I have a 93 Buick Lesabre Limited which has been working fine for about
two years with the ABS light is on. Now recently after i replaced my
brake pads and rotors, my front left brakes are not releasing from the
rotors. I believe its just the left side because when I stop and get
out, only the left brakes are very hot, much hotter than the right
side. Also there is a weird burning smell coming from the left front
brakes. Does any one have any suggestions.
I second that - I haven't seen the "check valve hose" effect myself but I
come across a lot of reports. I had a Volvo eat a pair of pads in less than
a month because I neglected to lubricate the slides. Oops....
probably caliper, slide pins, maybe...........could be ABS module keeping
pressure on line. probably not, but easy to check first. open bleeder on
L/F brake and see if it has pressure with foot OFF brake
pedal......probably caliper as mentioned by another post.
I will check all of your suggestions tomorrow morning, I have just
noticed today the the screech pad for my F/L brake pad is already in
contact with the rotor when I just replaced the pads about three weeks
ago. Also is there a way to get the ABS codes from the ECM? I
unfortunetly bought a code scanner (CP9001 by Actron) for this car and
then a day later found out that its a 25 dollar jumper for the A to M
contacts on the ALDL. But, the book that comes with the scanner does
not list my car being capable to display flash codes for the ABS.
Well the brake line to the F/L caliper was fine, not twisted. I took
the caliper off and greased the boots and so far the F/L brake has been
working fine. Any knowledge about the ABS system?
