ABS engages without braking


You might check the rear Emergency brakes. The brake linings peel off the mounts and whirl around inside the E brake drum. The ABS sensors react to the garbage grinding up, blinding the sensors.

What is needed to fix emergency brake on dodge nitro


Adjust the Emergency Brakes
  • 1 Raise the car on a car lift. While using a car jack may be tempting, do not use it. A car jack is much too unstable to properly support a car for long and should at least be reinforced with safety stands.2 Locate the emergency brake adjustment. It will be found underneath the car, roughly in the area where the emergency brake pedal is located in the interior of the car.
  • 3 Adjust the emergency brake using either a screwdriver or a wrench, depending on the make and model of your vehicle. The brake line will be visible and in most cases will need to be tightened. This can be accomplished by turning the emergency brake adjustment so the line becomes tighter.4 Test the emergency brake again by parking on a sloping road and engaging the emergency brake, again noting at what point it engages when it has beenpressed and at what point it is fully engaged.5 Repeat the adjustment process until the emergency brake will engage properly. Take care not to adjust the emergency brake too tight, or it will always be engaged, which will damage your hydraulic brakes as well as the emergency brake.

Brake lights won't work unless I put my car in park. Looks strange


Your vehicle is equipped with a stop lamp relay. The only thing I can think of that could even remotely have anything to do with the symptoms you are describing, is that another circuit (possibly transmission control solenoids?) have a bad connection somewhere and are feeding back and preventing your brake lamp relay from working.
I think I would start with a scan of your Engine Control Module, your Transmission Control Module and your Intrument Panel Cluster to see if there are any fault codes present that may lead you to a malfunctioning circuit.

My tailkights are not working at all. My Park in the car is stuck and won;t come down with motor started.


turn engine off. Turn key to OFF position, (no lights on dash lit). Step on brake, pull shift lever to neutral. start car, put in drive and go. this is emergency bypass.

When the key is ON, the shift lock soneoid is engaged and won't release till the brake is applied. Since you don't have brake lights, it means the solenoid won't unlock.
check for a blown fuse or a bad brake switch on the brake pedal.

OFF is the first click clockwise from LOCK. it goes, LOCK, OFF, ON, START.

Your sensor could be on the bar that distributes the fluid to your wheels. If it is, that equalizer bar could have some air in it. Or the sensor could be bad, and sometimes you just have to reset the system, try pulling the negative battery cable off for five minutes and then putting it back on.

The e brake light on dash stayes on


Check brakes to make sure that they are not low then check brake fluid level if low add fluid and the light should go off. If it doesn't check the float/sensor on the inside of master cylinder and make sure that it is floating and make sure that wire plug on master is plug in for sensor to read. If all of this don't work check and make sure that emergency brake is not engaged or not hanging up. engage and release to make sure it works. If all of this don't work then you will need professional help. Good Luck

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Hi,

Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
