Disc brake squeaking starts with high temperatures on the face of the pad and then it is magnified at the back of the pads where they contact the caliper. When you replaced the brake pads did you have the rotors machined? You should because the run-out on the rotors can be part of the problem. Also you have anti-rattle clips; were they installed correctly? If you did these correctly then try this: Remove the brake pads and on the back of the pads apply a couple of heavy beads of RTV silicone and let it set up for 20 minutes then install the pads; that should take care of the noise.
The brake pedal has a hinge or pivot pin, give it a shot of lubricant,should stop squeaking.
Warped brake rotors. This is a very common problem for the 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees. You will need to have your rotors replaced, or resurfaced. The best resurface method is with an on car brake lathe.
Brake rotors or drums need to be machined or replaced. If it causes steering wheel shaking, check front brakes. If happens when applying parking brake look to rear brake problem.
The pulley has probably gone bad. This is very common for Caravans. Try having the pulley replaced and see if that solves the problem.
Sounds like a brake wear indicator. If it changes while braking then it is. Recommend a brake inspection.
Problem with the brake switch, below the pedal. The mounting may have got bent keeping them on.
I had the same problem, all I did was replace the fitting that the bulb goes in with a new one ( $8.00 fix) and replaced the tail light and haven't had a problem since.
How do i replace brake lines on a 2000 grand am
Couple of things. Check the ground for the loom at the rear. If that is clean and tight I would suspect that the problem is in the brake light switch.
The brake pads might not be adjusted properly. The brake pads can be too tight and have contact with the rotors.
catlytic converter is plugged and needs replaced
Usually it's low brake fluid or a problem with the abs. Check the brake fluid reservoir. Often the brake fluid will go down as the brake pads wear and the calipers has to travel further.
The brake master cylinder has nothing to do with the way the car runs. It certainly wouldn't cause it to stall.....Maybe the brake booster?
Mine simply needed brake fluid to fill it to the line indicated on the brake fliud container.
Usually they are just used to prevent brake noise (squeaking etc.) I was told that the shims should be used to set space tolerances between pads and rotor, if so, at what measurement? I have no idea!
Mine isn't squeaking. Yours is because your pulleys aren't aligned or because you are using an improper belt.
Had the same problem with my Grand Prix, ended up that the ignition switch had to be replaced. Hope this helps.
It is important to maintain the brake fluid levels in a car. The brake fluid type for a 2002 Grand AM is DOT 3 brake fluid.
check your abs plugs on the top of you master brake cylinder...i had the same problem on my 94 grand am and it turned out to be just a loose plug. check your abs plugs on the top of you master brake cylinder...i had the same problem on my 94 grand am and it turned out to be just a loose plug.
Could be one of your belts.
You probably have warped brake rotors. You'll need to have them replaced or resurfaced.
We just had the same problem with a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. It turned out to be the turn signal/hazzard switch. Good Luck!
I had this problem with my 2002 Grand Prix where it would only work on high, and even then only worked sometimes. I had to have the whole unit replaced. It was around $400.
You have to find and repair the problem. It may be as simple as low fluid, but it can also be more complicated.
