Question about 2001 Daewoo Leganza

1 Answer

The brake light and batter light came on when the power steering pump started to fail - I know that the front rotors are warped - are the lights related to these problems, or can there be something else going on

Hi, the brake light is unrelated and is caused by low fluid level in the reservoir or a leak in the brakes. Check the reservoir first. If low, top it off and look for a leak.
The battery light may be related to the power steering, depending on how the pump failed. If the pump was jamming up, it could stop the belt and therefore the alternator too. Has the power steering been repaired and is the battery light still coming on?

What makes it shakes


Sounds like bad brake pulsation, meaning warped rotors. When rotors are warped , they push the caliper piston in and out ,causing the brake pedal to pulsate and shake the steering wheel. I would start with replacing the front pads and rotors, and if you have drum brakes in the rear, have those cleaned and adjusted for a more balanced braking system.

Front tire shakes when stepping on brake pedal


Front brake rotors can warp in heavy use. When it becomes warped it'll cause the steering wheel to shake when brakes are applied.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHEN I BRAKE BY A STOP STREET WITH MY 325TI BMW, THEN THERE IS SOME VIBRATION ON THE BRAKE PADDLE


Sounds like you may have warped front rotors. They can be felt in the brake pedal when stopping. The warpage of the rotor actually pushes the caliper piston in and out which is felt by your foot. Another vibration you may feel is the ABS system coming on if there are poor road surfaces.That feels quite a bit different than a warped rotor.

I have a brake pedal judder at low speed, it only starts at under 40 miles per hour,no ABS light comes on and the car has just passed an MOT but I still want to know what it is, any ideas?


Does this wobble the steering wheel or your seat? The difference is very important. If it shakes the steering wheel, you have warped front rotors. If it's more through the car and seats, rear rotors are warped. Let me know please.

I have a 1992 corolla brake peddal pulsalating?


if you can drive 50 mph and push on the brake pedal lightly and the steering wheel pulsates, the front rotors are warped. new does not mean straight, and cheap never means good. If you feel it in the pedal or your **** then the most likely problem is the rear brakes,.

As im pressing on the break from going about 45 mph the steering wheel shake as do the whole car could it need an allignment


that seems like you have a warpped rotor. If you need an alignment your car will veer to one side of the road or the other when you let go of the steering wheel at those speeds. Another way to test your front brakes for braking problems is to let loose of the steering wheel at about 35 miles per hour and press the brake quite firmly. If your car really veers right or left then, you know your problem is in the brakes. As a note, about 70% of your braking power comes from front rotors. But the shaking you are describing sounds like you could use a brake job. Pads and rotors are very inexpensive to purchase and rotors these days are not worth having turned...just buy new ones. If you are somewhat mechinically inclined, you can do a complete pad and rotor job for about 150 bucks saving yourself hundreds of dollars vs. having someone do it for you. Please let me know how everything turns out.

Steering wheel shakes when applying the breaks


most likely it is slight imperfections in the rotors.
there may only be rusty spots in the rotors, or slight warping. best thing is to have the rotors lightly turned on the vehicle if there isn't enough miles put on the vehicle to want to replace the brakes. if the pads are okay, bring it by somewhere like firestone and they'll turn the rotors on the vehicle...

2001 S Type Jaguar ABS and Traction Control fault lights on


Hi First I suggest that you get a diagonostic check on ABS system. and then a visual inspection of the brakes. Warped brake rotors do not make noice, but the steering will start to judder when brakes applied at around speeds from 40 up . Possible cause that the vehile picked up something from road such as nylon/ plastic/stone Mike
