Check the fuse for the back-up lights. Also, check the bulbs themselves.

SOURCE: can not push the caliber piston back to install

hydro...you ever get brain lock...or is it hydrolock?
Mad guy...Disconnect the caliper from the brakeline. If caliper retracts you have an internally failed line (rubber hose). if it does not retract, caliper piston may be frozen, or the piston cocked in the bore while you were pushing it back in. If that's the case you can rebuild it, but the price on most reman calipers is low so you may consider replacing it.If the ont on the opposite side si balky, replace both.

SOURCE: front calibers keep locking up on my 96 dodge dakota 5.2

I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Awd,

Disconnect the harness and then check the brake light switch near the brake pedal. It can be checked with an OHM METER for continuity. If its an open (OL) displayed in the meters window replace the switch. The brake light switch on the pedal area operates the 12 volt lamps at each side of the vehicle only. The upper brake light operates on a 110 inverter since the bulbs are 110 volts. Upon wiring the trailer harness wire the brake lights to the same circuit to the tail lamp circuit for each side. You probably had them wired to the directionals instead causing this problem

How to change rear brakes on 2003 PT Cruiser


loosen the tire lugs while tire on the ground, jack up the vehicle and support it with a jack stand, secure vehicle to prevent rolling and make sure it is in park with the engine off. now finish up loosening the lug nuts and take off the wheel. now open the brake oil filler cap, if it is a disc brake set up get a pry bar or large flat head screw driver and insert it between the brake disc and the rotor and pry it loose to push the brake caliber piston back in its seated position now remove the screws that hold the caliber normaly 2 screws. now clean the caliber with cleaner you might have to push the piston back more using a c-clamp or a large channel lock or you can buy a tool that you twist to seat the piston back into the caliber. mount the new disc pads match them to the old ones re position the caliber into its place and re install the 2 mounting bolts, do the same for the other side and once done get in the car and pump the brake peddle to push the piston against the disc pads mount the wheels and tighten the lug nuts remove jack stand and lower the vehicle, check your brake fluid level and top it off if needed secure oil cap get into the vehicle start it and pump brakes again for several times until it feels hard. now you can take it on a test drive. drive about 20 mph for a several yards come to a complete stop do that for about 8 times to set the brake pads, buy brake pads with life time warranty and save the box and the receipt when you are ready to change them again take them off and put them in the box and take them to be exchanged you can buy a book at the auto parts place they list the complete instruction for disc brakes and brake shoe. for brake shoes we recommend you read the book as there are too many little parts to deal with

Brake pads


The part that is hitting it is the brake caliber. The piston needs to be pushed back in. Get a 4-inch clamp and a piece of wood and put the wood over caliber, then clamp and tighten and push the piston back in.

Replace rear rotors 2004 jeep cherokee


Heres what you will need to do this type of job. First you will need a rachet and metric sockets with an extention if available. Also you will need somthing to press the caliber piston back into place a special tool or some kind of press would work . A plastic auto hammer to knock the rotors loose, somtimes they can be difficult to remove. Pliers would be needed as well as a screw driver to help mount the caliber or pads back into place. One thing to keep in mind is that if you indeed are replacing the rear rotors, it is recommended to get new pads as well. This is for the reason that old pads will cause break sqealing since they are not surfaced perfectly straight for the new rotor. Step one will be to get the caliber of the vehicle so if there is a medal clip on one of the studs just use the pliers to rip it off. Then use the rachet to remove two bolts holding the caliber. After you remove those bolts, there should be another two bolts holding the caliber bracket as well, do the same procedure in removing those. IMPORTANT do not let the caliber hang by the brake cable, put it on a stand or in a location where it is not free fall hanging. Now you should just have the rotor left, try pulling on it to see if it breaks loose, if not then use your plastic hammer to bang in the back of the rotor and knock it loose that way. If I remember correclty those rear rotors will have brake shoes underneath. Do not wory about those they are there for your emergency brakes. Now put the new rotor on and make sure it is securley installed on the wheel hub. Install you'r bracket first, then begine to install your caliber back into place. NOTE the caliber may not install to easy onto the rotor for the reason that you will need to compress the piston inside with either the special tool or some type of press. If you compress it and you hear brake fluid dripping down, it is nothing to worry about, its just the fluid being pushed back by pressure. Install the caliber and pads the same way as removal paying close attention to the other side if your not sure of how the originally were installed. When all this is finished look up brake bleading on YOUTUBE.com to accurately bleed your brakes and remove any air inside that may cause spongy or moister inside your brake lines.

Hope this Helps!

How do you remove the front disc brakes?


To remove the front disc brakes , you must remove the break caliber assembly . Keep in mind that on some brake calipers a special Torx Drive T40 or T45 must be used to remove the caliber bolts from the spindle assembly . Also , Allen (Hex) bolts are sometimes used . Be sure you have the right tools .
1. Properly block both rear wheels at the front in the back of each wheel.
2. Loosen the lug nuts on both front wheels one turn on each nut.
3.Jack up and support the front of the car on Jack stands with the wheels one to 2in. off the ground.
4. Remove the two bolts on the inside of the caliber the secure it to the spindle .
5.Once the bolts have been removed the caliber should pull straight away from the rotor and spindle assembly .
6.Remove your old brake pads , clean the assembly , properly lubricate the moving parts as necessary , especially the floating sleeve as the assembly is called a floating caliber which means half of the Caliper is bolted to the spindle (inner) but the other half floats (outer).
7.Use a large see clamp centered between the caliper piston and caliper housing to push the piston all the way back into the caliber cylinder by turing (1 turn at a time) the screw until the piston is flush with the caliber face .
8. Install your new brake pads .
9. use the reverse procedure to assemble everything back together. Good luck and be safe....

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab brake replacement


jack the truck up and take the passangers tire off. look behind the rotor you should see 2 bolts holding the caliber on to the rotor. loosen those and take them out. from there you should be able pull up on the caliber this will take the caliber and pads off together. take the pads out of the caliber and install the new ones .

BECAREFUL not to twist or bend the caliber to much or you will bend the brake line.....

once you have installed the new brake pads in the caliber. put the caliber back on the rotor. if they will not fit release the bleader valve to release the pressure. than you should be able to slid the caliber back onto the rotor. once you have done that close the bleader valve. reinstall the 2 bolts to hold the caliber in place. put your tie back one. Follow these steps for the other side.

now once that is done. you might want to blead the front breaks.
what you do is have someone help you. fill the brake resiviour with brake fliud. than start your truck.
Have someone in the cab to press the brake. What you want to do is turn the wheel so you can get to the bleader valve. once you can get to it open it up. have the person in the cab other truck press the brake until you see a steady flow of brake fluid coming out of the caliber. once you see that have the pseron press the brake once more and hold it to the floor.
close the bleader valve.

now do the same thing on the other side. But, make sure you check your resivour fluid first.
This is to make sure you don't have any air in the lines. after you are done with both side put it in gear and hit the brake make sure you stop......... If that works go about half the block down and hit the brake again to make sure you stop......
once you have done that and are comfortable with the way the truck stops than ou are good to go and now know how to change the brakes for future refrence..... be aware the back brakes are diffrent.........

let me know when you are ready for the back brakes.
do not blead the front ones if ou intend to do the back brakes afterwarwords......

if you are only doing the front brakes you must blead the the passanger side first......... if you do not have the bolts holding your caliber on than you will have a pin the you will take a hammer to and knock it out that will release them....
