Customer Question
2005 Crossfire BAS ESP...

2005 Crossfire BAS ESP light was on, brakes go down to the floor. Can pump up to work, and no signs of leakage

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the light been on for some time?

It was, but now not on. Car was stored for winter, and only used a couple of times

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Crossfire yourself? What have you tried so far?

Actually, we were going to trade in, but don't want to if it has issues

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is it worth to repair, or not worth the difference

Do you have the code numbers for the abs light?

Since these lights are on it means there will be diagnostic trouble codes stores in the Brake control module. You need to have this scanned to see why the lights are on. That is the first step.

The master cylinder could be leaking brake fluid into the brake booster internally. Remove the brake booster vacuum hose from the booster and use a long zip tie and insert it into the booster. You will be checking for brake fluid in the booster and using the zip tie as a dipstick.

The next thing that could cause this would be a problem in the abs control module.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
