Determine which type of emergency brakes your Dodge Ram will need. Emergency brakes typically function by activating the regular braking system on the driving wheels. The emergency brakes for the Dodge Ram have used rear disc brakes since 2001.
Release the parking brake pedal completely and raise your vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel with a socket wrench and disconnect the brake caliper from the caliper adapter. Slide the rotor from the axle shaft.
Install the new brake rotor onto the axle shaft and complete the installation by reversing the removal steps.
Tighten the wheel mounting nuts in the proper sequence with a torque wrench until the nuts are torqued to 47.5 foot/pounds Repeat the tightening sequence to torque the nuts to 95 foot/pounds.
Apply and release the park brake pedal to seat and adjust the parking brake cables. Road test the vehicle to ensure the vehicle's brake system is functioning.
Place tool C-3919 or the equivalent over the park brake shoes and use the star wheel adjuster to lower the park brake shoes until the lining just touches the jaws on the tool.
Both. If the running lights ( marker, tail, clearence, or parking) and brake lights are out since the rain, a tail light assembly is broken and filling with water enough to create a short to ground. If there's no broken lens, whitch normally only blows the bulb. Then, the problem lyes in the trailer light harness. the brown wire (tail) & green wire (left turn/brake or yellow wire (right turn/brake) must be bare exsposed that shorts to ground when wet. all the trailer wires could be smashed together damaged the plastic coating on them. no problem till water shorts to ground. The white wire is the ground wire make its not able to touch the other 3 wires or bare & wet. Tape wires seperate then replace tail/mkr fuse and brake fuse. That should do it.
Did you brake into the hydraulic system
at any point? If so them Moose had the answer. Did you crank the truck
in park and then push on the pedals so the brake assist booster can do
its job? Check the level of fluid at the brake resevoir. A low level
should be cause for a refill. Did you leave any brake bleeder valves
open? I assume it was the fron disc that were reaplced. If so hopefully
it hasn't blown a brake caliper . If so replacement or rebuild will be
the answer. You have definitely lost pressure so look for looks on the
inside of all wheels. Also try cranking your truck and then pump the
brakes to allow the brake assist to lend a hand and do its job.
a bad brake light switch can cause a vehicle to not shift from park, check your brake lights when its hanging in park, make sure all bulbs are lighting but 3rd brake light is most important, it affects your cruise and other systems besides the just telling ppl your stopping
After removing tire pull bolts holding brake calipers to rotor. Use a clamp or something in that nature to push old brake shoe into housing that way you wont have to bleed your brake system. Replace new shoes and reinstall caliper. Start vehicle and pump up brakes before traveling make sure to test brakes first to make sure no fluid was lost.
Check engine light: Turn the key on three times in succession and wait for the codes. What are the codes?
Brake ABS light: When did you last have the brakes serviced?
No AC: Do you park your truck/car in a garage? Check the AC housing for leaves and debis which will burn out the AC fan motor.
