2005 VUE 3.5L
Default 2005 Vue FWD 6 cyl ABS problem

I recently purchase a FWD 2005 Vue with ABS brake.
On dry pavement, the vehicle brake perfectly, unless you have to lock the wheels for an emergency.
On ice or snow, when you try to brake, the ABS on the front wheels engaged much too fast and does not seems to do its job, making a funny grinding noise and making the vehicle hard to stop..
When you release the brake pedal, for about 1 second, you can still hear the ABS trying to do its job.
Any indication about what should I look for?
ABS Brake sensors or ABS brake module, or else???
Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: 2005 Vue FWD 6 cyl ABS problem

Your issue(s) is a bit confusing. Is your ABS light on?
When stopping on ice, do you feel the pedal pulse?
Grinding is an indication that your pads are worn out. This has nothing to do with ABS.
The fact you think you're hearing the ABS after releasing the pedal makes me think worn out pads are still contacting the rotor and may be a result of a sticking piston.
I would raise the car, pull the wheel off and take a close look at your pads, calipers and rotors. Post some pics and we can give you a better idea of what may be going on.

There's a chance this could be worn out wheel bearings or CV joints, but let's look at the brakes first and go from there.

Default Re: 2005 Vue FWD 6 cyl ABS problem

Pads are ok and no lights are permanently on.

I have removed the ABS fuse, and the car brake perfectly, like the old time.

I am suspecting the ABS sensors.

When I try to brake on slippery roads (snow), the ABS comes in too quickly and too intensively. So intense that the car takes too long to come to a stop.

The ABS are acting so much that it slows down the braking.

The funny grinding sound, is due to the ABS that are acting like crazy fast pace.

I have an Infinity G35X, that has ABS and it react perfectly, with the ABS helping to get the car to a stop.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: 2005 Vue FWD 6 cyl ABS problem

chuckle. there you go. your infiniti abs works correct but the vue abs does not? maybe you should have bought another infiniti? my abs also has issues. but i have an identical vue that is sitting now due to timing belt issues. i am considering swapping the bcm since that controls the abs? just as an experiment. but i worry my vue wont like it. or does the pcm control the abs?

Cavell, some info to consider; a)the engine control module (ECM) runs the EFI system, b)body control module (BCM) runs almost everything else except airbags and abs, acts as gateway communications for OBD II, c)abs/tc has its own control module to self diagnose abs issues, turns on the abs light for errors, and run the abs operation to help with braking, d)airbag system has its own sensing and diagnostic module to self test the airbags, monitor the airbags during ignition on time, turn on the airbag light if system problems are detected and store error codes.
