SOURCE: Emergency brake light

Dear Customer,

Check this,

1
derive your car on 5 to 10mph than take it into nutral gear,
than let the car slow down Slowly automaticaly WITHOUT using brakes not even any brakes,when its stops you have to judge that is your car stops with some jurk or some strokes.

IF NOT THAN YOUR your car have finetunniing of brakes & if have some jurk than you have to adjust your car brake system

2
than check your tail lights indicating your brakes & simultaneously works with emergency also,

3
dont worry its not a major problem cause its happens sometimes when your car had run a long time without any service,

so test all thsiat your garage or you can at branded service center having certified mechanics,

THNX

SOURCE: front brakes heat up and

Chanses are its the calipers that are bad, and the break hoses going from the hard line to the caliper are too, (one or the other) i've had both problems on my wifes durango, changed both calipers twice and last time replaced both break hoses, i have also done the same thing to a friends sebring with the same problem, seams to have cured the breaking problems on both. Best thing to do is replace both calipers and both break hoses, i think it will solve your break issue.

I have a 2001 harley-davidson nighttrain FXSTB, the brake light won't work from the front lever . but there is power going in and out of switch


Hi, Peter before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

Stiff brake pedal and engine not unning smoothly


Sounds like you locked up a Caliber on the passenger side? Any pulling to passenger side or after driving for 2 to 3 min's feel the Center of the steel tim where the Lug nuts are on both drivers front and passenger front wheel both should be cool to warm if 1 is hotter then the other you have a stuck brake.

I towed it home and i looked under the hood and there was oil from valve cover gasket. i let the car sit for a few days, had it running again for a good hour and no white smoke was coming out. I removed the valve cover and gaskets are all bad. i want to know can the valve cover gasket leak cause the white smoke to come from exhaust pipe?

Breaks


Is the anti-lock brake light on (if you have ABS)? If so, that needs diagnosing by a good shop.
If you don't have it, or if the light is not on, you need to pull the wheel off and investigate. Is this the front brakes or the rear? If it's the rear, your emergency brake might be too tight, and needs adjustment. If it's the front brakes, you may have a caliper siezed up, and not retracting-the caliper is what pushes the brake pads against the rotor for braking. Spin or turn the wheel around (with car in neutral). The brake pads should be just enough away from the rotor to allow free turning. If it's tight you probably need the caliper replaced or repaired.
Thanks for using FixYa, and good luck.

A light came on my dash of an exclamation mark with a circle and brackets around it but only came on dull, not really bright. What does that mean? And can I damage anything by driving it? Thank you


That sounds a lot like a brake warning light. Check your brake fluid. Take it for a SLOW drive, and see if the brake pedal feels unusual at all (spongy, soft). Wind your windows down, turn off the radio, and listen for any unusual noises, like grating or screeching.

If your brakes fail, then yes, you can damage something by driving it- Starting is optional, stopping is mandatory.

Your handbrake doesn't run on any hydraulic systems, so if they fail, in an emergency, you can use the handbrake. Apply it slowly- pulling it up hard will most likely cause your brakes to lock- but you'll need to use a fair bit of force... Without getting into physics, your back brakes don't work anywhere near as well as your front brakes do.

the abs light on the dash should come on when the abs is working (emergency braking)if it comes on when braking normally(gently)chances are a sensor is gone(replace in pairs,fronts & rears)

Brakes


sounds like your abs feature is in-operative(that's the one that won't allow the wheels to lock-up when the brake is applied in an emergency)the abs system should pulse your brakes during an emergency application of pressure on the pedal,i'd get to a dealer immediately (and i mean don't go anywhere else until this problem is corrected)
