Question about Cars & Trucks
The brake pedal of my toyota surf doesn't work properly i fix all the brakes pads and cylinders i even bypass the proportioning valve .. the brake slightly work when you press the pedal, but when you press it further it just like there's something that is blocking it.
If you replace the wheel cylinders or brake calipers and did not bleed them properly, you most likely have air in the lines, If the rear brakes are drum brakes they need to be adjusted (if taken apart or new parts put on) or the pedal may sink when pressed.
1. If the brake pedal is soft when pressed down, the brake lines have air in them and need bleeding to remove the air.
2. a soft brake pedal can also be a bad master cylinder. Replace the master cylinder if the lines have been bleed correctly but the pedal is still soft or sinking when the pedal is pressed.

Its probably how your bleeding your brakes, but first make sure the bleeding nipples are facing upward. You should bleed diagonaly, front pass wheel then rear driver wheel. Then front driver wheel and rear pass wheel. The abs light has its own computer your have to get it scanned to clear the codes and turn off the light

When people tell me they hate there ABS, alot of people who pull trailer do. I tell them just to pull the fuse this will stop them completely. Yeah theres a light ont he dash but that can alos be delt with by removing the bulb for it. But int he long run just pulling the fuse is quick and Free.
