Car won't start and displayed depress brake pedal. Brake pedal is hard to press


Are you brake lights coming one when you press the brake pedal? If not, the issue is probably a dead battery. If the lights are coming on, it is probably a defective brake switch (which tells the car when you are pressing the brake).

When I stomp on my brakes let's say in an emergency the pedal is very hard and the brakes don't realy work at all but if I use them normally they are perfect it's on a ford au xr6 ute


to test your brake assist is working. stop the motor. Press w few times the brakes, till the pedal feels sturdy. Then while pressing the pedal down firmly, start the engine. When you feel the pedal going down, like feeling "soft" you know the brake assist works. If nothing changes it is defect.

Why is it hard to push on the brakes


The most obvious cause for a hard pedal is simply not enough vacuum. Check the brake power booster by pumping on the brake pedal while the car isn't running. Continue pumping until you've "bled off" the vacuum from the booster. Hold the pedal down while you start the car. The pedal should go down a bit more beneath your foot. If it doesn't, then you should examine the connection between the vacuum hose of the brake power and the engine's vacuum.
Replace the brake power booster if the connection's fine, which would fix the hard brake pedal problem.

It may be your calipers need replaced. Check them for signs of wear. Look at the metal spring where the brake pads sit.
Apply tension to the pad and see whether you hear a pop. If you do, the brake pad is moving too much on the bracket. Replace the caliper. This could help the hard brake pedal.

HOW DO YOU BLEED THE BRAKES ON 100 SERIES CRUISER


Start the engine, fill up full the brake fluid reservoir, and let someone press the brake pedal down to the floor for 3 times,, bleed the bleeder screw behind the tire.. position yourself closed to back plate of drum or caliper for easy bleeding work. when the bleeding screws is loosed brake fluid leaks with a bubbles. then close it again and tell the guy in the pedal brake to press it again until a hard press is felt and bleed the bleeder screw again, stop only the process when there is a hard pressing already on the brake pedal which is the brake system is now working properly.

Brake pedal hard to press has a hissing sound


Check the vaccume line going to the brake booster. BUT if you can hear a hissing sound from inside and the pedal is hard to press more than likely your going to need a new brake booster and a new brake master cylinder.

I have a peugeot 307 and the brakes have become very hard to press and feel like there is something under the pedal when you press down on the pedal.what could this be


It sounds like the booster is failing. That is the big round thing attached to the Brake master cylinder. This assists the brake pedal so u dont have to press hard. Try another car and press the brake without it running then start it and press it with it running it will feel softer when running. If yours feels like the car when it is not running it is probably the booster that needs replacing on your car. Good luck

Been having problem with brakes. I brake pad feels


Bleeding isnt going to help a hard pedal. If the pedal is mushy, and there is no air, the Master cylinder could be bad. If the pedal is HARD, there is no air. Press on the brake pedal several times with the engine off (5-6 times) now hold your foot on the pedal and start the engine, you should feel the pedal slightly give way under your foot. If you dont, and have a HARD pedal, the brake booster could be bad, but have professionals check it out before spending any money.
