Would a blown brake line affect the start of a 1992 Mazda truck?
Brake lines are in no way connected to the engine. Brakes are a hydraulic system and is separate from the engine. "IF" you are talking about a vacuum line, you may have trouble starting or runnning the engine. There is a vacuum booster behind the brake master cylinder. The vacuum or suction from the engine pulls on a rubber diaphragm to assist with braking, If the line or hose is broken, you will have some trouble with the idle. It would normally increase in this situation as the engine is getting more air through the hose instead of through the air filter.
Why a 1996 Chevy Tracker automatic transmission would sometimes lock in park even when brake pedal is pressed?
Would a blown brake light fuse on 03 Saturn L200 cause gear shift to malfunction. How do you change fuse for brake lights on 03 Saturn?
Try moving the steering wheel at same time If moving the steering wheel does not work, it is likely a problem with the Brake/Shift Interlock switch located at the brake pedal lever. It maybe that a wire is broken or, the switch is bad. I had this problem with a 1997. The brake light fuse was blown because of a trailer. With the brake fuse blown, it would not come out of Park.
If you mean the "BRAKE LIGHTS", it could be the switch, the turn signal switch, broken wires or bad connection in the wires or a faulty ground. If you mean the tail lights that come on with the headlights, it could be a bad headlight switch, burned out bulbs, bad wires or connection or a faulty ground.
This could be a number of things: A leaking brake line, a blown master cylinder, a blown seal on a caliper or a blown wheel cylinder on a drum brake, however, the last two you are likely to feel the brake in the vehicle lock up when you try to stop. Agreed, all true. But the most common reason is low fluid level in master cylinder or air in brake lines
