Depending on what car you have. It's as though you have an abs ring/sensor fault, the noise you are hearing is the abs pump working this is because the gap between the abs sensor and the abs ring is to close, which make's the abs control module think that the wheel has locked up. causing it to open the valves in the abs hydro unit to try take away the pressure from the side with the fault.

On my 2005 pontiac bonneville se v6 i change the rotor and brake pads on my car annd i still hear noise on the right side of my car the anti lock light is still on to what that mean?


The abs light means the system is disabled. You would need to have it checked for trouble codes to proceed. The noise could be the speed sensor on one of the front wheels.

When turning left,rubbing noise in front left wheel area, had brakes & brake pads checked not a problem, also when go over a bump in road the check traction system light comes on( will go off &...


Since you indicate a rubbing noise and not a grinding noise when turning left ... check that all the plastic wheel well liner pieces are in the correct place ...including any access doors (if there are any).
It is difficult to say if the noise is related to your ABS/traction lights going weird while going over a bump. Usually this type of light issue means there is a partial bad electrical connection somewhere between the sensor on the wheel and the controller. It could be at the sensor or in a line connector somewhere.
I assume your brake person verified that the sensors are OK

LEFT FRONT WHEEL BEARING IS MAKING A REAL LOUD NOISE AND THE abs LIGHT IS ON. what COULD IT BE?


Well, start by repairing the obvious issue. ABS sensors are located in the same area, so when the bearing fails, metal filings go everywhere and mess up ABS sensing...

2004 Ford Explorer ABS light on constantly and


I just had the same exact problem. The ABS light was on constanly, and the 4x4 high light flashes about 8 times, turns off for about 2-5 minutes, then flashes again for another 8 times and keeps repeating. In addition, I was also hearing and feeling a grinding and clunking noise going in reverse, and the steering wheel was difficult to turn. I changed a bad hub assembly on the front driver side and everything went away...fixed! I wouldn't let anybody tell me that the ABS system and the 4x4 system are not linked together. In fact, my local Ford service department assured me that I had two separate issues. Well, I only had one issue and it was a bad ABS sensor. I hope my exprience helps you.

Speedometer and taq not working. and abs light came on at same time for a 1999 ford windstar 3.0. all stoped working and the abs light came on at same time.


If your speedometer is not working, that means your Vehicle Speed Sensor or VSS for short, needs to be replaced. The ABS light means your ABS sensors need to be replaced. There are 4 ABS sensors: Front driver's side, Rear driver's side, Front passengers side, and Rear passenger's side. Once you replace your VSS, it will start communicating with your transmission again, and the speedometer will kick in. Hope this helps.

Replaced front brakes ABS light comes on and


Hi:
The ABS light on means an ABS malfunction. You should be able to have a auto parts store scan your car and find out what code is tripped, for free, but my guess is that one of your front wheel speed sensors is out of whack, or dirty or something.
When the light is on, your normal brakes work fine, but you have no ABS, so your car will take longer to stop in emergency situations.

Grinding noise in front end and abs light came on


check wheel bearing play. if the play is excessive it will cause the abs sensor to come away from tone ring loosing signal, illuminating abs light.
