Sounds like you need to get your rotors turned. Or you need new brake pads, or BOTH. But i can almost promise you that is your problem. Hope this helps, James Booth

My ABS light comes on and goes off in my 2005 mariner. I sometimes notice a grinding sound and can feel the brake pedal shake when turning left or right. Only when the light is on.


check the hub/wheel bearing and your brakes the abs is part of your hub assembly and if hub damaged or failing will affect the abs system --also check the sensor and wiring sometimes debris damage the wire but with grinding and shake most probable is hub and a brake job

You had to leave something out, or you got a pad in backwards. The right front right,? it is not grabbing, just grinding, should be easy enough to spot, take the wheel off again and find the problem, Changing the pads should have nothing to do with the abs,. I don't know why the light would be coming on unless you have too much movement for the abs to work, or not enough. Check it out, hope this helps.

Loud grinding in front driverside brake when applied, the pads are only half worn and I can't feel any significant grooves in the roter


do u only hear the noise when braking? those vans r prone to wheel bearing failure. the noise will always be there and will get loude with speed. the other thing it could be is the backing plate behind the rotor. all u have to do is gently push/pull it away from the rotor.generally if the wheel bearing has failed and the van has ABS the abs warning lamp will come on from time to time the eventually stay lit permently.

Could possibly have a bad connection on a wheel speed sensor. This would cause an erratic reading making the ABS light come on because the system thinks a wheel is either slipping or dragging.

Abs brakes


does all break grab?? if so, the break master cyclinder need attention. if only one break grab then one of the break cyclinder need attention. the cyclinder is not backing off when the break is released.
do not keep driving the car if you don't fix the break. the car will lock up and going to cost you more.
