    Sounds like you still have air in the front calipers. How are you bleeding them?You should never have to "bleed" the ABS system unless a hydraulic component of the ABS system has been replaced.When you bleed the fronts is somebody in the car pushing the brake pedal?

This system is equipped with active ABS brakes, a special tool that holds the valves open for bleeding in the ABS hydraulic control block must be uses to bleed the brakes. Any good brake shop will have this tool, there is no way around this, you must use the tool to bleed the air out of the system.

    I disagree. The Brake system operates independently of the ABS system. Yes the brake lines pass through the ABS system but there should be no need to bleed the ABS system. You should also not need a special tool to bleed the brake system. I have serviced brakes on many of these and flushed/bled many of these without any need to use a special tool or bleed the ABS system unless the ABS has been serviced.

    If his brake pedal is rock hard with the hoses pinched than there is air in the calipers. If there where air in the system before the hoses the pedal would be the same whether the hoses where pinched or not.

I ave a low growling noice and brake pedal pulses


As a general rule, if the wheel shakes when you apply the brakes, the front disk rotors are warped. If the brake pedal pulses when you apply brakes, the rear brake rotors are warped. So you most likely have warped rear brake rotors. The noise may be that the wear indicators on the brake pads are touching the disks, indicating that you need new brake pads. Given both of these, I suggest a trip to the local brake repair centre is needed.

There is a switch behind your brake pedal, make sure it is not stuck in the closed position, or you may need to replace the brake pedal switch.

Gear shift stuck in park, cannot get it out, 2007 chrysler 300 rear wheel drive .... no chrysler dealership close by ... pruchased from Mission Chrsyler, bankrupted .. what can I do


Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brake lights and/or shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Is the brake pedal coming all the way back up? Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push and release the switches with your finger. Depress the brake pedal to get it out of the way. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector. Check fuses and the bulbs. Is shifter fully in Park?

If all else fails, and your shifter is on the center console, you can disassemble the console to the point where you have access to the shifter mechanism and possibly remove the soleniod pin that is locking the shifter in park. Good luck!

Why is the break sometimes high and sometimes low


not sure if you mean while driving or when parked with the ignition off but here are a couple reasons on why the brake pedal may be high and low at different times. If the vehicle is running the brake pedal will feel the same just about every time. If the car is off and you step on the brakes it will get harder and harder to push down since there is no vacuum assist. Another reason would be the brake pad thickness. New brakes the pedal will feel higher where as worn brake pads the pedal may feel lower. Another reason would be if you have air in the brake lines. this will make the pedal feel mushy and soft at first and firm up as you pump the brakes. Hope this helps.

My van is a chrysler voyager 2000 and its parking break light on the console has been lit on and off.


If it is just the red light that is on , and not red and yellow ABS , it is most likely the emergency brake pedal switch located on the top of the pedal , make sure the pedal fully retracts when released ,
Another possible cause could be low fluid in the master cylinder caused by worn brakes !
check your fluid first if its low check all your brakes .

Very low brake pedal


Hi,
It is very possible there is still air in the system, as ABS systems can be awkward.
This may be a case of taking it in to a garage - just to "change the fluid", as a vacuum type filler may be needed to put things right.

LOW BRAKE PEDAL ON 4 WHEEL DISK BRAKES


Check the pads/rotors to see if they need to be replaced.
Check the brake fluid level. If low it could mean the pads/rotors need to be replaced. If replacing also replace the brake fluid.
Two years probably means you need a brake job.

Otherwise you may have air in the brake lines which you can bleed off.
