Squeeky brakes and tire maitanence light on. I only have 32000 miles on my 2009 murano.


first check your discs and pads to see if pads are worn down or there are any score marks on the disks, also the metal antivibration shims in front of the brake pads for wear and tear.check tyres for wear wrong tyre preasures/unballanced, and steering problems can cause exesive wear on tyres.

I have a orange warning light on, circle with 3 dashes either side ?


This symbol is for worn brake pads. When the pads wear down the sensors make electrical contact with the disc rotor and the light comes on as the circuit is completed. Check out brake pads all round, inmost cases the pads at the front wear down first. Check symmetry of wear. The pads should wear symmetrically and evenly either side of the brake disc. If the pads are wearing on just one side of the disc check that the caliper body is not seized and that the brake guide pins are allowing freedom of movement. It is always a good idea to replace all the pads on one axle at the same time as this ensures even braking. Remember, after replacing pads to pump the brake pedal until stiff prior to moving off so that you can be sure that you can stop when you have to.

My parking brake is coming on and off. but my parking brake is not on. could this be a wiring problem, the fuses seem to be fine


THE LIGHT FOR THE PARKING BRAKE IS SOMETIMES ALSO USED FOR LOW BRAKE FLUID LEVEL OR WORN OUT BRAKE PADS. CHECK THE BRAKE FLUID LEVEL, A FLOAT ACTIVATES A SWITCH WHEN THE LEVEL IS LOW. IF THE LEVEL IS VERY LOW BUT THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A LEAK, CHECK THE CONDITION OF THE BRAKE PADS (FRONT & REAR). WHEN THE BRAKE PADS WEAR OVER TIME, BRAKE FLUID REMAINS IN THE CALIPERS TO COMPENSATE FOR MATERIAL WORN OFF. ALSO A SMALL METAL CONTACT EMBEDED IN THE BRAKE MATERIAL WIRED TO THE PARKING BRAKE LAMP, WILL MAKE CONTACT WITH THE DISC (GROUND) WHEN BRAKE PAD MATERIAL WEARS OFF AND LIGHTS THE LAMP.

How to shut off Brake wear sensor after pad change


If the brake pads were worn enough to activate the warning light the sensor or sensors must be replaced. There is no reset for this.

Brake pad warning light on golf gti 1.8t 1999 t reg


Brake wear indicator and low brake fluid warning indication are two different circuits.

They are not related.

==
Easy route to check brake pads is the measure the gab between the rotor and the metal portion of the brake pad.

If it's low then replace it.
==

The right way is to pull the tires and measure the thickness of the remaining brake pad.

===

Most shop give free brake inspection with oil change,

Check it out before the pad cuts into the rotor and it will DOUBLE the cost of your brake job.

My BRAKE light came on and I thought it was my parking brake


Rubbing noise usually indicates that your brake pads has worn down, and it's rubbing against brake rotor. It's more like grinding noise rather than rubbing, right? And for the brake light problem, as brake pads wear down, brake fluid level goes down too. Your car is equiped with a brake fluid level sensor. So, check your brake pad first before adding brake fluid.

Orange check light on my dash flashes while driving.


That orange light means that you must have your braking system check...most probably it's the pads wear indicators that are earthing warning you that the pads are worn.

I replaced the front pads on a VW JETTA 2.5 and the check pads light is on. How can I reset the check pads light?


As the brake pads wear, the brake pad wear sensor contained in the brake pad contacts the brake rotor. This causes the sensor to fail. When a pad wear sensor fails it opens the ground circuit of the pad wear warning light system causing the pad wear warning light to illuminate. Perform normal brake service to correct this condition and be sure to replace the brake pads with pads containing wear sensors. Once the brake pads and wear sensors are replaced, reset the brake pad warning system by turning the ignition switch to the "on" position. As long as continuity to ground exists through all the brake pad wear sensors the system should reset and the pad warning light in the dash will go out. If the pad warning light does not go out, a check of the pad warning circuit for an open circuit condition or poor ground must be performed.

Porshe boxster brake pad wear sensor


Hi

The pads may need adjusting...However the physics behind all this says that when the pads are wet...there is reduced Friction...and hence lower braking power...this may be perceived as a worn out pad when it is wet....Try apply the brakes to dry the pads when driving and the sign should go off...
