Customer Question
I heard a flapping...

I heard a flapping sound can not determine where its coming from. Just replaced the engine battery now the abs and brake lights are lit up

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

Both are on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2002 e450 super duty rv

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

Nothing so far; we have had a rear tire fixed twice in the past month; I was wondering could it have anything to do with those repairs

Have you checked to make sure the mud flaps are not touching the tires? Also check the air pressure in the rear tires. Make sure the inner tire is not flat. That would be for the flapping the noise. As far as the abs, sometimes if the system had low voltage the abs module will store a code. I would recommend first having the codes cleared and seeing if they come back.

Please note that customer satisfaction is my number one goal. Also we can respond in this chat back and forth many times. I may be offline when you respond but I will promptly reply when I return.

Thank you for rating my assistance and for using Just Answer.
