Possible brake issue caused by warped rotor or sticking brake caliper. If it pulses when braking have the rotors turned or replace them. Would also replace the brake pads while you have it apart. Old pads should be the same thickness for both inboard and outboard pad. If one is thinner than the other it is an indication that the caliper is sticking or hanging up.

TCC Release Swith needs to be fix. How do I do it?


Check your bake lights. If they don\'t come on, replace the brake switch (located on the brake pedal arm, under the dash) This is what controls the TCC solenoid off control. The jerk you feel is the transmission downshifting from overdrive to 4th or 3rd, depending on your transmission. If the lights come on, then you need to trace wires to the transmission to the brake switch or ECM.

For some reason my 98 honda accord 2.3 engine. Its starting to jerk slightly when I drive over 45 miles an hour nd I break to a complete stop thats when I feel the jerk. Sometimes the jerk can be harder...


Front brake rotors need to be turned and new pads. Adjust rear brakes. the front brakes are doing all of the stopping. (overheating the rotors, premature pad wear).

My 2008 dodge avenger jerks when i come to a stop any idea what it could be.?


Jerks coming to a stop as in engine jerks, or does it seem like the brakes are jerking. When you leave off the pedal does it stop jerking? If it does it is probably warped rotors. A lot of new cars have this problem, my theory is that the brake pads they are using are way too hard. They put way too much heat into the rotor and warp it. Of course the rotors are none too heavy either. I think it is all in an effort to reduce weight in the vehicle.
