2005 Dodge Dakota brake system question

Asked by Dec 12, 2013 at 06:28 AM about the 2005 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr ST Club Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

ABS light came on in my 2005 Dodge Dakota, had a spongy pedal.  Checked fluid,
reservoir was dry.  Added, pedal came back.  Went ahead and bled the lines.  Everything
was fine.  24 hours later, reservoir was dry.  Repeated same process and watched.  
Every time I parked my truck, I got out and checked the fluid levels.  Unchanged.  Last
night I got home, checked the fluid levels and still full.  This morning, its dry.  Brakes
haven't been pumped, truck hasn't been started since getting home last night.  No
puddles.  Truck is kept outside.  Wouldn't I see a puddle on the concrete?  Where should
I be looking for this leak?  It's been cold here recently, low was 0 last night.  Any reason
that would cause a problem?  Front calipers and master cylinder were replaced in May, no
problems until now.

You definetely have a leak. Look around each wheel, under the truck where the brake lines are and around the reservior. It might also be your master cylinder is leaking in to the brake booster.
