How do you know that a brake booster is bad?


Booster problems are rare but they do go bad sometimes.
A bad booster generally causes the brake pedal to feel hard to push down, and a lot of pressure on the brake pedal is required to make the car stop.
Rarely, a vacuum brake booster will develop a vacuum leak, which can cause engine performance problems, hissing or whistling noise, as well as requiring increased pressure on the brake pedal to stop.

The first test:
With the vehicle parked, turned OFF, and the parking brake set, pump the brake pedal 5 to 6 times. If the pedal gets harder to push after several times, your booster is probably good.

The second test (To make sure):
After the test above, without making any changes, press and hold the brake pedal with light to moderate pressure.
Now with your foot still on the brake pedal, start the vehicle.
If the booster is good, you will feel the pedal go down when the engine starts.

Hope this helps!

Lexus brake lights come on when I cut the car off


Power brake vacuum booster might have a leak. Try disconnecting the vacuum line (and plug it so it doesn't leak) and check the brake light with the engine on, then off. No change then the booster has a leak.

HArd brake pedal and low stopping power after changing brake booster


I had my power brake booster go bad and I replaced mine as well as bleed the brakes that when I went and tried them out 'I slammed on my breaks early before getting to close to the light' that my car left skid marks all over that road because the brakes worked like power brakes should and yours sound like your booster was installed wrong or the pads are bad or you didn't bleed all the air out of the line. Your problem you described was like it felt before I replace brake booster ie lousy non power brakes when I had power brakes.

How did you bleed your brakes or did you even do that? their should be a little nipple on your calipers or even the brake booster to bleed the system.

Brake pedal has alot of back pressure and car moves in gear.Have to press real hard to stop.How to check abs pump if has one where or brake booster or master cylinder?Don't know how to trouble shoot or...


The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

I need instrustion to install a brake switch


It is a generic Nissan brake light switch replacement procedure... the brake light switch on a Nissan Altima i.e. controls the illumination of the brake lights. Without the switch, the lights would not go on. The switch has no service life, so when it goes, it usually happens suddenly. New brake light switches can be obtained from Nissan or from a Nissan dealership.

1. Remove the cotter pin from the pin bolt that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster with a pair of pliers. There is a small cotter pin running through the brake pedal to brake booster connection. You need to pull this cotter pin out to remove the larger pin that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster.
2. Slide the pin out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
3. Pull up on the brake pedal to slide it out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
4. Remove the bolts holding the brake switch to the firewall using a socket wrench.
5. Remove the electrical connector on the brake switch by pulling it straight off the switch.
6. Slide the switch off the firewall.
7. Install the new switch. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure that you replace the cotter pin in the brake booster to brake pedal connection. The cotter pin prevents the retaining pin in the brake booster mounting bracket from coming off.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

Have a 90 dodge dakota bad booster, i changed the brake booster and bled master cylinder. still need to assemble the drum brakes but the brake light is staying on. i read up and pushed the brake light...


You sure you have the correct booster
Or use the same rod
You should not have to bleed anything,you
didn't open the brake system
Now you need to bleed all 4 corners,never
the master,that is a myth.

Ever consider the engine has to be running for
the booster (vacuum remember) to work,
and you can not bleed the brakes without
the engine running as you have to have
someone push the brake pedal thus the booster

the rear brakes shouldn't be apart if your pumping
the pedal,now you screwed up the brake switch position

How do i change a brake booster


from autozone.com:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Apply the parking brake.
  3. Unplug all necessary electrical connections.
  4. Remove the master cylinder from the booster and pull it off the studs, CAREFULLY! It is not necessary to disconnect the brake lines.
  5. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the check valve.
  6. If necessary, remove the brake light switch.
  7. Disconnect the booster pushrod at the brake pedal.
  8. Remove the booster mounting nuts, located on the inside of the firewall.

  2. Tighten the booster mounting nuts to 21 ft. lbs. (29 Nm) on all except 1996-98 models. On 1996-98 models, tighten the nuts to 26 ft. lbs. (36 Nm).

BRAKE BOOSTER?


A bad brake booster will result in a hard brake pedal, stiff and more effort required to stop the truck. Here are my questions to you, first, you said you replaced the master cylinder, did you bench bleed it before you installed it? If not, there IS still air in it, regardless of how much you bleed the brakes at the wheels. Second, when you bled the brakes, after changing the calipers and master cyl., did you also bleed the proportioning valve? Sometimes air can get trapped in the valve, and its almost impossible to get it out bleeding just the wheels. And lastly, when the brake light comes on, does the abs light also come on with it? Air can also get trapped in the abs control module too.
