    That's not normal... my 96 Sunfire is doing the same thing except I live in WI and when it snows there are times that I literally cannot stop. The back drums lock up so the ABS starts kicking in even though the front brakes could still let me stop. So the ABS is pumping the front brakes even though it doesnt have to which will make it take 20+ yards to stop from 20mph if theres fresh snow.

Its normal it is just the road is wet so less traction on the tire so slips and when water gets into rotors it tend to slip not like when it dry.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram and I have a deceleration jump/vibration at around 50-40 mph. When the brake is lightly applied it happens, when heavy brake applied it stops. I'm thinking front whell bearings


The front rotors are warped, the reason you feel it when lightly braking is because the pads are just brushing the high spots as they come by. Heaving braking will lock them in tighter and you will not notice it. They have to take the rotors off to turn them so they can check the wheel bearings at the same time and replace or pack them. Just have the rotors turned if they are not worn under the federal limits. If they are worn too bad you will have to replace them.

When i try to stop in the snow or rain my brakes kick back and make a funny noise and i can't stop at all. only when i use booth feet


Those are your anti-lock brakes. Either there is a malfunction, or you are applying to much brake for the road conditions, which is causing the anti-lock brakes to activate. If the road conditions are slick and hazardous, slow down and start stopping sooner.

1994 Ford Taurus. Emergency Brake light on dash does not light up when E Brake is applied. It only lights up momentarily when car is started. It failed safety inspection because they said it was...


Yes it is true. and the light is there as a reminder so when you jump in the car you do not drive away with the park brake on. The park light switch needs to be replaced.Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

you might have the brake shoes adjusted out too much, back them off a little bit and far as the sensor goes, its located on the fuel rail where the injectors are.

Car jumping when brake is applied


I'm pretty sure that your front rotors are warped. Is tis problem only happening when you apply the brakes? If it is, replace the front pads and get new rotors. Be sure when you install the front tires back on, torque the wheels to 90 lbs.
