HI, it sounds like your brake light switch is out of adjument. You can adjust the switch yourself. You will find the located at the top of the brake pedal. You may need to remove the plastic cover panel under the dash to get your hands up to the switch. The switch has a plunger on it that extends and retracts as the pedal is applied so you will need to push the brake pedal in by pushing on the back of the switch this will move the plunger closer. Now when you release the pedal and apply the brake pedal it will self adjust. This should correct your problem. Happy motoring.

How do i fix my Chevy Cobalt. Floor shifter stays stuck in park postion. I am pressing brake pedal and pushing the shifter button.


have a helper. tell him to press brake pedal. you come to back of vehicle and see if the brake lights work when helper press the pedal. if lights don't work the tail light fuse has blown. so you cant take from park. and on some brands if horn fuse blown you cant take from park.

Not shift park


Your gearshift lever (floor or column) has a safety feature that will not allow you to shift out of Park unless the brake pedal is depressed. There is a solenoid on the shifter that is tied to a switch on the brake pedal, which activates a relay that activates the solenoid. Problem could be the brake pedal switch , brake relay, or brake relay fuse (do your brake lights work when you step on the pedal?), or it could be the shifter solenoid or the wiring in between.

I have a 2002 ford explorer and sometimes its hard to shift to drive and the brake lights don't work unless I press really hard on the pedal.


*Hard to shift:
-Possible the shift cable need to be adjusted.
*Brake light is no working unless step(press really hard).
-Need to adjust the brake light switch. It's too closed or stuck.

Why does brake assembly fail when I press pedal?


Check for loose contacts or wiring that is causing a short circuit near the brake pedal, or at the rear light.

BRAKES BLED PEDAL GOES TO FLOOR WHEN STARTED


if a master cylinder is bad and you are sure you have all the air out and no leaks.pedal will go to floor , running or not. if booster is bad it will cause a hard pedal. but if master cylinder is bad it will turn on a brake light on dash if it works. make sure the wheel cylinders are not leaking. I beleive that the master cylinder is bad, or you have a leak somewhere. If the master cylinder is functioning properly, the brake pedal will depress to a certain depth and no further.

B LIGHTS NO WORK


"B" lights? You mean brake lights? Could be the brake light switch. I'd start there. It's fairly easy to replace. To check the brake switch, remove it, and see if the piece that pushes in is stuck be gently pressing on it and if it doesn't press in, gently pull on it to see if comes out. If it doesn't not freely move, that is probably your issue. The brake pedal assembly presses it in when you step on it. For a 2004 Forenza, the part # is 37740-85Z22. If you have a 2005 - 2008 Forenza, the part # is 37740-86Z21. Both are under $20.

My brake warning light is on fluid is good and it sounds like i am just pumping air and the pedal has to be pressed down to the floor


Sounds like you have to bleed the brakes. Check that the brake fluid reservoir cap doesn't have a ripped or leaking gasket. I would recommend bleeding your brakes.
