Accessing Diagnostic Trouble Codes

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...

Drum Brakes -> Type 6 -> Precautions
Vehicle: 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE 3.8 V6 GAS

When working on or around brake assemblies, care must be taken to prevent breathing asbestos dust, as many manufacturers incorporate asbestos fibers in the production of brake linings. During routine service operations the amount of asbestos dust from brake lining wear is at a low level due to a chemical breakdown during use, and a few precautions will minimize exposure.

  • Do not sand or grind brake linings unless suitable local exhaust ventilation equipment is used to prevent excessive asbestos exposure.
  • Wear a suitable respirator approved for asbestos dust use during all repair proced...

The most common cause of brake chatter on disc brakes is a variation in thickness of the disc. If roughness or vibration is encountered during highway operation or if pedal pulsation is experienced at low speeds, the disc may have excessive thickness variation. To check for this condition, measure the disc at 12 points with a micrometer at a radius approximately one inch from edge of disc. If thic...

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.
