Accessing Diagnostic Trouble Codes

In the process of controlling the anti-lock brake system, the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) continually monitors operating conditions for possible faults. By comparing system conditions against standard operating limits, certain circuit and component faults can be detected. A four-digit numerical diagnostic trouble code is stored in computer memory when a problem is detected by this self-diagnostic system. The diagnostic trouble codes can later be accessed with a bi-directional scan tool.

The ABS diagnostic trouble codes which may be...

AC-Delco Tandem Diaphragm Type

This unit utilizes a vacuum power chamber, consisting of a front and rear shell, housing divider, front and rear diaphragm, plate assemblies, hydraulic pushrod and a diaphragm return spring, Figs. and .

In normal operating mode, with service brakes in released position, the booster operates with vacuum on both sides of its diaphragms. When brakes are applied, air at atmospheric pressure is admitted to one side of each diaphragm to provide power assist. When the service brake is released, atmospheric air is shut off from one side of each diaphragm. The a...

Vehicle: 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SSE 3.8 V6 GAS

System Operation
Front & Rear Split System

When the brake pedal is depressed, both the primary (front brake) and the secondary (rear brake) master cylinder pistons are moved simultaneously to exert hydraulic fluid pressure on their respective systems, .

If the rear (secondary) brake system fails, initial brake pedal movement will cause the unrestricted secondary piston to bottom in the master cylinder bore. Primary piston movement will displace hydraulic fluid in the primary section of the master cylinder to actuate the front brake system.

If the front (primary) brake system fails, init...

Power Brake Units -> General Service
Vehicle: 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE 3.8 V6 GAS

Two basic types of power assist mechanisms are used: vacuum assist diaphragm assemblies, which use engine vacuum or, in some cases vacuum pressure developed by an external vacuum pump. The second type is a hydraulic pressure assist mechanism, which use pressure developed by an external pump (usually the power steering pump). Both systems act to increase the force exerted on the master cylinder piston by the operator. This in turn increases the hydraulic pressure delivered to the wheel cylinders, while decreasing driver effort necessary to obtain acceptable stopping performance.
