Check for correct brake fluid level at master cylinder. If low, it is an indication of excessive front brake pad wear. If its still under warranty, have your dealer check the pads. Make sure the master cylinder is full of fluid in the meantime.

How do I remove the ignition switch from a winnebago lesharo


Instructions depend on whether it's on a dodge, ford or chevvy chassis. If the steering wheel is a tilt wheel. special tools will be necessary to get to the key cylinder. Go to an auto parts store and pick up a manual for whatever chassis you have and the same year. It will have instructions on getting the steering wheel off and getting the key cylinder out.

Brake light in dashboard coming on when driving


I am assuming that you are talking about the RED brake warning lamp and not a YELLOW Anti-lock Brake Warning lamp. If this is not correct, please let me know. There are several things that can cause this. The parking brake my not be released properly. The switch for the parking brake may be defective. Your brake fluid level could be low. (If it is, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you find out WHY!) Or you could have a brake system hydraulic failure.

In any case, it is NOT SAFE to drive the vehicle until the CAUSE has been determined. It may be safe to operate the vehicle temporarily if you find it is being caused by a defective parking brake switch, but any of the other possible causes make the vehicle DANGEROUS to drive.

Brake light stays on in dash 96 ford thunderbird


Hi, there are 3 things that can cause the light to stay on.
One is the parking brake switch, which may have shorted internally or to chassis ground. The switch is above the parking brake pedal. If the connector is still on the switch remove it. If the light goes out, replace the switch.

The second is the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir. Check fluid level. If good, check the sensor by taking the cable off. If that puts the light out, replace the sensor.

The third is the pressure differential warning switch. The switch turns on when there is a brake failure. You would probably know if this happened. If not, check all wheels for brake fluid leaks. If you have a leak and need help with repair procedures, please get back to me. If you have completed repairs, please read the procedures below from autozone.com to reset the warning switch.

Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.


From autozone.com:
A pressure differential warning valve is incorporated in the hydraulic system. The signal from this valve consists of a warning light on the dashboard activated by a differential pressure switch located below the master cylinder. The signal indicates a hydraulic pressure differential between the front and rear brakes of 80-150 psi, and should warn the driver that a hydraulic failure has occurred.
After repairing and bleeding any part of the hydraulic system the warning light may remain on due to the pressure differential valve remaining in the off-center position. To centralize the valve a pressure difference must be created in the opposite branch of the hydraulic system that was repaired or bled last.
Front wheel balancing of cars equipped with disc brakes may also cause a pressure differential in the front branch of the system.


VALVE CENTERING PROCEDURE

  1. Turn the ignition to either the ACC or ON position.
  2. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoirs. Fill to within 1 / 4 in. (6mm) of the top if necessary.
  3. Depress the brake pedal firmly. The valve will centralize itself causing the brake warning light to go out.
  4. Turn the ignition off.
  5. Prior to driving the vehicle, check the operation of the brakes and obtain a firm pedal.

There is a light on my dash it is a ! with a bunch of lines all around it. what is that light for?


According to the 2003 Ford TaurusOwners Manual:

"Brake system warning light: To confirm the brake system warning light is functional, it will
momentarily illuminate when the ignition is turned to the ON position when the engine is not running, or in a position between ON and START,
or by applying the parking brake when the ignition is turned to the ON position. If the brake system warning light does not illuminate at this
time, seek service immediately from your dealership. Illumination after releasing the parking brake indicates low brake fluid level and the brake
system should be inspected immediately by your servicing dealership."

In short, as your brake linings (pads and shoes) wear out, the brake fluid level in the reservoir goes down.

You're probably right at the point where the level gets low enough to turn on the warning only under specific circumstances (cornering? hard braking?).

You can top off the fluid for the short term, but you should have your brakes inspected fairly soon.

Switch off tire pressure warning light


From the manual: First find the reset button, located below the handbrake (emergency brake) lever. The button has an "exclamation mark in a tyre" symbol.

Make sure the pressures in all tyres are what you want them to be. 35psi all 'round is good for sporty driving.

Engine off. Turn ignition to the second position (ON) but don't start the engine.

Keep the re-set button pressed until the flat tyre indicator light on the dashboard COMES ON for several seconds.

Start the engine, and drive the car normally for several minutes. This will re-set the indicator to whatever pressures you have in the tyres. Hope this helps!!
