Why does my break pedal leak air?

You have a bad seal in your break booster unit,, just behind your master break cylinder is a big roung doughnut looking thing, this unit works off vacume from the engine, it helps you push down on the break peddle so its not so tuff to stop! well on that booster unit there is a seal that keeps the unit from loosing vacume past the rod leading into your break peddle, sounds like this seal is leaking vacume .. you can replace this unit your self if you want to tackle it, its going to be some work to replace and you should probley have the manual on this truck to do the work.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

My tailights wont shut off. i replaced tailights, checked fuses, checked fusable links and they still wont shut off. i was told to check the brake switch but i dont know what im looking for other than its...

You can push in on the switch with the door open to get a feel for how it works. Push it in and your dome light turns off. The same thing happens with your brake light switch. When you push on your brake peddle it is the same as your truck door being opened. When the brake peddle, is in its home position as in no pressure on the peddle pad, the arm of the brake peddle pushes the button in which, breaks the circuit to the brake lights.

The switch could be bad. It is easy to spot the switch look at the arm of the brake peddle and see if you can see a bracket that holds the switch against the brake peddle arm. Use a flashlight.

You might be able to tell if the switch is bad by only removing one of the wires and see if your brake light goes out. If your brake lights go out with one wire removed, the switch most likely is bad.

I have also seen where a driver caught there shoe string or shoe on or under side of the peddle and when they pull there foot up they bend the bracket that holds the brake light switch. By bending the bracket they move the switch away from the peddle arm and the switch no longer gets pushed in enough to break the circuit.

A bent bracket can be an easy fix just bend the bracket back to its original position. Please be very careful the bracket can be sharp. In addition, the bracket can crack, to help prevent this let your truck heat up inside if the A/C has been on etc.

You can take all of the wires off the switch and remove it. Take the switch to your local auto parts store they should have one and will be glad to test your existing one.

If there are more then two wires draw your self a diagram, tag the wires with masking tape, and number them. Please be aware that you could blow a fuse if you touch the wire ends to any metal parts of your truck.

If you do not already have fuses in your glove box, you should pick up some while you are at the auto parts store. Please put the fuses in your glove box. I run into many people who say yes I have fuses, at home in there garage! I do not know about everyone else but my truck never breaks down in my garage. I think it is scared of all the tools around it. LOL.

I hope this helps.

Take care and stay safe

Thank you

Fuse keeps blowing out 94 Corolla

That leaves only a couple things that may be the problem.

1 the break switch could have a short in it, or going bad. it is located on the break pedal its self, get on the floor and push it in and you can hear it click, some times they go bad.

2 the other is bad ground or a positiave ground, meaning a wire is loose on the ground side, or there is a bare wire on teh positiave side touching the metal.

3 if the connections on the light sockets thereselves, it will cause the same thing.

bottol line is your dealling with a short of some kind, and some times they can be a bear to find,

Good luck and i hope this helps a bit
