How to unstick brake light on 2008 yamaha

Hi The back brake light is on, right. You need to check two things: 1 there is a spring and switch connected to the rear brake pedal. Just kneel down and look at the pedal and follow the linkage back to the rear brake mechanism. Somewhere there should be a connection (spring or wire) that goes to a switch. When you push the brake pedal down the spring or wire pulls a piece inside the switch that makes two contacts in the switch complete a connection that turns the brake light on. This switch must be free and working properly and not sticking as well. It also needs to be properly adjusted so that it will turn off and on at the right times. Most of the time this switch gives the problem.
2 Newer bikes have a switch on the front brake as well. Use the same theory and test procedure to test and fix. If it is a hydraulic clutch (they use brake fluid) there could be a Hydraulic activated switch, make sure it is working properly and not sticking.
If the rear brake is Hydraulic there could be a mechanical switch or a hydraulic switch used. Sorry for the long answer. I hope this helps. Rod

Rear brake problems

"pedal all the way down, no movement of caliper"
Sounds like hydraulic problem.

Check if you have enough brake fluid.

If so, it could be a bad master cylinder.
Rear brake light switch won't work without hydraulic pressure (which also works the caliper), while front brake light switch is mechanical.

almost sure if you can release the hydraulic pressue slightly and push on it ,it will come down this would only be a short term solution if you activate it again the same problem may occur.

My 1993 Ford Mustang convertible won't go up.But the motor is coming on.Also it will go down thou

There must be a hydraulic fluid leak somewhere. Check to see if there is oil filler cap on your hydraulic pump located in the trunk compartment. Fill if necessary with just enough fluid to raise the top. The reason it won't go up is cause it is lacking pressure from the low fluid

1998 T/C rear goes down while car is parked. There is an odor similar to hydraulic fluid. When car starts, compressor runs and rear levels; stays level until motor turned off.

More than likely your rear shock(s) have leaks that cause the compressor to reinflate. A possible explanation for the inflation to only occur while the engine is on is so the battery won't be drained during down time. Probably a protective feature. As for the hydraulic smell, check for signs of leakage under the hood and under the car. Also check your engine coolant for possible leaks.

19886 saab 900 convertible roof not working.

Hi David:

First, check the fuses for the hydraulic motor; if they're blown, replace and monitor (why did they blow? Perhaps an overload, or ...) These fuses are located in the engine bay on top of the fender by the front right wheel housing.

Next check the voltage supply to the top switch, possibly a loose connection or broken wire.

Also check relays C (raising top) and D (lowering top) under the rear seat.

Lastly check for voltage at the pump, also under the rear seat, when the switch is actuated, and that the voltage polarity reverses when the switch is actuated the other way (up or down).

After that, it's a hydraulic/mechanical problem. Check the fluid level in the pump reservoir (use SAAB fluid to top up if low) Fluid level should be at the upper marker with top down, and at the lower marker with top up.

Check behind the rear seat side panels that the piston shaft is still properly attached to the roof mechanism bracket at one end, and the piston itself is still firmly attached to the body. Look for any leakage from the system.

If all tests out OK and looks good under the rear seat and behind the side panels, then there is the possibility that the piston seals have failed and the fluid is just circulating around without activating the piston. Pistons are available ( - scroll down) but the entire system should be removed to avoid getting hydraulic fluid on the interior.

However, that fact that you can operate the hood using the bypass valve (manually) would indicate that the hydraulics are likely OK, and that it's probably an electrical or mechanical problem.

Good luck!
