Having problems with your 1992 Dodge Dakota ?

Emergency Brake light and Anti-lock light show on the dashboard of my 1992 Dodge Dakota...thought it might be low brake fluid, but it looks ok. Just had new front brakes put on 2 months ago. What else might be the problem?

Answers :

Well sounds like at this point you need to have the ABS system scanned for codes.generally, whenever those lights come on one or both it is an indication of a malfunction in the ABS sys.could just be a inexpensive sensor so dont panic yet...just get it scanned and go from there. hope this helped ley me know have a good day Darrell

The front left brake is doing all the braking and is heating up. brand new caliper on both sides and new rotors and pads. Had to repair yesterday because the pad on the left was sticking to the Rotor badly. I am also hearing a faint pulsing soundwhen rolling at any speed now. (installed a new flexible brake line on the right as I thought that might be the problem) I'm at a loss... maybe proportioning valve problem? ABS and Trac off Amber lights are on.

My taillights do not work on my geo metro 91. they have not worked for a few months but i bypassed the problem by wedging a quarter between the front light and parking light buttons because i could not find any blown fuses. now the quarter does not work anymore and i hessitate to go buy new switches because i dont think the ACTUAL problem is in the switches as you do not have to access your parking lights normally simultanously with your front lights to also get you back lights.I took the switch

My 2006 F150 abs light would come on after driving it for a few miles. I changed the rear sensor and it still didn't correct the problem. I had the brake pads replaced and cleaned the front sensors.
