1998 Chev Blaz 4wd 43L; crazy electric - the doors lock-unlock themselves with the vehicle off and keys out of ign I apply brakes -dash lights dim and dome lght comes on Bat and alt are ok any ideas?
sounds like an earth problem to me, check and clean all your earth points though i suspect its more of an earth failure
The 1997 Chevrolet Silverado rear brakes should automatically adjust themselves. Every time you back the vehicle up and hit the brakes the brakes adjust.
As the brakes are applied in an electric vehicle, the motor is used in reverse (I.E. an electric generator) to recharge the battery from the kinetic energy of the vehicle. The greater the load on the generator, the greater the emf force which opposes the generators turning.
You would adjust the brakes on a vehicle with abs brakes the same way you would adjust the brakes on a vehicle without abs brakes.
No, the 2003 Camry does not have disc brakes on the rear of the vehicle.
This is the maximum amount of weight a vehicle can tow, if what being towed has brakes. A towed vehicle with brakes (electronic brakes) responds to the same braking that the vehicle doing the towing has. If the vehicle being towed does not have brakes, the maximum towing capacity is much less.
Yes. However, the truck must be wired for a trailer equipped with electric brakes.
The front brakes on any vehicle do most of the stopping. When you apply the brakes the weight shifts to the front of the vehicle. For this reason the front brakes are needed more than the rear. Try stopping a vehicle with just the hand brake which applies only the rear brakes.
To install electric brakes, first remove the wheel. Then remove the dust cap, nut, and washer; this will be the place where you install the electric brakes.
Yes, that is the purpose of brakes.
Disc brakes stop a vehicle more efficiently than drum brakes.
Yes, unless the vehicle has functioning ABS (antilock brake system) brakes.
Be pointless. The point of anti-lock brakes it to effectively "pump" the brakes for you.
The presence or absence of air brakes does not determine whether or not that vehicle requires a CDL to be driven.
Yes, the parking brakes can be used to stop the vehicle in emergency. But remember that, in most of the vehicles parking brakes apply only to one pair of wheels, so if the vehicle is in high speed, one has to apply them carefully and save the vehicle from skidding.
They employ friction to slow or stop the vehicle.
How often brakes should be changed depends on the type of brakes in the vehicle and the use of the bakes in the vehicle. However, the general rule is every 10,000 miles.
No need to pump the brakes if you have functioning ABS.
Tap your brakes lightly to warn the vehicle

No such thing. There is no air brake endorsement. If you do not complete and pass the written test AND perform your road test in a vehicle equipped with air brakes, then you get a restriction on your license which prohibits you from operating a vehicle or combination which requires a CDL and is equipped with air brakes. So, if you were operating a 33k GVW RV with air brakes for private use, you could… Read More
NO... Car and truck brakes are different in size.
If the total weight rating of the combination (power and trailer) is over 26,000 lbs., and it's not a vehicle under exemption for CDL requirements, then yes.
Brakes on bicycles does the same thing as on almost any vehicle. They slow the vehicle down by creating friction between a moving part and a stationary part.
On any vehicle used in traffic the brakes are important. W/o brakes, controlling the vehicle gets much more difficult, if not outright impossible. And with poor control you get a much higher risk of accidents.
Yes they do, and they feel about the same to the operator of the vehicle.
If your vehicle has abs brakes, just apply the brakes hard and steer away from danger. If the vehicle does not have abs brakes, try to apply the brakes without locking up the wheels and going into a skid then steer away from danger. If you lock up the brakes and go into a skid you will lose control of your steering.
check wiring on your plug make sure the wire on your truck that has power when you press the brakes is connected to the wire for the brakes on the trailer Remember you must have a brake controller installed in the vehicle, just because the vehicle has a "tow package" does not necessarily mean you are ready to tow a trailer with electric brakes. The only vehicles that currently have this capability are the late… Read More
The brakes are designed to stop a vehicle under a load. In addition, the bobtail has two sets of brakes less than a vehicle with a trailer in tow.
Maybe, that would depend on the vehicle and if the rim would clear the brakes. Maybe, that would depend on the vehicle and if the rim would clear the brakes.
When you have the vehicle serviced and safety checked the mechanic will advise you when the brakes are in need of repair.
Steady application of the brakes. You do not pump the brakes on an ABS fitted vehicle.
No. Air brakes are not a parameter in determining whether or not a vehicle needs a CDL.
The driver would need to step on the brake pedal when braking a vehicle equipped with anti-lock brakes. FYI, the driver would also need to step on the brake pedal when braking a vehicle that is NOT equipped with anti-lock brakes. Hope this helps.
What component of the brake system provide a means to adjust the brakes to compensate for the wear of the brakes linings?
Disk brakes adjust themselves as they wear. Drum brakes have an automatic adjustment built into the brake system. When you back up and stop they automatically adjust themselves. If you remove the drum you will see the adjustment mechanism.
You can if you want, But you don't have to. It does not matter.
Normally brakes on a vehicle.
in terms of brakes and most everything else in auto mechanics, leading is the part towards the front of the vehicle and trailing is towards the rear of the vehicle
1. Put the engine in a lower gear and leave the clutch slowly. Vehicle will stop with a jerk. 2. Use parking brakes
becasuse its a rear wheel drive vehicle
Parking brakes apply generally on rear wheels to control enough sliding of the vehicle.
The presence or absence of air brakes has no impact on whether or not that vehicle requires a CDL.
Good luck trying to get such an endorsement, because such a thing does not exist on US licenses. The answer is no. Someone who holds a CDL must complete and pass the written air brakes test and perform their road test in a vehicle so equipped, otherwise they get a "no air brakes" restriction which prohibits them from operating a commercial vehicle equipped with air brakes, but doesn't prevent them from operating a vehicle exempt… Read More
Both air brakes and hydraulic brakes are capable of locking up the wheels. It would depend on the weight of the vehicle, tires and road conditions.
No. Drum brakes expand inside a rotating drum to stop the vehicle, disc brakes squeeze in against a rotating disc.
Is there any difference to changing brakes on a vehicle without ABS as there is to a vehicle having ABS?
just the abs sensor
BRAKES: It is device which to stop or to retard the motion of the vehicle without skidding and converting kinetic energy into heat dissipation. DYNAMOMETER: It is the device which measure the power developed by the vehicle or torque developed by the vehicle. This is done by utilizing the amount of heat developed during the breaking of the vehicle.
It is illegal to repair brakes by an average person take the vehicle to a qualified person.
Air brakes aren't even a factor in determining whether or not a vehicle requires a CDL.
Air brakes have absolutely NO effect on whether a vehicle requires a CDL or not.
