Ford maverik, 1996 2.4 petrol. Breaks failed once, abs activated, pedal didnt toucn floor, but it didnt wanna stop. Abs was working v hard but with little breaking. Would this happend if one of the breaks...

The most common reason would be a bad wheel sensor. the computer may have received a signal that one wheel was locking up and so it keeps releasing brakes until all wheels are spinning at same speed. this can get scary, your braking but car wont stop. have the abs computer scanned for any codes, the codes will tell you where the problem is, lets hope theres a code. otherwise you will need to wait until it gets worse or happens again. good day.

Hi, My 1992 Ford Fairmont EB has recently developed a nasty brake judder, most noticeable at open road speeds, and it can be felt in the pedal and the steering wheel. I have removed the front wheels and...


if you do not have any juddering when you are not braking, then it sounds like you either have a slightly warped disk, or an internal fault in the ABS unit.

the most likely is a warped disk, the warp may not even be visible (my last one wasn't) but can still cause a nasty judder. take the disks off and get them measured properly at machine shop.
if they are ok, then the ABS system will need to be checked by a qualified mechanic with the specialist equipment needed to test the system. the system is NOT user servicable. unfortunately this would not be something you can do yourself.

i would recommend getting this problem sorted out as soon as possible, as any braking system fault carries the risk of brake failure.

hope this helps.

sounds like you are getting a false ABS activation. Check the axles at the outer cv joints to see if the sensor rings for the ABS are cracked. A common problem.

I get brake judder t low breaking speeds on my 607. Feels like the ABS is kicking in. Pads and disks recently changed. Could it be a sensor faulty?

Next time you park up the car, put your hand on the wheel trims and they should be slightly warm. If you find that one of the front wheels are hot, then suspect the brake calipher. If it turns out to be a problem with the rear brakes, then they are binding if they are hub brakes and not disc.
