My 1994 isuzu 250 brake went hard i replaced the pipes new booster new altenator with pump now brakes is better but when i am in traffic stop go after while no brakes please hel

no country stated, no car stated.
no engine stated, petrol or diesel.
below is my wild and useless guess ,its petrol.
Power assist brakes work off a base of manual brakes.
my wild guess 2 is KB truck, in Africa

this next line means with booster off line
(hose plugged, and pulled)
do the base manual brakes work or not.??????????????
this is first. and a big safety issue.
is this hard to understand.?
is this your first brake job?
how the manuals work 101:
using up to 100 lbs of (man) force on the brake pedal; can get you 600 psi force at the rear of the mc, (and 4 time more at front calipers)
the pedal is 6:1 ratio, (approx)
the MC piston to the slaves (ratio) the front caliper pistons are huge (4:1), and 6x4=24:1 total . 24x100 is 2400 lbs, from you foot to pads.
the cars stops great like this.
assist only lighten the pedal load, needed.
allows 50 lb girl to drive car, or my pet chimp.
or old skinny grand ma , to church...

these facts are why the brakes still work in manual mode.
The stopping distance does not decrease with boost.
(granny excepted) one could call this granny assist.
see, in a shop full of men we can stop the car
fast and same low distance.
my guess is your post is about assist only.
not brakes dragging
not braKES WEAK.

assist is a whole other set of issues, if only assist fails....see?578fb15a-cb47-464a-8d9a-701f0cf1da4e.jpg

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...

Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

Why does brake light come one intermittently even

The brake light sensor in the brake fluid reservoir is most likely stuck,use your finger and push it down in the reservoir,and let it pop back up,and see if this will solve the problem.

the first thing to look at is the brake booster, this is what make the pedal easy to push,make sure its getting vacuum,if there plenty of vacuum then i would say the booster is bad, the booster is where the master cylinder bolt too.heres a picture of it, hope this helps.aba0fab.jpg

Does this model brakes front and rear at the same time when we press just front break ?

no have a rear brake pedal to control the rear brake and the front is controlled by a brake lever which supplies 3/4 of all stopping power. Dont ever slam down on the rear brake pedal just apply it gradually.

E brake comes on

Tom, not sure on your particular model, but on most cars the e-brake light on the dash is turned on and off buy a switch in the bottom of the grove for lack of better term, were the e-brake lever sits. It is shut off when the lever is pushed back down. If you havent used it latley, some one may have pulled it up just enough to be almost completly off, but not quite. First try pushing it down all the way. If this dosn't stop it, you may have to pull lever all the way up to see if the switch is loose or other trouble with it.Worse comes to worse unplug it, but rember that you can end up driving around with the e-brake set and burn up your rear brakes.

It sounds like the parking brake return spring has broken or come loose. The only way to know is to pull the wheel and drum and take a look. It sounds like the pads are still closed against the drum and haven't released. Hope this helps.

How to push back the piston in the rear brake caliper of Focus LX 2ltr 2003

There is actually a special tool for pushing the piston back, you could try and put some force on the piston but at the same time you have to turn the piston because the hand brake works of there aswell and there is some thread inside that keeps on adjusting the caliper piston as the pads waer down.
Take special care not to damage the calliper rubbers when turning the piston
