Have a 99 Toyota camry n brake light is on after changing right front brake caliper


Master cylinder fluid piston has entered into a brake safe mode.
when the high pressure brake system is opened in any way, the brake master cylinder piston reaches to the far end of the master cylinder which trips the brake system warning light.

This brake light condition is due to sudden loss of brake fluid pressure on the right front brake caliper assembly during the replacement.

Left rear brake caliper bleed valve will ned to be "opened" until master cylinder piston travels into the opposite direction which "resets" the brake system warning light.

Dot 4 brake fluid recommened for most, but not all vehicles.
Reference vehicle to owners manual for replacement fluid is replaced under master cylinder brake system cap.

20000 GMC Jimmy brake light came on, someone told us it's the booster. Is this the same as the master cylinder or something different. Also where is it located?


don`t just change parts because someone told you to without checking it out first.with the brake light on check the fluid level in the master cylinder if its down check the float in the cylinder as these will get stuck.also check for fluid leaks in the entire brake system and condition of the brakes themselves as when they wear especially the disc brakes the fluid will go down as the brake fluid takes up the worn brake material so the calipers don`t have to move as far to apply the brakes.the master cylinder is the component that holds the brake fluid under the hood that you would top up if low.the brakes booster is what the master is bolted to and gives the car power brakes as opposed to manual brakes.

My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor there is no any brake oil leak i replace the brake master cylinder i bleed the system but still the same what is the correct procedure to bleed brake system...


fill master cylinder, start at right rear. the way I do it is make sure cap is back on master cylinder. pump the brakes a few times then hold them. have another person open the bleeder valve at the tires until brakes go to floor. hold them down until bleeder is retightened but be sure master cylinder is not out of fluid. then go to left rear and do the same procedure, then right front, then left front. check fluid and if air is all out there should be brakes. good-day ! THIS IS HOW I HAVE ALWAYS DONE IT ! heres a little trick of sorts. you can change a master cylinder, and if you bench bleed it first. and no fluid is lost from the master cylinder lines you do not need to bleed the whole system. but make sure cylinder is full of fluid before putting on vehicle and all air is out of master cylinder.

Where is the brake master cylinder in a 1990 toyota camry


The brake fluid master cylinder is attached underneath the break fluid reservoir which is where you put brake fluid into. The master cylinder system goes directly into the brake booster which mounts in the fire wall on the driver side.

1992 olds regency ninty eight. Break pedal seems to go down futher than it should when applying. when stopped at a light brake pedal seems to slip going further down some. Checked for leaks on brake lines...


if master cylinder is bad. the pedal will go to floor running or not.when the pedal goes down at a standing stop it is usually the master cylinder thats bad. and losing vacuum. thats if there are no other leaks at wheel cylinders etc. if putting on a new master cylinder, do not forget to bench bleed it! heres how. put the master cylinder in the vise, fill it full of fluid then pump the plunger with a dowel or something soft as to not ruin plunger part.do not let it run dry ! when fluid comes out from master cylinder and no more air is in it. fill it up and put on car. heres what I do! remove the lines from old cylinder on car. as long as you do not lose any fluid doing this, there is no need to bleed air from brakes when done. after on car make sure master cylinder is full of fluid. start the car and pump the brakes a few times, then you should be all set.

I change my master cylinder for my brakes and now I have no brakes what could be my problem to that


you must have a lot of air in system. the brakes need bleed to let the air out of system. did you bench bleed the master cylinder before putting it on car ! if not thats why no brakes. to bench bleed a new master cylinder, put it in a vise. fill it full or the proper level of brake fluid. push on the plunger with a dowel or another object. pump it till all air is out of master cylinder, you can tell when no air. it will be all fluid coming out of cylinder. keep checking brake fluid in master cylinder.make sure you push plunger in all the way.when all air is gone replace on car. if you do not loose any fluid from the master cylinder lines, then you can replace it without having air in system. bleed each wheel if needed. good-day!

Brake fluid leak after the fluid has been filled. I noticed leakage not to far from the compartment that holds the fluid four bolts that have fluid on the top of them


if you clean the area and put brake fluid in the master cylinder and have some one push on the brake pedal while you look for a leak in the general area you should see were its leaking or spraying from.

Brakes are sticking when the pedal is applied, also what would be the result of a normal pedal but you have to pull up on the pedal with your foot to release the brakes


What you are describing is brake drag. Brake drag occurs when there is still fluid under pressure left in the brake lines. When you apply brake pressure, brake fluid is pushed into the brake lines from the master cylinder, with a piston. During normal operation, when released, the brake pedal should return to a resting position as the brake fluid returns to the master cylinder. Brake drag may be caused by any of the following:

A) The master cylinder piston is not returning far enough for the brake fluid return into the compensating port.

B) Topping off the master with automatic transmission fluid, engine oil, or power steering fluid, can well the rubber seals in the brake lines. The mineral oil in these fluids can affect the composition of the rubber in the brake line.

C) The master cylinder push rod could be out of adjustment.

You problem could be caused by, but is not limited to, any one of these symptoms; each and every car is different, and some have problems that can stump the greatest technicians for weeks, so do not take this as your solution, but rather a place to start.

My 1994 buick lesabre's brakes will not work. I have low brake fluid and the brake pads were just replaced. My friend said that there was brake fluid leaking from the car and that I might need a master...


if you can see a good amount of wet brake fluid between the brake master cylinder and the brake booster. and you have been adding fliud often,you could have a bad master cylinder. it has to be replaced not rebuilt. you however may have a far more common problem, a rusted through brake line.have someone pump the brake pedal, than look under the car for a brake fluid leak ,repair as needed. than bleed the brakes for a good hard brake pedal
good luck chris
