Question about 2000 Plymouth Neon

1 Answer

The brake warning light will not go out on the instrument panel of our 2000 Plymouth Neon. We have replaced a rear wheel cylinder, the lines have been bled. The master cylinder has been checked. I am wondering if a loose wire could be the issue. How can I access the rear of the instrument panel to check my wiring?

The issue will most likely NOT be dash wiring. Something is still tripped. Most likely is there is a switch that trips when one 1/2 of the brakes fail, like the rear wheel cylinder. Try bleeding brakes, again, including OTHER brakes than the ones that you repaired, allowing this switch to move in the other direction. Watch for the light to go out during this process.

How do I change the rear wheel cylinders on a 2003 dodge neon stx? any help would be greatly appreciated....


There will be two bolts on the back of the wheel cylinder that secure it to the backing plate.
- Remove the drums and all brake components obstructing the removal of the wheel cylinders.
- Remove the brake lines going into the back of the wheel cylinders, use plenty of spray lube, and work with the fittings on the lines gently, you may have to warm them with a torch to avoid damage if they are frozen.
- Replace wheel cylinders, re-connect brake lines
- Re-assemble rear brake components
- Bleed air from brake system
-Done!

I have a chrysler neon 2000, recently I noticed that the brake oil is leaking for the left side rear wheel. what could the problem be? thanks


If it is leaking from the top area of the plate, and you have drum brakes...then the wheel cylinder is leaking.

1999 Plymouth Breeze - rear brakes locking up


You have a proportioning valve stuck. From the master the brake lines will run down the wheel well to another valve then out to the front calipers and rears when the prop valve sticks or freezes it then causes the rear or front system to lock up or not proportion the system evenly. 2. If that is not the case you may have contamination in the lines or the rubber brake hoses whick allow fluid to pass through it will not allow it to return almost acting like a back check valve therefore keeping you brakes on.

Replace rear shoes


  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove the rear wheels.
  3. Remove the drums.
  4. Remove the automatic adjuster spring and lever.
  5. Remove the hold-down clips and pins.
  6. Rotate the automatic adjuster starwheel enough so both shoes move out far enough to be free of the wheel cylinder boots.
  7. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the actuating lever.
  8. Remove the lower shoe to shoe spring.
  9. With the shoes held together by the upper shoe to shoe spring, remove them from the backing plate. 0900c152800c4b3d.jpgKelsey Hayes rear brake assembly (left side shown) 0900c152800c4b3e.jpgExploded view of the drum brake assembly—2004 model shown
