How does the Brake Fluid Level Look? You need to get the Brake System Bled and Could also need to Replace your Pads.

Brake and e brake warning lights stay on happen when i blew a brake line.


If brakes are mushy then you still have air in the lines.Did you bleed all 4 wheels?have wife push brake pedal down once and hold then bleed hold down one and bleed and so on if this has a quick takeup master cylinder pumping 3 or 4 times then bleed wont work

My breaks make a loud huming noise. not the break pads but it sounds like it is a booster problem or something to do with the abs system. the abs light stays on and the break peddle feels good in light...


Well I faced the same problem in a Mercedes one time, I though it was from the brakes and I checked the abs and everything, Drove me nuts. But after a while I found out that it was the differential that made that crazy noise. So try to jack your rear wheels and Inspect the differential by letting the car run in drive and have someone to Push the brakes for you while you do the inspection and dont forget to support the car with stands. Maybe the differential is low on oil or some other issues. Hope this helps.

When push brakes you have to push really hard to make them go in then the truck barely stops. Replaced the MC and bled the brakes now every time push brakes truck acts like its going to die. Brake light...


Sounds like you will have to bleed your brakes again, but thats not the problem og hard brake peddle, need to check your power brake booster, sit right in back of master cylinder, check make sure it has vacum going to it, also to test it with engine off, press on brake peddle three time, then state engine with foot on peddle, peddle should go down a few inches, also with engine of peddle should feel soft for three pumps, if you have none of this , power brake booster is bad.

I have a 2002 sierra gmc 4 x 4, when I come to a rolling stop the break peddle gets hard and you hear the abs working but it not stop you feel the pulse without the break or abs light coming on. I can...


This is a common problem with these trucks. You will need to set-up an appointment with the service Dept. at the dealership. There is an update for the ABS system. The function of this update is to reduce the sensitivity. When you get down to five MPH (with the brake applied) the ABS turns on (no light on dash) and you get the sensation of Sliding (braking is reduced).
This is assuming that the tires are the same size and pressure, And that there are no defects in the wheel speed sensors. Good-luck and please let me know what you decided to do and how it went.

ABS problem with GMC 2002 Sierra


its a low speed abs activation the problem is in the front sensors they need to be cleaned or replaced they [or one] probably has some corrosion on the sensor --[the 99 chevy tahoes had a limited recall over this issue and the fix was to remove and clean the abs sensor or if to corroded replace ] this problem doesnt set off an abs code or trouble light also sometimes the abs will activate by itself at under 4 mph without even touching brake

How do I tell if I need a break master cylinder. The break peddle feels sluggish.


with the engine running with the emergency brake on place the car in gear and press the brake pedal dow. Keep in down for two minutes and pay attention if the pedal starts moving towards the floorboard more. If it does the master cylinder is getting weak and will need a replacement soon

Dodge Dakota overdrive and ABS/brake problem


The problem could be in your differential. If the ABS traction ring has any defects in the teeth, the rear wheel speed sensor will stop registering and disable your ABS.
This may not resolve your transmission concern, but it may answer your ABS/Brake light problem.

I HAVE A 1998 dodge ram 318 1500 two wheel drive the abs and brake light come on but it brakes fine when the brake light and abs light go out i have to really push the pedal down to stop the petal feels...


you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps
