2001 Toyota Sienna Q&A
2001 Toyota Sienna Question: abs problems
Husband was driving and had to brake very hard, said there was a little sand/dirt on the road and the front brakes locked up. Had it towed to shop. They said the caliper on the front right brake was completely locked and were having trouble getting it unlocked.Then said the abs system was damaged and they couldn't fix it we needed to take it to a dealership. The dealership said the abs needed to be replaced (the part $1800) but the master cylindar was also damaged(which the other mechanic didn't mention had a problem so I am a little doubtful) The bottom line it that the repair is approx $3500 which is about what we paid for this vehicle(did I mention we just paid the last payment on it) Can we just disable the abs system - chele4him
I would get another opinion about this repair. Just because there was a panic stop on a sandy road, should not have hurt your braking system. A stuck Caliper could have been caused by the pads being worn and the piston over extended, but that is not $3500 repair. I don't understand how the Master Cylinder was hurt by this, that is very unusual. The ABS system is designed to be applied hundreds if not thousands of times with out any problems. Something about this Diagnosis does not feel right by either shop, it sounds like they are guessing. here are some other shops to call, they should be able to inspect your Brakes for about 1 hour of Diagnosis time. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=36109&car_brand_names=Toyota - dandd

These lights all come on as soon as the car moves forward after braking, and they stay on until the car is switched off. Owner's manual says take it to the dealer: NOT!! What gives?
