      Get it scanned first and then you will discover why it lit up in the first place, post the code here, we can help you. Definitely it indicates a fault has occurred in the ABS system. What happens next depends on the nature of the fault. On most applications, the ABS system disables itself if the ABS warning light comes on and remains on. This should have no effect on normal braking. BUT!!! ABS will NOT be available in an emergency situation or when braking on a wet or slick surface.

      DSC (dynamic stability control) the system includes your anti-lock brake system, yaw/lateral control, full speed traction and it manages the braking system to improve the driver control of the vehicle. It monitors your steering wheel angle, front/rear wheel speeds, yaw and lateral rate acceleration and master brake cylinder. It is wise to diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to know the fault of your lights since the dynamic stability controls is so broad.

      Why whats happening? Because if i will answer your question directly, its just a matter of using a c-clamp to compress the piston but i believe there is more to it.

      Did you check if you have enough battery charge? Check also if you have spark, maybe spark plug are worn to excess or the current flow on its cables are intermittent. Check those parts and replace it if necessary.

      None really, unlike the Benz wherein you have to disconnect the SBC

      Loosen all of the lug nuts on the front tires with the tire iron. Place the wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Place the car in park, but do not set the parking brake.

      Position the floor jack beneath the axle of the car and jack it up until there is two inches of clearance between the ground and the tire. Place the jack stands underneath the same axle to support the car. Remove the lug nuts and the tire and set them aside.

      Remove the bottom restraining bolt on the brake caliper mounting bracket with the socket wrench. The mounting bracket is the half-moon shaped bracket located directly behind the tire, on the rotor. Hang the bottom half of the bracket up in the wheel well with the rope to remove and strain on the brake line.

      Remove the brake pads from the bracket by pulling them out by hand.

      Compress the brake caliper cylinder using the C-clamp. Position the C-clamp so that the stationary end is against the rear of the bracket and the movable end is pressed against the brake caliper. If the clamp slips off of the caliper, put one of the old brake pads between the clamp and the caliper for added hold. Compress the caliper until it is flat against the back of the bracket.

      Set the new brake pads into their place in the bracket. The pads are universal, as far as which side of the bracket they go on. Use one boxed set per wheel and make sure that the black brake material of the pads faces towards the rotor.

      Untie the bottom half of the bracket and bolt it back onto the rotor. Bolt the tire back on with the lug nuts, but only tighten them by hand or the wheel will spin. Lower the vehicle and then tighten the lugs with the tire iron.

    I will be replacing front brake discs (rotors). Are the prices on the web-site for ONE or TWO discs? Same for "brake pa
    Same question applies to brake pad sets. One or two pads?

      brake pads come in a set of 2 so when you buy 1 box of front brake pads you get what you need to do the front but rotors you buy 1 at a time so you would need 2 but on the web some sites sell rotor and pad sets.

      There is a gear (it looks like a spur from a cowboy's boot only smaller) you need a flathead screwdriver then you have to push the gear to loosen or tighten the piston which in turn moves the brake shoes

      left loosy, righty tighty

    Brake calipers intermittently grab for no reason.
    Changed calipers twice but problem continues to come back.

      trying to follow so they grab even without hitting the brake or do they grab after you have it the brake? either way this sounds like possibly the abs stability control is kicking on for some reason, possibly a problem with a speed sensor at the wheels or the abs module, i would try hooking up a scan tool that can read abs/ traction codes. see if it finds anything
