I would think that this is one of your least expensive fixes, in the long list of possible problems with vehicles. A tech would replace the line and then do a brake system fill and bleed. If it is the only problem, its possible for a tech to do it without removing a single wheel.

I have a 99 dodge ram 1500. the brakes go all the way to the floor and the abs brake light comes on. i refilled with brake fluid and the light goes out the brakes work fine, then in about 2 days it...

good chance you have a leak in your break line. easy way to check is have someone press break while you look under the car. best position is just behind wheel look for fluid to spray out you will see a break line from the axel area to your wheel gl

Brakes on a 99 dodge 1500 van need to be bled did front and back but still no brakes wher do you find the abs unit to bleed

i dont think thats your problem. bleeding at the wheels is all you need to do. try looking for leaks in the brake lines, a common problem is the brake line going to rear brake hose it rots beside the gas tank, take a look see if its wet, hope this helps.

99 Dodge Ram 1500 2x4 rear brakes not working, shoes are like new only 60,000 miles on truck. front brakes appear to be the only ones working.

Try bleeding the lines. Put a 2 foot long vacuum hose on the bleeder screw, and submerse the other end in a bottle of brake fluid. Loosen the bleeder screw, and pump brakes until there are no more bubbles coming out of the hose. Tighten screw. Make sure the reservoir is full at all times. Adjust brakes if necessary.

Brake fluid is leaking out the front left tire!

This is most likely a busted or separated line that is connected to the brake housing(on the front tire assembly). inspect the line for a tight fit. replace the line and coupler if found to be defective.

In most severe cases, the caliber may be faulty.
