Where do you feel the vibration? if you feel it where you sit it is coming from back which is usually rear brakes. If you feel the vibration in your feet and hands it is coming from the front which could be your ABS or front brakes.

SOURCE: front brakes stick on

either your calipers are sticking and need replacing. OR the hoses have failed internally. and need replacing.. very rare but possible the master cylinder is not allowing the fluid to return usually caused bu a booster failing and causing some down travel in the master cylinder. I'd start by raising the front end up. appling hard brake pressure. turn the tire.. then loosen the brake bleeder to check for pressure. if the bleeder sprays fluid and the brakes release forget the calipers. if they are still tight then replace the calipers. pump them up again if they released.. and break the line free at the master cylinder. if they don't release then replace the hoses..

when the abs is activated it will cause the brake pedal to jump in and out rapidly, and the ABS light will flash at the same time, is this what u are asking? is this normal? yes.

Brakes are spongey been to dealer and they bleed system etc and made no difference . Now they are saying that is normal

year make model?

since you're seeing a dealership, i'm guessing it's still under warranty? if it's a new car, don't take no for an answer and go to another dealership

if this is an older car, goto an independent shop instead & see what they find

1999 Yukon Denali stop shifting out of park.

Check the brake lights when this happens, if they are not on then you have found the problem it is the brake light circuit. Go under the dash if the brick lights don't work and check the brake light switch above the brake pedal, it should have 12 volts in and out with the brake pedal pushed down. See typical brake light switch location below. #4 in diagram is brk lite switch.

Kia picanto rear brake lights will not turn off

Check the brake light switch on the brake pedal. It may need adjusting to allow brake lights to go off. The plunger on the switch needs to open when pedal is depressed, and close when pedal is released and in its normal position.

Brakes work fine until I stop then the pedal goes to the floor. I thought it was the master cylinder but new one does the same. I replaced the check valve but it didn't correct the problem. It doesn't...

Pressure is bleeding...start with the simplest fix: Replace the cap gasket.
They're cheap, and notorious for bleeding pressure before failing altogether.

When you park in the driveway tonight, go in and get a pair of jeans on and a flashlight and take a good look under the car for shiny/wet spots around the wheels.

You could have a bad cup liner in one of the wheels, and if it's cracked (aged) it will bleed a bit under pressure...not enough to make a puddle, but it will drip down the inside of the wheel.
When you move again, the brake fluid is wind-sprayed around the wheel.

Assuming a new cap gasket and dry wheels; Your search for fluid leaks will have to expand, starting with the transition hoses (the rubber sections that are joined to the metal lines) just behind the brake calipers.

1999 daewoo matiz has lost brakes fluid has leaked out. what is the most likely cause?

You must look for 'wet' areas under the car to determine where a brake line may be leaking fluid. This can be caused by corrosion (metal brake lines rusting away), or damage, if the car ran over some debris in the road. The front brakes have flexible rubber lines attached at the wheels, so the car can turn, and the lines 'flex' or move. The rubber can deteriorate over time, causing cracks that can leak fluid. So, you must be a detective and examine the underside of the car to determine where the leak is. If you can't find any evidence, the last thing to check is the master brake cylinder, mounted on the firewall. If the seals go bad, you should notice leakage, usually only visible inside the car, under the dash where the brake pedal meets the master cylinder.

Brakes went completely out, not the brake pads

Do you mean the brake pedal goes down to the floor, and doesn't stop the van at all? If that is what happened, check the master brake cylinder reservoir under the hood, on the driver's side of the engine, at the 'firewall', which is the engine compartment metal wall that separates the inside of the van from the engine compartment. Is it low, or empty? If the fluid is down, there is a leak somewhere. This must be fixed before you can drive it safely. Check under the van for wet areas, especially at the back side of the wheels, and any puddles or wet spots on the ground under the van. Let me know what you find, I'll try to help further.

Brakes seem to lock up when roads are wet

First of all if your problem is only when it rains, get some tires for wet weather driving. Most cars have anti lock brakes now so you shouldnt have problems sliding to far. Your probably following to close to the car ahead of you. Give it the 2 sec rule. Put the car 2 sec in front of you. Another thing, Kia Rio's are light weight cars so if you slam on the brakes their is not a lot of weight on those tires to stop the car on a dime.
