Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.

2000 GMC Sierra 3500 4x4 standard cab 5.7 litre single rear wheels,Please tell me How do get the front rotors off? Any help would be much appreciated.

The brake calipers will need to come off which is the hardest part for most. Have a " C" Clamp with an 8 inch throat is needed so you can press the brake pads inward to release pressure from the rotor. Upon removing the caliper the saddle if so equipt has to be unbolted from the steering knuckle. Two bolts hold this saddle on. You may not have one depending on the design caliper this truck has. Once these parts are off the rotor will come off

How do i replace the front rotors of a 1993 Sonoma?

You have to remove the wheels and the brake calipers and then the rotors.You will need and 3/8 allen socket to remove the bolts that hold the caliper to the spindle.You also need to pry the brake pads back slightly to relieve the pressure from the pad to the rotor.This will make it easier to remove the caliper over the rust ridge of the rotor. Get a book to show you how.You can find them at the library or there are some good how to videos on line.Just google how to replace rotors.Afer you have replaced the rotors and reinstalled the calipers make sure and pump the brake pedal before driving the vehicle.Because the pedal will go to the floor the first few pumps.Pump it up til it feels hard before driving it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Remove front Brake Rotor

Try opening up the caliper with a flat screwdriver thru the opening in the middle of the housing.pry on the rotor and pull towards you to push the rotor back.That should loosen it up enough for you to get it of the rotor.If that dont work you probably got a stuck caliper and have to release the brake line and do the procedure again. GOOD LUCK

Hot front wheels

Replace brake hoses,they have an inner core that has ruptured and the outside rubber core is keeping pressure on the caliper with you foot off the brake. This will fix it! A common problem for this vehicle.
