SOURCE: rear brakes uneven breaking as per mot tester

The Chardes have a diagonal split system, so one of the front discs is plumbed to the diagonally located rear drum.

You may need to check the front brakes too and that they have been bleed properly.

Other common cause of uneven braking are:

seized wheel cylinder;
brake hose obstruction or weakend wall;
weak pull off spring on shoe;
uneven drum roundness;
compensator/proportioning valve dicky.

SOURCE: cant access cars computer for codes. it denies ob2 tester access.

I have the same problem. I found out that in 95 chevy used the connector for an OBD-2 system and the PCM for an OBD-1. In order to access the computer you need a scanner that fits the OBD-2 connector and reads the OBD-1 PCM. I called around and either you can take it in (if drivable mine is not) to Knechts and they will scan it for free. Auto zone carries the CP9185 accutron scanner for 250 dollars and if it does not work for some reason you can take it back as long as you don't ruine the package. Other companies make scanners that will work but they all cost 250 or more. Good luck.

SOURCE: RPM Tester: Hello! I am looking for a tester of engine RPM.

Led are easy to read,but is it worth the money? Once you use it you just put it away for how long? Turn on the car, A.C. and tune the rpms to the lowest point of idling without killing the fuel-to-air mixture and where the idles soften any vibrations.

Brake lights and tai lights don't work


Sounds like you're going to have to start by getting a tester (if you don't have one already) and check the light sockets for power. AFTER checking fuses.

A simple tester like this is all you need;
6 12V Circuit Tester with 12 Ft Lead

IF there's no power to the sockets then there should be a connector for the tail/brake lights under the rear of the truck. Check there for power for the lights. If no power then trace the wires along the frame to see if you may find pinched or broken wire(s).

Electrical problems can sometimes become a challenge. I try to go about it in a methodical manner and not 'helter skelter'.

You've already changed the bulbs so those shouldn't be the problem. Now you need to check where the power stops in the circuit.

i hope this helps.

No power to left rear turn/ brake light


Check the display. Ask a helper to step on the brake pedal while you check the lights from the rear. If no lights appear, check the fuse that connects the brake lights. The owners manual will show the location of the fuse box and which fuse is for the brake lights. Pull out the fuse and look at the wire in the central window. If the wire is broken, replace the fuse. Make sure the new fuse is not blown, and carries the same amperage.
Take note of lights that are out, if any are working. The problem may be cured by replacing the bulb in a brake light that's out. A burned out bulb has a broken filament and a dark brown spot on one side. Check the owners manual for bulb type.
Check the circuit if replacement bulbs and fuses do not restore the lights. Find the wiring diagram in the vehicle assembly manual. The circuit for the brake lights runs from the battery to the fuse, to the pedal switch, to a connection plug, to the lights. The circuit has to be checked with a volt tester at all points.
Check the battery power and the light on your volt tester. Turn the ignition key far enough to activate the electrical systems. Turn on the lights to check for battery power. If the battery has power, ues it to check the volt tester. Put the black lead (the ground) from the volt tester on the negative battery terminal. Briefly touch the red tester light on the positive terminal. The light on the volt tester should flash brightly.
Test the wiring to the fuse. Clip the ground wire to solid metal near the fuse. Touch the light tip to both sides of the fuse. Both should light the tester. If neither side lights, the wire between the battery and fuse is bad. If only one side lights, the fuse is blown.
Test the switch and wiring. Touch the light tip of the tester to both terminals on the brake pedal switch without putting any pressure on the pedal. One should carry power and the other should not. When both show power, the switch is stuck and the brake lights are always on. If neither shows power, the wiring between the fuse and the switch is bad. Now check both switch terminals while the pedal is depressed. Both sides should light the tester. If not, the switch is bad.
Check the connection plug. Unplug the connection and refer to the vehicle manual to identify the brake light wire. Touch the tester light on the brake light wire at the inner socket on the battery side. If the tester lights, the power is flowing to this point. If not, the wire between the plug and the pedal switch is bad.
Check the socket. Plug in the connector plug and remove the bulb. Touch the contact inside the socket. If the tester lights, the socket is good. The socket and wire running to the plug should be replaced if the tester doesn't light.
Check the bulb with the ground wire. The bulb must be in its socket. The ground wire running to the socket should be black or brown. Stab the tester through the insulation. If the tester lights, the bulb is good. Replace the bulb if it doesn't light.
Check the ground wire. Remove some of the insulation around the ground wire. Twist one end of the extra wire around the exposed ground wire. Touch the other end to a solid piece of metal. If the brake light comes on, the ground wire is bad.

Ive just bought my audi a4 S.E 1.8 petrol 1998.. with 164k...when i bought it the abs lightt was on and also the brake warning indicator light comes on and stays on flashing,and at the same time the abs...


as the mot only says the "brakes work"to a certain efficiency,(the tester does NOT check the depth/thickness of the pads),chances are your pads/discs are in need of replacement.the pads have sensors in them for wear depth, so when checking the pads,front AND rear the abs sensors can be cleaned,and if done by a seat/skoda/vw/audi dealer they can put it on the diagnostic computer to give you a definative answer (this is cheaper than guessing) I replace the pads myself but get the car "diagnosed"when any red light shows.

Need to replace the fuse for 1998 Explorer brake lights


Check for the busted fuse in the fuse box. This can be done using a multi-tester, Set the tester to 1 x 10 Ohms. Using a multi-tester, put one probe of the tester to one end of the fuse, while the other probe to the other end of the fuse. Good fuse will move the pointer to zero,
while bad ones won't. Check the fuse one by one.

Left turn signal does not work on trailer


You might get lucky and someone will have them, but if not for 20.00 you can buy the complete service manual for your vehicle at alldatadiy.com, I use them regularly, if I already had a subscription on several cars but not yours, if I did I would be glad to email it too, I'm not sure you need a diagram to fix this though! I can tell you things to check. If you need me too, I am assuming you have checked your fuses for the trailer lights? and have tested that you are not getting current to the light?
