Could be a malfunctioning height sensing proportion valve, usually located somewhere near the rear. You will see steel brake lines coming out of it and going to the wheels. Or could be air in the lines

Bleeding brake system how?


BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM

Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

My brake light and a light that looks like a car with //\ at the bottom are on. brake fluid is fine and all rear lights are working


Your brake light is on because your brake fluid is probably low in the brake master cylinder. As the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionally. A switch in the brake master cyluinder measures the fluid level.

The //\\ light indicates you have a burnt out tail or brake lamp. All of the rear lamps are checked by a sensor, including the one in the rear window.

In my sons 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee there was a dragging grinding sound coming from the passenger rear wheel when you stepped on the brakes. I pulled the drums off and the cylinder was leaking slightly and...


Hi,
Have your son pump the brake pedal until it gets hard. Then as you loosen the bleeder screw at that wheel tell him to let his foot ride the pedal and don't take his foot off until you tighten the bleeder screw.
You see, the pressiure he is building will force the airt out. Do this a couple of times until you get a good stream of brake fluid. He should be able to notice a good pedal again... I'm suspecting he has none or little pedal right now. Make sure you refill fluid in your master cylinder.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Check for leaks in the brake lines and calipers or brake cylinders. If leaking have it repaired right away its not safe. Change the brake fluid, take the old fluid out add new fluid or have it professionally done.
