Question about 2007 Dodge Ram Truck
Every time i press the break pedel there is a dinging noise. No light comes on and the breaks are soft
SOURCE: break bleeding
try bleeding the brakes as a system. start by making sure the master cylinder is full. then have a Friend step on the brakes and release 3-5 times. the last one they should hold as you break lose the bleeder on the passenger side rear, then do the driver side rear ,(check fluid) next passenger front and then the driver side front do each wheel until you don't see any or hear any air, thats the way i have always bleed brake systems. hope this helps

I had the same problem. The issue is with the switch/sensor that is depressed when the door is closed. On mine, there was a white plastic "boot" on the end of the switch that had worn down/cracked. I went to the hardware store and bought a package of rubber tips (the kind that slip onto a chair leg, or end of a pipe, etc.) I pried off the cracked plastic piece and replaced it with the rubber boot. Viola, problem solved.
If your plastic boot is fine, or you don't want a do-it-yourself fix, the switch is easy to replace, and only costs about $5 at the auto parts store.

SOURCE: parking break
One or both of your rear emergency brake cables are/is frozen. Give them both a good soaking with nothing but PB blaster. make sure you get the entire sheilded area. You may at the same time want to adjust up the rear brakes. Now back to that pedal. Have someone under the drivwers side pull hard on the E-bracke center cable while you depress and release the foot pedal. don't do this until the cables have set all night with the spray on them. Good Luck! Thanks, Dana
