Drive your car down the street at about 25 mph and pull up the emegency brake for about 3 sec and keep your foot on the gas and dont stop. it will make some nosie but it wont hurt it and u will smell the burn. i just did this to my car today...and if it keeps doin it to the same thing..trust me it will work

You have to make sure you bleed the brakes very well. You usually have to replace the brakes in pairs. Example front cylinders/ back cylinders. All the problems that I have had because of this was because of bleeding. Also whenever you replace the wheel cylinders or calipers if your master cylinder is old it may be getting weak. You are increasing the pressure on the master cylinder when chanign new components.

The LF and RR are in an independent circuit of the RF, LR wheels. The master cylinder already has the lines hooked up in a way that if you trace the lines, you can make your own diagram.

Rr.ABS and the brake lights on


CHECK TO MAKE SURE WITH CAR RUNNING VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 VOLTS TO 14.5 VOLTS. USE A DIGITAL VOLT METER TO CHECK VOLTS AT BATTERY. WITH ENGINE OFF BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING BATTERY.THAT WILL MAKE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON AND A FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH WILL ALSO CAUSE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD.HAVE THE ABS BRAKES SCANNED.IN THIS CASE YOU ARE HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.BECAUSE WHEN BRAKE LIGHT COMES ON THATS WARNING BRAKE FAILURE BECAUSE THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS UNIT IS TOGETHER AS ONE.NOT SAFE TO DRIVE.COULD LOSE BRAKE CONTROL AT ANY TIME TOW IT IN.

R/h rear brake locks up


Does it lock when cold (when 1st driven for the day) or after driving for a while? Pull off the wheel and drum and check for evidence of brake fluid (a leaking brake cylinder) or grease (a bad axle grease seal), either of these can cause the brakes to 'grab' or lock up. If this is what you find, you need to correct the leak problem and replace the brake shoes, which have become contaminated with the fluid. You should always change both rear or front brakes together for the best performance. Also check to make sure the springs and other hardware have not broken or become detached from their mounting positions. After driving for a while, carefully touch the wheel where the lug nuts are to see if that wheel is hotter to touch than the others. If it is, the brakes are 'dragging', not releasing completely as you drive, and heating up. This will also cause them to 'grab' or lock up. If this is the case, back off on the adjuster to see if that solves the problem, but more likely, it is a bad brake cylinder (corrosion inside the brake cylinder) which is causing it to hang up, and not release when you take your foot off the brake. If this is the problem, replace the brake cylinder at the rear wheel, and flush out the brake lines to avoid a similar problem in the near future with the other wheels. If the wheel was overheating due to the problem, you also need to replace the brake hardware(springs do not work properly when severely overheated).

What does the anti lock light on the dash mean?


The anti-lock light is indicating that your anti-lock brake system has a problem. Check fluid level. Could be a sensor, time for brake service etc, but I wouldn't wait too long to have it checked, just in case something serious. Anti-lock brake problems may cause a wheel or more, or all, to lock up in a panic stop situation. When was last service on brakes done?

You most likely have a wheel speed sensor dropping out this would make abs system think one wheel is locking up and therefore activate. this usually will happen rt before you stop at around 5mph or so.Also if you have bigger tires than factory and have not had abs programmed for this size it can aggravate it
