Brake lights don't work on my 2003 Deville DTS . The third brake light does not work either .


First check your owners manual for fuse box location and check for any blown fuses. Next check the brake peddle under the dash for a switch, which is mounted to the peddle arm and turns on the lights when the peddle is pressed in. If the switch has worked loose and is not being pushed when you are pressing the peddle the lights will not come on. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Brake light stays on with beeping sound


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

The brake pedal switch on a 2001 VW Beetle is placed above pedals on the support.

3. Unplug 4 pin connector from old switch and plug into new switch (it only goes one way...don't force it!). Insert new switch into frame and depress brake petal. You should turn it until it locks into place and is positioned like the original.

4. Start Bug. Press the brake pedal once or twice and the EPC light should go out ...

5. If it looks like that... great! Replace the cover over the foot well and you are done! If not, check the 4 pin connection and make sure it is fully seated in the switch. Also check to see if you can hear the switch engage when you press the brake pedal ... if not, you will need to remove the switch and adjust the push rod. The rod will move in and out for adjustment. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal as well!

That sounds like a faulty brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever under the dash, or a damaged wire at the wire connector to the brake light switch. Here are some images of what the brake light switch looks like to help assist you.

How do you get the E brake off?


I don't know if I can explain this correctly but I'll try. Some cars that have a foot peddle that activates the emergency brake when foot peddle is compressed. If there is not a brake release handle directly above the peddle, it might have a kind of spring release. Try pressing down on the peddle hard and then move your foot off and out of the way and it might spring back and release that way.

Parking brake wont release I pressed the foot pedal to set the brake; now it won't release in the usual fashion


The switch for the E brake realease is vacum operated and located in the steering colum. But it may be
as simple as a vacum line off under the dash. But for
the time being there is a manual release lever under the dash near the top of the e brake peddle.
Hope this helps.

thanks for the good information

the air sound AND the hard pedal means you have a brake booster concern

if the car is running ok we can rule out vacuum leaks so that leaves the check valve but with the car running even a check valve wont cause the concern

therefore you need to replace your booster

semi-tough job because you have to remove the master cylinder and typically there may be some push rod adjustments afterward

depending on your level of experience you may want to seek professional assistance

Hissing sound from brake pedal of Renault Scenic 2001


Hi,
From your description this appears to be a Brake servo issue.
The brakes are assisted by a vacuum created from the draw off the inlet manifold, it gives assistance too the brake pedal pressure by a large tank/cylinder mounted on the Bulkhead/firewall.
I feel that the sound you a hearing is air being draw into the Brake Servo from the foot pedal seal and the reason for fluctuation in the engine is the vacuum from the inlet manifold is being upset.
Attention I suspect should be addressed to the Brake servo/pedal seal or gaitor.
I hope this clarifies your thoughts?
Please remember to rate my effort.
