I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid and recently replaced the rear break pads. I've noticed that randomly; while, driving and pressing on the break petal, it sinks in slowly. What can I do to fix the problem?...

Check to make sure that you put brake grease on the back of the pad where it meets the caliper. Also, for the brake petal slowly sinking, this is most likely caused from air in the brake line. Make sure you bleed the brake lines and check for any possible leaks.

2001 pontiac bonneville, the right front brake is locked up. i just put brakes and rotors in august

Sounds like caliper seized or is binding. More than likely you'll have to replace caliper and rotor re surfaced.

How do you retracked the rear disc brake piston into the caliper of my 2003 Pontiac Bonneville. all wheel disc brakes.

with the caliper off the disk assembly -- you can use a big C-clamp to compress the piston in. also if a C-clamp is not around, you can simply loosen the 'zerk' fitting ( the bleeder ) and push the piston hard by hand. ( note: oil will shoot out of bleeder, so put a rag over it to protect your eyes and brake parts ) -- also make sure when you put it all back together that you bleed the brake lines of all air.

Rear Brakes sticking on my 1989 Pontiac Bonneville. When I come to a complete stop, it feels like the rear brakes lock up. When I start to drive the it feels like driving w/ the parking break on, and...

the system uses a drum brake system on the rear. What happens, is where the shoe sits against the backing plate, it tends to wear and leave a mild to severe grove which can cause the shoes to stick until it is pulled back by the springs and returned to it's normal operating position. If you want to save yourself some money, I can walk you throuhg the repiar and what to look for. I can also send diagrams if you feel confident enough in your mechanical ability. Let me know. These are pretty easy. Put the money in your pocket!!

Rear window break light

You either have a 'single filament' bulb installed in a 'dual filament' brake lamp socket ... OR .. you have a 'dual filament' bulb short circuited internally. Check your rear brake lamp bulbs (supposed to be 'dual filament' - two contacts on their bottoms). When you step on the brake pedal, do your dash lights LIGHT UP? A 'cross circuit' exists between brake lamp circuit and parking lamps circuit.
