Brake Sensor Problems in popular cars

Brake Sensor problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Brake Sensor problems reported in most popular vehicles.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Chevrolet Equinox

The vehicle having this issue was a 2005 Chevrolet Equinox. Experienced abs brakes kicking in at very low speeds (10 miles or less). Brought into dealer who replaced front two wheel sensors. Worked fine for 2 months and it started to happen again. Only this time, the truck was not stopping suddenly and almost caused numerous accidents. Brought into dealer a second time who had the truck for 3 days only to tell me they found nothing wrong. I brought the truck to another mechanic who replaced my front drivers side wheel bearing. Drove home from there with the same problem. Truck was brought to a 3rd and 4th mechanic who both admitted that there was a problem but nothing was being identified when scanned. Called chevy who contacted the original dealer. We played phone tag for several days with no final response. The truck has not been driven for 2 months as I'm concerned for my safety and others after many near misses. Was even pulled over by an officer who escorted me home. I cant continue to dump money into this vehicle that is almost 10 years old. I also cant understand why this has not been investigated when there are numerous complaints for the same thing through your website and a number of others. Literally thousands of complaints. Funny though that the recent malibu recall is having somewhat similar issues as I started to lose my taillights on a regular basis at the same time the abs system started acting up. Could just be a coincidence but should still be investigated just based on the number of complaints and the trial and error fixes we are all receiving. The failure date was Oct. 5, 2013.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Chevrolet Corvette

The vehicle having this issue was a 2005 Chevrolet Corvette. While making a left hand turn from a stopped position the right front brakes started to pulse and grab not allowing me to accelerate more than a crawl. Warning light on dash traction control / active handling illuminates. I was able to limp out of the intersection and come to a stop in a parking lot. With the steering wheel and wheels straight, I again tried to accelerate but the brakes still grabbed. I put the car in park and tried turning off the traction control and active handling by pressing the button on the center arm rest area. Still showing the same message and still not driving correctly. I then shut off the car and restarted. Back to normal driving. Two days later while turning left again, but this time while going 10 mph, I felt the brakes again start to pulse and grab but it corrected itself without me having to restart the car. I do have power telescoping wheel that does retract every time I exit the car. I brought it in to van chevy today but they found no codes and did say the clip that was installed as part of a recall was still in place. Other than replacing the steering wheel position sensor they do not know what to do or what is wrong. I have had many gm cars before but this issue really scares me. This brake sensor issue occurred 05/07/14.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Chrysler Pt Cruiser

The car was a 2007 Chrysler Pt Cruiser conv. Abs and stability control lamps illuminated, for the next week, the fault was intermittent. Workshop checked out fault, couldn't find fault with wheel sensors and couldn't reset fault. Developed into multiple instrument panel display indications, upto 10 flashing panel lights, and momentary power failure effecting all systems and engine. Internet including youtube states common problem not acknowledged by Chrysler. Some suggestions that ignition switch is fault but nothing certain. Car has only 37k miles so reluctant to start changing expensive electrical parts without guarantee of repair, I. E. Abs computer ecu, instrument pack etc. Looked at recent recall for gm, my Pt Cruiser cabriolet was manufactured in mexico in 2007. The parts involved in gm recall are delphi from mexico between 2005-7.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Dodge Dakota

At idle/park my 1996 Dodge Dakota 4x4 v8 5. 2l slt will sputter and sometimes kill the engine. Now I'm not sure if that's a safety feature so the engine doesn't over flood itself, but I've replaced the iac valve, pcv valve, distributor rotor/cap, and spark plugs with no improvement. I recent had a problem where the conditions out we're somewhat icy and mid turn into a parking lot I took a blow to a fire hydrant because the vehicle killed itself, meaning loss of power steering and power brakes. I was fine, but my vehicles body took the damage. Luckily the airbag system didn't deploy but this issue has been brought up a lot with the 1995-1996 Dakotas. And honestly I'm scared that the vehicle might do this while on the free way. Also, of 3 O2 sensors that's just above the catalytic converter, all three have left the vehicles check engine light on and have tested faulty. I have yet to return to the exhaust systems shop to see if they can fix it due to it being under warranty, but my mechanic said that it mostly because there's an unneeded amount of extra power going to the O2 sensor which is causing it to fault. Anyhow, I appreciate anything that can be looked at into this, because I do live on a hilly suburb and I rather not take the fault of my vehicle failing and damaging state, neighbors or even my own property, let alone myself getting hurt. This brake sensor problem happened on Tuesday, September 10, 2013.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Dodge Ram 1500

The vehicle is a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. While driving Saturday, 11/23/2013, I noticed a vibration and humming noise coming from the front of my vehicle. Also, when I turned the car would croak or moan. I could tell something was wrong because my brake pedal became very spongy and had to be pressed in fully in order to stop the car. I began to head home with the truck as I did not want a safety hazard where I could not stop the vehicle. I also noticed that in order to steer straight, I had to hold my steering wheel approximately 30 degrees left. Upon getting the truck home I immediately saw my problem. My front passenger tire was sitting in the wheel well on an angle. Large amounts of smoke were pouring out of the undercarriage, and rubber goo was leaving a trail where I drove. I jacked the car and removed the wheel, and could see even more. My wheel hub assembly was separated and broken. This caused my tire to sit on the hub crooked and lean against my control arm. The heat from this friction was so intense that it melted my cv boot, which is why I had a rubber goo trail. It also melted the abs sensor on the wheel hub itself. Causing my abs to go out. The hub itself had a piece completely fallen off, as if a weld broke. The heat also warped my rotor, and cracked my brake pads in that side. Luckily, I did not have any wheel separation or total failure of the braking system, causing crash or injury. I was barely able to utilize braking and drive home at about 20mph with hazards on. The wheel hub assembly has been recalled in several year Dodge Ram 1500s, including 2004, 2006, and others, for bearing issues. However Dodge claimed it was only a faulty part in 2wd applications. Now we know this is not true. I have a 4wd ram that had the hub assembly fail and a partial braking failure. I am out of room, but I have pictures of the parts broken on the car, and pictures of the removed parts as well. This problem occurred on Saturday, November 23, 2013.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Ford Explorer

The vehicle having this issue was a 2011 Ford Explorer. Crash was involved with this problem. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1FMHK7B81B_. Air bag light has been on several times. Each time I have taken the vehicle in for service and they tell me each time they fixed it. I drive it some and the light comes back on. It is back in the shop for the tenth time I have paper trails and pictures to prove it. I ended up making an appointment the last time but before I got there I hit a deer end of March at 60 mph and the air bag didn't go off once the body work got done I took it into the Ford shop and they said there was a faulty sensor were the deer hit. They replaced it the I drove it eight miles and the light came back on so I turned around and they are telling me that there are no codes this time I have tried to get them to buy it back and they will not. The rear brakes have locked up four time and they have replace them each time and it continues to do the same with them also. It was Thu., Mar. 14, 2013 when this brake sensor issue occurred.

car   Brake Sensor problem of GMC Yukon

The car involved was a 2005 GMC Yukon denali xl. Winter 2014, connecticut - backing out of driveway peddle felt mushy and going down farther than normal. Drove son to school quarter mile to school and noted the lack of braking ability. Luckily rolling stops and keeping distance from other cars allowed me to get back home. Looked under car, dripping brake fluid from under middle of card. Had the sense to have it towed to the dealer; for the $2400 estimate, they also said that my transmission lines were leaking so estimate also included the labor/parts to replace both sets of lines to fix both line related issues. I've also had the miss pleasure of having to replace the transmission ($3500) this year as well. Slipping and eventually it was going to cause an accident so had to open the wallet for that. Another issue (electrical) - I shut the car off with the blower motor on (heater in the winter) and the blower motor stayed on even after the car was shut off, no keys. It continued to run and would have drained the battery had I not disconnected the battery. Pulling the fuse had no effect. ($600) I have also had to replace both the front airbag sensors in the front bumper. One went and two weeks later the other went. No impacts, they just died. ($1200 for both). I have also had to replace the rear air shocks ($2500) I bought this car used (supposedly gm certified)) from a chevy dealer not more than 3 years ago with 75k miles. I now have 99k miles. As I sit and type this all down for this submission, I realize just how much has gone wrong with this car & matches up with other owner statements on this website. This brake sensor issue occurred 02/07/14.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Acura TSX

The car is a 2009 Acura Tsx. The VIN of the problem Tsx is JH4CU26659_. The inner rear brake pads went from 6 in September to 1 - worn to the sensor in less than six months. The front brake pads remained at 8 and the outer rear brake pads were 6. Mechanics with whom I have spoken have explained that the rear brake pads should not be wearing out prior to the front since the front brakes do most of the work. They also indicated that such uneven wear is not normal. Of most concern to me is the safety issue. Except for an intermittent noise like a little stick in my right rear tire well, I had no idea there was a problem. Although it wasn't time for my regular service, I contacted my mechanic to make sure my car was ready for a road trip I was taking that weekend. Because I mentioned the intermittent sound, they looked under the car and discovered the problem with the brakes. Had I not been cautious, I could very well have had a serious problem on the road without ever anticipating it. While the Acura dealer insists that such wear is not unusual for these cars, I find it very concerning that my brakes should be worn out in this way at 36000 miles. With previous cars, I have never needed brake pads until around 80,000 miles. It is upsetting to me to have this experience with a car that is renowned for its durability and to not have it covered under warranty. It seems odd to me that my mechanic and the other mechanics with who I consulted don't find this to be "normal wear and tear" and yet Acura does. Had I driven the car without checking, I would likely have had brake failure, destroyed the rotors and required a much more costly repair job. Brake failure could also have meant an accident and injury, not just to my car and its passengers, . That little intermittent sound that I heard was so intermittent that my passengers never heard it - were it not for the mechanics in my family, I might not have noticed either. The failure date was Feb. 16, 2012.

Back in 2010 Infiniti changed out the brake booster and delta sensor when this same occurrence happened with the braking system. Now 4 years later it happened again which means they are still installing a faulty part. It is at the dealership now and because it is out of warranty they will not cover the $2100 job although they admit this is a normal occurrence in this vehicle. This problem occurred on Friday, January 10, 2014.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Infiniti QX56

The vehicle was a 2006 Infiniti Qx56. I was driving with my family in the car and exiting off the highway. When tried to stop for approaching traffic my brake warning like came on the brake pedal became unresponsive. As I pressed the brakes I could hear a broken spring kind of sound and it felt like the abs system was trying to kick on. The car did slow but the brakes were at about 20%. To avoid hitting the approaching cars I had to swerve off the road. We were able to get the car to a stop but clearly would hit the cars in front of me if I were not able to get off the road. While we did not have a crash I did notice two large scrapes on the right side of the car from rubbing against the rail which I did not notice till late the day after. After turning off the car the brakes worked like nothing ever happened. We took the to a local dealership the next morning and we told that "yea that has been happening" with that model. When I searched the internet for the error code I was given (c1179) I found almost 200 hundred people with a similar story to mine. My vehicle has been dealer serviced with every recommenced service. While I understand that cars are machines and they do fail, brakes failing like this due to a bad sensor is a death waiting to happen. As a loyal Nissan/inifiniti customer I am very disappointed that this well document issue has not been proactively addressed. For those reading this at the NHTSA please understand that someone will die due to issue. Review the 16 claims on your site today, it is just a matter of time. Lawyers wont touch this unless you have a severe personal injury and Nissan wont act till lawyers take suit. . . You do the unfortunate math. Nissian/inifiniti - I just expect more. This issue happened on Jun. 5, 2013.

Talk about money pit!! brakes: yes. Front brakes have locked up and caused issues. Discs and calipers have been replaced. Also, driver's side break light is not functional. The tail lights work, but once the brake is depressed, the right and top lights work, but the driver's light is off. And just for fun. . . I've had to replace both side mirrors due to internal springs failing as well as both front window regulators and motors. When I went to autozone to get parts, they correct window regulator was under the 2000 model year; 1999 did not fit. We are gonna get rid of this Jeep. . .

I know now from what I have read online, that this a mayor situation with many Land Rover owners, but the automaker refuses to acknowledge the problem, what are they waiting for, for people to die due to this deffective yaw rate sensors? I hope that you can do something for all Land Rover owners and finally get Land Rover to acknowledge the problem and correctly address them.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Lexus Gs450h

Car: 2007 Lexus Gs450h, factory certified. Had a serious issue which warrants a recall of all affected cars, which may not be limited to the GS hybrid. This happened only a couple of weeks after buying the car. Per Lexus, it is a defect which will impact all of their hybrids, and probably all Toyota hybrids as well. While driving down the freeway at rush hour, the car turned itself off. No power steering, no power brakes. . . No power period. Fortunately, I used to drive race cars professionally and was able to handle it, but I suspect that most drivers would have crashed. Because the push-to-start button doesn't work unless you're in park, I had to come to a full and complete stop, in the middle of the fast lane of the freeway. Not safe. To be clear, there were no injuries etc. , but, speaking as a pro driver, the situation would normally have resulted in severe injury or death. Per Lexus, it appears that the car computer shuts off the car when there is a fault in a sensor which is supposed to monitor the transmission. They consider this to be correct behavior and refuse to fix it. My perspective: you should not design a car to turn itself off when it's moving at a high rate of speed just because a sensor has a glitch. The worst case scenario of damaging the transmission is not nearly as bad as the typical case scenario of losing steering and brakes on the freeway. Recommendations: (1) compel Toyota to recall all affected cars to fix that "feature" so the car doesn't shut itself off unless the engine is imminently about to explode or something like that, and (2) if the car is powered off while moving, allow the push-to-start button to work without first parking the car. This brake sensor issue occurred Nov. 15, 2010.

Car then shuddered violently w/ loud screeching noise, snapped to right & lost control. Attempts to counter steer were ineffective as car slid on hard-packed snow for approx. 100¿ & struck snowbank at 20mph. Fortunately snow was very light, dry and fluffy & deceleration was reasonably gentle. No major damage occurred & air bags did not deploy. After extricating, car could not be driven. An observer standing outside the car noted front right wheel would roll for a few feet, then lock up. Shut engine off & restarted (attempting to reset systems). At this point both ¿bas esp� and ¿abs� warning lights illuminated (they were not lit previously). Car still could not be driven - front right wheel would lock up after a few feet of travel & had to be towed away. Later determined incident caused by yaw sensor failure. Front right wheel had been locking & sliding on hard packed snow then suddenly regained traction when it crossed a dry patch of pavement, causing the rapid directional change & loss of control. Very dangerous. If car had hit a tree, parked car, etc. Instead of soft snowbank this would have been a serious crash likely w/ injury. Unacceptable & unsafe! please reopen investigation! this is a potentially very dangerous system! sensors should continuously self-check & shut system off completely if failed. This will kill someone eventually if nothing is done!. This brake sensor issue occurred January 3, 2014.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Mercury Villager

The vehicle involved was a 2000 Mercury Villager. The vehicle had a crash. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 4M2XV12T2Y_. Total brake fade, not pedal, brakes just wouldn't hold. Had normal pedal. According to an accident investigator I am talking to, he has at least one other case similar. This involved a 2001 Nissan SUV. In that case it was found that the right front wheel sensor was not sending the proper signal for a failure(which would have disabled abs) but not proper signal for abs to work. This issue happened on 05/18/01.

Estaba en la autopista y me prendió la luz del abs y el automóvil se sentía aguantado cuando me tocó frenar el automóvil DE momento no frenó bien. Después procedí a llamar al servicio DE remolque DE la Mitsubishi y buscaron el carro a mi casa. El 01/14/2010 el dealer le encontró falla en sensor y se lo reemplazaron. (mn116244 sensor, rr abs,rh). Pero en el 2011 volvió prendió la luz del abs se le hizo el cambio DE las pastilla DE freno y se limpiaron todos los sensor y la luz se apagó. Ahora en el 10/14/2013 volvió a encender la luz del abs pero cuando corres para atrás se apaga y cuando conduce hacia el frente se queda prendida.

The car involved was a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5N1AR2MN9D_. Vehical at 5400 rpm on level road would only achieve a speed of 41 mph, this was on a highway paused with a posted speed limit of 65 mph. Vehicle paused, shuttered and engine seemed to be working but transmission would not engage completely. We felt that we could have been rear ended and killed. This was three days after Nissan had replaced the transmission for shuttering at 19 mph over a six month period. After stopping several times the vehicle reacted as close to normal as we would expect, just in time to get home. We have brought this vehcle to the dealer ship for passenger side airbag light showing it was off, when it should have been on, for back up sensor acting as though off but actaully off, the smell of antifreeze and no leaks and last the brakes delaying. Nissan continued until recently stated that it was normal. There are numerious sites stating these same issues. We could have been killed, this is serious, no power on th expressway. It was May. 18, 2014 when this brake sensor issue happened.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Nissan Armada

The vehicle was a 2004 Nissan Armada. My wife was driving about 30 mph in the evening and all of a sudden with no accident no fender bender or bump the side airbags deployed for no reason, shaken and scared she called me to inform me of the situation, thankfully my kids were not in the car at the time! I began to do research and found that I wasn't the only one, this airbag sensor that is bad on all Armadas were recalled except the 04 model according to Nissan customer service, so initially I was appaled, the nice lady at Nissan said that in order for me to do anything further I would have to pay for a diagnostic out of my own pocket like the other poor guy on here who payed and was out of a vehicle for about 3 weeks just to end up in a situation where they won't do anything about it after they find that the sensor states vehicle was in a roll over accident even though it wasnt!!! what are we as consumers to do in a bad situation like this? car has about 137766 miles driven,. This problem occurred on Monday, March 3, 2014.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Subaru Forester

The vehicle involved was a 2013 Subaru Forester. Crash was involved with this problem. In my vehicle, I have a backup camera and I'm thankful for it but also I strongly wish that vehicle had that backup sensor system as well with the increasing beeping sound as the vehicle gets closer to an object. Vehicles really need to be equipped with both the camera and backup sensors in combination to be safe. I had a small accident backing up even though I had the camera because my eyes are moving back-and-forth as I'm a maneuvering the car backwards so that I as well do not hit an object on the side. Thanks you for considering my request, from my personal experience I know that it will save lives and injuries. It was Monday, March 31, 2014 when this brake sensor issue happened.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Suzuki Verona

The car was a 2004 Suzuki Verona. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was KL5VM52LX4_. Bought this horrible car for $4,300 of financial aid money with "as is, no warranty". Owner said he'd fix the problem but did not even though he's not obliged to, but he went against his words for fixing the car. He said his mechanic will buy the new hose for the engine which he did, but did not put in a filter as said. Then they did not fix the oxygen sensor or put on new brake pads or rotors as said. The brakes and rotors are severely damage, and the oxygen sensor is busted. The coolant & anti-freeze tube burst, the left blinker blinks really fast, the smog light button doesn't work, the wheel alignment is off. It is just a terrible car I have bought wrongly. It was 09/10/2013 when this brake sensor issue happened.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Volkswagen Tiguan

The vehicle was a 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Volkswagen Tiguan is WVGBV75N79_. My wife's vehicle was parked yes she spilled water on that area, thank god it was parked. From what I have read about these particular e brakes they seem a very bad design. I knew when we purchased the car in 2009 just knowing autos this was a terrible design and feature especially the placement. I read enough online after today this has to be a recall I have had previous recalls on both my vw seat belts, misc. Sensors both a couple of times each yes vw took care of it but this situation is far too dangerous. This brake sensor issue occurred 08/27/2013.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Volkswagen Tiguan

The vehicle is a 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan. There was crash involved with this Volkswagen Tiguan. First, this exact same scenario also happened in October 2010. The first incident occurred when I was driving the vehicle, and now this time, when my husband was driving the vehicle. Both of us, each have 30+ years of driving experience and neither of us have ever been involved in a crash or experienced this type of loss of control in a vehicle, ever. Both incidents occurred while turning a corner at approximately 5 to 15 mph in approximately 1- 3 inches of new snow. The car slid with total loss of steering and brakes, smashing into the curb, breaking the axle, control arm, steering knuckle, etc. . . There was no control whatsover. This was not ice. This has never ever happened before with any other vehicle we have ever driven. The car did not correct itself even when the steering wheel was released. We believe there is a deficiency in the esp monitoring system. The esp system totally failed while turning. The esp sensors did not detect the situation and did not react at all independent of the driver. The esp system did not use the vehicle's braking system to "steer" the vehicle back on track. The esp did not initiate any braking intervention at all. It was like all systems just totally malfunctioned. Horrible. Someone is going to be seriously hurt. I am thankful another vehicle or person was in the area. This problem occurred on Dec. 29, 2012.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Volvo S40

The vehicle involved was a 2005 Volvo S40. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is YV1M568705_. Car stalls with out warning when travel at speeds of 0-65 mph very dangerous!! there are recalls fuel pressure sensors for nearly all Volvo makes except the S40 2005 this part is truly a defective item and needs to be recalled before a death occurs on the highway!! I thought Volvo was a safe reliable car but I can honestly say this car is the biggest piece of junk I have ever spent a lot if money on. The tires blew out on the sides which also put me in danger the interior headliner fell off as well as all other material on the doors all leather is loose gear shifter cover fell apart. Gas cap broke gas builds too much pressure loosening the gas cap frequently these are just some of the issues I have. Very disappointed in this vehicle I keep my car in the garage. Only drive to and from grocery shopping and dr appts please consider recalls on the important parts of the vehicle that can save lives!. This brake sensor issue occurred Thursday, December 6, 2012.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Volvo S40

The car involved is a 2000 Volvo S40. The car had a crash. Vehicle identification number (VIN): YV1VS2555Y_. I was stopped at a red light behind several cars. The light turned green and I took my foot off the brake, but did not put my foot on the accelerator. The car engine revved up and lurched forward despite me attempting to break heavily. The brakes would not fully decompress causing me to rear end the vehicle in front of me. I purchased the car used with 134,100 miles. I noticed about 5 months after purchase that the engine would rev and the rpm's would remain high without pressing on the accelerator and the car will move approximately 10-15 mph without pressing on the accelerator. When roads are wet or when it has been raining, the car is difficult in braking and the brakes often "freeze" where the brake pedal cannot be depressed. Brakes were replaced, but the issue persists. Also, at times, the car engine continues to rev when pressing on the brakes. Lastly, the engine light came on, it was indicated via a diagnostic test that there was a misfire with one of the spark plug coils. All spark plugs and coils/ignition coils were replaced, engine light persisted. At the time the temp sensor and the thermostat was replaced as the ignition coils and spark plugs did not alleviate the issue. When a following diagnostic test was performed indicated that the coolant temp sensor has low voltage. Sometimes the car engine will turn, but the car will not fully turn on and I need to wait about 10 minutes (or until the fan turns off) before being able to attempt to start the car. Due to the issues with the car, the car cannot get an inspection sticker, and it does not seem safe to drive. Due to massachusetts car laws, we cannot sell the car due to lemon law and the car is worth more than scraping. We also had a broken axel and coil that were replaced after hitting a pothole. This problem occurred on October 2, 2012.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Audi A6

The vehicle involved was a 2008 Audi A6. The VIN of the car is WAUDH74F08_. Multiple issues on this car that all came on about the same time. The amb/parking brake module/esp warning lit up, and a few days later the car was not shifting into gear on startup, and when it did shift into gear it shifted irratically and went into neutral on occasion. The transmission control module, abs sensors both went bad on the car and the car was unable to shift into gear. The car sat at Audi len stoler in owings mills, MD for 2 weeks for problem to be diagnosed. They said it was the transmission control module and the abs sensor that was bad. They replaced the abs sensor in the hopes that it would resolve the transmission problem! it did not. The bill for the abs, and a failed driver door lock switch replacement was almost $1400! the transmission control module is a small black box that has the circuitry that controls the transmission. The part alone costs $2600 and with labor it costs almost $4000 - quote from dealer. A 2008 wit 70k and a tcm fails? according to Audi forums, this is a prevalent issue. Audi needs to do the right thing and recall these cars and get this serious issue fixed. It is a design/quality control flaw. The tcm issue also causes the car to not shift right, or go into neutral while car is being driven. Recall these cars before lifes are lost (if they have not already been lost). These are significant safety issues and is happening with newer cars. My car has been dealer maintained since new and I am a meticulous owner that does not abuse the car. These are premature failures that should not be occurring at this age and mileage. This brake sensor issue occurred Jan. 3, 2013.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2001 BMW 320. While doing 55 mph on the expressway my vehicle engaged the brakes on it's own bringing us to a screaching, skidding stop in the middle of oncoming traffic. This was an extremely scary situation especially when traveling with your children in the car. The car was towed in to the dealership where they discovered the yaw rate sensor had to be replaced. I can not believe mercedes is not recalling this vehicles to be fixed with such a huge safety issue affecting this car. It was August 17, 2012 when this brake sensor issue occurred.

Two dtc codes c0036 & c0245. Ck'd left wheel sensor per Buick service manuals by disconnecting connector at wheel hub & ck'd ok. No problem again for more than a year. Recently got same lights abt & tcs and master light (ck traction system). Also, concurrent got a thumping sound from left front of vehicle over bumps & when applying brakes. Also, when turning left/right the abs pump would turn on (felt thru steering wheel). Scan tool confirmed left wheel solenoid acivated during test drive. Ck'd the front wheel sensors ac voltage out put per Buick service manuals & found left wheel sensor output at 150 mvac and right wheel sensor at 120mvac for "approx" same wheel speed; spec is 100mvac when "spinning wheel" (no speed of wheel in spec!). Other sensor cks (open, shorts to ground, short to voltage, shorted together) all ok. During long trip (400miles) problem (abs,tcs, etc) lights never came on. Problems that occurred during local/short trips totally went away during long trip???? sooooo what to do??? plan to change left front wheel hub as thumping in front end during braking (bearings?) hasn't gone away.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Cadillac SRX

The vehicle involved is a 2004 Cadillac Srx. My wife was driving her 2004 Srx with only 70000 miles. She was traveling at 65 mph when the brakes suddenly started activating and the car swerved to the side almost causing an accident. The error message displayed was service stability on the console. After she told what had happened , I went on the internet and found that too many owners of 2004 Srx experienced the same problem. The dealer ended up replacing the sensor on the steering column. From reading and experiencing this problem I wonder how long will it be before someone gets seriously hurt. I think this problem justifies looking into because it is occuring too many 2004 Srx (edmunds. Com has a lot of complaints). This issue happened on Feb. 23, 2013.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Jaguar XF

The vehicle having this issue was a 2010 Jaguar Xf. The car has no instrument to inform you that you should change the pads. You notice you need to change the pads when it damage your disc or you have no brakes. I am scare for my safety and family. My dad was driving in the road in puerto rico and the car started doing a noise really big noise like it was eating or damaging something in one tire or with the pads and the disc of the right back tire of a Jaguar Xf 2009. We went the next day to the dealer and let them know what happen and they told us, that year the car wasn't made with sensors in the panel and the pads didn't have sensors to let us know we were out of brakes. They told us to pay for the new pads and the disc. But the car it only has 11,500 miles and we find it weird, that a car with so little mile the pads were out and it didn't warn us at all. . All cars comes with sensor in the panel that let you know something is wrong with the brakes and the pads comes with sensors. We were driving the car scare that something might happen to us. I have bought different cars and all of them have sensor that let you with a sign or the main panel tell you when you turn your car on. The failure date was 01/22/10.

car   Brake Sensor problem of Jaguar XF

The life of a Jaguar Xf 2009 discs are less than two years. We send it to the Jaguar service and they said the model that year didn't came with sensor that is why the disc gets damage. The problem is the customer doesn't know when the pads have to be change because it doesn't make the noise to tell you the pads and the disc are failing. In our case they change are pads and disc and in less than three month the disc are scratch and damage because of the pads. Very important we had to pay $800. 00 they said that it is not in warranty. And the pads to and the car only ran 2,000 miles. The scary thing is you are driving and you don't know if the pads and disc are good or bad and it can occur an accident. This brake sensor issue occurred February 13, 2010.
