A defective anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump and/or leaking piston seals in the master cylinder can cause excessive pedal effort, lack of stopping power, and abnormal pump noise. Diagnoses will be required to determine the root cause of any braking issues and the component(s) that will require replacement.

Anytime the anti lock comes on I have no brakes until they decide that they are going to cooperate again.

ABS light came on. Has not been fixed yet. No issues so far, just the light that remains on.

I took it to the newirth motors dealer in wilmington nc the brake pedal is hard to push and they said its the master cylinder needs to be replaced and said it is not covered under the recall. the pump was replaced in dec 2014 for the second time. there should be a recall that takes care of this but they said no. I called dodge corporation and they said no. but the part number they gave me comes up as asb hydralic unit not master cylinder. but they still told me no that I would need to pay them 3,000.00 to fix it I can't afford that. I think there must be a way to correct this .
