Alright I searched and found a few posts however, im hoping maybe you guys can help me narrow it down by finding out what happened. I paid an outrageous amount to have my front brakes changed a few weeks ago (I had no choice). Not wanting to be in that situation again i ordered new pads and rotors from R1 Concepts.
We put them on last night. Not realizing that the guy who parked the car and put the wheel chocks down also set the parking break. We beat on our stuck rotor for a little bit with a 16oz rubber mallet before it clicked that something was holding it on....(NY winters, having to beat a rotor off is very common)
The rest of the change went very smoothly.
I headed up the road and bedded the brakes. A ride up the mountain and then down to cool em off. As soon as i turned around, My ABS, TC OFF, Service Stability System, and Service Brake Assist came on. I got back and the brakes were hot as hell, which is normal after putting them through that. So i figured that it was a fluke. Reset the car, no problems driving 20m to my apt. Drove 30m to work today, no problem. However, as soon as i left work, they all came back on. Reset them, and it lasted a few miles. Then came back on. I drove it the 300m back to my house with no problems but the lights. Theres no squealing, no vibrations, brake pedal is firm....Im taking it to the garage monday morning but id like to give them as much help as possible. I will not take it to the dealership as i have problems with the only one in that area.
What could i have done? If your looking at the rear right rotor, theres a line coming in on the upper left side that looks like a sensor. Is it possible my problem is that? It may have gotten nudged once or twice when hitting the rotor.
Will the codes actually tell them the exact sensor that is bad...
