If your calipers are leaking they need to be rebuilt or replaced. If the vehicle pulls to one side or the other when braking it could also indicate a problem with one of the calipers.
the symptoms you describe sound like a starter problem. replace it and your problems will be through!
Found problem, intermittent short circuit problem in turn signal switch, replaced switch, problem went away.
Crank Position Sensor needs to be replaced. I had the same problem and that was the cure. It was hard to diagnose because of the intermittent nature of the problem.
Check the calipers on the car to see which one is frozen. Most likely you have a stuck wheel caliper that is causing the frozen problem and will have to be replaced.
I had an intermittent problem with that sensor on my PA. When the error code in the computer was checked, it showed up as a problem. I had it replaced. The cam sensor can cause a similar problem.
I had one do this and I had to change the brake calipers. Problem was gone.
check linkage down near the pedals..there might be some excess play that is causing the problem
It is probably a bad ground most intermittent problems with electric components are
There typically are 2 micro switches witch need to be replaced. in the selector. if you have problems shifting into gear replace the brake light switch.
it is most likely the brake calipers sticking, as I recently had this problem on my 2007 dodge grand caravan. They did not do it all the time, but would stick out for a brief period of time after braking, thus causing the burning smell, and then shortly after retract far enough so that there was no longer cantact, and therefore, the burning smell then went away.
Replacing the calipers are pretty simple. just take the wheel off and its right there. Two bolts and its off. Calipers are not something that usually has a problem.
The fuel pump should be replaced.
If it is making a rapid clicking as compared to the slower intermittent clicking. One of your turn signal bulbs need to be replaced, normally it will only do this when the bulb is not working at all.
usually either the calipers have dirt in them and need to be replaced or the rubber lines leading to them have collapsed inside and need to be replaced.. really kills the gas mileage uh!! chevy has had problems with rear discs on these vehicles,70%of braking is on the front,30% on the rear. therefore the pistons get little use and stick. there are stainless sliders the calipers move on,you need to clean and lubricate them,this should stop the brakes from dragging. I have a 1999 Blazer and my rear brakes were grinding so I replaced the pads and rotors but had the same sticking problem. They dont offer a rebuild kit for my calipers so I had to replace the calipers also.
This problem is caused by disc brakes that have a fluid leaking from the calipers. You can buy loaded calipers an install to the car to fix the problem.
I am working on this myself right now. I have replaced the master cylinder, lines, shoes, and calipers. The problem persists. I am going to try sanding and lubing the ways on the calipers today. There is nothing else to fix. I found an article in a Dodge forum that suggested this in the most detailed fix i have found.
change that calipers
I had an intermittent problem like this with an 2004 Optima EX V6. I changed out the fuel pump and it seems to have corrected the problem, but being intermittent, only time will tell.
I am having the same problem. Ist time overhauled calipers. Right front pads wore out quickly. Next replaced calipers, same deal right front is locked to the point where care shakes and cannot be driven. Thinking proportioning valve or master cylinder? Anyone ever run into this?
I suspect multiple problems. The blank or intermittent odometer problem is a common problem in the 2002 Ford Explorer. The ABS and airbag lights are most likely a different problem than the odometer problem. For complete information on the intermittent odometer problem, see http://www.odometer-repair.com .
Sure if your calipers aren't open enough and your brakes stick
there is a problem with your bcm or body control module, have it checked
