1998 Toyota RAV4 Q&A

1998 Toyota RAV4 Question: MY ABS LIGHT IS NOT ON BUT MY BRAKES DONT SEEM TO BE WORKING RIGHT .ABS MODULE?

I HAVE TO PUMP THE PADDLE TWICE TO GET THE BRAKES WORKING,AND DOESN'T HAVE THE ABS FEELING. COULD IT BE THE ABS MODULE THAT IS DUE FOR CHANGE? -
Answer 1
No; Do you have rear drums, if so they probably need adjusted. -
Comment 1
Yes i do have rear drums .i will have to check and adjust however could it be the brake master cylinder that has gone bad? -
Comment 2
If it's bad you shouldn't be able to pump it up and it hold pressure. Should keep dropping. -
Comment 3
Thanks again ,that eliminates the cylinder .Actually it drops off after i have pumped it a few times to get the pressure up before it starts to drop off again .However when i give a pump (1 stroke) the paddle goes straight to the floor -
Comment 4
You're not leaking fluid, correct? Could also air in the lines, but usually when the adjustment is out the pedal has to pump up the slack before it will hold. Once the adjusters have been reset, try it again to see if the pedal drifts. -
Comment 5
Thankyou very much ,I'll get back to you as soon as i'm done adjusting,and yes i'm not leaking fluid. -
Comment 6
