The first thing to check would be for a dirty or broken wheel abs tone ring,if rings are good then you may have a bad speed sensor , the best way to find the problem is to have the abs computer scanned for codes. the code or codes will tell you where the problem lies.

My Traxtion and ABS lights come on at same time and noise come from front area of car. What does this mean?

Depending on what car you have. It's as though you have an abs ring/sensor fault, the noise you are hearing is the abs pump working this is because the gap between the abs sensor and the abs ring is to close, which make's the abs control module think that the wheel has locked up. causing it to open the valves in the abs hydro unit to try take away the pressure from the side with the fault.

Why does my abs makes a noise when engine is off

Your ebcm internal relay is likely failed, possibly has a c0265 code in ebcm. Pull the abs maxi-fuse underhood fuseblock, abs and red brake light will come on, but noise should stop. There are several module rebuilders online (module masters comes to mind)

Audi a5 problems

I think the grinding noise you are hearing is the ABS pump coming in. Check the wheel speed sensor rings to check is they are the same. If they are different (number of slots} the ABS control module will be confused and starts the pump. I had that problem with my A6.

Load noise from engine compartment when brakes applied and almost stopped

This sounds like the abs system is coming on, this may be due to a bad wheel sensor, the best way to see if the noise is the abs is to remove abs fuse and drive, the abs light will come on but drive to see if noise is gone. by removing the fuse the system will shut down. the way it makes noise when close to a stop means the abs could be the noise, a bad sensor at the wheel would cause this. it looses the signal for a sec or two and the compuetr thinks the wheel is skidding and the rest are moving, so the noise you hear is the abs unit release the wheel. if the abs is the problem then the next step is to have a garage scan the abs module for codes. the codes will tell you where the problem is and which wheel. good day.

As I slow to a stop the ABS kicks on in my 2000 Audi s4

sounds like you got either a misreading(bad wheel speed sensor/abs sensor)
or a dirty sensor
or a broken reluctor ring on the axle
prematurely setting the abs to come on for no reason when your almost at a stop,,,,
i would take it to the shop,but its gonna be one of them things

Hi a had a service & they ran the diagnostic test as my warning light was coming on (ABS).This started when I had my brakes done & ever since then it comes on.They could find what the problem was....

Instead of pulling a fuse that will make ur abs not functional, let the scan be done and log on to

for more understanding of the error codes.

Good luck.

audis have a big problem with there front suspension struts.. they always fail and its a very common occurence. it sounds like this could be your problem.. it should be fixed as it can damage bearings in your car and other parts.. the noise should be coming from 1 side only tough.. unless both are failing. this might be the problem
