You know I would find a good mechanic and ask him to look at your power brake vacuum booster.
These used to have an external check valve in the vacuum line, which on a Ford I had would regularly split from vibration, and cause a problem similar to what you speak of. when I say good mechanic I do not mean a pimply faced kid at autozone who was making pizza last week.

The only real way to find out what is going is to have a diagnostic scan. You can go to auto zone and have it scanned for free but im pretty sure their scanners are for motor only, not abs. You need an abs scanner. Any garage should be able to scan. It could range in cost from$35 to$100 for a scan. Abs light could be a as simple as wheel sensor. The brake warning concerns me though. I would check your brake fluid. When was the last time you had new brake pads put on. You may have worn the pads so low, you have run down the brake fluid.i wouldnt drive until i found out what is going on with the brakes. any other help needed, just ask.

abs stands for anti breaking system its something strting to go wrong with your brakes it throws that code until you fix the problem could be serious could be low break fluid find a honest mechanic shop most of them will tell you what it means free they can pull the abs code that tells them what it is good luck

My SRS, ABS, and Brake lights stay on. Sometimes the Brake light will go out but sometimes it will stay on. The SRS and ABS lights are always on. The car seems to be driving okay.


brake light could be a sensor wire or the pads are worn out ,the srs light could be the wiring connections under the front seats ,the connectors need a clean or rubbish under the seat has dislodged them.Abs light coming on could be caused by the low brake pads but its doubtful more like one of the metal toothed rings is loose on the drive shaft ,also could be low on brake fluid if the pads have worn down and the fluid level has dropped

the yellow light is warning you that a problem exsists with the abs. unless you are experienced with brakes and abs would highly suggest you take it to a shop.

My abs light stays on after a few mins of driving and stays on


I would scan it for body codes-eg. ABS codes. Just Brakes wouldn't be my choice for any repairs. Find a good ASE Certified local shop. Discribe the slipping,stalling and shuttering. Sounds more like a trans issue.

My 55 Kia sedona my red brake warning light comes on after a few miles and stays on until i turn off engine. Also comes on injunction with my amber ABS warning light


First I would check the brake fluid level to make sure there is enough in it.Most of all It seems you have a major problem with the the ABS system which turns on the brake light as well as the ABS light.Chances are you have a couple of wheel sensors that have gone bad.Do you hear a wrrrrrr sound that increases and decreases as you go faster and slower while your driving?

I would start by either replacing the abs switch or checking the present one to be sure it is ok. I am assuming there is disc brakes all four wheels. The pumping would indicate to me that the rotors are not running true or again the abs sys is trying to kick in. Hope this helps.
