Why are the ABS and AWD lights remaining on after start up? I am also feeling a slipping or vibrating when applying brakes hard or on a steep hill.


the feeling from the brakes will be the ABS in operation. Run the fault codes to check ABS system for problems. have the brake system /pads and rotors checked for serviceability.

I have a 1994 oldsmobile cutlass supreme s the break caliper makes noise when I wiggle it I've replaced the pads and bushings could the guide pin bolts be worn please help!!!


By you wiggling it then of course it will make a noise . It is a loose unit that self aligns when in operation and doesn't move like when you wiggle it. The pads are in constant contact with the disc rotor ( held off by the air flow from the spinning rotor )so the movement is very much restricted . Any problem with the rotor will move the caliper to adjust to the problem

Rear brake pads replacement how do i remove and replace i tried to take the calpiper off and got the bolts removed but the old pads are tight againset the rotor


Yes they will be. Especially if you have the parking brake applied. The piston must be pressed back into the caliper cylinder completely to install the new pads. So you need a tool to do this. Ask at the autoparts store where you purchased the pads for the correct tool for you vehicle. You need to pry them back a little to slip the pads past the unworn ridge on the rotor, then use the tool to press the piston back into the cylinder all the way.

Inner brake calipers aren't contacting the rotor at all -- car is '99 Buick Century. Can they be made to work or do we just replace the whole caliper?


You may have bad rotors that are not up to par as even if the rotors are off by .05mm, it will allow the rotor to slip between the pads.

You should have your rotors inspected... and if that's not the cause, then change your calipers

I hear a clicking noice from rear passenger side panel inside my 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Baurer when I turn key on in ignition.


its your rear a/c actuator door in the rear RH side panel. The door is damaged or binding, replace it with a new one. To access this, you must remove the panel or top cover. hopefully this helps

Changing rotors and breaks


When you replace the pads you have to retract the pistons into the bore. As the pads wear they stay extended from the brake caliper. The new thinkness of the pads will not allow the pads the slip over the rotors until you retract the pistons. Your pistons may be the type that have to be turned back into the bore.Good luck.

Brakes


This seems like two different vehicles with two different problems. first the 1997 Ford Explorer- with new rotors and pad. I can almost guaranty that the rotor and pads that were replace are "after market" parts. If it is true,then the brake pad are at fault 95% of the time, the other 5% is the rotor. This because alot of after market parts are alot cheaper and are poorly manufactured out of cheap materials. I would recommend Motor-craft rotors and pads for this vehicle and that would take care of this problem. However if it is original parts on the car the dust shield on the hub may be to blamed, may have gotten bent into rotor during brake job. As far as ABS re-learn braking pattern that all BS that's absolutely 100% NOT TRUE. I am ASE certified in brakes and I never heard of such nonsense. As for the 1999 Explorer this problem is the ABS system applying it self prematurely. The sound that you feel on the pedal is when the ABS is active. Most common reason for this is a bad abs/wheel speed sensor, it could have gotten damaged during the brake job or grease or rust or something is between the sensor and sensor gear/ring. I have seen this many times before, just re-check everything. The abs becomes active because it detects a slip or brakes locking up or in your case maybe a false reading from sensor. Good luck and contact me if you need more help
