You will need a small electrical multi-tester to test the switch. Set the tester to "ohms". Disconnect the wiring from the switch. Touch one of the tester leads to one side of the switch and the other lead to the other side. Your reading should be zero. Have a friend depress the brake pedal, and the needle on the meter should swing left to right. If the needle does not swing then the switch is… Read More

ABS means Anti-lock Braking System. For a wheel to be able to contribute to the control of the vehicle the wheel has to be rolling. If you brake so hard that the wheel stops rolling, you are quite likely to lose control of the vehicle. ABS works mainly by comparing the rolling speed of all wheels, and if one wheel stops, the brake force to that wheel is released until it starts rolling again. Read More
To avoid the car from rolling forward. Read More
Turn signals use a relay or 'flasher' which is usually located on or near the column under the dash. Brake lights get their power thru the brake light switch on or near your brake pedal under the dash; check it with a 12v circuit tester. Read More
With an ohmeter or a self-powered test light. Hook the two leads of your tester to the terminals on the brake light switch. Push down on the brake pedal and if the light stays off or the meter stays at infinity, the switch is bad. Read More

Start at the basics. Bulbs, fuses, then you need to get serious and check wires and connections. It is best if you have an electrical tester to check for power. Read More
Check the brake pads on that wheel, it sounds like you have metal on metal if the grinding is only when you are stoping or right after you release the brake and start rolling Read More
if it is straight gear use the toe and heel approach left foot on clutch right toes on gad right heel on brake works--- if you have a manual transmission vehicle, partly engage the clutch before you take your right foot off the brake. put on the parking brake whenever nesesary to keep from rolling back.

A latching brake usually used to keep the vehicle stationary. It is sometimes also used to prevent a vehicle from rolling when the operator needs both feet to operate the clutch and throttle pedals. Read More
Air unlike brake fluid can be compressed. When there is air in the brake system it compresses when you apply the brakes. This causes a loss of brake pressure on the brake pads and results in much longer stopping distances. This is dangerous and will cause an accident. Read More
The brake dust is from the brake pads, which wear over time from use, and release small particles which results in "Dust" it will usually just wash off with a garden hose. Read More
Brake lights arent coming on changed bulbs and fuses and no results what else needs to be checked on a 98 Chevrolet lumina?
If the brake lights are not coming on in your car and you have changed the bulbs and the fuses with no results, you could also check the wiring in your '98 Chevrolet Lumina. The wires may be damaged or even broken. Read More

Brake lights on a 2000 Toyota solara wont operate fuses have been checked and bulbs have been changed all other lights in the rear operate normally?
Maybe the switch is bad or sticking? The brake light switch is under the dash toward the top of the brake lever. You can easily check to see whether there's power to it and whether it's operating properly with a voltage and/or continuity tester. Cheers Read More
Most cars have a safety feature that prevent car from accidentally "rolling". Its called the "interlocking brake system". stepping on the brake before you try to put it in gear might work. there could be a problem with that feature if it still does not work. Read More
Some knowledge of brake repair and procedures is necessary to complete this job for proper and safe brake operation results. Your local auto parts store can supply you with the parts needed. Have a trusted mechanic coach you and inspect the job when finished. Read More
I assume you have checked/replaced the bulbs. Take a cicuit tester and check the wire harness connections under the bumper and around the trailer connector if you have one. The problem must be at that area IF all your other lights are working as you said. Read More
Use the brake or the emergency brake. You could also give just the right amount of gas to make the car stay put but that's a lot of work. Or you could put a log or something sturdy behind the wheels Left foot on brake pedal, right foot on accelerator pedal Read More
your fuse is proble blown If the turn signals work then that tells me that the power and wires are good back to the bulbs but you need to check the brake light switch which is located near the brake pedal under dash. Use a 12V circuit tester here to see if there is power going thru it. This may be your problem. I hope this helps you. Mark Read More
Not by much. But the lower the pressure, the more the tire will squish and deform around the contact patch as it rolls along. And the more it squishes and deforms, the more rolling resistance there will be, and with rolling resistance adding to the braking, the bike will stop faster. Read More

Unless you are talking about a manual transmission, you do the same when you start it normally but you can also use the hand brake the same as the pedal brake. If you using a manual transmission you have to release the clutch just enough to hold the car in place when you take your foot off the brake pedal. This keeps the car from rolling backwards. Then you release the clutch while pressing on… Read More

There is something wrong with the braking system. If your brake system locks up at that speed, the results could be very , very serious. Have it checked as soon as possible. Read More
What could be problem with 1999 Dodge Ram Van turn signals and brake lights that stopped working correctly even though the fuses and relays are fine?
A short, or a severed wire all together. Get a tester that lights up, check it that way :) Read More
Hi, This should be a simple, straightforward procedure. Step on the brake to make sure you don't roll when you release the parking brake. Lift the parking brake handle a bit (if it has been made to be set hard, it may need an effort to lift th handle) then push the button the end to release the brake then lowere the handle. I hope this helps and you get on your way. Steve H… Read More
when you remove the brake light and unscrew the cradle which the bulbs fit into remove the bulbs and make sure the connectors are clean and are get a clean and secure connection with the bulbs. Then get a wire tester that light up when current is flowing and use that to check for power. If your lights aren't working and the bulbs and fusesare good,try wiggling the hazard light switch while depresssing the brake… Read More
Basically, a brake assist system monitors the driver?s use of the brake pedal, automatically sensing an attempt to stop the car as a result of panic. It then generates very high braking power, even when the driver is only pressing lightly on the brake pedal. When this is used together with anti-lock braking systems, it results in faster and safer braking. Source: http://www.brakeassist.com Read More
Switch to TOD and drive about 5mph. Once all 4 tires light, switch to 4H while rolling slowly and in neutral. Might have to step on brake? Read More
Check the wiring. Probably got a short. It could be a short, however, if your tail lights are illuminated, then you might rule out a short. You might also check your fuse for the brake lights. If the fuse is good, then you should check your brake light switch. It is probably a small box-like object attached to the brake pedal arm. To check the switch, you will need a circuit tester or testlight. The… Read More
Just dip it in the master cylinder fluid reservoir for 2 seconds and the tip will turn colors. The darker the color, the more contaminated the fluid. These certain testers measure the amount of copper the fluid has been contaminated with contrary to many peoples beliefs that it is testing for moisture content. This is NOT true even though brake fluid DOES absorb moisture when the container is left uncapped. Read More
NO! They did not have a code box until 1989 Yes they all do. The code box is right in front of the brake booster in the engine compartment on the drivers inner fender well. There is a tester there and a series of blinking lights basically. You will need a manual to decipher the number of blinks. Read More
If the gear shift won't go into park on an automobile, the parking brake should be engaged and the vehicle turned off. This will prevent the vehicle from rolling away and potentially causing damage. Read More
Mineral is not the only thing used in disk brakes. Some manufacturers specify DOT brake fluid. It is most important to use EXACTLY what the manufacturer of the system calls for because using the wrong fluid in a brake system can destroy the seals in the system. This results in leaks and then you can't stop, which would be bad. Find out what your vehicle's brake system needs per the manufacturer and use only that… Read More

First you buy a good-quality 3rd brake light kit appropriate for the mounting angle on your particular car -- see the links below for examples. If your car's left and right brake lights are separate from the left and right rear turn signals (different bulbs for the brake lights and turn signals), then you just follow the instructions with the kit. If your car has combination brake/turn lights (the same red light burns steadily for… Read More
Check the coolant with a coolant tester. You coolant may have broken down is not functioning properly anymore. You may be due for a coolant change. If your coolant smells like brake fluid, It is time to change it. Remember, Anti-freeze is also means Anti-boil. Read More
Checked bulbs and fuses. Replaced switch. Brake lights on your Daewoo Leganza still don't work. What else could cause this?
About the only other things that could cause this are: 1: The switch is not adjusted properly. Check to ensure that the brake pedal is actually activating the switch and make any adjustments necessary. 2: The fuse looks good but isn't. Try a new fuse or test the old fuse to be sure. Not all bad fuses are visibly apparent. 3: If the vehicle has a brake light relay, find its location and test or… Read More
What would cause brake lights to not work on a 95 Jimmy but the third brake light works just fine and tail light bulbs are not blown and turn signals work as well?
Check around the trailer connector for a short; plus under the bumper is a harness that splits off the taillights so take a circuit tester and check for shorts here also. turn signal switch assembly worn out try another one third light is not wired throguh this switch but the two brake lights are the switch cancels the brakes for turn signals and hazards, it wears out eventually Read More
The lights mentioned are wired into the same fuse on a 1987 Mazda 323. First thing to check is the fuse. Using a spark tester poke the fuse and see if there is current flowing. If there isn't a current replace the fuse. Read More
Your owners manual explains exactly how to do this. You put the parking brake lever to the floor and, while keeping your foot on the brake pedal to keep car from rolling after parking brake is released, push the button on lever all the way in and while keeping button pressed the whole time, pull up until you get the lever past the notch you locked it in to begin with. Then, without releasing the… Read More

How do you release a locked emergency brake on a Chevy S10 pickup when the brake handle will not release?
I am assuming that you can physically move the parking brake lever however the actual parking brake mechanism will not release. If that is the situation, then first, block the wheels with a large piece of wood, brick, or something substantial to prevent the vehicle from rolling for safety sake. Then place the parking brake lever in the released position or have someone hold the parking brake lever in the released position while you or… Read More
