Did you replace them yourself or did you take them to a "qualified brake specialist"? It sounds like your brake lines need to be bled properly. You may also have one or more calipers sticking to cause the vibration.

SOURCE: Just replaced the calipers and

Did you bleed the wheel furthest away from the master cylinder? THen next furthest, to closest last. Did u make sure the master cylinder never got low enough to draw in air? To bleed, Pumo brakes 3x, holding pedal down 1/2 way, while bleeder is opened, let air/fluid flow, shut bleeder as flow diminishes so no air gets in the line. Is the car running when u bleed brakes? It should be. If u are doing all of this u should feel your pedal coming back (getting firm). Let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Brake pedal all the way to the floor...Possible abs module?

Im going to assume that a mechanic has already checked for the most simple causes like making sure the brakes have been bled. If the abs module is faulty it will default to just a no abs state, but that wont cause the pedal to go all the way to the floor. I agree that replacing the caliper is probably gonna fix the problem, but I might try to bleed the brakes first and see if that solves it first...

SOURCE: Rr.ABS and the brake lights on

CHECK TO MAKE SURE WITH CAR RUNNING VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 VOLTS TO 14.5 VOLTS. USE A DIGITAL VOLT METER TO CHECK VOLTS AT BATTERY. WITH ENGINE OFF BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING BATTERY.THAT WILL MAKE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON AND A FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH WILL ALSO CAUSE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD.HAVE THE ABS BRAKES SCANNED.IN THIS CASE YOU ARE HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.BECAUSE WHEN BRAKE LIGHT COMES ON THATS WARNING BRAKE FAILURE BECAUSE THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS UNIT IS TOGETHER AS ONE.NOT SAFE TO DRIVE.COULD LOSE BRAKE CONTROL AT ANY TIME TOW IT IN.

Abs brake or brake trobles


Remove the corresponding line from the ABS pump and see if you have unrestricted flow from there down to the wheel well.
You could just blow in the hose again, but I don't recommend ingesting brake fluid, so use caution.
If you do have flow from the caliper to the ABS pump, then I'd have the ABS pump looked at by a mechanic. It's not something you'd want to dismantle on your own, there's a lot of small parts inside one.

01 explorer just did a pad swap and the front two calipers are dragging.


First, try bleeding the longest brakeline first, then next longest, and so on.

You can try troubleshooting several ways. Here are some possibilities: Front rubber brake hoses collapsed internally.(There is 1 way pressure to calipers, Gravity return) Master cylinder, sticking Calipers, ABS valving.

A diligent mechanic would attach a pressure gauge on the Brakelines to isolate the problem. If the pressure did not return to Zero after the Brake pedal was released, the individual component can be identified and replaced.

The cost to run the tests is compared to Labor to replace the bad part. With testing you only buy the part you need. You pay a third party to replace the single bad part versus guesstimates and doing it yourself.

Front end rubber brake hoses, cheapest, then Master cylinder or single Caliper. But if replacing both Calipers, they combine to cost more than a Master cylinder. ABS unit $$$

Labor versus parts. Some of the parts may be needed with guesstimates so difference really is buying something you don't need YET. You can look at it a preventative maintenence.

Brake specialty shops. Can do testing. Some offer lifetime Warranties on parts. Quick You have already installed pads. Repair place may not guaranty without replacing your new pads.

I hope my solution is helpful, please rate.

If you have one not grabbing the the rubber hose to the caliper is clogged up. they deteriorate from the inside. I sugest that you replace both hoses on the front.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

PRe bleed the master cylinder, using a kit that hooks up to the brake lines connection and the other end goes into the fluid reservoir. Bleed until no bubbles. then reinstall brake lines, one at a time, and then continue bleeding the system. DO NOT let the fluid run low in M/C or start all over again. Kit can be purchased at after market parts stores.

Brakes problem 1996 Toyota 4Runner 6 cyl Four


When you said, the bleed valve had to be loosed before the caliper would release, (caliper is already replaced), then we know there was a lot of preasure in the braking lines backed up some where,
and every time the brakes are applied to compress the the caliper to stop your truck,
the preasure would not release,
This
Is a clear indication that the Flexible Rubber Brake Hose attached to the caliper is backed up, clogged, kinked, etc..
That would be the next item in the brake system to check.
Its Bottom Up Disagnostics...
When the hose is off try to slide a strong piece of wire (metal clothes hanger) through the hose..

SOLUTION:
Replace Rubber Brake Line's, on both sides.
I reccomend Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line.

Here is a video that kinda shows corrosion in a rubber hose.
Also check out other videos on youtube.
