Brakes click when the peddle is pressed while on and in park

When the kia is in park and the engine is one, any pressure on the brake peddle causes a clicking noise once. I can press the peddle down any amount without additional sounds but the moment i fully release the peddle there is another click. There are no noises while in drive or reverse and I did not notice any reduced ability in the brakes

IF IT ONLY MAKES THE NOISE IN PARK THEN IT'S FINE ITS THE SWITCH THAT ALLOWS YOU TO SHIFT INTO GEAR

Testimonial: "That makes perfect sense in hindsight, as I could have sworn the clicking was coming from the shifter. I don't know why it has started making the noise now but it gives me no end of peace of mind to know its harmless."

Shifter wont come out of park 2005 equinox awd


Only thing which come to mind is the brake peddle has to be depressed to take out of park. If you are pressing it, is the brake light coming on. If brake lights are not coming on could be brake peddle switch. Sorry if this doesn't just my thought for now.

There is a running pump sound when I put on brakes and sometimes when I don't hit brakes and a grind sound


Shelly, in most cases, these can be cured by replacing your brake pads/shoes. However, you stated that you are hearing a "pump" sound when you depress the brake peddle. So this is telling me that you may have either a vacuum issue, or having an issue with your "Brake Booster". That also runs off a vacuum. A little info for you. ^^ When your engine is running, the entire system is put under a negative vacuum. This controls things like cruise control, and vacuum assisted brakes. Older vehicle did NOT have a vacuum assist, and were called "Manuel Brake" systems. While these were more reliable, the were harder to push the peddle until the brakes worked. As an example, with your car turned off, depress your brake peddle about 3 times and then try to press it as if you were stopping. You will find that the peddle is much harder to press than if the engine were running under the vacuum. The reason I asked that you depress the peddle 3 times, is when the engine is off, you are no longer building pressure, so this pressure is naturally bled off when you use the brakes. If this does not happen, and your brakes are always hard to depress, then for sure your having a problem with your brake booster. I hope this helps, and good luck. ^^

Wont shift out of park, brake lights dont work


your brake switch is broken, its on the top of brake peddle. It wont shift from park because you need to press brake to shift from park and with the switch not working it doesn't know your pressing the brake. check connection on switch if its fine you need to replace.

I get a hissing sound by my brake peddle when I apply my brakes and it does not go away. When I run the engine and depress the brake peddle and hold it there and turn the engine off the brake peddle...


Your bake booster has failed causing a massive vaccume leak when you apply the brakes. That in turn gives more air to the system so the computer tells it to add more fuel thus causing the rpms to go up. Replace it %99.5 chance that will fix it.

What possible cause the parking brake light remains lit after starting the engine?


Parking brake still on or a malfunctioning switch. You sure it's the parking brake light and not the "blown brake line light"?

Will not come out of park!


The 2001 Kia Sportage is equipped with a brake safety interlock. When you depress the brake pedal you should hear a click coming from the base of the shift lever. The click is a safety interlock which prevents accidental shifting out of park unless you have your foot on the brake. This is the most common cause for the vehicle shifter to be stuck in park. There is a switch that is activated by the brake pedal, the switch in turn energizes an interlock, which makes an audible click, allowing movement of the shift lever out of park position. If you do not hear a click when applying the brake it is most likely either the brake switch contacts or interlock solenoid.

Bleed them again, and don't leave the bleeder open, every time the person lets up on the pedal. close on the way down and open and close next time etc. Your letting air back into the system. Don't let the master run dry.

Parking brake on my 01 kia rio(standard) no longer holds


parking brakes are adjusted at and with the rear brakes,..(drum brakes that is),.....as you adjust the rear brakes to have a slight drag as you spin tire, the parking brake is adjusted at the same time,...they work together with that one adjuster,....as you pull on the parking brake, it makes the brake shoes spread apart just as they do when you push the brake peddle,..by adjusting the rears you'll also find that the brake peddle feels better too.
