Question about 1995 Buick Skylark

1 Answer

Braking/eletrical when I depress the brake pedal my speedometer needle jumps around and the radio lights and headlights flicker a bit. If I ignore this problem after maybe 15 mins of driving the car, it will stall when I brake to a stop. It will start back up but obviously there is a problem here. One time the anti-lock brakes came on before it stalled. The only thing I've done is replace the brake pads because i needed new ones anyway.

2007 Cadillac SRX rear tail light stays illuminated after taking foot off brake, also comes on and off, flicker, without brakes depressed.


your brake switch needs adjustment, located down under dash on brake bracket, when the brake is depressed it lets the switch out, and when the brake is not depressed the switch is in. adjust the switch by screwing it closer to the pedal so it gets depressed more, usually 2 turns will do it

Tip

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
