If you remove the glove box you will find the alarm module behind it next to a relay box. If you unplug the module the Jeep should start.

SOURCE: bleeding brake system how?

BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM

Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

Brake bleeding sequence for 1995 buick


Most cars are done the same way:
1: Farthest brake from the master cylinder (rear)2: Opposite side from the first brake.3: Farthest from the master cylinder on the front.4: Remaining brake.
BTW: I would advice using the traditional method of using a clear bottle with some fluid in the bottom and a clear hose running out of the fluid, through the bottle top and which can connect to the bleed nipple. When bleeding fluid, make sure the fluid in both the master cylinder and to the bottle is clean before closing off the bleed nipple. Then pump the brake after bleeding each brake and feel for any softness. If you feel softness after bleeding any particular brake, then you will know that you just introduced air into that brake line, and will need to bleed again.NEVER allow your master cylinder to become totally empty whilst bleeding as this will mean you have to bleed all air out of the total system and start again from scratch. This can be a huge pain!

HI i have bled the brakes but the pedal still travels half way to the floor


You did bleed the brakes? But if you just pushed back the pistons, that is not bleeding the brakes.

I think that either you have air in the system still, or the brake fluid has moisture in it and is boiling, or a brake hose is failing and is swelling out like a balloon, most likely the first.

Cars with ABS can be difficult for the DIY to bleed effectively, you may need a pressure bleeder attached.

Just changed front brake pads and still feels like brakes go to the floor. What is wrong?


check that fluid level is ok, by changing pad and opening calipers you may have lost fluid our of resovoir.

if your discs where not changed or skimmed at the same time you will have ridges, that do not match to the smooth pads, when you drive for a few miles eventually the pads will wear down and form the shape of the discs.

if they continue to be soft, bleed the fluid to make sure there is no air in it, if the brakes are still soft after this you should replace the brake fluid completely if it has not been done for a while as brake fluids absorbes moisture and that makes the brakes feel spongy or soft.


i hope this was useful.

Likely you need to PRE BLEED the m/c. Get a kit from parts stores that hook up where brake lines go, and reroute into the m/c reservoir, then do not let m/c run low on fluid during subsequent bleeding, or start over.

Low brake petal


make sure you have full fluid then bleed the brakes again air can be a ***** to work out so just keep on doing it a few more time to all 4 brakes. look for any leaks while you are bleeding the brakes just to make sure. if your pedal is still soft it could be two things. rotors - did you have the rotors cut. if the rotors are worn down past thickness then your pedal will go farther that it is supposed too. you can bring them in to a napa and they will measure them for you and tell you what thickness they need to be. the last thing it could be would be a bad master cylinder you could try to replace that but i would try all other steps first.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee, hear air bubbling out when I bleed the brakes and have a soft, spongy pedal, replaced the master cylinder, the vaccuum booster, pads, and rotors, what am I missing???


First, inspect all lines and fittings for seepage. If fluid is getting out anywhere, air is entering system as well. Fill the master cylinder and bleed it first. Make sure that when bleeding someone is holding pedal down until after you have closed each bleeder screw.(applies to all bleeders). Bleed the right rear, then l/r, r/f then l/f. While doing this keep checking master to make sure it does not run dry at any point. Make sure that at each wheel there is no more air coming out before you continue on to next one. Sometimes if there is an excessive amount of air, it's good to go around to each wheel twice.(use a small box wrench on bleeders if possible so you can actually see what's coming out.(Another way of doing this is to use a small section of plastic tubing like fish tank air hose, and attach it to end of bleeder (sometimes if hose is too small, it can be warmed in hot water so it expands over nipple.) put the free end in a glass jar with some fluid in it, keeping the hose in the fluid to prevent air from entering, using this method abslolutely prevents air from getting into system while bleeding)
Other causes of low pedal are worn rotors or drums and improperly adjusted rear brakes. If you have ABS, all of this applies but there may be a problem with abs system (usually will turn on abs warning light)
good luck
