I have an 89 yj, and the anti lock check warnign light is on ONLY when i push brake pedal in, and when it starts, then it goes off... I get very little braking power. It is very hard to stop the car.. Actually, i have to slam on the brakes to even stop slowly.
I know the brakes used to squeak in the fall. The car has been parked all winter. They only squeaked for a short time, and then stopped, so I let it go.
Is this a sign I need new brakes?
ALSO, every time I brake, with the power brake booster vacuum hose connected, the rpms will go up about 100 - 200 rpms, but if the vacuum hose from the intake to the booster is not connected, the rpms will stay the same.
Is this nromal?
One other thing. The anti lock check light goes on every time i push the brake pedal in... but when i let it go, the anti lock check light will go off...
What problems am i having? Anyone have any input?
