2004 Pontiac Bonneville SLE How do I turn off the E-brake Chime?


disconnect a wire to the chime
cables that no longer in production can be made in a reputable brake shop from the sample
there are cable makers in industry that make cables to samples so find a cable /chain retailer and take the sample to them
it seems strange that a 3 year old car does not have spares still available so I would be checking around spares departments or brake repairs shop as well

Why are only two of my brakes working on my 98 bonneville pontiac?


This is a litlle strange as the master cylinder has the brakes usually set up with the fronts together and the rears together. you can see if the caliper on the front is siezed and the master cylinder frozen on the rear wheel. Does the car have ABS and if so have the lights come on

2002 pontiab bonneville i replaced rear rotar and when i drive it smells like something is buring and the wheel gets hot


Sounds like your pads are stuck, this could be a seized piston in the caliper. Check to see if the pads are touching the rotor without touching the brakes.

My Grand Prix is in pretty good shape but I think my brakes are starting or are already shot. When I drive it makes a strange squealing noise, but when I pick up speed it quiets down. I know it has to be...


The correct thing to do is to inspect the brakes. Some pads have a screecher that touches the disk to indicate pad wear...Likely yours does not have that type......

Get the brakes inspected, all 4 wheels and then proceed based on what you find there.

Sharp squeaking from rt rear wheel. Might be a bearing but it stops if i apply light brake pressure


your rear brakes need servicing!!Those sqeaking noises are from metal pins within the brake pads. They touch the rotor surface when the pads are worn. Usually when brakes are applied they tend to silence the squeal. Inspect the rear brakes for pad thickness. Hopefully this helpd!!

Rear brakes are making an alto sound when pressed lightly and espically in reverse. Is this the rotors?


the braking pads are worn, the noise is coming from the small tip that the brake manufacturer assemble on the pads to let you know when the pads need replacing

Unable to compress rear brake caliper is this caliper shot?


There is a tool that you can buy or rent at the parts house that you can connect to a hand tool EG: 3/8 rachet to use with a tool to compress the caliper while you turn the rachet. You will see some raised teeth on the calliper piston for the tool to bite on. Since the rear brake is used to lock the parking brake it has to have a self adjust to compensate for the brake pad wear. EG: Old school drum brakes adjust when you back up depressing the brakes and letting off while the vehicle is rolling allows for the adjuster to reset the brake shoe clearance.
