Speed reading may be a bad vehicle speed sensor or broken / disconnected wire to that sensor ~ it should also light up your check engine light ~ confirm by using a scanner to get a trouble code

abs brakes, similar process ~ need a scanner to find out which sensor went bad or wire disconnected to it or visual inspection of those sensors

Anti-lock function on brakes is triggered by applying brakes while steering wheel is turned hard over


Sounds like you are losing wheel speed signal when under hard turns. This is commonly caused by the harness at or near the wheel speed sensor has a bad connection of there may be a break in the wiring that intermittently loses signal to the ABS module and causes the anti-lock function to happen, (loss of wheel speed is like wheel skid as far as the ABS module is concerned) It is usually necessary to have a scan tool to monitor the data and read codes on the ABS system. You may have to take vehicle to shop that is capable of diagnosing the problem.

Grinding noise in front brakes of a 1993 olds cutlass supreme


Assuming this vehicles brake linings are ok and not worn out, it sounds like you have an abs rotor fault. The abs is working while your are braking because it cant read the road speed correctly. So you are feeling the abs motor working.

My ABS lights on in my car


Hello
Whenever the ABS warning light comes on in the instrument cluster and it stays on it means the systems electronic control module (computer) has detected a problem in one or more of the inputs to the module; an ABS fault code is present as long as the ABS light is on. So what must be done to correct this? You must have the ABS electronic control module scanned with a special tool to read the fault code, and then a trained technician will diagnose and repair the defective part or wiring. Most times this is a wheel speed sensor (one for each wheel) that gives an erratic signal. While the light is on all you have is regular non-ABS brakes.

ABS light won't go off recently had both front wheel bearings replaced on a 1999 gmc jimmy - the ABS light came on immediately during a test run, i told the mechanic about it and i was told it would...


There are ABS wheel speed sensors on the front wheels behind the hubs. It is possible if the hub where replaced either the pick up ring mounted to the hub itself was not installed or might have purchase non abs hubs or they just did not switch the wheel speed pickup ring on the new hub. Another thing could be either the wheel speed sensors are mis adjusted or when they replaced the hubs they hung the spindle by the abs wire and either pulled it out of socket or messed up the wires internally. Here is a basic abs system http://www.ehow.com/how_8511860_diagnose-abs-brakes.html if you have any other questions please let me know. Also please leave good feedback.

I have an 03 beetle and my esp and abs lights have come on the breaks seem fine and i haven't kerbed it or anything ?????


the esp and abs lights are on because there is an electrical fault in the abs system. this is not a safety concern and your brakes will function properly however in order for the lights to go off you will need to have it diagnosed with a scan tool. the problem is probably a bad front wheel speed sensor.

I have a 99 Discovery II and the Traction Control, Hill Descent Control and ABS lights have suddenly come on. What is the system fault or, in the alternative, how can they be reset?


Can't be reset if your ABS system or some component is faulty. check speed sensor on the wheel bearing, is there any rubbing or dull grinding noise coming from the front wheels? could be the entire bearing and speed sensor assembly has gone bad. this would cause all these faults to appear as that sensor triggers all these events in order to slow your vehicle while it downshifts itself and applies breaking to control the vehicle as a part of the stabilization system. The alternative is that the ABS system is not functioning properly and the trac control and hill decent systems are being deactivated as part of the fault. If the system cant apply breaking then the systems are rendered unavailable. the vehicle will stop but not using ABS just regular breaks. Check all ABS break fuses for damage.

Disconnecting the wires may consequently cause non function of ure vehicle speed reading as the system is dependant on your wheel speed suplied by ure abs speed sensors, it might also result in non starting depending on wheather or not the abs ecu is a main ecu or not, i strongly suggest you get hold of a proper wiring diagram and get sum one clued up to rather bypass the system by briging the concerned cercuits the proper way,
