Brake warning light
 
Hi all,

On the way home from work tonight the brake warning light came on. I looked in the manual which said this indicates a low pressure problem. Does anyone have any insight on this? The brake system on this vehicle is getting me totaly frustrated.Once again any info would be most helpful.

Thanks ,John

Brakes.. my most hated thing on the jeep

Are you having a hard time stopping? Brakepeddle feel the same? any vibs, pulling to one side etc?

I would check the following as a few 1st steps:

1. Fluid level
2. connection between brake line and either caliper or drum cylinder (I think that's what they call it for the rear)
3. If nothing there.. check your front calipers, could have one that is worn or sticking..also could be worn pads...
4. Bleed the system and see what that does if you came up empty on the other stuff

last but not least, keep in mind that the light is just coming on 'cause the switch told it to. maybe the switch is bad :)
