    Default 1993 T & C: ABS light stays on for a while @ start


    I notice brake pedal is hard until light goes off (a minute or so) then
    all is well.
    Notice also that the brake fluid is leaking out the top of the
    reservoir.

    Hard braking & that kind of leaking in my previous 3 '93 T& C's has
    always meant that the ABS pump is bad and is a recall item, however this
    T & C has already had it done & the Chrysler dealer is refusing to do it
    again.

    Thought that the recall/warranty on the pump was lifetime (?)

    ..... If not I have a donor van in the yard with one that had been
    recently replaced under warranty .... how difficult is it for me to swap
    pumps here in the yard?

    Any directions & suggestions are greatly appreciated1

    Thanks

    try this first.

    with engine off, pull the vacuum boost hose, and stick something long down
    inside the hose. Most techs use a long plastic zip tie or something like
    that. what you are looking for is to see if there is any brake fluid in
    there. if there is, your master cyl has leaked fluid down into the brake
    booster. doubt it has sine you are leaking out the top but its worth it to
    verify it.

    oops. I meant stick something long down into the hole in the brake booster,
    not the hose! Sorry for the typo.
