There seems a vacuum /air lock in the servo and must be checked in the master cylinder unit.
With the car engine running have the pedal kicked while you release the assist to the servo unit , if so the master cylinder must be overhauled .

Brake lights won't turn off after releasing brake


Do you have cruise control? Does it work? If it doesn't then most likely you need to replace the brake light switch. The switch can be found on the brake pedal assembly.

2001 cadillac sls parked on sloping driveway with emergency brake on. Emergency brake will not release when car turned on and put in gear. Will not release by pulling down on yellow brake release lever...


There is likely a siezed cable or caliper,possibly because the hand brake hasn't been used regularly.Jack up the rear of the car,see which wheel,or both are stuck.The cable(s) will then need to be cut close to the wheel,or possibly hammered back.

Brakes pulsate when you put them on. When I take off from a complete stop it feels like the brakes are not releasing immediately.


Pulsating brakes are often caused by warped brake rotors. In order to check for a brake that isn't releasing I would suggest lifting one wheel at a time, applying the brakes and immediately checking if that wheel turns freely. Repeat on all 4 wheels. If you find one that isn't turning freely you'll have to address the problem with that brake.

My rigth side front brake is locking the wheel off while driving and the brake is applied


most common cause would be a bad disk brake caliper, or bad brake hose.

the way to find out witch one, is to jack up the front of the car and put it on jack stands. put the transmission in neutral. then turn the front wheels one at a time and wile turning the wheel have some one apply the brake the wheel should stop turning immediately and then wile applying pressure on the wheel have the person in the car release the brake pedal the brake should release immediately if not, then open the brake bleeder on the offending caliper if the brake releases then. you have a bad brake hose if the brake still does not release with the bleeder open then you have a bad brake caliper.

GOOD LUCK

I have a 96 isuzu rodeo,3.2 and the brakes will lock up on their own, gradually then it takes about 15 minutes for them to release, any thoughts?


this could be caused by a few things, first you need to jack the truck up you will need all 4 wheels off the ground, put the transmission in neutral and have some one get in the truck and wile turning each wheel have the person in the truck push the brake pedal the wheel should stop instantly then have the person release the brake the brake should release instantly,( do this to each wheel ) if all brakes remain locked ( wont release instantly ) then replace the master cylinder if the both rear brakes wont release instantly replace the brake hose from the frame to the rear differential, if the both front brakes wont release replace master cylinder, if only one front brake wont release open the bleeder on that brake caliper if the wheel releases replace the caliper hose if the brake still wont release with the bleeder open replace the caliper, you should replace the caliper and brake hoses as a pair.
