In the back should be tail lights which always come on when the headlights or parking lights are on, and stoplights which come on whenever the brakes are pressed. The stoplights should be brighter than the tail lights, but they should be separate.
Hey Brad No, They should be ok. GoodluckJOe
Assuming we are talking about "S" cam air brakes on a truck, check the angle at the end of the slack adjuster to the actuator rod coming out of the air brake can when brakes are applied, it should be 90 degrees, if the slack adjuster is manual adjust it with the brakes not applied and then test again. If they are automatic slack adjusters and you do not have 90 degrees with brakes applied it is worn out or not installed correctly.
No. The one in the middle is a brake light, and should only come on when you put on the brakes.
check the fuse then the bulbs then the brake switch
Does it actually engage the brakes, or just the brake lights? There should be no possible way for the steering wheel to actuate the braking system, but a short in the wiring somewhere in the steering column could be causing both rear signal lights or brake lights to come on.
When the brake pads are worn the rivets will actually touch the brake rotor when the brakes are applied. The brakes should be changed immediately.
They certainly should do. If not, the vehicle should not be driven until they function correctly.
The rear brakes will lock when there isn't enough weight in the rear of the vehicle, the surface is loose (like a gravel road), or they [the brakes] are applied to heavily. Newer vehicles with anti-lock brake systems (ABS) should not have this problem.
Stand on, but remain alert.
If you have a trailer wiring harness it probably has a short in it and is back feeding the circuit when the brakes are applied remove and replace the trailer harness and this should fix the problem.
With the brakes applied, the angle of the slack adjuster and the actuating rod should be at 90 degrees.
Depends on the kind of pads/rotors you got. It's normal for some compounds to squeak .
You should not drive the car until the brakes are repaired.
should brakes be kept in a good condition
The brake lights should not come one until you step on the brakes. The tail lights should come on when the headlights are on. If they're weak, maybe there's dirt in/on the lenses or maybe the bulb is old and clouded. Change the bulbs and see if that improves things.
Yes they should , they stay on all the time , while the ignition is on all the best Fester
No... they should share their brakes with eachother, and if they can't share their brakes they should take a break and see how it works out. Friends don't let friends take brakes... That's theft
The brake lights come on. The alternator should maintain voltage (14.2) unless the alternator is failing or the battery is nearing end of life.
remain calm and continue driving in the same lane. Begin to apply the manual emergency brake with your hand, lightly at first to determine the strength. You dont want to lock up the brakes, so apply the emergency brakes in spurts and make your way to the side of the road.
The brakes should be inspected every oil change and replaced when necessary.
Yes, it should be disc brakes.
Yes, that is the purpose of brakes.
You should use your emergence/parking brakes as a backup to your regular brakes.
brakes, lights, oil, water, battery, air & gas
Check fuse for stop lightsStop lights and shift interlock are in a common circuitMove key to 1st position (unlock)Shift to neutral to start vehicle and then you should be able to shift to Drive
