SOURCE: 2001 kia sportage soft brake pedel still doing

hi from the uk have had this problem on a customers car b4 who had replaced frot calipers and pads and pedal went to floor on inspection of caliper i found that the steel spring clip that fits into two holes in the front face of caliper and must also locate behind the caliper carrierbehind two lugs was fitted incorrectly it had been fitted behind the outer pad resulting in when brake pedal off ?the caliper being floating type as it is known because it is fixed by two screw pins/bolts and moves on these pins/bolts as pads wear ? what happens is the spring fitted wrongly ? actually pushes against the outer pad and as a result the caliper piston is pushed back into its cylinder slightly as it moves on the locating pins/bolts resulting in pedal going to floor on 1st application but if pumped ? some brake pedal force is felt but is lost again when pedal released ? so try this ? remove the steel clips from both front calipers that retain caliper to carriers then press brake/pump pedal ? if as suggested above works? your pedal should pump up and remain ok when you release and still be firm when re applied ? all above is what i found on ford ford but many other models use similar calipers and spring locating recheck how this spring should locate hope this helps ? good luck

After a couple visits to our local mechanics for brakes repair of a 2006 chevy siverado short bed reg cab. My rear brakes are the problem first the mechanics changed them out with premium pad then now...

Make sure the mechanic checked the park brake shoes inside the rear rotors, they quite often break away from the lining and get wedged in the rotor, sometimes causing a constant squeal noise. I've also seen the brake pad anti-rattle metal clips become loose and wander in the caliper bracket, they lightly rub against the rotor and cause a squealing noise similar to worn brake pads. They are also very bad for the backing plates rusting out prematurely and rubbing on the inside of the rotor. Other than that he can just try to champher the edges of both front and rear pads to help dissipate the brake dust, from collecting and causing squeak noises.

The brake light indicator on your intrument dash cluster on

If you have a brake light on you dash lighted up at all times it very well may be that your brake fluid is very low. Also if it is neglected and not checked that often you more than likely need new brake pads as well. the fluid will go down as the pads and shoes wear down. The fluid fills the space in the piston walls as the pads or shoes gets thinner

Brake light on dash evening when the emergency brake is not on. what could cause this? also does thie vehicle have brake shoe or pads for the emergency brake.

Typically if your brake light is on and there is nothing going on with the Ebrake, when the pads start to wear down, that can drop the fluid level and set off that light. You may need to just replace pads and possibly top off fluid. Hope this helps.

The brake light indicator light is on even after changing bulbs. What else will cause the warning light please?

Check your brake fluid, there is a level sensor in the brake fluid reservoir, if the fluid is low it's usually a sign that you should check your brake pads/shoes for wear, if the pads and shoes are ok, then top off the brake fluid and keep an eye on it for leaks (just make sure it doesn't get low again quickly).

Clio 2002 authentique 1.2 8 valve stop light & hand brake light stay on in the dash can anyone help!

hi from uk the stop/handbrake light has two warning functions it will illuminate when hand brake is applied or is left on whilst driving or not fully off position ?? the other function is it is warning you that your brake fluid in the reservoir is low/requires topping up ? if it is low ? this could be due to a fluid leak ?either from pipes or wheel cyl's/calipers ? OR ? just that as your b/pads and shoes wear lower then fluid from reservoir displaces from res to cyl's to compensate for wear so may i suggest you 1st check fluid level+top up if low? then check for leaks as above more important have your brake pads and rear shoes or pads if fitted checked for wear/safety i advise this considering age/milage? of car and if you have no record of being checked/replaced recently? if your brake pads are fitted with low pads wear indicators this will also give warning hope this helps? good luck !

Brake light is on and chime is on

No the light and chime does not indicate worn out brake pads or shoes.
However, you were correct to add fluid to the correct level.
Just to be clear, you are talking about the red brake indicator light on the dash and is not accompanied by the amber ABS brake light.
If the ABS light is not involved, there is a magnetic switch located in the brake master cylinder. When the fluid level is low, it triggers a switch in the master cylinder and causes the light to come on.
Some times a "gentle" tap on the master cylinder reservoir will loosen the stuck float and turn the light off. One way to verify the switch is causing the issue, you can disconnect the harness connector at the master cylinder and the light should go out.
Start there and let me know.
