Question about 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

On my 2003 chevy tahoe, the braking pedal vibrates when braking and I can't think of any possible solutions... When going on a city limit and we start braking it would not vibrate but like until the we are going around 5 miles an hour right before stoping. On a highway or any normal speeds it would not vibrate. Sometimes if the braking light comes on, the problem goes away, but if you turn the vehicle on again it would have the problem again.

The brakes vibrating could mean a rough spot on the disc, a warped disc or faulty ABS.

How can l fix a brake pedal that is to high up on a 2003 grand cherokee laredo

There is a rubber limit stop above pedal. If missing pedal will be a bit high. Otherwise, brake light switch limits upward travel. No other adjustment is possible without cutting and rewelding pedal which could limit travel, change leverage, and void warranties. Adjust seat instead.

2002 chevy tahoe no front brakes only rear brakes

IT appears that only half of the master cylinder has bled properly. Try loosing the pipe nuts at the m/cyl and gently pump the pedal until you get fluid out of both lines. Then re-bleed the system starting at the longest line first ending at the shortest. Some master cylinders have a plunger fitted in the middle of the cylinder and this is there to still have brakes if a line fails. It may be necessary to remove it an plug the hole temporarily while you bleed the system as to stops one piston in the cylinder from moving and allowing proper bleeding

How to install the brake light switch for 2003 chevy tahoe

Look under the dash on the drivers side. The switch will directly above the brake pedal. You should see the switch with an electrical connection you can unplug and the nut to take off to remove the switch. Before you put the new switch in notice where the adjustment is on the old switch and put the new one in about the same position. Once installed you will most likely have to make a small adjustment on the adjustment nut and thus the hold down nut. A small adjustment makes a lot of difference. Adjust the new switch so that when the brake pedal is depressed about 1/4 inch the brake light are activated.

Re-check again, that's what rotors do when warped, but only when the pedal is applied. If you let off and the pulsation goes away, it's the rotors.

Emergency brake light stays on on my 03 tahoe

I have an '03 Chevy Tahoe and I had a similar problem. I discovered that there is a bare copper striking plate or tab that the medal emergency parking brake pedal touches when the emergency brake is set. It turns on the idiot brake light in the dash. It had broken off and the light stayed on all the time with the say issue of chiming whenever the vehicle is in motion. You or the dealership must replace that striker plate to fix the problem.

2001 tahoe emergency brake will not hold

Ah homie it is your parking brakes, most important thing when doing front or rear brakes is that u need to resurface rotors and drums as well, if u did this already then just simply bleed your rear brakes- from the furthest drum first and so on down the line.
Chevy brakes aren't that well designed like other vehicles but they do function well & correct if done right and use organic or softer material if possible to prevent warpping to the front rotors then you'll have very shakey steering wheel when trying to brake.
