When i press the brake pedal on my 2003 chevy tahoe there is a loud whooshing sound, what is causeing this?

maybe the vacuum booster behind the master cylinder. is the vacuum hose hooked up to it?? it could be leaking internally. you need a vacuum pump to test it though.

When I press the brake pedal it's real hard and there's a loud whussing sound but the pedal doesn't go down

You power brake vacuum booster is bad , that would be my first thought . What make vehicle do you have ? Under the hood in the engine compartment behind the brake master cylinder is a round metal object , this is the brake booster ! The rubber diaphragm inside is bad ! The whooshing sound is vacuum leaking out of the diaphragm !

How do I replace a brake booster on a 1998 Buick LeSabre? Brakes hold but make a whooshing when applied.

May not be the booster as some do make a noise when the brakes are applied. To test press the brakes several times with engine off, Press the pedal down hard and start the engine , the pedal should move down slightly and there should be no whooshing sound . if the above is ok so is the booster.

Brake lights dont work 04 dakota. new fuse new switch ,new lights. check all thewires ok. what else can you check

Hi Hamlyn Sounds as if you forgot the brake light switch, try that. Make sure power is going in (by using a test light ) and Make sure it comes out when the brake pedal is depressed. Regards Johngee10

2004 dodge dakota. brake lights not working but bulb is good. taillights and turn signals are working. Is there a mechanical switch by the brake pedal to look for??

there is a switch above the brake pedal that turns the brake lights on when u depress the pedal, use a volt meter set to DC volts and check for voltage to the switch and out of it when the brake pedal is depressed, see p[icture of switch belowe364f34.jpg

Brake lights do not work on my 94 Dodge Dakota. All other light do work, and these are all on the same bulb. I was told it might be the brake light switch by the brake pedal, but I can't find it. Is there...

It does sound like the brake light switch has failed. The switch is located on the brake pedal bracket. I have enclosed two pics for your use.1994%20dakota%20bl%20switch.jpg

I hope this helps!

My 98 dakota tail lights are not working what could it be??

Assuming you checked the fuses and bulbs.....check the brake pedal switch just up from the footpedal itself. Make sure the adjuster hasnt slipped up and is no longger connecting to the pedal which makes the lights come on. Be sure your bulbs are good and check the fuses with a continuity tester. Some fuses can look good and be bad. If none of this works check for voltage at the bulbs and work your way back toward the cab. You may have a cut wire.
