I really don't know what you want to know. The brake system is hydraulic. If your are talking about the fluid type, it is DOT3.

AnswerWhat you most likely want to know is if the brake system is heavy-duty or not. You need to locate the build code (RPO code) sticker. It is in the trunk of sedans and on the rear gate jam of wagons. You want to look for these two three letter codes:

JA1 - Light-Duty Brakes JA2 - Heavy Duty Brakes (Okay, really medium duty..but for a celebrity it's heavy-duty )

AnswerThe brake type for my 85 2.5L celebrity is JA1. This JA1 code number is located on a label on my trunk spare tire cover, second row of numbers, 4th one across. Thanks to the dude that explained what these numbers meant.


I have a 1989 Chevy Celebrity Sedan 4 Door, I looked in the trunk, under the spare tire cover and only found a label with spare tire and jack info. Found no codes on this 15"x10" Label.

Question: Where else would these codes be?

There is no way to post the detailed description plus illustrations that would help you do a brake job. I would suggest you consult either a Chilton manual or Haynes manual to help you do a successful brake job on your Chevy Celebrity.

Yes, there a diagram that illustrates the brake system in a Chevy Impala. It is found in the maintenance manual for the car.

It means there is a problem with your brake system. Can be it is just low of brake fluid or can mean something more serious. Do not ignore this warning.

where is the drake light switch on a 1999 chevy s10. The brake light switch is located just above the brake pedal. You will need a flashlight to see it.
