2000 chevy cavalier brake problem

I have a 2000 Cavalier with brake problems. Their is no brake lights or abs lights on it at all. I've put new pad on the front. They grab and squeal when you press the brake pedal hard and I have noticed The calibers and drums both get hot from just driving it around. What would cause it to do this? Could the ABS pump be out where all the brake lines meet from the master cylinder? Or something easier?

I have 1999 chevy cavalier. My ABS light is oh.


Drive it. Then have the rear abs brake sensors checked because they seem to be the first to go in a system like that. Someone with a scan tool should be able to read out any trouble codes in the abs system

Chevy Cavalier 2001 ABS Brake problem


You don't say what brakes.

I have had many cavys and worked on them. Great cars.

Your problem sounds like a **** rear wheel cylinder and bad drums/rotors and abs sensor wire.

My car just did everything you describe, I put in new wheel cylinders, drums, brakes, rotors, and 2 new rear brake lines. For less than 200 bucks the car is like new again and has well over 100k.

You can do it yourself. Doesn't take special tools. I followed online how-to's.

2000 chevy cavalier ABS and Brake lights staying on


You had it scanned? They didn't find any codes? If there were no codes, did the ABS computer even communicate? Also did you check the brake fluid, most newer cars have a float switch in the master. If the fluid is low that will set off the lights.

ABS, Brake Light Are On


ABS is near the breaks when you take the tire off and the break pads you will see it it is very small part that is a sensor. mine went on my car when the guys were putting my breaks on it it really has not made to much of a difference in the breaks. they are costly so I just deal with the ABS light for now til summer

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier


Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
