Check the float that is in your brake fluid resevoir, usually the brake light comes on when the fluid is low or the float is stuck down. Also your brake light might be tied in with your emergency brake hand or foot pedal whichever kind you have. Check this switch also. I hope this helps

What would cause there to be no brakes what so ever even after replacing all the broken brake lines and bleeding them all on a 2003 Hyundai elantra?


if this has anti-lock brakes it may be the HCU(hydraulic control unit) may have air in it. it may have to be activated to get all the air out.

sounds like the brake master cylinder seals are worn buy a master cylinder kit and get a mechanic to repair it it is a lot cheaper than replacing the whole unit

I have no front brakes on my 88 Toyota. I've bled


You may have to install brake cylinder kits on the front wheels. The kits come with all you need to replace them. Or it could also be the main cylinder that's leaking.

If you are sure there are no leaks, all the air has been bled out of the system, and the rear brakes are properly adjusted than it sounds like the master cylinder is your problem.

My brake light stays on and no brakes. replaced brakes, bled, replaced line, bled..works for a day or so and then brakelight comes on and no brakes again..what could be making this happen????


Check the master cylinder and if it's low again, check system for leaks...likely you have another you didn't see...Also check the rear of the master itself for seepage. If you can pump the brake and get the pressure back but it then sinks down while holding moderate pressure on it, the cylinder itself is bypassing.

We just replaced all the brake lines on our 2000 Concord. We bled the brakes, but still don't have great brakes. Is there steps we needed to take when we bred the brakes. The brake light is also...


When bleeding a break system have one person pump the breaks around 10 times and hold the pressure to the break peddle while the other person loosens the bleed screw......The peddle will then go to the floor..............Hold to the floor until the bleed screw is tightened again and repeat until no air is in the line............Repeat for all breaks and always check the master cylinder for low fluid level and top up.................Hope this helps you out.

Brakes on Chevrolet Optra soft and brakelights will not stay off - have had master cylinder replaced - problem getting worse. Have had lines bled.


Did you bleed air on ur BRAKE MASTER? Brake lights stays, must've the BRAKE switch on your pedal area is STUCK UP! Either its been damage when ur pumping ur brake during bleeding! Check that! Tahh!

I had to replace the brake lines in the rear of my car. The brake peddle still goes to the floor. do I need to bled the brakes some more?


Yes, try bleeding the brakes again, you may have to bleed the front brakes too. when the master cylinder goes dry from a broken line sometime air gets into the front lines also. otherwise the master cylinder could be bad when the pedal goes past it normal travel sometime it tears the seals inside and you be unable to build pressure in the master cylinder

Replace brakes. now they go to the floor. bled air


When you fixed the brakes, did you take the lid off the master cylinder. I just wonder if you spilled out your brake fluid. The only reason the pedal should go to the floor is if the brake fluid is gone or the master cylinder is not working. Check the fuse. Check the brake fluid level. The pedal only goes to the floor if there is no back pressure in the lines between the master cylinder the lines to the brake pistion on the calipers. Please give me a good ratin and keep me informed.
