Did you cut the rotors or replace them? If you cut them, they are probably too thin. If you replaced them, check their thickness with a micrometer. Rotors will overheat from being too thin.

Car shakes when braking at high speed

The front brake rotors need to be turned or replaced. If they've never been turned before, any dealer can easily fix this problem. On Honda Accords, they turn the rotors while they are sill torqued onto the hub.

Over time, the rotors heating up and cooling down leads to slight warps in the rotor. If it is warped rotors, the pedal will pulsate worse when you're going pretty fast and apply light pressure on the pedal.

A Honda dealer is the only place I would reccomend having this work done.

1990-1997 Honda Accord front brake replacement issue.

When doing brakes on the front of a 1990-1997 or so honda accord put on new rotors,even if they look good because if you have them turned and trued up anywhere from about a week to a month or two you will have a vibration in the brake pedal and or steering wheel when you hit the brakes,the rotors aren't thick enough to even take a little off or they warp again right away.

My Honda accord 2005 gives jerks while braking. Initially mechanics suspected sensor problem, got it replaced. But still the problem exists.

It sounds like your front rotors (brake disc) are severely warped. This is caused from a hot rotor coming into contact with cold water (puddles, etc.) Go to a mechanic and have them measure the runout (amount that the rotors are warped). You then have two choices: Re-surface the rotors or replace the rotors. I usually recommend replacement.

My front disc brakes vibrate very bad when braking, also extreme heat on rotor area. rotors do not look warped and caliper piston goes in and out (no signs of leakage) i think the problem is on drivers...

If you are feeling a pulsing in the bake peddle the rotors are to blame they maybe warped or may have some forin matter behind them try taking them off and cleaning the mounting surface. You may not be able to tell if they are warped as it does not take much run out to case a vibration. As far as the heat it is normal for rotors to get up to 1000 degrees during braking so unless you are seeing blue spots of them or they are turning red i would not worry about it. with the bake pad problem replace the pads and lubricate the slides (they sell specific lubricant for this at the parts store use it!) if that does not fix it the caliber will have to be replaced as the bore for the piston is worn.

Brake pedal vibration

Sounds like sticky caliper for one reason or another which has probably warped rotor(s). When that vibration occurs & you pull over to stop it, carefully touch rim to see if hot, or hotter than other side, which is a good indicator to tell you which one is sticking. Don't just change one though, do both.
that is provided it's just not a case of lubricating sliders etc, to get calipers moving freely.

Warping front brake rotors

Heat generated from braking is very hi. Any product that can reduce the heat is a good idea.
