SOURCE: Parking or emergency Brake problem

Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.

SOURCE: Brake Light Switch clip on 94 GMC Pickup

My 1996 Brake light clip needed to spread open with a screw driver(some what like a round spring) and with another screw driver push the switch up the pin. The switch will push the clip off the Pin. The pin has a head that needs to clear clip while the spring clip is spread open. It took me a while to figure out.

SOURCE: Brake pedal still goes to floor 2000 GMC Jimmy

It's very possible to be the master cylinder, the o-rings on the piston could be worn, letting the fluid seep back through instead of getting full pressure through the lines. Could also be the brake booster.
Try changing the master cylinder first, which is cheaper and easier, and see if there is a difference, you'll need to bleed the brakes again.
To check the booster,
With the engine off, pump the brakes until the pedal is hard, then hold pressure on the brake pedal and listen for air escaping, or the pedal goes slowly to the floor, Do that after the master cylinder has been changed, at least that will be eliminated.

SOURCE: 1994 GMC pickup front brakes are sticking.

By "sticking" I am assuming that you mean that the brakes are staying applied (calipers are not releasing)and burning the brake pads and rotors up.

The most common cause of this is brake hoses.

The hoses that connect your calipers to the steel brake lines have an inner lining and a reinforced outer "shell". sometimes the inner lining tears loose from the outer shell inside the hose. (It cannot be seen by "looking" at the hose.) The inner lining then starts to act similar to a "heart valve" where it allows fluid to be pushed down into the caliper, then collapses inside the hose, blocking the fluid from returning to the master cylinder when the pedal is released. This can happen just because of the age of the hose, but is more commonly caused by someone allowing the caliper to hang by the hose while replacing the brake pads without using anything to support the weight of the caliper.

To diagnose this condition, raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheels. Make sure that the transmission is in "Park" (Automatic Transmission) or "Neutral" (Manual Transmission) and apply the parking brake. Then start the engine and apply the service brake. (Press HARD on the pedal) Shut the engine off, release the service brake and open the bleeder screws on the calipers. If brake fluid squirts out of the bleeder screw under pressure, then the hoses are the cause of the calipers not releasing.

Why isn't my pcm showing the cause for a check brakes light when I run a diagnostic?


It wont. Brakes are only monitored by a sensors , there are three kinds. One for fluid level, 2 emergency brakes, 3 pads wear. And i doubt your 1994 ford has a pad wear sensor.

How do you adjust emergency brake on a 2001 gmc pickup


Generally all vehicles have self adjusters. They work only when you go in reverse. Try backing up and applying the brakes at quick stops for about 5 to 10 times. You should see a difference in braking when moving forward. If not the rear brakes are in need of replacement. Also if you never checked or filled your brake fluid in the master cylinder and its more than half down you will need brakes all around all wheels

In my 1994 Nissan Pickup my ABS and brake light comes on whenever making right turns. What can I do to solve this problem?


Have you verified your brake fluid level in the reservoir?

Also, be sure your emergency brake pedal/sensor is secure. You may be causing the vehicle to think the E brake is on and if the E brake is engaged, all vehicles with ABS will disable the ABS system.

1994 Jimmy - Rear brakes are dominating after brake job


You need to bleed the whole system. Once this is done it should work better. Make sure you are not low on brake fluid. If the front brakes are disk brakes and the rear are drum breaks, the front really does most of the stopping, the back jjust keeps the car from spinning or swaying. But the main stopping power is in the front breaks. They need to be bled correctly, make sure brake fluid is up and make sure emergency break is not engaged. The emergency break uses a lever and cable to activate the rear brakes. The emergency breaks don't run off brake fluid...

please give good ratings, they are very important...
