If the abs light comes on, it means you have an abs issue. If you do, the brakes revert to normal power brakes with no ABS function.

WHen the vehicle has no power, do you feel the brakes slowing the car or do you hear the abs chattering?

How do I fixed if my car hand brake stuck 2001 toyota coralla manual


There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn. Then pull the hand brake leaver on two clicks and adjust the hand brake cable till the rear wheels just start to bind, release the hand brake leaver and check the wheels are free to turn.

Wheel smokes,brake dragging


Make sure your handbrake cable is adjusted properly. Adjust the rear brake shoes down to where the wheels turn freely with the linings only just touching the drums. Be sure to pump the pedal a few times after adjusting, then try again.
The front wheels (pads and calipers) will just about never bind, so concentrate on the rear wheels. If you do suspect the front wheels, release the bleeder valve for just a second and then try again.

Truck has 195,000 on it. after it has been running for a couple of min the abs light and the parking brake light both come on, brake fluid is full, has new front hubs with abs sensor in them (last year),...


Yes the rear has sensors, but seeing you just had front pads installed, I'd look for a loose or broken wire in the front first. I've installed front pads with the sensors and thought I got them installed right, come to find out they were not making good connection on the pads.

2002 Silverado right rear wheel locking up.


You will need to have the parking brake adjusted to the minimum clearance possible and double check the shoes & drum while off.

It sounds as though the shoes are loose, they move forward, grab & unil you center the brakes by applying them and then they release until put into a bind again.

These usually don't get adjusted or even looked at since they are hidden inside the brake rotor hub on the rear wheels.

good luck.

Binding hydraulic brakes


Do not know MOT, but put the rear axel on support and in neutral with no brakes, turn the wheels to feel the friction... if there, remove the rubber slot cover from the inside of the shoe mounting plate and reduce shoes to minimum adjustment.... if at minimum already, you must remove the shoe and grind out he pivot contact point to allow the shoes to move toward the axel more ie. get away from the drum... if disks, you must find a way to give the disk and pads more clearence. good luck, hny

Rear brake replacement


hi to get the pads in you did screw the calipers pistons all the way back and you should have backed the hand brake cable off as well then adjusted the cable afterwards problem with self adjusting calipers is you can adjust the handbrake cable and the brakes are ok until driven then they can bind so try backing the adjustment off on the handbrake [should really change both calipers as a pair to keep the axles brake balance but this is not anything to do with the brakes binding] best of luck paul
