SOURCE: 1996 Honda Odyssey strange, intermittent ABS problem

If you are absolutely sure that the all the abs sensors are good. Then the only other factors are the abs unit itself and the abs computer. Please have the system checked with a a scanner to make sure. Remember the only way to an ABS light will reset is by driving the vehicle and if every component of the system is fine the light will go out. Because your light is on there is a problem in the system and your abs is not functioning when the light is ON .Good Luck

check the fuel filter it sounds like it's pluged and causing too much back presure this is causing an over load in the fuel pump causing it to stop working or to presure lock

It has a fuel filter and a carburetor. It is possible that fule is barely getting by the filter to fill up the float bowl in the carb at idle, however when more fuel is needed at higher speeds it if can not pump fuel fast enough through the clogged filter.

Another possibility is that the gas cap is not venting fast enough. The next time it starts to sound like it's going to die, pull over as fast and SAFE as possible so you don't die, then open the gas tank listen. If it hisses like a soda bottle does then the gas tank is not venting properly. Usallly the gas caps can be cleaned, in some cases they need to be replaced.

Most motorcycle shops don't keep parts for bikes over 10 years old. check ebay or bikebandit.com or even old junk yards. If you buy from a motorcycle grave yard don't pay more than 1/4 of what it cost new, becuase that one might have the same problem.

The fuel pumps usually keep it at a specific pressure. inside the carbs there are little "bowls" that store fuel as well. they work just like a toilet. a little thing floats in this bowl and keeps it at a constant consistant level, only opening when the bowl gets so low. I attached a picture of your carb for your bike so you can see what the float bowl looks like you can also go to http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1997-honda-motorcycle-vt1100c-shadow/o/m9688#sch405015 to get any exploded diagram for your bike.mccoolstheat.gif Item (4) is the bowl. Item (3) is the little plastic floaty thing that keeps the fuel at the right hight. in between those two cylinder things that look like two hockey pucks is a valve that will open when it needs fuel. the pump only comes on when this valve opens. If the pump makes noise when you first turn the key in the on position it's probably not your pump. Don't tear the carb apart unless you have a rebuild kit. gaskets and o rings are one time use only. Let me know if you have any more questions I put this in simple terms as I could because I don't know your experience level. I can go more in depth if you need.

SOURCE: I am not sure it is a fuel pump problem but assume

I would check the electrical feed to the pump. A messy dangerous business to work on as it will pump fuel everywhere if you are not carefull
Hope it isn't the pump!!

Prime


Hi to prime your pump you fill the strainer basket with water and make sure all connections are tight with no leaks. Once you seal the lid turn on your pump and it should prime. If you have an issue you can force water through the suction line by putting a hose in the skimmer and force the water through your suction line. Time to Open the Swimming Pool

Pump motor will not turn over without manual priming?


All pumps need to be primed. The Self-Priming pumps still require water in the basket.
If water is not staying in the plumbing system when it is turned off, then you have a leak in one of the o-rings or the shaft seal.

Not self priming itself. when it turns off the water pushes back out of the skimmer and pushes the basket up. it loses water and the pump cant re-prime itself.


PRIME PUMP, OPEN AIR VALVE ON FILTER. OR TAKE THE LID OFF YOUR FILTER AND SEE IF IT STARTS TO PUMP... YOU DO HAVE IT PLUMBED RIGHT? THE PIPE COMING OUT OF THE PUMP GOES TO THE FILTER !! I'M YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA. WHERE THE POOL IS ALWAYS OPEN

My Jet Pump Looses it's prime at night.


I assume the pump is not running at night. If the pump is higher than the pool, and the inlet and outlet to the pool are both under water, then you have a small leak. This could be allowing the water to leak out of the line. Or, if the leak is higher than the pool surface it is allowing air to leak into the line, which allows the prime to run down into the pool. If you found this useful, please vote. Thanks.

Hayward Self-Priming Pump with AO Smith 1 HP 56J frame motor. Stopped moving inground pool water. Added water to pump basket (low). Turned on pump, return jets sent "bubbles" into pool, stopped, then...


the pump must not have any air leaks in the suction side of it,, or it will just **** air and not water,,, water is very heavy you see, however i think its the impeller in the pump thats the problem,,,you should try to put water in the out let of the pump so you fill the pump with water first if its dryed out it may just wear out the impeller before it starts to **** water up, if this still dont work turn off the stop **** and strip out the pump to look at the impeller any wear on it and it will need a new one fitted
i hope this has help you, good luck
