      You need to replace the break pads. I had the same situation.

      The brake rotor is the disc that the brake caliper and brake pads grip in order to slow down the vehicle when braking. It is attached at the wheels to the lugs and to the front axle shaft. The brake rotors are inexpensive and easy to replace / change out. Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to change out the rotors.

      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the front brake rotors for around $15.00 each for your vehicle.

      Usually, the shaking while applying brake pedal pressure indicates worn or warped brake rotors. Time to replace or at least have them resurfaced - if there is enough material (thickness) remaining. This is not an uncommon problem, and fortunately the brake rotors are not expensive.

      When replacing the brake rotors, go ahead and replace the wheel bearings and the grease seals, as well - at the same time. The front brake rotors are around $16.00 each, and the wheel bearings are around $42.00 each. The wheel seals are around $4.00 each - for your vehicle.

    Why does my car shake when I apply brakes and have a rumbling noise when cruising?
    The rumbling noise sounds kinda like when a tire has a dent in it or off shape but it does it at all cruising speeds. And the car shakes when the brakes are applied and both problems seem to be coming from the front end if car

      Hello
      It sounds like your brake rotors may have excessive run out causing the brake pulsation. It also sounds like you may have a bad wheel bearing or both bearings.
      Hope this helps you :)

      I fixed this on an old accord one time.

      On mine - there was a small rubber piece that fit in a hole on the petal bracket. This rubber pressed in the button on the brake switch. The rubber piece got brittle and fell off the petal. If I remember right - it would press the button on the switch when you let off the brake petal - thus turning off the brake light. When you pressed in the petal - it would pull away from the switch and the lights would come on. Someone correct me if I have that backwards.

      I glued a penny over the hole and it worked fine. Temporary fix.

      The best fix is to replace the rubber piece - because the penny could damage the switch over time - but that car was too close to the grave to worry about such things.

      You can test to see if it's the switch by pressing in the button with your finger or a tool and have someone tell you if the lights go out.

    The e brake light has been on for a while now. My car is a manual and it drove fine today. Then all of a sudden I cant get it to drive as if the regular and e brake is still on.

      Hello
      You have two fuse boxes in your vehicle, One is under the hood, and one is under the dashboard drivers side. Look in your owners manual if you still are unable to locate them.Hope this helps.

      My kid has the same car . Had same thing going on . After some checking found a hole in the rubber hose between the mass air flow sensor and the intake . Also check ALL the vaccum lines for cracks . That things not what you call new anymore . The rubber gets hard over time and cracks or breaks .

      I hope you lubricated the slide pins or slides so that the caliper balances it's self out so you don't wear the inside pad out first

      There is no brake pressure in the master cylinder and that triggers the brake light on the dashboard.

      Try to pump the brake pedal ( a few times ) to settle the fluid in the caliper. If the problem still persists, see this link How to Bleed Brakes
      FAQ and Step-by-Step Instructions

      Correction. There is no warning switches on the master cylinder. Check the wiring harness for the fluid low warning. It might disconnect and activate the brake light on the dashboard.

    What is wrong with my car?
    The brake pedal has to be pressed all the way to the floor before it will start to begin to brake and the brake will give sometimes and I'll slide a very little.

      If the brake fluid is down in the reservoir then it is possible that you have a brake fluid leak from a rusted through steel brake line. If that is the case, if you fill the master and begin to pump the brake pedal you should see brake fluid begin to drip from someplace under the car.

    I get a really bad vibration when I apply my breaks. Why?
    The vibration is worse with greater speed. Feel like I'm running over a rumble strip.

    truck starts making this noise that sound like metal on metal while driving. Brakes fine. What is it
    Don't squeak when I brake but when driving makes this high pitched metal scrapping sound. Is it my brakes or my rotors? I have new brakes not even two months old

      Maybe the rotor splash shield is rubbing slightly on the spinning rotor, check the clearance, look for a rub mark on the shield. Will require you to isolate which wheel first and then remove the tire for a closer inspection.
