Not sure if you mean while driving or when parked with the ignition off but here are a couple reasons on why the brake pedal may be high and low at different times. If the vehicle is running the brake pedal will feel the same just about every time. If the car is off and you step on the brakes it will get harder and harder to push down since there is no vacuum assist. Another reason would be the brake pad thickness. New brakes the pedal will feel higher where as worn brake pads the pedal may feel lower. Another reason would be if you have air in the brake lines. this will make the pedal feel mushy and soft at first and firm up as you pump the brakes. Hope this helps.

1998 Saturn Sc2 coupe Only drivers side low beam comes on passenger side off it has no power High beams work How can I fix this?


Find the break in the power wire for the low side. High beam works, ground is good. Low beam works on the other side, so you have power threw the switch and turn signal. Wires usually break close to the plug. Also check the plug for corrosion. White to a greenish color.

My break lights won't work when my headlights are


you might have the bulbs installed backwards. the bulbs have two elements a low and high. you might be seeing the low when you hit the brakes. if the bulbs are in or wired backwards you would not see the low to high difference if the were in backwards and the lights were on

Just had a warning light come on a 2002 Rio. (!) Looked at manual; looks like a warning for low brake fluid. I looked at fluid level and it's at MAX??


Hello,

Sometimes when your light comes on or code comes on, that represents being low on break fluid ,does not always mean that your fluid container is low, it also means you could have a blockage, or a leak somewhere. But more often then not, it usely is a sensor that goes to your breaks, that when pads get worn, or close to warn, there is a sensor that activates your computer and meaning there is a break issue going on. Of course sometimes it is low on fluid, but most the time it is not that. What i would do ( and its free) is hit up a les swab and have them first check all your breaks and break sensors, most likely it will be found there. Thanks Mike

The high beams work but the low beams dont


Check the fuses. If both low-beams went out at exact same time, it is probably the fuse (hopefully not a wiring short).
If they went out with a couple days or weeks of each other, it could just be the bulbs. They typically have very close lifespans and if they were installed at the same time, could burn out near the same time.
If the fuse is good, take the bulbs out. Look for a break in the filament.
Sometimes a fuse can break right at the base and you can't see it and sometimes a bulb can burn out without breaking the filament. If you can't see a break in either, start by replacing the fuse. (You can even take a same sized fuse out of a non-vital electronic (maybe radio, or power windows) and put it in the low beam spot.) If they work, there's the problem. Replace the missing fuse and your good. If not, then replace the bulbs.

Return Vehicle to the dealership for service, there is a recall out for this problem unsure if this model is included but I would still return it to the dealership for immediate servicing.

High-low beams not working


Check for headlight relay and fuse. Some cars have separate circuits for head light flasher and normal high/low beam. From your description, I would suspect a bad connection to/from relay or relay itself.

4 wd low range will sometimes engage 4wd high will never engage


I had a very similar problem with my 98 gmc 2500. The 4 low would engage - though the upshifts were erratic, but no 4 high though the light sometimes came on. I changed out the electric shift solenoid or whatever it is called, on the transfer case and it worked fine after that. A fairly simple fix that can be done in 15 minutes. Hope this helps.
