Hi there you might have to look to see if you have any brake pads left at all or if your rotors are to thin if they are ok you just might have to bleed them on the callipers there is a nozile you pump the brakes up 5 times then open the nozzile and let all the air out do both sides and repeat till only fluid comes out and also check your brake lines for and cracks leaks or if they are wearing out

Horrible break pedal.


Is there any grinding? You may need new front brake pads. I might also have the brakes bleed for there may be air in brake line. Thank you and Please leave feedback

Why does my brake pedal have to much travel?


one reason is that the master cylinder is leaking between the chambers and means the rubber seals in there are worn.

number 2 : brake pads worn and disks bent so when wheel spinning the pads are pushed off so it takes more for the pedal to travel


number 3:the pads are not good quality and splitting as the metal and the material on the metal resulting to similar case as number 2


or

what it feels like if you are breaking?

low speed jumping on the breake is it blocking all the wheels sreight ?

Brake pedal drops very low on first press only


It is most likely you have air in the brake fluid. The first press of the pedal compresses the air and the effect lasts for a little while.
Another cause may be warped (bent) rotors, the pads can be pushed back into the calipers by the off center area of the rotor. This means that the pads have to travel further in order to contact the rotors when you press the pedal.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

The breaks are not sticking the break pedal is off but the break lights remain on


the switch at the top of the brake pedal needs adjusting that is all your problem is .put your hand up under the dash .near the top of the brake pedal arm you will feel the switch, with no pressure on the pedal it should push the centre pole of the switch inwards, that switches the power to the brake lights off ,when pressure is applied to the pedal so the poleswitch comes out and earths out the switch and completes the circut-- hence brakelights come on.. adjust it so the swich is in with no pressure on the pedal and your brake lights will be off. do not over adjust as then they wont come on. good luck

Brake pedal goes to floor when engine is running


You need to see if you have fluid in the master cylinder's resivoir.. low fluid or no fluid could be a low break pads or out of adjustment problem ....if fluid is low add dot3 break fluid..and step on the pedal a few times...if the level seems to hold it could be out of adjustment or low pads . If the fluid leaks out then you have a leak and must attempt to find it yourself or with a mechanic. It is possible you may have air traped in the system and it may need to be bled out by a mechanic. I say a mechanic because this is a crittical safety system needed to stop the car !! If you are not sure of how to repair a leaking brake line or caliper or master cylinder leave it to a pro . At least you may be able to find out what is leaking with this help .

2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving


i would check front and rear brakes if rears are drum brakes i would inspect springs and hardware making sure everthing is conected and in place also make sure they are adjusted properly in the front and if rear disc i would make sure to grease caliper slides these allow caliper to move and its important that all moving brake parts are free push caliper pistons in alittle to see if they are sized or not booster is ok and most of the time when master goes it will leak where it meets booster and you will have a low brake pedal or no brakes

96 Chevy 4x4 Break lights don't work and fuse is good


Have you checked the brake light switch under the brake pedal? It may be out of alignment with the pedal lever or dislodged from it's connector. If it is still in the right position, check if pedal travel compresses the switch, if not adjust it so it does. If everything is in order and it still doesn't work, replace the switch. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

I have a 1975 chevyvan 30 motorhome. The brake warning light came on on the dash. Checked fluid and it was low so added fluid. When stopped I can pump the brakes up firm but when motor running the pedal...


Air in the lines, or a leakey line or caliper, do you see any fluid leaking on the rims? or under the car? if not they prolly just need to be bled.
