I would take it in to get the ABS system serviced - you may have introduced air into the hydraulics or moved the ABS sensor out of position. If oyu have the power-assist brakes, you will notice that there isn't any - assist, that is.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 BMW R 1100 RT (ABS). The front brake

Because the fluid services both side evenly, you should only need to bleed the LHS. Just bleed it the same as you would a normal hydraulic system.

Put a small piece of plastic tubing over the bleeder valve, and make it as airtight as possible, I generally lock it with a piece of brass wire.
Place this into a jar with enough brake fluid to cover the bottom of the tube. Open the reservoir, it is easier with two people, open the bleeder valve, and pump like carzy, adding more fluid to the reservoir as required until no bubbles appear in the jar. Then lock off the bleeder valve and clean up the mess, after re-fitting the reservoir cover.

What is the proper way to bleed the brakes on this bike with ABS?

Hi,I had a yamaha fj1200 that had abs and when bleading the brakes I just blead the brakes in the normal way,I found that it makes it easyer to blead,open resouveor cap and top up and put a rag around the resouvor to protect any paintwork then get a bungie tie and slowly pump the brake lever slowly as not to creat lots of air bubbles in the system,then rap the bungie around the lever and handle bar to keep the lever pulled in,then go to the back caliper and put the tube in a glass and fill with brake fluid untill it covers the end of the tube,put the other end on the blead nipple a slowly open the nipple just so you can see the fluid coming out,when it stops flowing tighten the blead nipple and do this again untill all the air is out and you have clean fluid coming through,the do the same to the front,job done.
there is a self bleading tube with a valve on the end so that the air dose not go back in the system,there is also a brake bleading system on the market that is a self bleading system where you have tube that connects to the resouvor with its own lid, and a tube that runs from that to a bottle which you put the brake fluid in,and a tube runs from that to a connector like the one that is on a foot pump,that connects to a wheel wich supplies the presure to push the fluid through the system,so with this system all you have to do is open the blead nipple and lock it again when done.
I hope this was some help.
Ive explaned it becouse not every one knows how to do this,so sorry if im telling you how to suck eggs.

Replaced the brake line on the front of a silverado but now the back brakes don't work

you have to do an automated bleed with a scan tool.There is a section in the scan tool to do such a task.

Abs engages on routine stops, brake pedal low and stopping distance seems greater.

Sounds like you might have a bad ABS pump.
Or you can try and adjust the rear brakes.
And if it is just the ABS pump. You do not have to worried about not having brakes. The only thing you will not have is the sliding control or skidding control.
And that means in a panic stop all your tries will lock up

I have a 96 ford explorer xlt 4wd with ABS. When I bought it it had a broken back break line. I replaced the line blead the breaks and the breaks are spongy. I googled the issuse and found out it could be...

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

I relaced all brake pads on 2003 buick bleed brakes very little air my brake peddle still spungy and anti brake light stays on

you must re-bleed the system properly, especially the back brakes. Bring your vehicle to a local autozone to reset the ABS light or check for an ABS fault code and post it on fixya!!

How can I tell if I have abs on my 1996 Dodge dakota the abs and brake light is on and the brakes got spungy.

seeing an abs light is a good clue that you have that feature. Additionally, you will have a far more elaborate set of brake lines and devices attached to the master cylinder than you see on a non-abs vehicle.

Fixing brakes

Try bleading the brakes, sounds like you have in them. Than the ABS light should go out & you shouldn't have to worry about the fuses.

Can I replace a brake hose front and back on 95 escort easily???

Not a good idea, if vehichle has abs then you can't blead it properly and even if it did'nt without bleading system, air in lines can cause brake failure.

2000 chevy lunima rear brake line blew replaced brake line and bleed but anti-brake lite stays on

Chevys are bare to blead, especially if it has ABS. Chevy dealers actually use TECH 2 / their computer to blead ABS systems properly. With it, they open the ports in ABS module, which helps the brake fluid flow. Unless of course you have ripped the sensor wire for ABS by accident.
