I own the sam,e model and had the same problem.The pads come off very easily you need an allen wrench socket to take off the calipers and can get a set of them for under $15.Also the rotors just slip off if you need to change them or at least have them turned.

Check the plug on the passenger side firewall. There's a resistor or something bolted into the firewall. The plug may just be corroded.

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango and after bleeding the brakes (after doing some brake work) we can't seem to get the peddle to stay hard. When taking it out for a drive the first time you press on the...


Bleed them again, and don't leave the bleeder open, every time the person lets up on the pedal. close on the way down and open and close next time etc. Your letting air back into the system. Don't let the master run dry.

Trouble code po572 on dodge dakota slt, 3.7 ltr


P0572 - Cruise Control/Brake Switch A Circuit Low

Switch number 1 on the cruise brakes has low voltage on the circuit. Or how about low voltage on your brake line switches or something? Check to see if inadvertantly the connection to the actual pressure switch (one for front & the one for the rear) may have pulled loose at the switch. These are located in the Hydrolic fluid line... Trace from calipers back. (Two wire connection).

Brakes


sounds like the ABS (anti-lock brake system) is not functioning properly or could also be a sticky brake caliper..

you could have warped rotors wich the pads and abs system ride on if there barely warped it takes them a while to warm up and start grabbing also you can make sure the studs of the piston's arnt to tight or that the pistons or brake pads them selves arnt damaged
