1998 Chrysler Neon Brakes/ABS problem

Discussion in 'Neon' started by Colin Grayson, Jun 14, 2004.

  1. My brakes become applied without the pedal being pressed. This doesn't
    always happen but is usually evident within 1 mile of starting. The brake
    pedal become hard to press, the car changes gear and the wheels get hot.
    This will usually recover when the engine is switched off for a few minutes.
    I think it is the ABS giving problems and I'd like to disable it but don't
    know if removing the fuse in the pack near the battery will have any other

    Anyone got any suggestions please

    Well it isn't the ABS!! I took the fuse out which disabled the ABS without
    apparently having any effect on anything except that the ABS light was lit
    after a few seconds. I guess it must be something wrong with the power
    assist and the master servo arrangement.

    I'm still open to any ideas.

    Well it isn't the ABS!! I took the fuse out which disabled the ABS without
    Maybe that lever/handle, with the button on the end, located between
    the seats, . . . . . or the cables attached thereto, located allong the

    . . . . . just in case you hadn't thought of that!!

    God Bless,

    Unfortunately I haven't been able locate a workshop manual to see the
    braking system layout but my problem is only with the front brakes and I
    believe that the lever/handle only has effect on the rear brakes - good
    thought though and maybe relevant yet.
