Question about 1993 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

1993 Buick Lesabre

The brakes seems like you have to push them all the way to the floor before you can get stopped. I had a buick dealer look at them and they put brake pads on one side but I still have the same problem. In the notes the tech made it says would need ABS module to make complete reapors and says that will run $1000.00. How much would it be to order the ABS module and how easy to replace if I can find a friend to help me out?

You could find the part for a lot less than a thousand dollars but you're talking about the dealership here. If you're not sure how hard it is to replace please take the car to a reputable mechanic, as the ABS is a safety control feature and if you and your friend install it incorrectly then you may have an accident in which you or someone else may be seriously hurt and it would be your own fault. On a lighter note check that you have the correct level of brake fluid and that all your brake pads have sufficient lining on them, bleed your brake lines of air as this will cause the pedal problem that you described.

1993 buick lesabre 3.8L wont come out of park?i crank car up,hand shifter will not move out of park.


Step on brake pedal and see if you have brake lights. The brake light switch release the solenoid to let it shift. If brakes lights work then the solenoid could be defective. Also the fuses should be checked for the brake lights if they don't work.

1993 Buick LeSabre won't shift out of park when cold


if you have to push the brake to move it out of park there is (for lack of the proper name) a thing by the shifter you can remove and it won't bother anything or your brake pads need to be replaced for the electrical i would try spraying compressed air or another electrical cleaner in the crcracks to remove the dirt

When need to brake have to push pedal to the metal why?


I would say the brake Master Cylinder is worn out. Check inside all the wheels for signs of brake fluid also. You might have a blown brake line or hose.

1993 buick lesabre changed the front rotars and pads and now the cars brake pedal is so hard to push down to get car to stop. Mechanic has checked both the front and back brakes and they are fine. T


I would jack up a front wheel and see if pushing on the pedal with the engine running will stop the wheel from turning.
You need to know if the pressure is reaching the wheels, or if the pads and rotors are too slick to stop the car.
Usually if the pedal is hard, the booster is not working or the brakes are glazed.
Can you stop the car with the parking brake ? That only uses the rear brakes.
You may need a second opinion from a different shop.

Brakes uneven and jerky


this could just be "sticky pads" or there worn right down to there limit
you still need to strip the brakes out to check them out,,if there sticky put some copper grease on the back of the brake pads,,not on the brake pads!!!! only the backs fo them this stops then sticking and also from squealing,,

Sounds like a bad master cylinder. Possibly a bad power booster with the leak you are describing. Check for leaks in lines/hoses/wheel cylinders as well.

1993 Buick Lesabre Brake Lights & Signal


I hate to tell you this but its going to be a tough issue to find. You will need to check all the light bulbs are the correct bulb. Make sure they are correct not what was in there. I would check the brake switch on the brake pedal to make sure it is ok. then you will need to trace all the wires to find the short.
