Brake light wont turn off

Front brake light switch.
Sometimes, the plunger gets gummed up, and won't spring back out. You might try cleaning with some electrical contact cleaner (Radio Shack)
Other times, the proper procedure wasn't followed when installing the front master cylinder, breaking off the "nub" on the switch that works off the brake lever. If so, $17 part and some soldering.
Either problem will cause the brake light not to turn off.

Had new front brakes done and rotors discs brake pads and it smells like its burning rubber after driving 5 miles back brakes lock up and need to repair as to brake lights are on is this normal or wher the...

the work should be rechecked to make sure nothing is siezed and check the rear brakes to see what is causing them to lock up.if the smell is coming from the front then you could have a caliper that has siezed after the brakes were replaced.this does happen from time to time and there is not a usual way to know before they sieze until its driven unless when pushing the pistons back you notice they are hard to push back.

I have a 2003 pt cruiser and my brakes keep screaming, my dad checked both the back and front brake pads/drums but said that they were fine but would soon need to change the front pads. he also said that...

Screaming brakes dont mean the fluid is low, the brakes squeaking is due to vibration of the pads and calipers, the brakes could be fine and still squeak, in order to rid the noise you would need to remove the pads and replace the pad hardware clips and then apply some anti squeal to backside of the pads,this helps almost always but some cars the pads are so glazed that they need replacing and rotors machined or replaced, if your dad said they were good for now then its safe. if the noise is something you wish to get rid of then follow the above instructions. good day.

No brakes at rear wheel of my 2005 standard goldwing. Had a new rear tire(screw/nail) put on and the service man told me.I normally slow down slow enough to use front brakes.I had installed full foot...

Try putting the bike on the center stand and get the front wheel off the ground with a floor jack. Spin the front wheel by hand and press on the rear brake pedal. The front wheel should stop. Likewise with the bike on the center stand and the rear wheel off the ground you should be able to lock the rear wheel with the foot pedal. On many Goldwings the rear pedal also operates one front disc. This is for people that refuse to use there front brakes to stop or slow there bike (80% to 90% of your stopping power is the front brake). Try bleeding the entire system front and back, you may just have air in the system. If the rear brake still does not work you may have a bad delay valve in the system. If you need to take the bike in to a shop, try to find a mechanic that is familiar with the system so they do not replace parts unnecessarily. That way you minimize your shop time and maximize your riding time.

Picked up vibration an its not coming from motor mounts feels like in the balancing part but i am not up to par on twin cam motors an not sure where this takes place

According to what this webpage is showing, you are talking about a 2000 FLSTC Softail. If this is correct, your bike has the TC88B motor in it. The "B" motor is a counterbalanced engine put in the Softail only.

It has two counterbalance weights in the engine, one at the front of the crankcase just below and in front of the front cylinder and one back where the transmission bolts to the engine. They are driven by a small single row chain and must be timed with the crankshaft. Sounds like the balancers have gotten out of time or quit altogether. I don't have much experience on the Twin Cam engines. I mostly work on the old Harleys like Panheads, Shovelheads, and Evos. But I do know the TC88B engine is a counterbalanced engine. Good Luck.

Truck shakes severely when on the brakes

Your front brake rotors are warped. Remove them, see if they are turnable. (Metal brake lathe at auto repair shop, or auto machine shop)

The rotors have a minimum thickness. You cannot lathe them any thinner than this minimum thickness, or your safety will be at risk. (A reputable shop wouldn't even begin to ->Think about turning a rotor undersize. If they do this, and you are hurt, or killed, or someone else, they are liable!)

Your front brake rotors are like the shape of a thick disk, right? You have brake pads on both sides of this disk.

If the rotor is warped, you will have a thick edge on one side, and a thinner edge on the other side. (You're viewing the rotor from the edge)
As you apply your brakes the brake pads they squeeze against the rotor. They squeeze against the thinner edge, then suddenly the thick edge comes around.
This makes you brakes grab momentarily, then as the thin edge comes back around, the brakes let go.

Grab, let go, grab, let go. This is the teeth chattering stop effect, that occurs.

If the rotors can be turned, fine. If not, they will have to be replaced with new ones.

One more thing. As time goes by, this chattering effect when you are stopping, has put severe wear on your front end parts. You may have a bunch of front end parts that are badly worn. This is why it's imperative to have this problem fixed as soon as possible.

There is also the safety issue. What if you can't stop in time in an emergency situation? Either your life, and/or someone else's may be endangered.

Too much play on front brake, 2002 road king

Its not your pads min thickness is have air in the lines or a loose fitting. You really need a vacmum suction device to bleed harley brakes not the old auto turn the nut pump the valve routine. Take it to a shop and have it done will only take about 15 min. Maybe someone prior to you mixed dot 4 and dot 5 maybe it fluid just needs to be replaced. but its not your pads the brake fluid makes up for the pad thickness.
