It is most likely caused by one of the ABS wheel speed sensors, those little cylindrical nipples on the back of your rotors with the cable attached to them. One way to confirm it is to read out the OBD2 codes for the ABS system, but there are some checks you can do. Visually check all four cables and sensors , and make sure there is no build up on the sensors. Make sure that the connector they plug into has good connections. Look at the wheel speed sensor and make sure the gap between the sensor head and the sprocket is the same on all four wheels (should be no more than a mm). Disconnect the wheel speed sensor cable and use an ohm-meter to check the resistance of all four sensors (they should all be similar, but don't remember the value exactly). There is a way to just disable the ABS by pulling out the 60A fuse, but if you do that you may have to plug in a code reader and use a grounding jumper on the ABS electical access box (don't remember which pin) to reset the ABS faults, otherwise you won't be able to drive around like that because your engine rpm at high speeds will behave erratically. Also, do not drive around without fixing this problem or bypassing ABS completely because it could get you into an accident. My ABS problem was intermittent, and the ABS would sometimes kick in on completely dry pavement as soon as I touched the break pedal, it almost caused me to rear-end a car on couple of occasions.

SOURCE: Brake? Problem with 01 Saab 9.3

to begin i dont know what it means to say expensive or not how ever, all the lights at the same time could only mean one thing the problem could be in one of the diodes in your alternator is bad thus turning on all the lights on the dash board,

now regarding your brakes especially on saab;s shake or vibration is caused by uneven surface on the brake rotors (usualy the front) my suggestion is to replace the front rotors and the brake pads at the same time.

SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel

Hi! Although my collegue has pointed out the possibility of Discs being warped or out of true? Have you thought of the wheel balancing? also have you tried changing the rear wheels to the front? you may have a well imbalanced wheel or a Tyre with a side wall defective i.e. an Egg? (Buldge). Another problem on big tyres is they don't seat correctly, check the beading is settled in fully.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: While heavily applying the brakes at high speed the truck shakes.

If the front of the truck is doing all the shaking then the front brakes are doing all the stoppong. You need to check the rear brakes and change if neccessary. If they do not need to be changed then you should adjust them accordingly. I hope this helps. Don.t forget to rate my answer, thanks.

If the ABS light is on, that means there's a trouble code stored in the computer. If you clear the code but don't fix the problem, the light will just come on again. You have to fix the problem

I have a 2001 mazda tribute 4 wheel drive. All of a sudden the abs light and brake light came on and I hear something running under the good even when the key is off. What could b wrong?


Sounds like the abs pump. Anytime a red light comes on you should not drive it. Check and see if that vehicle has ever had a recall on the abs/brake system.

ABS light on, flashing 4wd 2005 Mazda Tribute


Even though your anit-lock brake system light comes on, dosen't mean your brakes will not work. All the ABS does, when applying the breaks, it compensates breaking power like pulsating your pads off and on the rotor in which without ABS your doing the same thing manually by pressing n releasing the brake pedal. And usually half the time it's a sensor that goes out and can be checked at your local autozone or auto parts store where they can plug into your car and will display a code that pertains to your ABS problem. Hope this helps.

On my 2006 mazda tribute, the abs light came on, wnet off and came back on again. the car has plenty of brake fluid. . .what could be wrong?


Hello and thanks for the question,
The anti lock brakes system is somewhat complex. There are many reasons as to why the ABS lamp flashed on and the back off ( ie. Wheel speed sensors, relays, poor power supply, bad grounds). There's really no other way of telling without haveing the codes retrieved from the ABS module( computer).
