1990 Isuzu pickup turns off at stop sign


If this is a petrol engine have a look at the brake booster leaking vacuum and running the engine too lean to idle. Test by allowing to idle with out your foot on the brake If applying brake pressure shuts the engine down ,replace the brake booster..

by releasing the park brake you are in fact putting air in the park brake (spring brake diaphragms) that compresses the springs and allows the brakes to release. When you apply the park brake you are in effect dumping the air out of the system and allowing the spring brakes to come on. The light is telling you that there is insufficient air in the park brake circuit to fully release the spring brakes. Some ideas are that the air lines on the trailer are opposite to the prime mover(tractor), there is a kink in the air lines in the trailer , the air tank that holds emergency air for the spring brakes system has an internal leak in a valve between chambers or externally between air tanks. I would make very sure that I fixed this problem before I travelled as the consequences of a trailer wheel lock up at speed could have very serious results.

When I apply brakes I get a severe vibration in whole pickup


I would say your problem is still possibly brake related because of your experience with clamping the rear lines. You have changed everything out in the system except the Master Cylinder and the actual brake lines. Never heard of Master Cylinder causing symptoms you describe, but I am only a shade tree mechanic. My only other suggestion would be to verify your rear tires are properly balanced. There is very little weight in the rear of a pickup and unbalanced tire(s) would exhibit the symptom in any car, but most especially in the rear of an unloaded truck. This is a tough one! Keep us posted on your progress in getting this one fixed.

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited i have brake lights that work when i apply brakes, but as as soon as i turn my headlights on the fuse blows and i have no working tailights with the headlights on. ...


There is definitely a short in the park lights system. Did you just have a radio installed....since the illumination wire sometimes gets grounded and will cause that fuse to blow until you fix that wire.

that's day time running lights, your high beams are on when ever your ignition is on and headlights are turned off. If you apply the parking brake it turns off the running lights and the light on the dash goes off, if the parking brake is depressed just to the first racket click the lights will be off.

1994 GMC pickup front brakes are sticking. Replaced brake pads, rotors and calipers. What next?


By "sticking" I am assuming that you mean that the brakes are staying applied (calipers are not releasing)and burning the brake pads and rotors up.

The most common cause of this is brake hoses.

The hoses that connect your calipers to the steel brake lines have an inner lining and a reinforced outer "shell". sometimes the inner lining tears loose from the outer shell inside the hose. (It cannot be seen by "looking" at the hose.) The inner lining then starts to act similar to a "heart valve" where it allows fluid to be pushed down into the caliper, then collapses inside the hose, blocking the fluid from returning to the master cylinder when the pedal is released. This can happen just because of the age of the hose, but is more commonly caused by someone allowing the caliper to hang by the hose while replacing the brake pads without using anything to support the weight of the caliper.

To diagnose this condition, raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheels. Make sure that the transmission is in "Park" (Automatic Transmission) or "Neutral" (Manual Transmission) and apply the parking brake. Then start the engine and apply the service brake. (Press HARD on the pedal) Shut the engine off, release the service brake and open the bleeder screws on the calipers. If brake fluid squirts out of the bleeder screw under pressure, then the hoses are the cause of the calipers not releasing.
