HI, new here as of just now. I noticed that the ABS light(on my 1997 Dodge 1500 p/u) stays on all the time now, and that my braking system has reverted to manual brake system( the pedal goes almost to the floor, but not mushy). I did read the manual, and it does say possible trouble with hydraulics? I had a buddy who is a mechanic over, and looked and didn;t see anything underneath to indicate any leaks.but thought I should get it checked out. I need to drive this every day, and was wondering if I can still drive it safely until I get it serviced( can't until Friday
Reverted to manual braking? You mean the ABS being disabled, I presume. Have your mechanic buddy pull the ABS trouble codes and go from there. If there are no leaks and the truck still stops ok, it should be safe to drive.
