Problem with braking.-right foot depresses both brake pedal and accelerater


Try adjusting the brakes first. There is an adjustment nut in the pedal that sets the up height for the pedal. Might want to look into raising the pedal that way. You may not have enough brake fluid in the master cylinder. Check and adjust fluid level if necessary.

Brake pedal


Did you ensure that the master brake cylinder was topped up properly whilst you bled the back brake shoes?

If you did so and the brakes are free of air in the lines, then you still have to adjust the brake shoes to their operating position. Secure vehicle from movement. Jack back wheels of the ground, support with jack stands. Remove the rubber grommets that covers brake adjustment wheels. Turn star wheel adjuster with special adjustment tool or a wide blade screw driver. Lock the wheels with the adjustments, push in brake pedal until you have pressure, back off adjustments until wheel runs freely. you should have plenty of pedal now. Make sure master is at the right level at all times.

If you don't have pedal now then I would suggest you still have air in the brake lines.. If you pump the brakes until you have pressure and the pedal feels spongy , then you still have air in the line somewhere. Bleed until air is removed.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

How do you adjust the brake peddle for more peddle


Is the problem your brake pedal is to low There is an adjustment for the brake light switch at the top of the pedal that could affect pedal hight slightly But if down a 1/2 inch or so i would suspect some kind of a problem with the brake system it self how well do the brakes stop the vehicleand have you noticed more of a drop in the pedal over time?

  2. Remove the steering wheel using a steering wheel puller, Tool T67L-3600-A or equivalent.
  3. Remove the lower dash panel section to the left of the steering column.
  4. Remove the shrouds from the steering column.
  5. Disconnect the brake lamp switch and the master cylinder pushrod from the brake pedal.
  6. Rotate the clutch quadrant forward and unhook the clutch cable from the quadrant. Allow the quadrant to slowly swing rearward.
  7. Remove the bolt holding the brake pedal support bracket lateral brace to the left side of the vehicle.
  8. Disconnect all electrical connectors from the steering column.
  9. Remove the 4 nuts that hold the steering column to the brake pedal support bracket and lower the steering column to the floor.
  10. Remove the 4 booster nuts that hold the brake pedal support bracket to the dash panel.
  11. Remove the bolt that holds the brake pedal support bracket to the underside of the instrument panel, and remove the brake pedal support bracket assembly from the vehicle.
  12. Remove the clutch pedal shaft nut and the clutch pedal, as outlined above.
  13. Slide the self-adjusting mechanism out of the brake pedal support bracket.
  14. Examine the self-adjusting mechanism shaft bushings on either side of the brake pedal support bracket, and replace if worn.

To install:
  1. Lubricate the self-adjusting mechanism shaft with motor oil and install the mechanism into the brake pedal support bracket.
  2. Position the quadrant towards the top of the vehicle. Align the flats on the shaft with the flats in the clutch pedal assembly, and install the retaining nuts. Tighten to 32-50 ft. lbs. (43-67 Nm).
  3. Position the brake pedal support bracket assembly beneath the instrument panel, aligning the four holes with the studs in the dash panel. Install the four nuts loosely.
  4. Install the bolt through the support bracket and into the instrument panel. Tighten to 13-25 ft. lbs. (18-34 Nm).
  5. Tighten the four booster nuts that hold the brake pedal support bracket to the dash panel to 13-25 ft. lbs. (18-34 Nm).
  6. Connect the brake lamp switch and the master cylinder pushrod to the brake pedal.
  7. Attach the clutch cable to the quadrant.
  8. Position the steering column onto the four studs in the support bracket and start the four nuts.

How to adjust parking brake. do you need to take anything apart?


You cannot adjust the cables on a minivan manually. the tension is automaitcally adjusted by the self adjuster on the pedal release.

The park brake cables on this vehicle have an automatic self adjuster built into the park brake pedal mechanism. When the foot operated park brake pedal is in its released (upward most) position, a clock spring automatically adjusts the park brake cables. The park brake cables are adjusted (tensioned) just enough to remove all the slack from the cables. The automatic adjuster system will not over adjust the cables causing rear brake drag.

Due to the automatic adjust feature of the park brake pedal, adjustment of the parking brake cables on these vehicles relies on proper drum brake.

When the park brake pedal is applied the self adjuster is by-passed and the pedal operates normally to engage the park brakes.

When a service procedure needs to be performed on the park brake pedal or the park brake cables, the automatic self adjuster can be manually locked out by the service technician.

Brake and gas pedals


The vehicle has a optional adjustable brake to increase driver comfort. The brake pedal position is changed in phase with the accelerator pedal. The system is adjusted by pressing the dash-mounted switch that powers the driver motor mounted on the accelerator pedal assembly. The two-way motor operates backward (away from the driver) or forward (toward the driver) to adjust the accelerator pedal directly and the brake pedal through the drive cable attached to the brake pedal assembly.
