Brake rotors getting red hot

Simple:(unless you are racing autocross), the brake pads are not releasing. This can be caused by several posible causes:

Clogged or?fices inside the Master Brake Cylinder.
Malfunctioning brake booster
Sticking brake calipers.
Damaged brake hoses.

A complete brake inspection is necessary, but anyway, overheated disc brake rotors that got red-hot will most probably got twisted or damaged and will be in need of replacement.

In my Stratus (a 2002 turbocharged R/T Sedan) I installed Premium ATE Brand rotors which have an elliptical slot. These Premium discs are needed at my altitude of more tan 7350 ft above sea level because engine vacuum is barely adequate to stop the car, and by using those rorots together with ceramic brake pads from Centris Parts (Posi-Quiet Brand) I achieved much better braking power.

Right rear brake light will no go out. I have removed the brake switch and it will still not go out. Please help

Probably a short in the lamp socket.
Sometimes the socket gets hot and melts the terminals together.
Or it could be a problem in the wiring including the steering column.

How to find out has caused my headlights and windshield wipers to come on together from a 2003 Dodge Neon automobile?

Sounds like a wiring harness problem. Sometimes your wires will get very hot and melt themselves together. Pop your hood on your car and look at the corner closest to the drivers corner under the hood. A patch of wires should come out. check them for any melted wires. Also look under the dash of your car for any melted wires.

96 dodge intrepid brake lamps do not turn off. already replaced brake lamp switch. lights stay on even after removing fuse. please help

Hmmm... sounds like a power( live line ) melted the insulation and fused together w/ the brake line, thus it powers up your brake light.

Check your rear brake wire harness leading to the front connection main harness., if the harness are covered w/ plastic insulation, cut the insulation and look for a wire that melted and fused together.
If you found the wire, seperate it and put some insulator tape to prevent power line shorting.
The power line usually colored RED.
Hope that helps!

Brake light wires going into switch at brake pedal are all melted together from switch back up the harness as far as I can trace them. I dissconected brake switch and put a jumper wire in place of switch,...

These wires are probably melted all the way to the fuse box. I don't envy the job you have ahead of you. Start splitting the harness and fixing wires. Done this to many times.

I need to replace the brake light switch in 2000 grand am... but i can't get the wire connectors out of the switch itself. i'm assuming i need a new switch since the brake lights won't go off...

look at where it plugs in there is usually a small platic clip that holds it together, bend the plastic clip it should come apart unless the terminals are welded together by the heat,may have caused the plastic to melt. get back to me and let me know how you make out. Thanks Ray

My chain on my husqvarna 435 x-torque power saw will not move

Well not exatly a 1999 Park Ave,but I will give it a try.We had several solo brand saws where the plastic parts got hot and melted causing the brake to come on.I could not find a parts breakdown of your saw but there has to be something that makes the brake come on.Part not in the rite place or something mis aligned.Try to get a parts brakdown and make sure that everything is where it is suposed to be.

2001 durango brake lights dont work ,already replaced brake switch

More than one possibility. Could be bad bulbs, damaged wires, bad turn signal switch (yes, the brake lights work through the turn signal switch) - has the vehicle been worked on recently?

I have a 1996 Honda Accord that ran hot, plug wire tips melted

it is really not good to run that hot, metal temper fails...

your description sounds like you will need to replace the wires, do it one at a time and that is the easiest way to not mix anything up..

After you get it going, measure how many quarts of oil you burn in how many miles, you may have killed the engine..
