SOURCE: touchy brakes

It is most likely a warped disk on the wheel that skid's replace the disc. If it has a drum brake then take off the drum check the pads for wear and they are firmly in place.The brake light problem is not connected to the skidding wheel. The brake light switch is on top of the brake pedal if the pedal goes down even a small bit this should activate the brake light switch. If the brake pedal is not moving down when you press it then let off the back brakes a bit they are adjusted to tight (only drum brakes can be adjusted)

The hard braking sounds like a faulty master cylinder and the light problem if I understand your explanation correctly is a brake light switch problem that may just need an adjustment or if corroded or very dirty may need replaced.

SOURCE: No vaccum on brake booster inlet

Did you have the recall done for this ?

The vacuum line from the brake booster is connected to a rubber hose, which goes to a metal tube. This goes towards the back of the intake.
The part on the intake was only hose pushed on the metal tube, and the intake. The recall part had metal spring clamps on it, so it could not come off.
This was only to happen if the intake had a back fire, I don't know if there were other conditions that it could happen.

The recall is 08S05

This is the best text I could find on it

SOURCE: Replaced master break cylinder bench

You have air in the system, no matter that you bench bled the Master cylinder, air got in the system that is the only cause of this symptom other than a defective new part. Follow the guide lines below to bleed brakes.

To properly bleed the brakes, start with a couple of 8-ounce cans of fresh brake fluid. An unopened can has a long shelf life. An opened can should be discarded within a few weeks. Get the vehicle up in the air and remove all four wheels, you might be able to do this with the wheels on if you can swing a wrench on the bleeder valves. PLease read through the instructions completely before you start work, do not let the Master cylinder run dry of fluid.

Have a helper pump up the brake pedal, then open the right rear brake bleeder and bleed it until you don't hear anymore air bubbles coming out and the fluid stream is steady, next move to the left rear wheel and repeat, then to the right front and bleed that wheel cylinder, then repeat at the left front wheel cylinder. A tip hear, soak the bleeders with WD40 before you try to crack them open, DO NOT STRIP/ROUND OFF THE CYLINDER BLEEDERS, Use a box end wrench to get a good bite on the bleeders. When all the air is out of the system the fluid will be steady and not make a spurting noise, do not run the master out of fluid!

My car shuts down when i hit brakes i have new battery.


It may be a ruptured diaphram in the brake booster. It is loosing vaccum inside the booster, and it stalls the engine because vaccum comes from the engine manifold while running. Good-Day! But check the hoses to booster for a leak first! If the booster is bad. Push on the pedal with your hand. and you will hear a hissing sound from booster if bad.

When I start my car the brakes still stay hard they do not depress, you can barely stop the car , what may be the problem?


You will need to replace the Vaccum Booster Hose which runs from the intake manifold to the brake booster. I just fixed mine with parts from Partsgeek.com for less than 1/2 the dealer price. In addition to the Vaceum boster hose you will also need the booster adaptor which locks the vaccum booster hose to the intake manifold.

Power brakes aren't working. hissing noise when braake is stepped on.


Sounds like the vaccum hose is off to the brake booster. Check that its is right behind the brake fluid rev. were you put the fluid in for the brakes. If the line is fine it could also be the booster its self.
