Brake pedal soft


You still have air in the brake system and this becomes evident when the operation of the booster allows the pedal to do down as it is compressing the air in the lines more efficiently than what you can do with your foot. Try starting the bleeding procedure but undoing the lines at the master cylinder and priming the unit first to get the air out of both sides of the unit. Tighten the lines and with the help of a assistant start at the longest line first and work back to the shortest. Booster failure will result in no assistance or engine stopping from a massive vacuum leak when the valves are opened. The abs is just a motor driven pump that supplies pressure to the brake system when the wheel sensors come into operation otherwise the brake pedal pressure is operating through the ABS unit to the brakes. (An ABS is only there to keep the brake pressure constant as the sensor opens and closes a valve to stop the wheel skidding . If it is not working then pressure from the pedal may bleed back leaving you with no brakes.)

Why is my brake pedal vibrating ? I had my brakes fixed and have new tires so what else could be causing the vibration ?


Two possible causes to the pulsing. Lets start with the least expensive first. Warped Rotors. Brake rotors/discs get extremely heated during braking and if you drive in the rain or drive through some standing water at the right time, the Heat and Cool cycle of the braking and then quenching by the water can cause the metal to warp. Even a slight warp will cause some vibration in the front end and a pulsing in the pedal. If the rotors havent been turned during the brake job or replaced I would look here first. The only way to determine is if the wheel is taken off and rotor visibly inspected. Second and most costly is the ABS Control module. Best way to explain is in a small box under your car in the middle by the drivers car door are 6 little plungers... to visualize think suction cups arranged like a 6 pack of coke. When you press your brake peddle in an ABS car these plunger open and close valves to in effect pump your brakes very very rapidly. ABS systems took the old 1970's pump the brakes and automated it. That helped prevent skids when people slammed on brakes during wet weather or accidents. They are controlled by a computer unit called a Control Module (Kelsey ABS Control for GM vehicles) when this starts to go bad you get the pulse in your pedal as the ABS system actuates improperly. Good news is even if the ABS controller goes out you WILL still have brakes, just not ABS brakes. Now lets get to cost. A rotor for your car depending on quality and type runs from 25 to 85 dollars (higher price is for more of a racing/speed type set up with frequent braking not everyday driving.. they are slotted and drilled to dissipate heat faster) Labor at a local mechanic to replace is going to be about $80. The ABS Controller module for your car runs from $745 up to $1100 dollars and the replacement cost is going to be about $200 for labor.

Brake and abs lights stays on in a 2003 gmc safari wile driving after a small period of time. put new pads and there's no leaks in the calipers


Have the ABS Distribution Unit/Computer checked at the dealer.

NOTE: ABS Unit located under the vehicle, under the drivers seat. Listen to it with the vehicle running with no brake on... if you hear ABS motor running continuously, unplug ABS fuse in fuse block under hood to turn ABS motor off and be able to use vehicle in the meantime whether you decide to get the ABS fixed or not.. This will not affect brake operation, but will disable ABS feature. ABS and Brake idiot lights will remain on. No way to turn them off short of having the correct repair done. ABS Distribution Unit/Computer is very expensive part and requires expensive labour for replacement.

Abs and brake lights remain on


and your speedo prabably doesnt work also. Very common for the ABS module to short out.
You will need to have it diagnosed but 99% sure you will need to remove the unit and get it replaced or rebuilt.

Go to modulemaster.com. They have some info on these units and will tell you how to remove it so you can still drive the truck while its being repaired. A rebuild will save you hundreds of dollars if you opt to go this route.

My brakes lose power system intermittently


It's quite possible you may need to check out your ABS system. Certain GM light trucks of that year, and a few in subsequent years had issues with the EBCM (electronic brake control module) These units are mounted on top of the ABS valve body, under the vehicle, on the left frame rail (all the brake tubing is attached). Sometimes the faulty unit would cause the electric ABS motor to continue running even after ignition shut down. Sometimes they would cause erratic ABS actuation.The other thing may be a faulty vacuum check valve at the brake booster. If that valve goes bad, your brake pedal will be really high and hard to depress. On some 1/2 ton GM trucks with vacuum assist power brakes, there is an electronic sensor that measure vacuum to the booster. In those instances typically a warning message will come across the drivers info center on the instrument panel. I hope this info can help.

VW Jetta 4 brakes binding


Sounds like brake master cylinder not relieving the pressure or if fitted the bias valve.How do you get it to unbind?Because its not consistant its hard to lock it down to a specific cause.If it isnt faulty when testing its impossible to diagnose.The problem seems to be getting worse so the fault will eventualy be able to be locked to a cause.If you have Abs the previous brake disc pad replacement may have been done incorrectly and messed with the abs or a wheel sensor could be faulty and the abs is once again being affected.
