SOURCE: 96 Lexus ES300 When you depress the brake pedal,

Hi there

Few things: When you say it 'slides' to a stop. Do you mean the pedal sinks to the floor with the same pressure as you first applied? If so, the master cylinder needs an overhaul or a replacement, as the seal around the plunger/piston has deteriorated.

If that is not the case, and you get a pulsating feel through the brake pedal, this is the ABS working. If it is not an emergency stop, then the rear brake pads are low, which causes the ABS to trigger too early (and by the sounds of it it is the left rear brake pad).

Seems odd how Toyota mechanics could not work that one out, they own Lexus. Alas, if it's not on their fool-proof computer screen then they pass the buck.

Good luck and please vote for me if this helps you.

I have a Lexus RX300 1999 model and have this recent problem. engine running normally but gear gets stuck in Parking mode and won't shift. had to depress the emergency button on the gear shift and


Hi there,

Some automatic vehicles rely on the brake switch (mounted on brake pedal) to be activated by depressing brake pedal. This signal then operates a relay and switch, to release the gear lever.

Firstly, I would check the brake pedal switch (are your brake lights working?).

If brake switch is confirmed OK, then inspect the relay (and related circuit components) of the gear release switch.

My Lexus ES 350 (2007) will not start or turn over, couple of weeks back, the starter sounded like it was skipping or missing


Push the brake and check the power at the starter, if you have power at the starter, then the problem is with the starter, if not then the problem is with the switch at the brake.

Vw golf 2000 the brake pedal is to soft when you apply it and seems like is not going to stop but it does, what is the problem?


Not sure if you have done all this.



BRAKE BOOSTER INSPECTION

Functional test:
1. With the engine stopped, Depress the brake pedal several times, then depress the pedal hard and hold that pressure for 15 seconds. If the pedal sinks, the master cylinder, brake line or a brake caliper is faulty
2. Start the engine with the pedal depressed. If the pedal sinks slightly, the vacuum booster is working. If the pedal height does not vary, the booster or the check valve is faulty

Leak Test:
1. Depress the brake pedal with the engine running then stop the engine. If the pedal height does not vary while depressed for 30 seconds, the vacuum booster is OK. If the pedal rises, the booster is faulty
2. With the engine stopped, depress the brake pedal several times using normal pressure. When the pedal is first depressed, it should be low. On consecutive applications, the pedal height should gradually rise. If the pedal position does not vary, check the booster check valve.

Check valve test:
1. Disconnect the brake booster vacuum hose at the booster.
2. Start the engine and let it idle. There should be a vacuum available. If no vacuum is available, the check valve is not working correctly. Replace the check valve and retest.

My brake lights are not working at all. The fuses are not blown


Hi!!
Check the Brake Pedal Position Switch on top of the brake pedal, the Lt Green w/Red stripe wire should always have 12v+, when brake pedal is depressed the Lt Green wire should have 12v+ also, if no power on Lt. Green w/Red wire, check fuse # 2 20A, if no power on Lt. Green wire when pedal depressed, REPLACE Switch, If there is power on both wires when pedal is depressed, check IVD STOP LAMP RELAY on the Aux. Relay Box 1 located at the Left Front of the Engine Compartment.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

I have a 1990 Lexus 250 ES. Brake lights inop.


check the brake pedal switch by connecting a test light to it and ground.

When the pedal depresses you might hear a click or see the button depress.

The test light should light or not light changing as you press and release the pedal.

Another way to do this is to change the brake pedal switch and see if it works.

I hope this helps.

Lexus es350 will not start and it gives key not detected message


Take your fob and hold it directly against the dash beside the start button for about ten seconds. Watch to see if the green light comes on. Then try the button. If it fails try your spare key same way. You likely have a low battery in the fob.
