If not take a drive down to AutoZone and ask if they can check for any malfunction codes and let me know what they are , this is a free service that AutoZone will do for you in most states .

had it checked by a reg. mach. again no codes.

Expert:  Greg replied 2 years ago.
Ok Deano.

You will need a scan tool with live data and in ABS live data go for a drive and check the sensor are giving out the correct MPH and not showing different .

Then if all is showing the same remove the ABS 40 amp fuse and retest ,do you still have the same problem or is all back to normal .

With the ABS 40 amp fuse removed the ABS light should come ON.

Greg
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


just did all the brakes 2 weeks ago. it looks dirty in the resivor .

Expert:  Greg replied 2 years ago.
Hi ,

Deano remove the brake fluid bottle and dump the fluid, clean out the bottle ,
replace and refill ,then bleed the brakes , starting from the rear right the the rear left
then go to the front right then front left .

The go for a test drive ,

What i would do is remove the two rear brake drums and check the condition of all moving parts ,check that they are not sticking, check that the brake cylinder pistons move in and out freely . if all good replace .

Then check the condition of the front brakes , the sliders must move freely and the pistons must go out wards (by pressing on the brake slowly ,One side at a time )
and be able to push them back in freely , if not O/H the brake calipers.


This service should sort out your problem if not then please get back to me with the answer box below as you have done in the past .
