my abs and brake lite comes on and stays on! other times not at all! what is the deal?
Improved : I have a 2003 Suburban that had this same problem. My sister has a 2000 suburban also with the same issue. The solution I have found is very simple and can be done without a mechanic.
There is a ground wire connected to the top rear of the engine block on the passenger side. You can find it by removing the engine cover and reaching back behind the intake manifold and down. This ground connection is bolted to the engine block and the connection becomes compromised over time by dirt, grease, cleaning products or rust.
You need to unbolt this ground, clean the surfaces and replace. On one other vehicle I just reached back and twisted this connection to get a firmer connection and the problems went away.
It sounds too simple but it works. Try it first before going to the dealer or mechanic.
Yes they indeed have brake lights...
How do you replace a break light switch on 1995 Chevy Tahoe
BEHIND THE BRAKE PEDAL
Need to know what the question is.
A 2002 Chevy Tahoe uses the standard brake fluid in passenger vehicles with power brakes. It is known as DOT3 brake fluid.
you most likely have to change the front hubs with the speed sensors i have tried everything else
about 3 dollars
There are a couple of things that might cause a Chevy Tahoe to lurch forward after releasing the brake. One reason could be that the idle is high. The drive shaft may have to be greased.
The BRAKE(!) light will go on steady without the parking brake on.
The fuse for the heated seats on a 2004 Chevy Tahoe is located behind the e-brake. It is in a black plastic box on the driver's side.
Take off the tire, remove the brake caliper, and pull off the rotor.
Factory says to use DOT 3 only.
3/8 Allen wrench socket
about a $1000, but look for a better deal
There is more than one relay, be more specific. Third Brake light
That is the anti locking brake sensor / wheel speed sensor
in front of the wheel bearing your anti lock brake system sensor should be, im having the same problem
The booster is on the driverside fire wall and the MASTER CYLINDER IS BOLTED TO IT.
Master cylinder, located on firewall, driver's side, mounted to the brake booster. A very large circular object about 10" in diameter.
The relay is on the left side of the power brake booster/.
The light assy has to come off and there a couple of screws you get to from inside to remove the light.
Lift the vehicle, remove the tire , remove the brake shoe/calipers, and remove the old brake pads. Put in new brake pads, put the brake shoe/caliper in its place, put the tire back on and lower the vehicle.
Typically at the brake rotor. It is a magnetic hall-effect sensor that usually reads off of the wheel bearing or the CV.
