The spring in the master cylinder is supposed to push the pedal back up. In the bore of the master cylinder goes first a spring, then the piston(s). That is the spring I mean.

Either that spring has broken or is somehow compromised, or the pivot of the pedal is dirty/rusty or the bore where the piston(s) go is filled with crud/rust/corrosion and the spring in the master cylinder cannot overcome that added friction.

I have a 2005 PT Cruiser and the brake lights will not go off but the funny thing is I noticed that there is a box by the brake pedal that somehow fell and is hanging could this be the problem. I ha


That box probably is the brake switch. The brake light switch is usually, if not always, mounted on the brake pedal. You will have to look up under the dash at the upper end of the pedal. See if you can fit the box back onto the pedal. There should be a spring loaded button on one end that activates the switch. When pressed in, switch is off. When button or pin is out, switch is on, and brake lights are on.

I have a 1996 Nissan Quest XE and am experiencing problems with the brake lights randomly staying on. For the most part, the brake lights turn off when I let go of the brake pedal but rather frequently...


Make sure that the wires to the brake switch are not getting pinched. If you press the brake and the problem goes away, then the problem has to be centered there in the brake pedal area. The other thing you can check is to make sure that the brake pedal springs back to normal location, if the spring is broken or worn out, then the whole weight of the pedal is going to lean on the switch, turning it on eventually. The brake pedal should barely touch the switch and not rest on the switch.(some brake switches may be different and may not be push button). Either way, make sure that brake pedal is coming up all the way.

I have abs system my brakes are so hard like when the car is turn off and looks that only have brakes no the front


Check your vacuum brake booster; with the engine off, press firmly on the brake pedal, then start the engine. If the pedal sinks noticeably, the booster is OK. If it doesn't, the drum-like device between the fire wall and the master brake cylinder is bad and should be replaced.
If you can't get a good feel from this action, you should have a specialist check your brake system; this isn't something to ignore.

Why do the tail lights stay on even when truck is turned off


Sounds like your brake pedal detector switch is stuck on. On the brake pedal lever/mechanism look for a small switch that is broken. Exact location of and type of switch will vary with your model truck. Local auto parts stores should carry them, nothing expensive usually.

When you press the brake pedal down, the lever is supposed to press the switch down, and when you let go of the brakes nornally the small switch should spring back and turn off brake lights.

How do I bleed the front brakes on a 2004 audi a4 quattro?


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!! For front brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow: 1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose! 2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper. 3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease). 4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier. 5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston. 6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary! 7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing. 8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward). 9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier. 10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm. 11. Install both caps. 12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

Emergency brake pedal will not stay down when i press it.


The parking brake actuator (the mechanism you press with your foot) works like a ratchet wrench. The pedal has a cresent shaped plate with teeth on it. It pivots on a mounting plate. There is a pawl with a small spring also on the backing plate. This pawl engages the teeth on the pedal assembly to hold the brake engaged (against the large return spring).
Stick your head under the dash and look carefully at the parking brake actuator mechanism. See why the pawl is not engaging the teeth on the pedal assembly. Most likely causes are that the release mechanism is jammed "on" or that the light spring which attaches to the pawl is missing (usually from being kicked by some one with large feet) View this mechanism on another GM vehicle with the same style parking brake if you suspect that parts are missing.
