I changed my rear brake pads and now my right rear wheel got really hot. Any suggestions?


Two things can cause this. 1 Check that the piston is free to move in the caliper . 2 that the caliper to move from side on it's pins or rails.

the FSM book covers how to do it right ever consider reading that first then act?
  1. pistons in calip, no seized,
  2. caliper slider pins seized.
  3. emg. brake, mechansim stuck
  4. emg, brake, not adjusted after all done, per FSM!
  5. brake pedal rod not adjusted, right for clearance to master cylinder (risks 4 wheel lockup)
  6. icing of parts, got ICE? we cant guess ice, and not stated.

No brake lights...taillights...or tag lights...where is the fuse box on a 2002 kenworth t300 located?


Fuse box on my W-9 was under the hood on the firewall, yours may be in a similar location. However, after a hard winter's driving, I usually had one or more corroded wires in the rear exposed wiring harness, corroded connector or light assembly to repair due to the salt and calcium chloride they put on the roads eating up the wire covering and shorting out the wiring.

I have a 1999 dodge ram 3500 Diesel 4x4 and I go threw front pads and rotors. It sings when I'm driving down the road that the brakes are on could it be the master cylinder


YES IT COULD BE, BEST TO JACK VEHICLE UP AND SPIN WHEELS TO SEE IF THEY ARE BINDING.
IF SO CHECK CALIPERS WHERE PADS FIT SEE IF SEIZED ON SLIDERS.
ALSO CHECK FLUID LEVEL IF TO HIGH THE FLUID CAN NOT RETURN WHEN NOT PRESSED + SEE IF ITS BLACK FLUID NOT CLEAR, SIGNS OF CYLINDER FAILIURE

Sounds like wheel bearing or CV joint is shot at the best your brake pads are down to the metal

The car should be off the road as both sets of bearings can seize with dire consequenses and if it is your brakes !! need I say more
