Abs light on , replaced calipers , master cylinder , pads , brakes still drag . So replaced master cylinder again , and again , and again . Now I have no brakes . Oh re did pads also again and again


The ABS system utilizes Sensors at the wheels, some form of modulator (the can release each wheel's brake individually) and a control module (could be part of the car's ECU).
If you're just replacing parts randomly, you will drop a lot of money and time and probably won't cure the actual issue.

Anti lock brake light came on. Right at time front pads were replaced.


Hi:
Most likely you have a wheel speed sensor that is dirty or damaged. you can clean them up with brake parts cleaner. You can scan your vehicle to see what sensor is tripped too.

Anti-Locks Growling


There was a recall on the ABS system on your truck. The problem was the ABS sensor on the front wheels were getting dirty and corroded causing a faults signal to the ABS module. The fix was to inspect the ABS sensor and clean them with brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. The ABS sensor and speed ring is on the inside of the front wheel hub, spry brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring with paper folded 5 times. I feeler gauge will work but put a paper between the sensor and gauge cause the sensor is magnetic and the gauge will stick. Look for damages to the lead wire to the abs, but i think that's all fine since you did not mentioned any abs light on. You may be even lucky with just a good spray of the brake parts cleaner. Good luck and keep me posted.

Anti- lock light


You have a bad abs sensor the reason it is going on when you move is the computer is trying to read the miles per hour on the wheels one of your sensors is not reading properly. Your regular brakes will work but your abs will not when the light is on. Have autozone check for codes they do this for free:)

Anti lock brake light.


The anti lock lights run off a sensor that is attached to the calipers. By changing the rotors and pads will turn this light off. The sensor is bad or dirty, you need to have it checked by a technician. I hope this helps. don,t forget to rate my answer,thanks
