Rear passenger brake dosen't work

Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

Rear caliper on 2005 Ford F150 not releasing, replaced both rear calipers, now pedal goes to the floor - no brakes at all. What can/should i do?

Sounds like it still has some air in the system or a bad master cylinder. First try bleeding all air, there is definitely some air left in the lines and this is most probably causing the problem. Bled the lines at the bleeder screws on the calipers. ---------- There is air left in the brake line.Any time the brake system is opened to replace brake lines, caliper, pads etc etc.Mostly the air enters the system, and that air has to be completely bleed.Otherwise the same symptoms , what you are getting will be noticed.-------- Brakes can be bled manually, with a power bleeder, injector tool or vacuum bleeder.IIt does not make any difference which method you use as long as all the lines and components are flushed with enough fluid to remove any trapped air bubbles or air pockets.----
The most common bleeding procedure is to bleed the brake furthest from the master cylinder first, then bleed the other brake that shares the same hydraulic circuit (which may be the other rear brake on a rear-wheel drive car or truck, or the opposite front brake on a front-wheel drive car or minivan). After these have been bled, you then bleed the other brake circuit starting with the furthest brake from the master cylinder.--------- When the complete air is bleed from the line, the brake should be firm when car is on.In your case brake brake pedal is loose and goes almost to the floor when car is ON.This is due to Air in the line.Get the complete air bleed from brake line.------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech

Put front brakes on hj kingswood bleed brake line .now brake peddle wont work

you need to bleed the brakes,starting from the wheel that's the fartherest away from your master cylinder. if you opened a bleeder valve when you replaced the front brakes,you've let air into the whole brake will need 2 people to bleed the air out of the brakes.1to pump the pedal up for pressure and you to release the pressure of air from the bleeder valves on each wheel.start from the wheel that's the fartherest away from the brake master cylinder. passenger rear wheel.have someone pump the brake pedal up [pump3times]and hold pressure on the brake pedal,you open bleeder valve on the wheel to let the air out,or until the brake pedal goes to the floorboard[never let the person who is pumping the brake pedal to take the pressure off the brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder valve closed.or else,you're waisting your time. you may have to bleed each wheel twice,or until you see clear brake fluid come out with no bubbles or spurting from each wheel. after you're done with passenger rear wheel,move to driverside rear wheel,then go to passenger front,then drivers front,which is last.when you replaced the brakes,you made a common mistake,you opened the brake lines,which let air into the brake's a very common mistake so don't feel bad.just go back and bleed the brake system.after you do this,you will not make the same mistake again,i guarantee it. thank you for choosing and if you need further assistance,please repost your question to i'm usually here at least 12 hours a day to assist people for free.that's just me thanks!

If I remove a break line from one caliper for replacement, do I need to bleed the breaks on all four wheels or only the one that I have replaced the break line on?

When replacing any brake components it's always a great idea to bleed the brakes. Because your life depends on the serviceability of your brake system. When you open, crack or brake any line in your brake system, you automaticity introduce air into the system. Air can be compressed easily as opposed to brake fluid, which is designed not to compress as well as resist heat. The air in your system will cause your ABS and sensors to malfunction and or not work at all. When bleeding your brake system use this sequence start with: 1)right rear, 2)left rear, 3)front right, 4)front left. All vehicle parts and locations are referred to as the vehicle's left and right sides. Or as your setting in the drivers seat. Hope that helps.

Replaced L/F caliper and rear brake line feeding rear brakes. Scanner will not recognize ABS system. Need to bleed brakes and cannot do it manually. 1996 Chevrolet 3500 series/ diesel/ 2wd.

if air has gotten in the abs unit you will need a scanner capable of running pump to bleed out. for starters do a gravity bleed by opening bleeder at caliper to get most air out of system keep it open until fluid drips out and do same at rear. be sure resevoir stays full.

I replaced a brake line on my 1993 olds 98 and the brakes still don't work

Did you bleed the line for air? If the break line was by the master cilinder, got to bleed all 4 tires, otherwise, got to bleed the two front or two rear tires.

If you step on the brake and feels spongy, is probably air in the lines, if it feels hard check master cilinder, if you hear an air leak, check brake booster.

1998 Durango, replaced brake line that was rusted in two, (was long line under drivers side to rear) bled all four brakes, abs and brake light are now on and will not go off. Have read it could be rear...

Dear Brake Line....
I read your paragraph and if this brake light was never on previously to the brake line repair....then all it sounds like to me is that you have air enclosed in the braking system still. I would strongly advise that you bleed the braking system again....also bleed the master cylinder if you replaced a line of the master cylinder make this easier on you your local auto parts store makes what they call one man bleeders that you can buy then install to bleed the system then remove and replace with regular brake bleeders.....just do a quick double check also to make sure that the line you replaced doesn't have any brake fluid leaking out also...any questions get back to me.....HOPE I COULD HELP!!!!
