Customer Question
Just heard a pop...

Just heard a pop when stopping and the esp and brake lights came on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

2009 ram 1500 pickup. All disc brakes. Calibers all look good. Went around the block and brakes still working fine. Didn't see any leaks. Firm pedal.

Mechanic's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Dodge Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

You do have an answer?

Hello and welcome to just answer. You may have a failed wheel speed sensor or another ABS component failure. Do you have an auto parts store near you?

If you do, then drive the truck to them and ask them to read the diagnostic trouble codes in the ABS control module. Not the Engine codes. If there are wheel speed sensor codes, then replace the appropriate sensor. If there are other ABS rela5ed fodes then tell me what they are. Most auto parts storeswill do this for free.

What Customers are Saying:

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.
