BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 1996 Pontiac Bonneville AUTOMOBILES

Includes anti-lock brakes, disc, drum, power and hydraulic brake services diagnostics and procedures for domestic and imported 1996 Pontiac Bonneville cars and light trucks from 1990+.

Anti-lock Brakes -> Bonneville, Eighty Eight, LeSabre, LSS, Ninety Eight & Park Avenue -> Description -> ABS Warning Lamp -> Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) -> System Operation -> Wheel Speed Sensors
Vehicle: 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE 3.8 V6 GAS

System Operation

The purpose of the anti-lock brake system, Fig. and , is to prevent wheel lock-up under heavy braking conditions on virtually any road surface. When a wheel locking condition exists, the Pressure Modulator Valve (PMV) assembly isolates each wheel's hydraulic circuit, then begins modulation of fluid pressure according to wheel speed inputs to the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) or Electronic Brake and Traction Control Module (EBTCM). The PMV is controlled by the EBCM.

Modulation occurs by means of three ABS modes: pressure hold, pressure reduce and pressure in...

  • If any parts are of doubtful strength or quality due to heat discoloration, or are worn, replace them.
  • Inspect wheel cylinder dust boots for signs of excessive wear or damage. If any leakage is apparent replace wheel cylinder.
  • Clean dirt and/or rust from brake drum, backing plate and all other components. Do not use compressed air or dry brush to clean brake parts. Many brake parts contain asbestos fibers which, if inhaled, can cause serious injury. Clean brake parts with a water soaked rag or a suitable vacuum cleaner to minimize airborne dust.

BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 1996 Pontiac Bonneville AUTOMOBILES

Includes anti-lock brakes, disc, drum, power and hydraulic brake services diagnostics and procedures for domestic and imported 1996 Pontiac Bonneville cars and light trucks from 1990+.

Hydraulic Brake Systems -> Description -> Brake Distribution Valve & Switch -> Brake Warning Lamp Switches -> Combination Valve -> Components -> Diagonally Split System -> Failure Warning Switch -> Fluid Level Sensor -> Front & Rear Split System -> Metering Valve -> Proportioning Or Pressure Control Valve -> System Operation -> Warning Lamp
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 SSE 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.
