It looks like the brake resevoir low level sensor wire. Get a copy of the Hayes car manual for your vehicle and look at the wiring schematic in it.

How to cintrifugal bleed brakes on a 1969 Chevy c-60 truck?


It is possible you have the linkage to the pedal adjusted wrong, or that the pedal is not returning all the way to the top of its stroke. Also possible the master is bad. I suppose you also could have a stuck wheel cylinder or caliper, or even a bad brake hose swollen inside and preventing fluid from returning.

2005 Toyota Sienna rear brake lights not working. Rear Center light works fine. I have replaced the bulbs and checked fuses. Continuity is good. all other rear lights work fine. What is the problem?


I am wondering if you have a bad ground wire.
Each tail light/brake light had a separate ground wire, that is supposed to be hooked to the ground somewhere.
If it is bad, those lights will not work.
Your center light probably has a separate ground wire.
If you take an electrical meter, test the bulbs with a meter, then stick the meter's contacts inside the socket and press the brake pedal and see if the meter shows "juice".
Often a car wreck/fender bender can break or compromise the ground wire of which I spoke.
God bless your efforts.

Where do you put the brake fluid in a 1998 Chevy malilbu


The brake fluid goes in a reservoir on top of the master cyclinder inside the firewall under the hood.

Open the hood of your 1998 Chevy Malibu and locate the brake fluid reservoir. On a 1998 Malibu, it's located on the driver's side closest to the front windshield. Open the reservoir tank and place the cap in a safe place where it won't get lost. Fill it to the fill line and not above then replace the cap and your done. Now you need to figure out where the brake fluid is going since this is a closed system and if it is low then your brakes are getting worn and more fluid is accumulating in the lines due to more travel of the brake cyclinders or you have a leak. The master cylinder should look like this picture, if you find this helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated

Where do i put brake fluid ?


The brake fluid is to be filled in the brake fluid reservoir.The brake fluid reservoir is fitted on the master cylinder with separate chambers for the primary and secondary circuits.
In cars with a manual gearbox, the brake fluid reservoir serves as the reservoir for brake fluid used in clutch system. A brake fluid level switch is mounted on the brake fluid reservoir. The Level switch contains a float magnet which affects a reed element that closes an electric circuit and warns the driver regarding the condition.The master brake cylinder, which is mounted on the brake servo unit, contains a secondary
and primary piston.

How to change a master cylinder


a Master rates about a 5 out of 10 with 10 being the hardest

  3. Raise and support vehicle.
  4. Remove front wheels.
  5. Remove dust cap and loosen bleed nipple. Connect a bleed tube to bleed nipple and into a suitable container.
  6. Pump brake pedal until all fluid is expelled. Tighten bleed nipple.
  7. Lower vehicle. Install brake fluid reservoir cap. Remove air cleaner and air cleaner outlet tube.
  8. Disconnect central electrical box electrical connector.
  9. Remove central electrical box retaining screw.
  10. Remove central electrical box and relocate to air cleaner area.

Where to put the break fluid?


This is usually located under the hood on the driver's side of the car, toward the back of the engine compartment. Imagine where your brake pedal would end up if it went all the way through to the engine. The brake master cylinder is a small (about 6-by-2 inches), rectangular piece of metal with a plastic reservoir and a rubber cap on top, and small metal tubes leading from it.

The rectangle reservoir on the top of the master cylinder is where you fill. just take the top cap of the reservoir.

Please rate and god bless:)

Brake fluid transfer from Master pump to ABS pump


hi from uk if you are saying that the brake master cylinder reservoir fluid is falling in level? and that there is signes that fluid is leaking from the ABS hydraulic master cylinder ie fluid is leaking from the arpeture where the electrics wiring loom enters then there is probably one of the piston/valve seals leaking within abs assy ? or is leak from somewhere else? not had this problem before with fluid passing from abs assy resulting in reservoir losing fluid in this way?

I have had this problem for over 8 months. Break light would work, blinker would not . . . then blinker would work, break light would not . . . turn headlights left break light would go out . . .

Also the other part needing replaced was the Flasher Relay - $34.00 !! NOONE not even JEEP could figure out this problem !!!
