    Were rotors replaced, or resurfaced? What exactly did get done so far?

    Does it grind all of the time or just when you apply the brakes?

1995 geo prizm ebrake light is on. Is this a faulty sensor? I heard it could have an brake indicator wire that makes contact with to let you know youre pads need to be changed.


Your brake pads don't have any kind of wire going to your brake pads that will make the brake light come on, check your master cylinder for low on brake fluid, if low look in back of tire's for wetness, if none, top of master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid, and have your brake pads checked for wear.

Metal grinding around the front driver area under my feet. then the brake went to the floor. What could be wrong?


Get yourself to the brake shop today! Your brakes are dangerously worn out. It might be better to be towed to your favorite garage.

I'm sorry you are finding out about brakes in this manner. Please, get them repaired. If you are in North America, expect to pay $500.00 for a complete repair of the front brakes.

My brakes are grinding and my brake lights are on...What is the problem?


You needed to pay attention when the wheels started squealing several months ago. Pads are down to the rivets and grinding into the rotors.... time for a complete brake job... and a pricey one at that.

Grinding sound in front


Check your front brakes. If the fluid in the brake master cylinder is down so are the brake pads

Grinding under car while driving - brakes dont work HELP!!!!!!!


Sounds like one of the front brake cylinders leaked brake fluid onto a scored brake rotor. The brake rotor was previously damaged by a worn brake pad. The brake pad wore down to the retaining rivets and created a "groove" on the rotor (like an LP vinyl record). The brake fluid in the groove causes the brakes to seize and make a really loud vibrating grinding sound.

Do a brake job yourself ($50):

1. Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid.
2. By now you know which wheel is leaking brake fluid (front right??)
3. Remove tire and wash the area with mild soap (detergent is ok for this).. including the scored rotor.
4. Purchase brake cleaner spray at an auto parts store and spray all brake parts of the afected wheel.
4. Remove / replace rotor.
5. remove / replace brake pads.

If you want to have a brake shop do the brakes ($175), do steps 1 through 4. You should be able to drive the vehicle to the nearest brake shop, after you test-drive the vehicle in your safe driveway..

If the above description does not match with what you find, then do not drive vehicle. Have it towed.

After replacing drive side caliper, both front disk brakes, and rear drum brakes, bleed all three lines, both my front calipers lock grinding my front brakes. I am going to re-bleed my lines tomorrow but...


I assume you mean that you replaced the front pads and rear shoes. Or did you also replace the disks and drums?? Either way you should be ok unless you also replaced the slave cylinders on the rears.
The fluid flows back up to the Master Cylinder as you squeeze the calipers and the slaves to fit the new parts in. Some people pre-fill the caliper to reduce the amount of air and make bleeding easier.Now .....Grinding better be a wrong choice of words. Possibly you spilled fluid on the pads while bleeding the lines. This will cause a binding and shuddering when you apply brake pressure. This will also make you think the lines are not bled properly because of the increased pedal pressure you are putting on the wet/lubricated front pads. If so, replace the pads. Don't try washing them with aerosol cleaner cause it takes more time and money than simply changing them.

Sounds like the master cylinder isn't releasing pressure after you remove your foot... Usually the calipers hang up, but you replaced them so...replace the master cylinder and bleed the brakes
