedal I hear this thump noise coming from the rear end and sometimes it thumps when i let off the break pedal and go...


Look for a broken trailing arm, or loose bolts or degraded rubber grommets on it. This is a piece of the suspension that goes from the frame to the strut. It holds the strut in place vertically. When broken or loose this truck can bang around back and forth. It could also a a worn out universal joint which can be hard to detect because even the slightest amount of play can cause noises. Perhaps even a loose brake caliper. But the gears in the differential may be becoming worn and sloppy as well. You can check up a rear tire and try moving it back and forth to see how much played there is in the differential and universal joint.

95 silverado 4WD ABS light


The best way is to get a scan tool and monitor the speed sensors while driving and see which one is dropping out.One other thing is when you replaced the sensors,did you clean the surface area real good?You have to remove all the rust from the surface where the sensor seats.Because sensor has to have the correct gap.When rust builds up the gap gets to big and will cause the light to come on and the brake pedal to pulsate.The other thing is the ring inside the hub bearing will have a hair line crack in it and this will cause the same result.This means you have to replace the hub bearing.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2002 Ford Exlorer XLT


That year Explorer was notorius for rear ABS sensors going bad. If your ABS light is on as well this may be your problem. Also they were notorious for 4WD modules going bad. This problem is more expensive. I would advise you to have it checked on a computer to see what codes you have.
