Since the AntiLock Braking System utilizes the power (vacuum) boost to operate normally, the ABS indicator should come on if the booster fails. Yes, this means your ABS system is not able to function correctly, but neither are your standard brakes (as the extra pedal effort required to stop will tell you). however, your brakes DO WORK, so driving it to get the codes scanned shouldn't be too dangerous - just be ready to stand on the brake pedal with both feet and leave yourself plenty of room to stop by driving slowly and looking well ahead for stopped traffic. Once your booster is fixed, the ABS light should go off without any special reset or clearing of ECM memory. Good luck and happy motoring!
Are you not getting a check engine light ? Take your suv to auto zone and get them to check it for codes and post the codes I will check back later to see what codes you posted they will help in finding the problem. Thank you
I think you have a master cylinder issue. This has nothing to do with your brakes at the wheel. My suggestion would be to have it diagnosed at a chrysler dodge dealership and pay the diagnostic fee to be sure. They will hook up a device called a DRB III and can tell you in a few minutes what exactly the problem is. You are not obligated to service the vehicle there but you will know exactly the problem is. Then you have something to work with when you get prices for the fix. You definetly have a failure somewhere or your pedal would have remained where it has been in the past. If you feel this information has been helpful please leave me good feedback. If I can be of further assistance please email me at [email protected] and I will forward you what information I have. If you require a good mechanic I would be glad to find you one free of charge.
If you backup lights are not working as well, I would say check the fuse for the backup lights, if the fuse is good, see if you are getting power to that fuse. We had this problem and after weeks of searching and changing sensors, we found the backup light fuse was good, but not getting power. Ran a wire from that fuse to the cig. lighter fuse and all woprksf great.
