The problem is in your method of bleeding. It is a 2 person operation. Remove the bleed screw on the slave cylinder and place your finger over the hole . Get your helper to push down on the pedal at the same time you take your finger off the hole . replace your finger and have them pump several times and hold down . release your finger to let out the air . Repeat the process until you have trouble holding your finger over the hole. Replace the bleed screw and have them pump the pedal and hold down- release the bleed screw. tension the screw and repeat the process until you get a full stream of oil. Keep an eye on the reservoir level and keep it full.. Only use oil from a new container that you have just broken the seal on as old oil will contaminate the system. before you start.
Hi Eveerei, If you're asking about the tachometer and not the speedo meter, that meter records the engine RPM speed and not the vehicle ground speed The tachometer at idle (when you stop at a traffic light, stop street or any other stop) should record an engine speed of about seven hundred to seven fifty revolutions per minute, at idle. It will increase in relationship to how hard you push your foot on the accelerator pedal. Hope this info helps you. Happy new year and regards John
Resetting the oil life monitoring system
1. Turn the ignition key to the on position. Do not start the engine.
For vehicles with push-button start, press and hold the START/STOP
button for two seconds without pressing the brake pedal. Do not attempt
to start the engine.
2. Press both the accelerator and brake pedals at the same time.
3. Keep both pedals fully pressed.
4. After three seconds, the Service: Oil reset in prog. message will be
5. After 25 seconds, the Service: Oil reset complete message will be
6. Release both the accelerator and brake pedals.
7. The Service: Oil reset complete message will no longer be
8. Rotate the key to the off position.
For vehicles with push-button start, press the START/STOP button to
turn the vehicle off completely.
If you're not losing any brake fluid then it sounds to me as though the master cylinder is bleeding fluid between to two chambers allowing fluid to pass from one to the other which would decrease the pressure on one of the lines leading to the proportioning valve, thus setting off the 'brake' light.
IF it does NOT have the hydroboost system the following steps MAY help diagnose if it's a booster problem.
(Copied and pasted from a youtube comment)
Test 1) 1. Start the car 2. Let it idle for 2 minutes 3. After 2 minutes turn off the car 4. Pump the brake pedal 3 times 5. The pedal should rise every time if it does then the Booster and Check valve are OK 6. If the pedal doesn't then the is an issue with the either one, run tests 1 and 2.
Test 2) 1. Start the car 2. Let it idle for 2 Minutes 3. After 2 minutes push down the brake pedal and HOLD it 4. While holding the pedal down turn off the car 5. The pedal should NOT rise for at least 30 seconds 6. If it doesn't rise then the Check Valve is good 7. If the pedal rises before 30 seconds then the Check Valve is faulty.
Test 3) 1. Shut off the Engine 2. Pump the brake pedal 4 times 3. On the 4th one keep it pushed down and start the car while holding the pedal down 4. The pedal should sink down. 5. If it sinks, the booster is Fine.
Myself, I'm leaning towards the master cylinder having an internal 'leak' or bypass problem.
Okay, turn the key on with engine off, (you should see dash lights, its the position before the start) within 5 seconds push the gas pedal to floor three times, make sure to let pedal come all the way up and push it all the way down three times, the oil light should then flash now turn key off for 5 sec, start truck and light should go out, if light stays lit repeat steps. hope this helps.
You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds. Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.
Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.
