Discovery II

  • 91,000 miles


Vehicle in motion traveling at approx 5-7 mph. Zip code 06615 when 3 ABS sensor lights went on 1. hill descent 2. ABS 3.traction control. Recent ABS shuttle switch replaced for same reported sensor lights failure. Vehicle was not on an incline and at an intersection and light. After passing intersection cars were entering street from side. Tried to slow down as car pulled out and could not. Another car pulled out.. tried to move around car since car would not slow down. Upon putting more pressure anti lock vibration began and car had sensation of ' locking up ' on a wheel and felt as if the car was either sliding or 'not having any brake' control. And steering seemed to be affected. Had to cross oncoming car lane to veer away from cars pulling into my line as car was not handling properly. Had to go off the far left side of road onto sidewalk, grass of a private residence lawn and went through a fence. When I took my foot off the brake and began to brake again the sensation was as if pressure was not pumped into brake line and was able to then stop the car. This is the second time I could not stop the vehicle from antilock failure. The first time I thought it was weather related road conditions however I was traveling slowly approaching a red light and had to go through the light because car would not stop. The car has significant damage. Four other cars were avoided as I lost control failure of brakes. Wheel sensor speed and steering. No one injured. Vehicle was on main street at lunch time when there was activity on main street. 3 recalls for this model on record. 1 recall for this car was drive shaft related failure and vibration in advance. I experienced this and the drive shaft did brakedown on a small road causing car to go out of control. Fireman 1st responder helped me to safety. Driveshaft recall for 2004 model was in 2012. Police report: 16-10673.
