SOURCE: Brake pedal won't return.

There could be a couple reasons for this. First thing to check is your return spring, is it still there and attached properly? Next thing to check is your master cylinder pressure release. Loosen the bleed nipple on the rear caliper. Does the brake release now? If so, your master cylinder has some debris clogging the fluid return passageway. Remove and clean it. If the brake still does not release after opening the bleed nipple, at least one of your caliper pistons is binding. Remove the rear caliper and the brake pads. Now press the pedal and force the pistons out. Looses the bleed nipple and attempt to press the pistons back into place. They should move smoothly when you apply firm pressure. Clean the caliper thoroughly. If you have a rebuild kit for the caliper this is a good time to rebuild it. After cleaning, put it back together, bleed the brakes and test again. It is normal for disk brakes to drag SLIGHTLY on the rotor, but they should not stop a free spinning wheel in less than a coupld revolutions when spun by hand.

SOURCE: kawasaki kx85 04 rear brake not working

Depending upon the braking system,you need to service it accordingly.I assume it is 85cc engine and it will have a drum disk.You need to remove the tyre and check the pads,if the pads are fine then give it a good high pressure air to blow away all the dust inside.Then put back things tohether and adjust brake to stop the pedal from going too much down accordingly.Make sure all bolts are secured,align wheel and check chain tension when assembling.Hope this help.

When applying the brakes on my vespa px the lights go out and the rear brake light doesn't work

That would indicate that you have a short to ground in the circuit, so that when you apply the brakes, you ground the system and the lights cut off. Check all of the wiring carefully, especially at the brake lever and make sure that when you move the lever, no wires are caught or moving.

What will make the brake light not work from the foot pedal but does work from the hand lever and the back running lights don't work but the turn signals do on a 2006 1200 sportster

Most cars have a switch mounted to the brake pedal assembly and when you press the brake pedal down it pushes on the switch and completes the circuit for the brake lights. The parking brake has a different switch and circuit. Get a Haynes manual for your car it should have the location of the brake switch and how to test it. Good luck

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4.3 The brake lights and turn signals don't work.... HELP

Sounds like you have a bad multiple function turn signal switch. A couple things to try With your foot pressing on the brake pedal, Press the four way flasher button up and down, press and hold it down, pull up on it, or wiggle it. If the brake lights come on during any one of those replace the switch. With the key in the run position pull, push, the turn signal lever slightly. If the turn signal or brake lights start to work replace the switch. Let me know if none of those work, they usually do, and I'll get you some more in depth diagnostic info.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Brake light stays on with beeping sound

Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

The brake pedal switch on a 2001 VW Beetle is placed above pedals on the support.

1. Remove the cover panel above the driver's side foot well...


2. Locate old switch, push in brake pedal, and twist switch body to remove...

3. Unplug 4 pin connector from old switch and plug into new switch (it only goes one way...don't force it!). Insert new switch into frame and depress brake petal. You should turn it until it locks into place and is positioned like the original.
4. Start Bug. Press the brake pedal once or twice and the EPC light should go out ...

5. If it looks like that... great! Replace the cover over the foot well and you are done! If not, check the 4 pin connection and make sure it is fully seated in the switch. Also check to see if you can hear the switch engage when you press the brake pedal ... if not, you will need to remove the switch and adjust the push rod. The rod will move in and out for adjustment. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal as well!

Why wont my brake light turn off... they are on all the time

You most likely have a faulty stop light switch. I have provided you with a couple of pictures. The first one in black and white is where you will find the switch and the second one is a picture of what your switch should look like but may not be what is in the car but you will get the idea. What happens is when you press the brake pedal a little button on the switch opens and when it opens it completes an electrical circuit and turns the brake lights on. when you let off the brake pedal the pedal comes back up and pushes that button back in to close the circuit. it is most likeley stuck open and not pushing back in when the pedal goes back up. When you see it you will understand better. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Brake lights come on and stay on when started.Recently replaced left brake light bulb

It sounds like the brake switch on the brake pedal arm is stuck its like a push button type switch when you press the brake pedal down it pushes the button in on the switch which makes the brake lights come on,when you take your foot off the brake pedal the button is supposed to come back out if it doesn't the brake lights will stay on.

Electric start on vespa px does not work

Could be a deficient battery, malfunctioning solenoid, starter is burnt, starter switch, or brake light switch, as these are necessary. If your brake light is not working, that's it. I need more information.
