Your best bet is to bleed the entire system starting with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder, and working to the closest one.
Also, if you have drum brakes on the rear, make sure they are properly adjusted as poor adjustment will cause a "low" pedal.
The cap you refer to with wires is the resivour fluid level sensor, and the ring keeps fluid in and contaminants out.

Do you still have the problem ? If so, try disabling the ABS completely (electrically) by disconnecting the 50 amp breaker and remove the ABS controller. You should have brake power restored and be careful as the brakes will lock now if you apply too much foot pedal pressure. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: cant find a way to compress rear brake caliper

Using a "C" clamp I usually use the old pads and gently use the clamp to depress it by turning a little at a time... Make sure to go slow..

Your problem look like if there is still some air in the calipper cylinder.
I suggest you loosen the brake hose at the calliper and completely retract the piston.
Then thighen back the hose and perform a normal bleeding procedure of the front brake lines.

Short of jacking up the wheel and putting a new car underneath, you've just about covered all the possibilities. But I wonder, perhaps in your attempts to solve this, if you have inadvertantly introduced another fault? As you know, the brake master cylinder on a disc braked vehicle has no static valve. If there were to be a static valve in the master cylinder, the brakes would lock on after a few pumps. But this would affect both front wheels. There could also be a collapsed section in one of the flexible hoses which would let fluid through for bleeding but not allow the fluid to return. this would hold the brake on too. When you had the cliper off, did the rotor trun freely?

There is a little plastic piece in your brake pedal that hits the switch to turn the brake lights off. These pieces wear out over time and need to be replaced, they should cost $5 or less at the Honda dealer. They pop in very easily. Just describe your problem to the parts guy and he should know exactly the piece you need. Good luck

On a 1990 honda accord i replaced the timing belt now the car starts but if i let go of the ignition switch the car shuts off


This sounds like a wire got knocked off of the coil. During starting, current bypasses an ignition resistor. Relase key, and that circuit turns off...

Look for wires that may have been knocked loose. go to the coil and find the wire that DOES NOT go to the distributer, and follow that wire....

Replace starter I have the same question but on 1990 honda accord lx


Make sure you push the brake when you atttempt to remove it from park, and that the "tension" is released from the steering wheel as well - I think there is a brake interlock that ensures the brake is pressed before it releases the shifter - these solenoids sometimes go bad as well, so it could be that.
