    back pasengers brakes keep sticking on

  • rrogers20 Mar 18, 2009

    The calipers on the Ford probe, front and back are junk...I know this seems like a scam, but I bought a loaded brake set from Autozone, and whenever I changed out my brakes, I would just change out my whole Caliper assembly also, full lifetime warranty on the loaded set. I currently own two probes and had one in the past. The calipers on all of them are pretty much junk.

Calipers on the probes are notorious for locking up. i had the same problem on my 93. all i had to do was take a wire wheel to the guide pin to get the rust and other things off and its worked great since.

SOURCE: rear anti lock brake light & brake light on in 1991 ford 350e m/h

If the brake light and alb lights are on u need to get it checked out, as this is a warning of a brake problem, and u could find yourself w/out brakes.
1st check the easy things, is tire pressure what it should be in the rear tires? Low pressure on one side would result in the tire running hotter than the other properly inflated side. Is the emergency brake completely off? If on even slightly, it can turn on the brake light. Is brake fluid at the proper level? If low, the brake light will go on. If it's low, u must check for leaks to see why it's low. The abs light on indicates a problem w/ the system, it could be as simple as a broken wire at the rear wheels. u may also have a brake dragging on the rear pass. side, causing the brakes to overheat, which could result in heat transfer to the wheel, and then the tire. This can be checked by jacking up the vehicle (~if u have a sturdy enough jack), and with front wheels blocked front and back, in neutral, engine off, turn wheels in back, see if resistance to turning is the same, or if brakes are dragging, u should be able to tell. Let me know how u make out.

SOURCE: passenger side front brakes locking up

There are a number of problems that can cause that. It could be a bad caliper which is either hanging up or not returning correctly. It could be a bad proportioning valve or ABS motor. It doesn't have to be the passenger caliper that is bad. If the driver side isn't moving then all the brake pressure will go into the passenger side. Check your pads for excessive wear also. Metal on metal contact will cause that or a heat cracked pad could be causing uneven pressure. Check your rotors for glazing as well. If the pads don't grab until high pressure is applied then the brake could lock up. Pads rotors and calipers should cost less than two hundred dollars and if you replace all of them then you shouldn't have to worry about them for another twenty thousand miles or so. Take out the ABS fuse and drive it first and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then it's not the ABS motor. To me, it sounds like a caliper hanging up. Good luck.

Passenger side brake light out


If the fuse is alright (brake and running lights) and the left side brake light works I would suspect a bad ground or socket.
You could use a test light to check if you have power to the bulb. Do this while the brake pedal is depressed. First remove the bulb in question ( look at the left lens a note position of brake light) just mirror the position. With bulb removed ground one end of the test light to a bare metal body part or ground wire. Use the needle end to test the exposed contacts. You will see then once you remove the bulb. One contact is battery + and the other is the ground. While the one lead is properly grounded if the probe touches the contact and the light 'lights' that means its getting power. If either of the contacts fails to light the test light you have a fuse or wire problem.

Through steps like above you can also check the ground by hooking the probe back wards. Connect the clip to the Bat. + and probe the other contact to make sure the ground is working.

Brakes keep locking up


Your e-brake cable is causing this,happened to me,my driver side e-cable was bad causing that side to lock up,messed up my drum.You must replace the e-cable.There's a hole on inside plate,maybe with a rubber plug,you can remove plug and get flat head screw driver and put in hole and push star screw to take pressure off brake,but it will keep locking up till you replace e-cable.check your drum to see if brake shoe ate into it,if so replace the other side one to.This problem will cause you u-joint to go bad,did mine.

2008 ford f250: rear passenger brake,tail and blinker not working. the front blinker and side marker light on mirror works. dash blinker is blinking very fast


could be the tail lite housing. or the ground on the frame rail back near that location. remove the assembly till its hanging by its wires and remove the bulb. using a test lite probe the socket with the flasher on see if it blinks. if not go down under the rear of the truck and unplug the connector for both tail lites and do the same probe each connector on the harness that goes forward till your test lite starts to blink if it does there then the tail lite assembly is bad if not then repost and ill lead you further

Usually one of three places. The right kick panel (just below the dash, forward of the door), under the passenger seat, or under the dash in a plastic box, on the passenger side.

96 Cavalier passenger rear brake lock up when wet or cold


Bad PROPORTION VALVE ... the back brakes should only be doing 30% of the stopping with a bad proportion valve it will send more pressure to the back during braking and cause it to lock up. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
