Jeep Grand Cherokee

What might cause the right front braking system on your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee to be pulsating to the point of overheating the rotor?

Any problem with the braking system of your vehicle makes your vehicle unsafe to drive, and you need to get competent help for it immediately. If you have a pulsing sensation as you drive, it's possible that the rotor is already warped or not mounted correctly. This isn't a hard fix; just replace it, and take care in getting it back on the hub correctly. Make sure there's no runout on the hub, and that the front wheel bearing or wheel carrier isn't shot. It is also possible that you have an ABS failure. The sensor might be bad, or the pump or computer might have a problem. You might try disconnecting the ABS pump and seeing if the problem persists. Note that driving with the ABS pump disabled radically changes the way the car handles, and you should be very careful on such a test drive.

Prevents brakes from locking by pulsating the pressure when you apply firmly so they don't grab.

lateral runout. your rotors or drums are warped and need to be machined or replaced depending on the thickness. if your slamming the brakes this is normal its your antilock braking system functioning as it should to keep you from sliding.

brakes are the braking system It could be a part of the control system It has a hydraulic system in the braking system

Antiliock braking system is the mechanism which controlls the braking of brakes, If the pedals are fully pressed it will oppose the motion to protect your braking

it is called abs. anti lock braking system

Pneumatic braking system utilizes compressed air to stop the motion in vehicles.

ABS (anti-blocking system) starts... to avoid locking brakes. It may also be a warped rotor and brake pads worn out, depending on what you mean by hard braking.

pulsating effect The Abs equipped cars do this naturally older cars with abs you will notice it more so than newer models.. If it just started occurring there may be a problem in the braking system. if it feels as if you are going over rumble strips (without the noise) when you brake first suspect would be a warped rotor.

the amber ABS light indicates a problem with the ABS system, not the main braking system. but the main braking system is working.

ABS is an acronym for Antilock Braking System.

In a braking system, if the part has failed or is leaking, then it has to be replaced. There are no sealants used on a hydraulic braking system.

The terminology for this system is ABS (anti-lock braking system). This prevents wheels from locking while braking heavily. The reson behind this is that when a wheel is locked, it cannot steer, which can lead to accidents. The point of ABS is not reduce the braking distance, but to alllow this vital steering while emergency braking.

ABS is antilock braking system (not 'air' braking system, especially seeing as air brakes are typically only present in heavy duty and some medium duty trucks). It engages and releases the brakes automatically as you are braking in order to prevent brake lockup and skidding.

Dual diagonal braking is where the brakes are on two systems right front and left rear as well as left front and right rear. This is to give even braking in a partial system failure

If you mean braking system, then it is the system installed on vehicles used to stop the vehicle.
