Top 20 2004 Proton Gen-2 Questions & Answers

The pistons in the caliper should retract without much effort. A "C" clamp is usually all you need to do it. I suspect you have a seized caliper or possibly a kinked or crushed brake line (preventing the brake fluid from returning to the master cylinder when the piston is depressed) feeding that caliper - but isn't very likely.

If your car has automatic gears , and your problem as if it is going uphill then you obviously have a faulty automatic transmission box , this can be fixed by a competent mechanic but would be better to take it to an auto-mechanic, for a replacement gearbox or it may just be a missaligned gear selector in the gearbox, it will be expensive whatever the problem is ........unless the auto-mechanic is your best buddy..............................Sorry

It can only be a problem caused by a shortage, the wire activated by the brake as you apply the brakes is shorting ( touching) the other wires in the wiring loom, hopefully not too far down , unless you are competent and confident with a cars electrical circuit I would seriously suggest you get an auto electrician. B4 that Have a look and follow the brake pedal wire ( situated maybe on the floor of the car and activated as the brake pedal is pressed or on the pedal itself, )look for anywhere tge wire is bare ( without insulation ) then rectify and all should be OK , If you cannot see an easy fix get an auto electrician, get a call out , not a auto shop /garage he will be cheaper.

Inertia switch is only relevant when you have a collision and the engien does not start. Fuel pump may not run and coils no spark. If not, same thing could also happen if the immobilizer is not disabled or the key FOB gets damaged. The ignition key has an RFID chip in it and if you drop your key or remove this chip, the car will not recognize the key and wont start. You need to use your spare key from then on.

If it's auto, get it scanned for error codes before you do anything with the wires. The codes will guide your repair better.

P1070 is not a valid code in my books, but this is not a make sold in my country (USA) so it may be unique to this far east make of car.

It is an integrated model.The TPS is part of the motorized throttle body. If you have TPS error code. Clean the throttle body and reset it with a good scanner. If that does not work, you may have to replace it.

The ignition key holds a sort of RFID chip. If you open it to change remote control battery or you dropped it to pieces and the chip comes off, you will not be able to start your car. Get your spare key and use it to start. The key that cannot be used to start has to be replaced/reprogrammed.

you may have dropped the RFID chip inside the battery housing. That chip is used by the immobilizer to recognize the key. Get your spare key and use it to start. If you don't have one, you will need to get your key replaced and reprogrammed.

That shows the window motor and wiring are good leaving one of the switches. There should be battery and ground at both switch connectors check to make sure, check switches, find the battery terminal on the switch use a test light to check the other 2 terminals as you move the switch it should light in both directions, Now locate the ground wire it has to be the other (middle) wire by connecting the ground clip on the test light to the positive wire you just checked, then check the ground side of the switch the same way as the battery side. Think of a domino with 6 dots one middle dot is battery and the other middle dot is ground when the switch is moved the upper or lower outside dots get battery and ground at the same time when the switch is moved the other direction the other outside dots get the power and ground. I hope this helps. Take care.
