-i got an email from my g/f about her car...any solutions?
My car's brake warnings come on and off when I make turns. While I turn I
hear a "womp, womp, womp" noise with the movement of the wheels. Nothing
leaking and my breaks don't squeak when I break. A guy at work thinks it's
my ball bearings going out.
-This car just had its ball joints replaced within the past two years. I
think the warning lights have to do with old wiring, but i dont know what
the noise is.
The guy at work said 'muffler bearings'. :-( Free advise is worth every
penny you pay for it. That's what the Internet is for.
You may have a tire with a separating belt, or just need CV-joints, but
they usually click, not womp. Checked the lug nuts with the tire wrench?
Get somebody to observe the looks of your tires as they roll slowly.
Top up the brake fluid. That part is in the Owner's manual.
It would be nice if you quoted the post you're replying to. It's considered
good etiquette to do so. Plus it reduced guesswork for others who may not
have easy access to earlier posts.
Something just occurred to me here: Is this the BRAKE lamp or the ALB/ABS
lamp that's illuminating? This is a critical distinction to make.
Did you tell her to read the part in the owner's manual about how the
BRAKE light comes on when the brake fluid gets low? Has she checked the
lug nuts to see if a wheel is going to fall off? Sometimes the most
obvious things get overlooked.
