2007 Honda Accord Question: Brakes and Snow
I have a 2007 value package, originally from a Georgia fleet of cars, that I bought used last year. The brakes work great except when it snows. Then I get all kinds of grinding and a pulsing feel as though ice is caught between the rotors the pads and it almost doesn't want to stop. My mechanic has said that there is nothing wrong with my brakes. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on with it? - Roseflowers
I think the ABS system is just doing it's job. Each wheel is monitored for lock up when braking and when the system sees a change in one wheel speed relative to another wheel it will dump fluid rapidly (this is the pulsing your feeling) to keep the vehicle from sliding or spinning around. Most systems are sensitive to correct tire size, air pressure and treadwear. Read up on your brake system in the operator's manual for more explanation. Good luck. - autorob
After 100,000 miles.Should there be routine replacement of Hydrauli cylinders, hose and lines? My brake light is on.
