It is called clutch. If you press the clutch pedal and nothing happens then, if you are lucky, it is probably the clutch cable.
The clutch is activated by a cable fit into a gear after the cable, and pulling the clutch, which is attached to the motor.
You should have a qualified mechanic checking the clutch cable and eventually replacing it . This is usually not an expensive fix.
Even if from description it sounds rather unlikely, it can also be the clutch itself. In this case the job will be quite expensive, as the mechanic must partially dismantle motor (empty oil etc.) to replace the clutch.

My Hyundai 2003 front brakes overheat and stop the car from moving. What might be the course?


Hi,
How far do you drive before it starts to happen? ....Do you use your Left Foot to push the brake pedal? Are you sure your foot is not on the pedal while driving?

It sounds as if the caliper is 'frozen' - the caliper is what squeezes the brake rotor/disc and slows down the car.

GL,

If you make the jump with a wire at the switch and the brake lights work your new and old switch are not adjusted right on the brake peddle arm. make sure when you move the brake peddle that the switch is moving right to make/break the switch.

Break lights staying on


Brake switch or the relay stuck closed
try to tap the brake pedal several times quickly
disconnect the connector at the brake switch ( it should be towards the top of the brake pedal, and reconnect it.
and try the brake again
most likely it is this switch that is bad

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?


Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

Unable to bleed the brakes how do you bleed the reakes out


First fill the brake resivior then have someone pump pedal three times and hold pedal down, while you start at the right rear wheel open the bleeder screw and let fluid out and then close make sure who ever pumps pedal keeps preasure on it as you open bleeder because pedal will drop they must push and follow pedal, after you clsoe bleeder you then have them pump pedal again three times you will do this four to five times on each wheel make sure to check fluid level after each wheel is bleed, after the left rear you move to left rear then right front then last is left front, hope this helps.

When I push pedal; once in a while brake pedal


It sounds like you have a Anti Lock Brake system problem. take your car to a tire shop to check it out. That sounds dangerous.

Hi, you have an earth problem on the lights. You might want to check the earth connections on the lights and where the wire mounts to the body. Make sure the contact points make proper contact and are clean. If that is fine, look for a broken earth wire.

Look for a "electric only" switch ......on the brake pedal pivot where the master cylinder rod attaches. The switch has 2 wires.
Check for power to it and then power from it with the pedal depressed.It is held on with a single clip.
It is the most common cause of "no brake lights" on Ford trucks.
2nd common cause is bad wiring connections along the frame.
