Abs light came onwhile traveling in florida. Car makes grinding sound. Light goes on after driving awhile. Does not brake properly if light comes on while coming to a stop. Replace all brakes and sensors and still no help. Chrysler knows they have a problem and it is going to take someone dying before this gets fixed. There have been thousands of complaints on this at much lower mileages than my car. Please do something. Either chryler knows what the fix is and does not care or at this point they really do not know what to do and will not take responsibility.

The abs light started to just flash on and off, even when not braking. Then abs started to malfunction causing problem with braking. While I was driving it in downtown nashville at about 25mph, braking down hill, I tapped on the brakes to slow down and I could feel the pedal rapidly pulsating and noticed the abs light turn on and the car was having difficulty stopping. Thought I would run the stop sign. In last seconds normal braking occurred. Abs light began coming on intermittently, took to shop following day. Had front and rear brake replaced. Light starting coming on again within a few days, when light comes on problem with brakes.

The abs system is malfunctioning. I have had new rotors, new calipers and new pads put on the car. The abs light continues to go on & off. When braking it intermittently fails to brake appropiately. It either brakes with the brake pedal not catching properly or it doesn't brake at the correct time. It is slow to respond to pressure on the brake pedal. Last week the power steering stopped working when I braked and was trying to turn left onto another road. It started working again after about 10-15 seconds.

I was driving at lower speeds, approaching a stop sign; driving down a hilly road in downtown nashville, TN. My abs light suddenly came on as I pressed the brake it temporary made a grinding noise and brakes temporary failed then as suddenly as it happened the brakes stopped grinding and then stopped. This is a braking issue that came happen suddenly with no sign or warning before it happened!!!!!!!! the abs brake sensors or some mysterious other abs related issue that is stomping mechanics. I took my vehicle in the next day and had brakes replaced but the problem continues. My brakes work fine but at times I would get the abs light signal coming on then like a scrubbing noise seem to be coming from the front wheels well brakes causing difficulty in stopping. But not at all times. Sometimes this happens with no abs light coming on! and this usually happens at lower speeds 30 and under even at 15-20 mph when I am breaking for a red light or stop sign. I saw on sites where thousands of people hare having the same problem and were told by dealerships and mechanics that even after those are replaced the problem continues, no one seems to be able to find out what the real problem is and Chrysler won't even try to fix my vehicle was working fine the all of a sudden, the issue. I think this is a dangerous situation. I think there should be a recall on the abs wheel sensors and the module control or whatever the real problem is? only Chrysler knows butr they are not telling!!! I think if they won't address then the government should make them please include this int he current recall let's get these unsafe vehicles off the roadways!!! now is a good time to doit, with the recall of other like vechiles from Chrysler are already in recalln.

Tl-the contact owns a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica. The contact stated that while at a stop light, the brake pedal started to vibrate as the it was being depressed. The contact added more pressure and the abs warning light illuminated. The dealer diagnosed that brakes needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired but the failure persisted. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who replaced the master cylinder but failed to remedy the failure. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was unavailable. Pam.

My abs light keeps coming on intermittently. The brakes lock up without warning. Today I had to swerve onto the shoulder to avoid a collision. This has happened before but without incident. This is a serious safety hazard and should receive special attention immediately!.

I will hear a chime and look to see why and the abs light will be on. Then when I hit the brakes sometimes they feel fine other times they feel spongy. I have read where this is a ongoing problem with Pacificas. There needs to be a recall and Chrysler needs to pay for the repairs.

I was driving down the highway and the abs light came on. Moments later I had to come to a sudden stop and had very little braking power. I had to swerve severely to avoid an accident. Since the the light comes on frequently and braking is severely effected. Nothing the mechanics do lasts long. I can't sell the car and I'm afraid to drive it outside of the neighborhood. Apparently everything the service code may indicate is extremely expensive. I can't believe this car hasn't been recalled yet. With so many cars having this problem there has to be a common fix.

There is a very strong fuel smell that is seeping into the passenger compartment of the car. It seems to appear around 40 to 50 mph and is very strong in the last week. At 125,000 mi the abs sensors turns on and off constantly. When you first press the brakes it does not grab the rotors and continues to not stop until the abs light comes on and the brakes perform normal. This is very scary because the car almost went thru several intersections without stopping. The fuel indicator drops to almost empty when it falls below half a tank for about 6 months.

Multiple issues with this car! I will start with the problems that didn't almost kill myself and my children. The abs light would stay on and the dealer had no resolution. The car would stall while turning. I replaced the battery five times in four years. While idling in the driveway the drivers seat reclined by itself, would not respond to the controls and started smoking! the dealer claims they could not diagnose the problem! lastly, while driving my sons to school, the car was handling poorly and because it was dark and raining, initially I believed that it was wet road conditions. To maintain control of the car, I was traveling in the slow lane and my speed was approx. 30 mph. Upon approaching the top of a small hill, the steering began to vibrate violently, at this time I believed that the car had a flat tire and that was what had caused the poor handling while driving. I immediately hit the button for my hazard lights and began to try to ease into the emergency lane and attempt to stop the car. It was instantly apparent that the car brakes and power steering were not working, which left me struggling at 30 mph and accelerating because of the I was now on the downward side of the hill, to try to maintain control of the car! I was able to keep the car from completely veering to the right and ultimately hit a 5 inch concrete curb that is a turn out for the corner gas station. Upon hitting the curb the car then sprang to the left back into the highway lane. Miraculously, no other vehicles were traveling in that lane at that moment! once, we were out of the car, I learned that the car did not have a flat tire but a part of the front end had broken and caused the passenger front tire to collapse into the wheel well. . . Unbelievable! I believe this to be a defect of the car, in addition to he multitude of other defects of this car!!.

Abs warning light keeps coming on intermittantly. I have had it worked on and reset but it keeps coming on. The mechanic says the diagnostic code doesn't make sense. It is becoming costly to keep having it checked. There should be a recall as there are many Pacifica's that have the same problem.

The abs light on my vehicle continues to come on. I've spoken with other people who own the same vehicle who has the same issues. The brakes on the vehicle were fixed less than two months ago and there should not be a reason for this to come one.

The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. The contact stated the abs light illuminated on the instrument panel and the brakes began to make a grinding noise. The brake failure almost caused a crash to occur. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told the catalytic converter needed to be replaced; however, the check engine light didn't illuminate until after it was replaced. The vehicle was taken to the dealer a second time because the brakes were grinding and was told that the transmission was failing and needed to be replaced. The abs light continued to remain illuminated on the instrument panel; however, the dealer did not duplicate or diagnose the failures. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was unknown. The current mileage was 96,000.

Abs warning light has been on for over a year. It comes on within 3 minutes of driving, which disengages my anti-lock brakes. Mechanic advised I get my abs sensors replaced, but it's both very expensive and was told that it will probably happen again in no time since this is a recurring issue with Pacificas. This model must be recalled since the integrity of my braking system is compromised and puts myself and the safety of my family at risk.

About 5 months ago my car would not stop completely when braking. I would let off brakes and reapply & it still did not stop promptly. Abs light came on & engine light came on. I took it to Chrysler repair center in delray beach florida. They said my nvl pump & abs sensor needed replaced. They also said if I do not replace the nvl pump my car will begin to stall. The car began stalling about 3-4 weeks later. It happened about 4-6 times at low speeds or when the car was at idol. I had the pump replaced by another mechanic a few weeks later. The car kept stalling after the part was replaced. Then the car started completely lock up & turn off right in the middle of driving. I have no power, no steering. . . Nothing. I can't believe I haven't been in an accident yet! I took it back in to 3 different mechanics for an inspection & diagnostic. All three mechanics say now I have O2 sensors & mounts that are bad. They all say that everything else is fine. They all 3 say the mounts & O2 sensors doesn't explain why the car stalls & locks up/turns off while driving. My last mechanic ran a recall search for my car & found a recall for my make & model that completely explains my problem. However when I called Chrysler back in the middle of January they said my VIN # does not qualify?!?!? I called Chrysler home office to see if there was some kind of error as to why my car is not eligible for the recall & they haven't called back. How can Chrysler not honor this defect in my car when it honors it in others. It is dangerous. I have 2 children that I drive around. I need my car to be safe. I have researched that many other people with my car have the same exact problems. Chrysler obviously is aware of the problem but will not deal with it. This should be illegal! please can someone help me?.

Abs light appears intermittently. Mechanic finds no problem. Now takes greater distance to stop vehicle. Experienced complete brake failure 5/2/2011. I am afraid to drive this vehicle. I do not know if it will actually stop when I apply the brake.

Two month after I bought my Pacifica my abs light came on and has continued to come on even after it was fixed. Apparently it is the sensor that keeps having issues. It reads a different speed than the other sensors. Also I keep having an issue with my engine light coming on randomly. I have taken the car in for evaluation 3 times and every time they tell me I need to turn the gas cap so many times to stop this from comming on. This actually does not solve the problem, as it is still continues to come on and turn off randomly. Again I assume a sensor, the automotive places are sure I just need to turn the cap,how many times will it need to be turned 20 cause 3, 4, 5 ,6 none of these stop the problem, super annoying Chrysler cannot just fix the problem, they made the car it cannot be that hard to fix.

On the evening of Monday, October 11, 2010, we dropped our car off at a local Chrysler dealership. The purpose for this drop off was to determine why the abs light was on, and would not go off. The next morning we received a call from a service technician explaining that our computer module needed to be replaced, and that they had discovered an additional problem with the main wiring harness. The technician went on to explain that the main wiring harness had completely melted, and he could not understand why the car did not catch on fire. " after an "investigation," Chrysler's legal department determined that the issue was not a manufacturing defect, and would not provide any reason for the fire, but only offered that it extinguished itself. We contacted our insurance company, and they ruled it a fire, and repaired the wiring harness. We were responsible for repairing the abs light malfunction.

My abs light keeps coming on in my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. I drive my car every day to take my children to daycare and then to work. While driving my car, my brakes will start grinding and then the brakes will fail. I have luckily not been in any accidents, but have ran stop signs and stop lights due to not being able to stop. I have come inches from hitting other cars. This occurs every time that I drive the car. It will start to happen within the first four to five miles and I drive roughly 20 miles a day just to work. I have taken my car into les schwab and they say my brakes and pads are fine. They flushed the brakes and re-bled them to see if that would do anything, but it has not. I have searched on line and found hundreds of owners for the 2006 Pacifica stating the same problems, and any time they fix a sensor which is what the reader code is coming up, the same thing happens and says it's the sensor again. It really concerns me that there has not been a recall on this vehicle yet. What does it take? someone to die before this vehicle is recalled? every day I have to wonder if my children and I will be seriously injured or killed because of this problem. I don't make a lot of money, have 3 children to support and cannot afford to by another car. I have no choice but to drive this vehicle to get to work. I am pleading to please, please, please, take this problem seriously and to save the lives of these many owners and families of the 2006 Pacifica. What if you and you're family owned this vehicle? think of how scary it is to lose your brakes. Thank you! I put the "incident date" as the day this started happening.

Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). Abs light on - failure to stop the vehicle. I own a chry-pacifica 2006, abs light came on while driving the car, just before the light came on, (transition between abs stopped working and turned to traditional brakes) I was making a left turn, the car instead of stopping kept going and I just missed hitting the oncoming traffic. The failure could have resulted in catastrophic accident. I took the car to get this repaired and was informed that there is a bulletin providing instruction about replacement of sensors for Pacifica, also it suggests it could be covered under warranty based on warranty provisions. Mileage: around 60,000 the question I have is if Chrysler is aware of the issue why can't they extend warranty on such parts that are related to safety? also, it requires the owner to replace all four sensors - why? is there anything that can bedone to help the customer with this issue?
