SOURCE: brakes

Did you have this problem before you replaced the M/C? Inspect your brake system for leaks, especially the rubber hoses. Make sure all fittings are tight. Sometimes the caliper's seal around the piston will allow air to **** in, but won't leak fluid. Many cars from the 80's onward had pistons made out of plastic which causes a sticking and leaking problem. Many times rebuilt, loaded with pads, calipers cost just a little more than what a reseal kit costs. They have to be cutting corners somewhere.

If your vehicle has ABS, sometimes you have to hook a scanner up to bleed the brakes correctly. If you don't have ABS, you probably have a proportioning valve and these can cause trouble, especially on a high mileage vehicle.

Are you check for one bad Brake light fuse?

Other, the brake light is a low fluid warning a you should identify where the fluid has gone first; if the pedal is soft there will be air in the system. According with your comments (recently front brakes replacement), check all brakes, re-bleed and check for the leak carefully, start here.

(see Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4)

  1. Clean all dirt from around the master cylinder fill cap, remove the cap and fill the master cylinder with brake fluid until the level is within 1 / 4 in. (6mm) of the top of the edge of the reservoir.
  2. Clean off the bleeder screws at the wheel cylinders and calipers.

Fig. 1: If using a pressure bleeding system, extend the valve stem on the brake valve block

  1. Attach the length of rubber hose over the nozzle of the bleeder screw at the wheel to be done first. Place the other end of the hose in a glass jar, submerged in brake fluid.
  2. Open the bleed screw valve 1 / 2 - 3 / 4 turn.
  3. Have an assistant slowly depress the brake pedal. Close the bleeder screw valve and tell your assistant to allow the brake pedal to return slowly. Continue this pumping action to force any air out of the system. When bubbles cease to appear at the end of the bleeder hose, close the bleed valve and remove the hose.
  4. Check the master cylinder fluid level and add fluid accordingly. Do this after bleeding each wheel.

Fig. 2: For standard bleeding, use a hose attached to the bleeder valve with the other end submerged in a container of clean brake fluid

  1. Repeat the bleeding operation at the remaining 3 wheels, ending with the one closest to the master cylinder. Fill the master cylinder reservoir.

  1. Fill the master cylinder reservoirs.
  2. Place absorbent rags under the fluid lines at the master cylinder.

Fig. 3: Position a hanging plastic container and a hose connected to the bleeder valve (disc brake shown)

  1. Have an assistant depress and hold the brake pedal.
  2. With the pedal held down, slowly crack open the hydraulic line fitting, allowing the air to escape. Close the fitting and have the pedal released.

Fig. 4: While an assistant depresses the brake pedal, loosen the bleeder valve (drum brake shown)

  1. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each fitting until all the air is released.

Finally, test the brake level sensor and the Emergency Park Brake switch, generally in back-side brake peddal.

1998 dodge durango how to adjust brake metering block to give more fluid to back brakes?

Odds are that your brake proportioning valve is fine, you should try bleeding the brakes first starting with the farthest wheel away from the brake booster ( passenger rear ) and work your way to the nearest ( driver front). Make sure you have plenty of fluid and that your brakes are in good shape before hand.

Break bleeding

try bleeding the brakes as a system. start by making sure the master cylinder is full. then have a Friend step on the brakes and release 3-5 times. the last one they should hold as you break lose the bleeder on the passenger side rear, then do the driver side rear ,(check fluid) next passenger front and then the driver side front do each wheel until you don't see any or hear any air, thats the way i have always bleed brake systems. hope this helps

2000 Silvrado z71 4wd Brake Pad Replacement

crawl underneath the front and look at the caliper if it has a duel piston caliper you will see 2 circles about 3 inches across and if it is a single piston caliper it will only have one of these circles in the middle this iswhere the pistons are. yes those pads are suitable. As for bleeding the brakes you need to start at the passengers side rear wheel and bleed it first then go to the drivers side rear wheel then go to the passengers side front wheel and then finally the drivers side front wheel. If you are only replacing the brake pads and shoes then you don't need to bleed the brakes. If you are bleeding the brakes then you will want to be sure to top up the brake fluid as you are doing thebleeding process as if you don't you will end up having to start all over again. as for special tools you may need a 3/8 hex bit and a 8 inch " C " clamp to compress the calipers after you remove the brake pads. If you are replacing the rotors you may require a special socket fo dis-assebleing and re-assembly of the front hubs.
