SOURCE: Vibration when braking that I feel through the brake pedal.

Is it possible that you are hearing the abs pump running in the engine compartment? It sounds like an ABS problem with one of your wheel speed sensors.

SOURCE: Renault clio abs light comes on with vibration

How hard are you stepping on the brake pedal? What you are describing sounds like the ABS system activating. When you step on the pedal hard enough to engage the ABS the light will come on, in some cars it will blink. You will also feel the thumping/vibration in the pedal since the system works by repeatedly engaging and disengaging the brakes. If it is happening when you step lightly on the brakes then you may have a bad wheel speed sensor or possibly a bad or miss-adjusted brake switch.

SOURCE: on occasion front brakes staying engaged while

Well, guess I don't need to tell you this is dangerous and that your front Rotors are probably trashed.

This sounds like either a bad Master cylinder or a leaking Brake booster. There can also be a bad check valve on the Vacuum line plugging into the Brake booster. There is a rather large line with a plastic fitting, sometimes a 90 degree fitting on the end and the check valve is in the plastic

You can test the Brake booster with the engine running and using an approved Brake cleaner safe for rubber and plastics. Cover the outside bottom of the hood so spray does not get on your paint. Then spray around the Booster. If the engine RPM changes, you have a leak. Save the actuating rod, and replace the Booster. Spray the check valve, if RPM changes replace it.

Now for the Master cylinder, pressure gauges can be attached to the front fluid discharge to measure if the internal pistons are sticking. But you may spend more Labor in testing, than the part is worth.

My reasons for choosing these parts as defects are that your "Brake or ABS" warning lights are not on so the problem would be before those monitoring devices. The Vacuum system is not monitored and you hear hissing. The Master cylinder is not monitored before the ABS unit.

I hope you find my solution helpful.

Chevy uplander traction control seems to be working all the time

Can you feel the vibration through the steering wheel if so have your front discs machined & the front pads replaced. Or are you feeling the vibration through the pedal? if so it may be the rear but start with the front.

Steering wheel vibrates when engaging the brakes replace brake pads an new set of tires

You probably have some warped brake rotors. Meaning there is a high spot on the rotor, which will cause a pulsation in the brake pedal.

Steering wheel and gas pedal vibrate at abot 35 mph. vibration gets worse on freeway when braking

I don't want to imply you don't have your brakes serviced or your shop is less than competent--But,unless a wheel weight fell off,or you have a really bad CV Joint causing this vibration,along with bad motor mounts,yes you can have a combination of worn items. Then I will bet on the fact that at least 50% of your problem,is worn brake rotors,rusted pad slides,rusted caliper mounting bracket and no one ever lubed a thing during any brake work. So pads grabbing rotors and you got brake chatter. Please don't be offended,but in my world that could have been prevented with semi-annual brake service.

Steering whell shimmies when brakes are applied

A common problem with brakes are the rotors warping,which causes a vibration when applying the brake pedal.The brake pads,clamp down on the brake rotor,which slows the vehicle,and in the process,both items are subjected to very high temperatures.This is what causes the rotors to warp,which in turn creates the vibration you feel.Best solution is to replace the rotors and pads,with new.The calipers,which hold the brake pads,should be checked by the technician to make sure the piston is working properly,and not leaking.The rubber hoses should also be checked,no cracks or leaks,etc.Good luck.
