When you put your wheels on , most people do not realize that the wheels need to be torqued down. A lot of mechanics just use there air gun or brute force to put a wheel on a disc brake. If the bolts are over tightened or unevenly tightened the disc will warp. That is what is causing the pulsing when you brake. The only way to fix the pulse is to put on a new disc and torque the wheel correctly. Having the disc turned will only amplify the problem. You need to replace the warped disc with a new one.

It could be that your brake fluid reservoir is empty. You might also have a crack in the line.

You most likely have warped rotors. If they are not too worn, machining them should take care of this, and most parts stores can do this.

Brakes pulsating


If you have ABS on this vehicle which these models do, the brakes will ulsate if the pedal is depressed quite hard.

It does this because the ABS is working and it does make the brake pedal feel like its vibrating.

Hope this helps

Break problems

Your ABS (antilock brake system) has detected a problem in the system that is causing the ABS pump motor to activate. I suspect you have a bad front wheel speed sensor providing false information to the onboard computer. The system will need diagnostic work performed to locate the actual cause of failure.I hope this helps. Good luck
