I would recomend tacking your alternator off and having it tested, it sound like your alternator is either bad, or going bad, and is draining your battery as well. hope this helps and good luck!

ABS light on dash is stuck on how do I get it off on a 95 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition


Unhook the negative battery cable for a couple of hours, then reconnect. If the code comes back, you may have a bad abs wheel sensor.

I own a 2006 saturn vue. My check engine light stay on and my anti-lock brake and traction control light come on about every couple of days then it goes out. I had it check with a scanner i think the code...


Have you driven thru any big snow piles/drifts/berms or deep mud etc? It sounds like your ABS sensor is/was damaged.

Get the EXACT code and reply.

Cheers,

ANTI LOCK BRAKES WORK SOME TIMES AND MESS UP OTHER


ABS has a sensor which is basically like a metal blade which sticks into the tire attachment into grooves.As the tire turns,the blade senses the RPM.When you brake suddenly,the sensor tells the computer when your tire is about to skid and releases brake pressure.It applies and releases brake pressure very quickly so as not to cause a skid.One of these may be going bad.A computer check can tell you quickly,but you probably know about computer application pricing.If you want to buy one and switch tires every couple days you could probably find out,but it would be very tedious.Good luck.

Battery goes dead after a couple days. was told it could be anti-lock break module...how hard and expensive are these to replace


Your battery going dead every couple days has absolutly nothing to do with your anti-lock break module. (unless it is causing a short or something and staying on-which i doubt.) Have you ever thought that maybe the battery may be dead and old and need replacing. you should test to see how strong the battery is first with a volt meter or load tester. batterys go dead all the time- more so this time of year where it starts to get cold out. If your battery is new or just got it. (usuaslly 2 or 3 years you should be fine). - it may be your alternator isnt charging the battery anymore. Make sure all dome lights are off when the doors are closed. or that nothing else is left on

2006 PT cruiser dies intermittently---batery light dies no wiper


Sounds as if the alternator is not charging the battery. Check the alternator for voltage it should put out around 13 volts at idle and normal operation. If it charges then the battery is defective. A good place to start is clean the battery cables to remove any corrosion and make good contact. Many an electrical problem has been solved by cleaning battery cables.

Anti lock brakes light


Good Day,

Usually that indicates bad ABS sensor or ABS component in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.

hope this helps

Battery not charging


Sounds like the cells in the battery have shorted. It's probably shot. Does the car run once its jump started? Does it continue to run after the cables are removed, if so your alternator is ok and its the battery. Hope that helps.
