Turn signal switch. With you foot on the brake have someone stand behind the car. Wiggle the turn signal lever and see if the the brake lights flicker.

SOURCE: 2001 monte carlo abs traction control lights on

No. What you can do is look for one of the abs sensors that is either disconnected at the wheel hub or use an ohm meter on the connections to test the resistance. If you find one with OL, that is a short and look for a broken wire.

SOURCE: 96 monte carlo rear window brake light works but

This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana

SOURCE: Brakes are still spongy after changing the pads, one caliper, and master cylinder. bled front brakes.

I just went to Brake Masters this morning and had them replace the Master Cylinder since I was experiencing the pedal very spongy and going to the floor. When they replaced the Master Cylinder and they gave me back the car, the brakes were still spongy and going to the floor. I addressed this to them and they took another look at it, but when I took it for a second time, the brakes were extremely spongy. It was almost like they gave me back my car in worst condition to when I brought it in. Can you help?

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Monte Carlo SS and the Traction

may be 2 different problems. traction control uses wheel speed sensors--check sensor alignment and wiring.
Brake light on--check fluid level in reservoir.
I have a couple posts that may help:

My brakes aren't working well. when I step on the break pedal gradually goes down to the floor. At red lights I have to put it on park. I've changed the brake pads, bled them, still don't work.....


1-change brake master cylinder it has damage o rings that losses break due to its age

2-also try to check all hoses pipes for break oil leak include under car pipes that connect master cylinder to the rear wheels

3-check pressure pipes that connect master cylinder to cylinder head

Slow/hard acceleration


I doubt either problem would cause the issue. The sensor would turn the abs light on, but that disables the abs brakes. The axle either works or it doesn't.

6 months ago i replaced brakes on 2006 toyota carolla the driver side brake pads were faulty the toyota dealer said he has to change all pads, why do all the pads need changed?


you need a class in brakes. It's Brakes not bumper chrome.....
first of all ,
you do replace brakes by AXLE.
that is because, they both wear out at the same time!!!
and mixing brands of brakes left and right side (max dangerous, wow!)
and if you replace one bad set, say left. the right will fail soon.
so that means 2 times the costs. and more down time.
and 2 times constant pad checking, (and paranoia added, justified)
all this make senses.?
the rears will last 2 times front, so some folks do replace them only when near low end.

Brakes are spongy


Did you also bleed the rear brakes? Also try the gravity bleed method working from the right rear wheel, then left rear, right front, then left front. Be SURE to keep the master cylinder full at all times while bleeding.

Left front brakes stuckes


caliper may be sticking this will require over haul (new seals maybe pistons) do both calipers as a pair or you may find brakes will drag to the right if you only do left side I've found this out the hard way

If the brake pedal goes to the floor you need a new mastercylinder so have that changed and bleed the brake system,that should fix your brake problem.
