Sounds like the brake pedal is not coming up far enough from the floor after being pressed thus causing the switch to remain activated even though pressure is not applied to the brake at the time.

How do i know if the master cylender is bad


You run a line clamp test. All you need is 4 clamp tools to block off all brake hoses with light pressure. Push on brake peddle if it's hard back off and push slow and light. If stays hard master cylinder is good. Hold pressure and have someone remove. The clamps

Cant shift out of park by pushing brake peddle


Look under the dash and in the back of the Brake pedal. There is a switch which sometimes gets hit by your foot. This is the Interlock switch and it may be broken or moved out of position. If you can see whether the Brake lights are working or have a helper look at the Brake lights you can verify the problem.

Using your hand to work the switch will help you position it to work properly again. If you can't get the Brake lights to work check under the hood at the Master cylinder. There can be a hydraulic switch off the Master. Check for corrosion on the plug-in.

That sounds like a faulty brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever under the dash, or a damaged wire at the wire connector to the brake light switch. Here are some images of what the brake light switch looks like to help assist you.

Soft brake peddle on 1994 chevy 3/4ton truck is it the back adjuster?


You might have a leak in one of your brake lines i would look at all of the lines for a leak look at the brake drums for fluid driping out of the bottom if you dont find a leak it may be time for a brake job . a soft peddel means you have air in your system.From a leak or wore out pads or shoes or a leaking wheel cylender from wore out rear shoes . watch your master cylender to see if its low on fluid.

When push brakes you have to push really hard to make them go in then the truck barely stops. Replaced the MC and bled the brakes now every time push brakes truck acts like its going to die. Brake light...


Sounds like you will have to bleed your brakes again, but thats not the problem og hard brake peddle, need to check your power brake booster, sit right in back of master cylinder, check make sure it has vacum going to it, also to test it with engine off, press on brake peddle three time, then state engine with foot on peddle, peddle should go down a few inches, also with engine of peddle should feel soft for three pumps, if you have none of this , power brake booster is bad.

Cruise control does not work


Replace the Brake light control switch located in front of the brake peddle under the dash this also turns the cruise off when braking. While driving put your foot behind the brake peddle and pull back toward you while doing this try your cruise if it works there are three possible causes or a combination of all three. Brake control Switch, Loose or sloppy brake pedal not activating the Brake switch properly or week brake pedal return spring. Good Luck.
