Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
I just recently had 4 new tires put on my Sportage, new breaks and rotors, and new calipers and hoses. My car started to drive real slow idling high then its would stop after a few miles but then the break pedal was very hard to press down. Not sure whats going on can you help?
Hello...get the vehicle back to the shop that worked on it....Sounds to me like one or more of the calipers won't release it's grip when you release the brake pedal or the master cylinder is locked...Think about it...it's like driving with your foot on the brake pedal....or maybe your power brake booster...anyway...Get it back to the shop that worked on it and bring your receipts for all the work done...Let me know what happens...I hope this was helpful...PEACE........

Your Tire Pressure Management System is extremely sensitive. Some makes are known to trip with just 5-8 psi. difference. Have the pressure checked again on all tires including the spare. Make sure the spare is up to proper inflation. VERY important. It is possible that the sensor inside the tire as well as any wiring associated with the system under the wheel wells could have been damaged. Start by making sure the pressures are all within system range. The owners manual will stipulate this and all info you may need to troubleshoot on your own. good luck.

This is just a consequential event. the ABS sensor module was probably going out and decide the trigger the alarm at the same time you initiated the hard brake during travel. replacing or resetting this sensor module Will fix this issue. the light will go off as well.
Please rate and god bless.

If brake and abs light come on check the brake fluid level first
