you need to have your brake rotors turned or even replaced, this is a 200.00 fix or so
There are a number of reasons this could happen improper seating of the pads/shoes or air in the brake line
Check either on the steering column down by brake pedal or on side of transmission Check either on the steering column down by brake pedal or on side of transmission Check either on the steering column down by brake pedal or on side of transmission Check either on the steering column down by brake pedal or on side of transmission Check either on the steering column down by brake pedal or on side of transmission
More than likely you have a warped disc brake rotor. Recommend seeing a mechanic for brake repair or replacement.
try haveing tires rotated and balanced, check for worn suspension and steerign components. does brake pedal pulsate when braking? out of round brake rotors can cause a shake in front end , or could be a caliper hanging up
Steering wheel and brake pedal.
check your anti lock brake systemm as this is what it supposed to do . It pulsates so that it will not lock up
Your brake rotors are warped.
The gas pedal, the brake pedal, and the steering wheel all do.
your rotors are warped its gonna be a kinda pricey fix :-\
The accelerator is one: to increase velocity, push the pedal down, to decrease, lift your foot off. The brake is another, apply the brake and velocity will decrease. also the steering wheel affects it. The gas pedal, the brake pedal, and the steering wheel all do.
For several years of the Chevy astro van had a power brake and power steering system that was linked together. Instead of a brake booster, the power steering pump provides power to the power brake system. Often, if the brake pedal would become hard to push, it is a power steering pump problem. Change the power steering pump and the power steering fluid and your problem may disappear.
under the steering column above the brake pedal
To remove the brake pedal on a 1998 Suburban, unscrew the bolt that holds it to the steering wheel column. There are several wires that also have to be disconnected from here that control brake lights.
AnswerUsually a pulsating brake pedal is an indication of a warped rotor. When you replaced the rotors did you torque the lug nuts to the proper specs, (80 ft lbs)? If not then you are warping them each time. Also make sure you tighten in a criss cross pattern. Of course you need to check each and every rotor for trueness. Also a warped wheel can cause this. Check all your wheels for a bent condition.If your brake pedal is pulsating. You might have a out of round rear brake drum. When your front rotors are warped you will feel it in your steering wheel. Try this test. lightly rest your foot on the brake pedal, with your foot resting on the pedal slowly apply your E brake. ( your E brake only works your rear brakes) If your brake pedal pulsates the problem is in the rear brakes.
Most likely it is either the brake light switch, under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal or the turn signal switch inside the steering column.
gearshift, brake pedal, and steering wheel.
Below and to the left of the steering wheel , by the brake pedal
You would pump the brake pedal to try to maintain control and steering.
look right above your brake pedal underneath the steering column.

Below and to the left of the steering wheel , by the brake pedal ( it has a cover on it )
UNDER the dash, on the steering column and it makes contact with the brake pedal It looks like a bracket, that wraps around the brake pedal arm, and it has a cylinder type switch that makes contact with the brake pedal arm. When the brake pedal is pressed down it pushes the cylinder switch together which closes the circuit and makes you brake lights come on. It may be a fuse or wires but start with the switch.
i do not know what type of vehicle you have, but most brake light switches are located behind the brake pedal. Ive not seen a switch yet that cant be accessed from under the dash just stick your head down by the brake pedal and look up you should see it where the brake pedal rests.
could be your ignition
