Question about 2003 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Sonoma. I have put 4 sets of brake shoes on in 3 weeks time. My brake lights or still coming on and when i brake it almost throws me throughs the windshield, and after about 30 minutes driving the brakes start to squeal. I have also replaced the drums. Do you have any ideas what the problem could be?

Have a 03 mustang and brake light switch keeps going out its happened 3-4 times within months they keep switching it for nothing but why does it go out over and over, it went out again the other day again


There is a switch under the dash for the Brakes. If this is the part they are replacing it can be due to physical damage caused by shoes hitting it. If you can check the repair bill find out if the switch is broken or burned out each time it was replaced.

If the switch is burning up, you need to trace the Brake wiring to the 3 fixtures. The high fixture and both taillights. Your problem would be bad light sockets or a bad wire to the brake. You are just operating about 3 lightbulbs, which at best is maybe 3 Amps. But if the power is grounding through a bad wire or bad socket, it will draw as much as it takes to melt the connection.

Don't know how important it is to you to know if your feet or someone else's feet are hitting the underdash switches. You could put ATV blue on the switch and it would rub off on the shoes hitting the switch. But it could make a mess on a carpet or start a War.

I hope you find my solution very helpful.

The parking brake light is on and the parking


hi from uk if as you say the brake fluid level is slightly above min ? then this is most probably the reason the warning light is on this light is also linked to both park brake when on and a visual warning via a sensor on the reservoir that brake fluid is low top reservoir up ? light should/will go off however! fluid level drops for two reasons = 1 fluid leak on b/system 2 or in your case the fluid level has dropped by displacement from reservoir to brake calipers/cylinders as the brake pads and/or shoes wear down to minimum safe thickness ? and if your car has brake pads wear indicators fitted to pads these sensors will put light on SO may i suggest you check your brake pads/shoes ASAP because if pads/shoes are very low ? you may not only damage the more expensive disc/rotors but pads may/will burn up resulting in brake failure with obvious results ? hope you heed this advice? it is for your safety and other drivers best wishes

What kind of rear breaks do I need on my 2003 mitsubishi outlander


The rear brakes are the same drum & brake shoe type.
Each rear wheel has a brake drum that rotates with the wheel. When the brakes are applied, a brake shoe is forced into contact with the brake drum to slow wheel rotation...........................sodeep
