Having problems with your 2000 Isuzu Rodeo ?

Rear ABS Light/Rear brakes drag sometimes

\015 Long Version: About a year ago, my 1993 Isuzu Rodeo "blew a seal" (don't know if it was a WHEEL seal, wheel cylinder seal, or what.) What happened was that the Rear ABS light on my dash came on when I had to brake real hard all of a sudden. Drove it a short distance further, smoke came from rear tires (axle oil or brake fluid, don't know). Tow truck took it to my local Midas shop. Midas had it for a day or two. They called and said they had fixed it, but ever since then, I have experienced the dash ABS light coming on, accompanied by rear brakes dragging.(I can tell by the extreme heat from standing by the rear tires.) I have taken it back to Midas several times and they said they have tried several solutions, but nothing has fixed this. They said they cleared trouble codes, replaced calipers, nothing has worked, (sometimes it has been WORSE after they work on it) and I let this go on too long to take legal recourse. On the other hand, my car with 15 year old Rear ABS technology is obviously beyond the scope of these "brake experts", so who would want a bunch of idiots to CONTINUE working on their vehicle?\015\012 \015\012Short Version: Driving my 1993 Isuzu Rodeo only on short trips during hot Florida days. Rear ABS light will come on when brakes are applied at one point, coupled with rear brakes dragging. Pull over, let cool for 10-15 mins, restart, good to go. (As long as there are no emergency or sudden stops-this will cause a repeat of the problem: Rear ABS light on/rear brakes drag.)\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 30-11-2020

Answers :

The only moving parts on brake's are caliper's and master cylinder.The rest are just pipe's. Dosent sound like the master cylinder as the two back brakes should lock not one. It still sounds like caliper's. Can you be sure they have changed them If it were mine I would get someone independent to check they have done the work they say they done.
You could have a collapsed brake hose going to one of the rear wheels or you may need a new master cylinder. Sounds like your brakes are not releasing when you push them. Assuming the wheel cylinders where replaced, this would be about the only other 2 options also assuming they put it back together correctly. :)
