I hope that you are aware that you have to bleed the brakes when you have worked on them. You problem is probably being caused by the power brakes on your car not having any fluid to push through the lines, which now have air in them. If you don't know how to bleed your brakes, I suggest that you get a cheap Haynes manual for your car and follow the procedure, which can seem quite involved.
Hope this helps.

hi sounds like good advice with out your rear brakes working properly all the load will be transfered to the front brakes causing uneven braking and in wet or slippery conditions front wheels will start locking up causing lose of control

WHAT YEAR AND MODEL OF BUICK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT. BECAUSE IF IT IS A REAR WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE, I WOULD SUGGEST YOU CHECK THE WHEEL BRAKE CYLINDER, YOU WILL NEED TO PULL THE WHEEL AND DRUM OFF. IF REAR BRAKES ARE DISCS, THEN VISUALLY CHECK THE REAR BRAKE CALIPER AND HOSE. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO REPAIR BRAKES... BUT DON'T FORGET THE NUMBER ONE RULE OF ALL CARS. THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS ON YOUR VEHICLE ARE THE BRAKES, GOOD ONES MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE.... BAD ONES..........WELL....YOU GET THE PICTURE.

I have a 1999 chevy malibu that has a "service vehical soon" light that came on after i replaced the rear break light bulb.


This is a pure coincidence. The service Vehicle soon light is for your oil change. Check your mileage since the last oil change. If it has been less than 3000 miles, you should reset the light by turning the ignition key to the on position and immediately press the gas pedal all the way to the floor three times within 8 seconds. This will reset the light, and you will need to reset it again every time you change the oil (even if it hasent come on yet).

Clicking sound in right rear interior panel with ignition turned on


It is probably the motor/actuator that controls the damper for air flow to the overhead or floor outlets (look on overhead console for button). Turn off the rear A/C and see if it stops. Switch between floor and overhead mode and see what it does. I just disconnected mine and now it only blows overhead. To disconnect just remove the tray on top of the passenger side rear panel over the rear A/C. There is a connector near the front that goes to the damper.

How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 2003 kia spectra? It feels like you have to push the break pedals down to the floor in order for the car to stop. They seem to need tightening, but there doesn't seem...


The rear brakes on the Spectra will always engage less than the front brakes. If you have to push hard on the brake pedal then you probably have air in the brake lines from the last brake pad replacement. The brakes need to be bled with this method: Use 1/8 inch 2 foot long hose from parts store and attach from bleeder valve ball on the brake caliper to a bottle partially filled with brake fluid. End of hose should be submerged in bottle. With second person holding brake pedal to floor, slowly turn bleeder valve counter clockwise (loosen tiny bit) with wrench and watch for dirty brake fluid to create bubbles in the bottle. When bubbles start, quickly tighten bleeder valve back to tight. Second person lifts foot while valve is tight and then pushes pedal to floor again and THEN you again open bleeder valve slowly turning counter clockwise and watch for bubbles. Repeat until no more bubbles can be created in the bottle where the hose is submerged. Move to next caliper and repeat. For a firm brake pedal you will need to repeat this on all four calipers. My 2003 Kia's rear brake pads "fell apart" and never wore out in 190000 miles because they do not get used. The braking power is primarily in the front disk brakes on this model. Removing and replacing the rear drum brake linings did not even require me to bleed the brake lines. They weren't that tight before or after the replacement procedure.

my jeep was telling me that my rear lights needed replaced when they were working. turns out it was just the wrong bulb in one side from when it had gone out before, and i was just off a little so the bulb still worked, but the car was confused :)
