When changing pads and you push the caliper in for the new pad you should open the bleed screws. , then close and re-assemble. press pedal and open bleed screw and let it drip a little . gravity bleed. Did you turn the read caliper piston in and then press it down? The rear piston must be aligned with the pad. Did you pump the parking brake to reset?

1993 buick lesabre changed the front rotars and pads and now the cars brake pedal is so hard to push down to get car to stop. Mechanic has checked both the front and back brakes and they are fine. T


I would jack up a front wheel and see if pushing on the pedal with the engine running will stop the wheel from turning.
You need to know if the pressure is reaching the wheels, or if the pads and rotors are too slick to stop the car.
Usually if the pedal is hard, the booster is not working or the brakes are glazed.
Can you stop the car with the parking brake ? That only uses the rear brakes.
You may need a second opinion from a different shop.

My abs light on my 2000 buick lesabre will not shut off i have replaced rotors and pads what could the problem be


The warning light indicates that there is a malfuction in the anti-lock Brake System (ABS). Normally the system will then cease to function so you have a conventional braking system with no anti-lock feature to engage if you lock up the wheels on braking.

This ABS fault warning has nothing to do with the condition of the pads and rotors so renewing them, which is essential for good braking performance, will not solve the problem.

You will need to take the vehicle to a mechanic with the correct equipment to diagnose the cause of the ABS warning. It may be as simple as a failed ABS sensor (or sensors) and that is what I would be checking first.

It is quite safe to drive the vehicle with the ABS disengaged because your brakes will operate normally. What you don't have is the ABS kicking in to release the brake pressure temporarily in the event you brake hard and lock up any of the wheels.

The abs light on my 2000 buick lesabre will noy shut off we have changed brake rotors and pads what could the promblem be


The ABS system has nothing to do with replacing the pads and rotors, the abs is anti braking system the system is designed to keep the wheels from locking up when brakes are applied hard, . you will first need to have the abs computer scanned for codes, the computer will pick up a problem in the system and turn off the system and then turn the abs light on and last it stores a code in the computer, the code will tell you what part of the system has failed. the codes or code are very helpful in pinpointing the problem. the abs system contains speed sensors on all four wheel and a anti braking module and computer, the most common reason for a abs code is a bad wheel speed sensor. this is the most common problem seen, the code for example may read something like this poXXXXX right front speed sensors.again start by getting the codes,good day.

2004 Chevy Aveo The brake pedal pulsates and activates the ABS system when the brake is applied at low speeds


check rotor and brake pads. also check fluid level. one of those 3 causing problems.
more and likely its the rotor. its cheaper to buy new ones for around 20-30 dollars.
warped rotor will cause the pedal to ..pulsate. and more and likely you pads are wore.
when getting new rotor always put new shoes on so the rotor it can wear evenly.

My 2004 LeSabre shakes bad when I brake at around 50 mph. I changed the front brake pads. How difficult is it to change the front rotors?


Actually, changing the front rotors is not that difficult and they are relatively in-expensive. Anytime you change the pads on the front of your vehicle i would recommend having the rotors resurfaced or replaced. Especially if you are getting a brake pedal pulse when applying the brakes. Here is a step by step guide that will help you in removing your Front rotors.

2000 Buick LeSabre - the rotors were replaced at about 80,000 miles and since that time, rotors only last about 8-10,000 miles before they need turning or have to be replaced. The mechanics don't seem to...


Who else has been driving this car besides you? Most of the rotors that get slight warpage is due to drivers that drive fast and follow close. Excessive braking and making quick stops then holding you foot down heavly on the pedal at stops will warp the rotors. They get red hot and when you press red hot metal it will give.The calipers are pressing the metal every time you stop. Excessive pressure on the pads while foot is off of the pedal may be due to the front brake hoses as the inner core will collapse and will keep pressure on the caliper. I have seen this a lot on gm trucks.

I have a 2000 blazer and my brakes quit working right so he changed the ABS unit and its still doing the same thing the brakes give out if i hold the brake for to long how can we fix this?


if it fades out not an abs problem pads and rotor may be glazed over [polished from riding brake] check pads and rotor if slippery polished over cut rotor/and replace pads ---if at low speed--almost stopping and getting an abs activation then one of the sensors is dirty or corroded and needs to be replaced low speed activation usually doesnt set off check engine light

2004 GMC sierra 1500 4x4 brakes


Have you checked the hardware on the disc brakes all the way around, as well as checking the rear pads? Wore out hardware could cause you to require more pressure to get the pads to move, as well as low brakes on the rear. Your braking system sends more pressure to the front of the vehicle because it requires more pressure up there. Less pressure on the rear can cause this to happen. I'm willing to bet the problem from the pedal is coming from the rear brakes somewhere and not the front. The last possibility that I can think if is a problem in the ABS solonoids, they might not be opening up all the way causing you to require more pressure.
