SOURCE: ABS light on after replacing the front and rear brake pads .

On Some cars with abs installed. You have to bleed the calipers in the rear while you compress the piston. If you dont use the Bleeder screw you will force fluid back into the abs valve and ruin it. This will cost you a 1200. on some vehicles. So DONT just compress the piston on rear pads of Newer cars, SUV's trucks. The ABS will be effected badly.

Have a 99 Toyota camry n brake light is on after changing right front brake caliper


Master cylinder fluid piston has entered into a brake safe mode.
when the high pressure brake system is opened in any way, the brake master cylinder piston reaches to the far end of the master cylinder which trips the brake system warning light.

This brake light condition is due to sudden loss of brake fluid pressure on the right front brake caliper assembly during the replacement.

Left rear brake caliper bleed valve will ned to be "opened" until master cylinder piston travels into the opposite direction which "resets" the brake system warning light.

Dot 4 brake fluid recommened for most, but not all vehicles.
Reference vehicle to owners manual for replacement fluid is replaced under master cylinder brake system cap.

Check the caliper sliders, they may be seized causing limited brake pad contact. Also check the calipers for siezed pistons.
After bleeding the system, sometimes the proportioning valve will have to be reset manually. You can do this by having an assistant press the brake pedal and open a bleeder screw slightly on one side [ front or rear ] of the system, it may reset. If not, try doing the other side of the system.
If the brake pedal seems to be pushing back against you then either the Brake Booster isn't getting proper vacumn, or is faulty.
If the vehicle has drum rear brakes, make sure they are adjusted properly. If they are set too loose the pedal will feel spongy and low.
Hope this helps.

Dear Brake Line....
I read your paragraph and if this brake light was never on previously to the brake line repair....then all it sounds like to me is that you have air enclosed in the braking system still. I would strongly advise that you bleed the braking system again....also bleed the master cylinder if you replaced a line of the master cylinder also...to make this easier on you your local auto parts store makes what they call one man bleeders that you can buy then install to bleed the system then remove and replace with regular brake bleeders.....just do a quick double check also to make sure that the line you replaced doesn't have any brake fluid leaking out also...any questions get back to me.....HOPE I COULD HELP!!!!

Brake line diagram


Brake Lines and Hoses
Double-walled steel line is used in the hydraulic lines between the brake master cylinder and the front tube connector, and between the brake master cylinder and the flexible brake hose at the rear wheels.
Double-flared brake lines provide good leak-proof connections.
When replacing hydraulic brake lines, hoses, or connectors, tighten all connections securely. After replacement, bleed the brake system; refer to Section 206-00 .
The wet appearance of the outer cover of the rubber brake hose is referred to as "sweating." This is a normal condition for neoprene rayon braid hose and is not a sign of leakage or cause for replacement of the hose.

Brake lamp light


How are the brakes acting? This means that you have a brake system malfunction, or that your parking brake is on. 1st thing to check is fluid level. If it's low the light will go on. If it is low, check for leaks. Is your brake pedal low, 'squishy' going to the floor, brakes fading? All of these are system problems. Release the parking brake (even if you don't think it's on, push down on brake release). If it's not adjusted properly, the light can come on. Although it could be a minor problem, don't screw around, find out what's wrong because you may completely lose your brakes next time out. good luck countrycurt0
