Has your brake pedal seem to be stiffer than usual? the sound you hear is from the brake booster if it has a leak it will cause a noise but you would have a stiffer pedal because the booster is loosing vacuum.

2000 jeep grand ckee push on brake pedal and hissing noise gets loud release pedal and it gets quiter pedal does not get hard to push down but if held will slowly sink to floor


could be one of several problems. first check your brake fluid level, if its low then add some and before you replace the cover try and reset the rubber end back up into itself. if one of the chambers is empty then you'll need to fill it back up and bleed the brakes. if after you refill the resevior and it keeps happening you will need to check the lines for a leak. if the brake fluid is good then you might have a problem with the vacuum assist and you'll want to take it to a mechanic.

The brake lights on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't shut off.


The brake light switch is defective or out of adjustment. More than likely located on the brake pedal arm near the top.

2000 Jeep Grand CHerokee has a hissing noise down near the brake pedal. Brakes seem to work but pedal seems to be "softer". Any suggestions? Thanks


There are some solutions for this kind of problems:
1. change your brake fluid (BF). This need to done regularly every three yrs. , at hard condition's every two yrs.
2. check the caliper. It's possible that one of the two pistions inside the caliper don't work properly (mud or rust inside)
3. check if the brake bads can slip free over the anchor, if there are some rust on it, remove them and check the surface, if damaged, replace the part.
4. check the caliper slide pins. If the caliper can not slide, it will stay in contact with the brake disk, this will heat up the bad and disk and make a noise.
5. check your brake booster (vacuum test required). If you switch of the engine, listen if your hear some noises (air leak!).
If all that wont work, come back again.

Changed front brake pads. brake pedal goes to floor. no brakes


Something doesn't sound right, you shouldn't have to remove the brake line to install pads. Did you have to do this on both sides? Do the new pads and the old pads look the same? Did you get the caliper on crooked? Just recheck your work first before replacing more parts. When you install the caliper, You have to hook the pad on one side first before you slide it over the rotor.

Brake Booster


Is it in the compartment and stops when you hit the brakes if so then it is your brake booster.
