Check that the callipers are free to self centre on the slides .
replace the master cylinder
check that the master cylinder reservoir is not over full
the problem is that the hot expanding fluid has no where to go to expand so it applies the brakes.

How do i replace front brake hoses on 94 ford ranger


Here is a good forum to find your answer.
http://www.fordrangerforum.com/exterior-tech/88010-brake-line-hose-replacement-94-xlt-2-dr.html

A few few things to remember: Purchase fresh new brake fluid and have a clean MityVac pump (both can be purchased through AutoZone, NAPA, Orielys, etc..) , plenty of clean rags, brake line clamps to stop the fluid from leaking when you initially pull the line off.
Be prepared to bleed ALL the brakes after changing the lines. When bleeding the brakes (after replacing the old lines) work from the caliper that is the longest distance from the brake master cylinder first to the shortest distance line.

Brakes Locking


I suspect corrosion in your master cylinder, or in one or more wheel calipers. That usually happens when the brake fluid gets old and absorbs moisture.

How long would it be since the brake fluid was flushed and replaced?

An amber abs light is on my 1996 accord accord 2 dr lx -- is this a safety hazard ?


Any time the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. The brake system should still function normally since the normal brakes do not rely on the ABS system to function. The only thing you will notice is that the brakes will lock up under a hard or emergency braking situation. My personal thought on this is at least find out why the light is on. If it is a relatively inexpensive repair that the added safety of the ABS system is well worth it. If it is a expensive repair that you'll havue to way the options. Under .the passenger side of the dash or behind the passenger side kick panel you will find two connectors not connected to anything. One will have three wires and one will have two. With the key off jump the two terminals of the two wire connector. Turn the key on and count the number of times the abs light flashes. It shoul be a series of long flashes and short flashes. The long flash is the first number of the two digit code and the short flashes will be the second. Post the codes and I will try to help you further.

Hi:) Make sure the brake shoes are on the wright side the short shoe goes on the front part of the backing plate and make sure the emergency brakes are loose enough. They are what adjust the brakes (pulling and releasing the brakes adjust the brake slack while backing up) so check the springs and cable for proper installation.

Try this if rear drum brakes.Go in reverse about 8 feet and hit the brakes.This will self adjust the rear brakes and possibly fix the issue.Your rear brakes may have become locked.
