What does it mean

Unread post by dlopez1119 » Mon Aug 11, 2014 6:39 am

I was driving my 2000 Dodge Durango and the abs and brake light came on and it was making a sound of something running. I shut the truck off and something was still on.. Then my check engine light also came on.

you should have your truck scanned for codes. it's the only thing that will tell why the lights are on.

was the noise coming from the engine compartment? it could have been the abs pump turning on. that's just a guess though.

Yes it was the abs pump. Can that be disconnected? Can I drive my truck with those lights on.

you can drive with the lights on. however, with the lights on especially the check engine light on, the vehicle might not drive at it's best. you should have it scanned to see what the codes are. I cannot tell you to disconnect anything that has to do with the operation of your braking system. while you may not need ABS braking normally if you ever needed it and am involved in an accident a lot of liabilities will come into affect.

ignoring the warning systems on your vehicle is not a great idea. something is wrong. it may be something minor but it could also be the beginning of something that may be important.

you should use a scanner and see what it says about your transmission. sounds like you might be losing your trans. see what you pressures are and if it has the pid for material wear.
