Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

The brake pedal on my model 917.289080, has moved way back, and will not disengage. I bumped the right front tire against a tree on accident, and it caused the brake lever/pedal to move.

Is there a schematic of the braking system, or a place to adjust it back into functional position?

Have you put the correct caliper on each side?
Are bleed screws facing upward?
If so you will probably need to have brakes pressure bled to push through air in ABS system.

How to adjust parking brake on 1993 chevy lumina ?




  • Adjustments




  1. Apply service brake pedal three times with a force of approximately 175 lbs.


  2. Fully apply and release parking brake three times. Full application may require two pedal strokes.


  3. Raise and support vehicle, then mark relationship between wheel and axle flange.


  4. Check parking brake pedal assembly for full release as follows:






    1. Turn ignition switch to On position.


    2. If ``Brake\'\' lamp is illuminated, operate manual brake release and pull downward on front parking brake cable to remove slack from pedal assembly.





  1. Remove rear wheel and tire assemblies, then install two lug nuts to retain each rotor assembly.


  2. If two parking brake levers on both calipers are not against lever stops on caliper housings, check for binding in rear cables and/or loosen cables at adjuster until both left and right levers are against their stops.


  3. Tighten parking brake cable at adjuster until either the left or right lever begins to move off the stop, then loosen adjustment until lever moves back barely touching stop.


  4. Operate parking brake several times to check adjustments. A firm pedal feel should be obtained by pumping pedal two full strokes and rear wheels should not rotate forward when parking brake is fully applied.


  5. Install wheel and tire assemblies, aligning marks made in step 3.

1994 chevy silverado front shakes when brake is applied


If you put new rotors you need new brakes as well the other thing to check is the inner and outer tie rods to do that get the front tires off the ground grab the front and back of the tire on the tread have someone look at the inner and outer tie rods as you move the tire back and forth if the tie rod does not move it is wore out you can also look at the sway bar pins and make sure that they are not broken

Im not saying this is a definite answer, but since I worked at a dealer 90% of these cars had an issue with the lower control arm. it is exspensive but by simply haveing a person watch your tire movment as you shift from fwd. to rev. with your foot on the brake you will see the tire actually move back and forth when you shift it.

Cruise control will not work


Try looking under dash where brake pedal comes up against stop. There should be a switch there that disengages the cruise control when you depress the pedal. You may have to adjust the switch in toward pedal. I have a truck that does the same thing once and a while, I have to bump the pedal to get it to pop up against the switch again, then reengage cruise.

It sounds like pads against the rotors. Does it get louder or stop when applying the brakes?May be a stone or maybe just rust or maybe you need brakes looked at.

Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.


Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.

Emergency break pedal stuck to floor, but break is disengaged


sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!
