No, on most newer cars you also have to press the brake pedal to shift out of Park.
normally loose brake pads or discs
They transfer the pressure you applied at the brake pedal to the brake pads against the brake rotors, stopping or slowing down the wheels from turning.
Could be that the rotors are "out of round" and pulsate Could be a malfunction in the ABS system
Hard to say but likely brake rotors need replacing
More than likely you have a warped rotor, replacement is best.
Can't say that I fully understand the question. Rear window brake? Brakes don't work? Please explain. Does brake pedal go to the floor? No brake fluid in Master cylinder? due to leak. Brake pedal has normal travel but no stopping? Worn brake linings. Clicking in console could be normal, sounds like shift interlock is working properly. Allowing you to shift from "park" into other shift positions. Have to step on brake pedal to allow shift.
make sure your brake pads are in good condition, a vibration in the brake pedal indicates a warped rotor to include worn front disk pads, make sure your front tires are not going bald, because they will do just as much vibration as a warped rotor when stepping on the brake pedal.
Not usually. It is possible for the mater cylinder get suck in the apply position, but the brake pedal would not return to the up position after stopping. A more common problem for the brakes to be stuck applied is a locked wheel cylinder or brake caliper, or a jambed parking brake. These issues will be at one or more of the wheels, so check there if your brake pedal is at normal height.
In my experience, when brake lights remained on even after stopping and shutting off the car.....many times it was the brake stoplight switch, usually located on the brake pedal arm up above the pedal.
A pulsing brake pedal indicates a warped disk rotor and that means the rotor needs to be replaced. In that case, they should both be done at the same time.
Pulsation in brake pedal when stopping? yes and also a shake or shimmy in the steering wheel when brake. your brakes may also chatter
Please re-phrase your question; it appears you are saying the brake lights come on when you push the brake pedal and the lights are working (normal operation). If the lights are staying on after you release the pedal, then the problem is with th brake light switch (sticking). Thanks Malcolm
nothing it could just be the tail lights coming on.
Air trapped in the brake lines. Bleed your brakes and that will solve the problem.
Check the brake switch under your pedal (which needs to be pushed when the brake pedal is depressed). This is what the problem was on my friends Sentra. As long as you have checked the lights and fuses, this should do it.
The brake pedal will go to the floor but will have absolutely no effect on stopping the vehicle. When you push on the brake pedal it moves the fluid through metal tubes (called brake lines) to force the brake pads against the rotor which slows and stops the car. No fluid means nothing is in there to make the brake pads engage the rotors.
It is above the brake pedal not under it. Follow the brake pedal bracket all the way up and you will see the brake pedal switch.
Sounds like the brake switch underneath the dash connected to the brake pedal is stuck. Look under the dash at where the brake pedal is connected and move the pedal with your hand and you should see an electrical connection or contact mounted to the pedal.
One of the main causes of feeling a vibration in the gas pedal is engine vibration. The vibration from the engine causes the accelerator cable or linkage to vibrate and the vibration can be felt in the gas pedal. Check with a mechanic to be sure.
Brake booster problem?
Take your foot off the gas and move it to the pedal on its side - the brake pedal.Take your foot off the gas and move it to the pedal on its side - the brake pedal.Take your foot off the gas and move it to the pedal on its side - the brake pedal.Take your foot off the gas and move it to the pedal on its side - the brake pedal.
Just above the brake pedal, on the mounting bracket that the pedal pivots on.Just above the brake pedal, on the mounting bracket that the pedal pivots on.
If you have rear drum brakes, you have to adjust your rear brake shoes. That will also give you a better pedal and more stopping power.
