I have a 97 blazer. My turn signals don't work...not even on the dash...no hazard lights...and brake lights are on without pressing the pedal...what can I do


this could be the signal switch that has shorted out or damaged. unplug the switch, this is down at the base of the steering colume, check for poor connections. with the switch connected, using a test light turning on the signals check for power at the connector. yellow is left signal, green is right signal. if you don`t have power at this spot the switch is bad.

Why is it hard to push on the brakes


The most obvious cause for a hard pedal is simply not enough vacuum. Check the brake power booster by pumping on the brake pedal while the car isn't running. Continue pumping until you've "bled off" the vacuum from the booster. Hold the pedal down while you start the car. The pedal should go down a bit more beneath your foot. If it doesn't, then you should examine the connection between the vacuum hose of the brake power and the engine's vacuum.
Replace the brake power booster if the connection's fine, which would fix the hard brake pedal problem.

It may be your calipers need replaced. Check them for signs of wear. Look at the metal spring where the brake pads sit.
Apply tension to the pad and see whether you hear a pop. If you do, the brake pad is moving too much on the bracket. Replace the caliper. This could help the hard brake pedal.

1978 chev motorhome brakes are hard to push down to stop


If they are standard power brakes, check the vacuum booster. The diaphragm may be broken. If it holds a vacuum it's OK. If the brakes run through the power steering pump, make sure the belt is tight and the steering is smooth.

Brake pedal is hard and vehicle is hard to stop, what could be the problem?


servo assist could be faulty
best way to check is
push pedal a few times with engine stopped
press down on brake pedal ,and at the same time start engine
the pedal should travel down more if your servo is working properly

Power brakes not working


No such thing as vacuum lines to the master cylinder. You do have a vacuum line on the brake booster (power assist). When you step on the pedal do you hear a whoosing sound down by your pedal. This is a leaking Booster. Needs replacement.

When you step on the brake does the engine rpm change. This is a leaking check valve (one way air valve).

Power Brake Booster is bad and will need to be replaced. The diaphram leaks when you push on the pedal which robs the engine of vacuum and causes it to stall and the brakes are hard because with a bad booster you get no power assist.
