I read several pages of posts and searches and while there is always great info....it doesent "exactly" address my issue.
Ok...car runs great, new brakes, rotors, pads, shoes etc.
When I hit the brake pedal normally, the red brake light and the yellow abs light come on together (maybe a half second delay between the two, red brake first..then yellow abs) and the peddle seems at first loose for an 1" and then hard. Braking is there and the car is drivable if I am careful but in no way would it stop in an emergency situation.
This situation occurs when the car is moving and in park.....running or not. Each time I hit the brake pedal...both lights come on. Let off the pedal...lights go off.....running or not.
In a driving situation where I slightly apply peddle pressure for a few seconds before actually braking ...and then depress brake slowly...it seems that the peddle feels more accurate and the braking is more normal, the lights dont come on but nowhere near perfect braking before.
When I turn the ignition to the on postion I can hear a click at the MC and about 2 seconds later another click but thats it. If I let it sit say 15 minutes and do the same routine.....I hear the first click...I hear a motor/pump run for about 2 seconds...click...then nothing.
When I hit the brake pedal fast...it feels loose down to about 1-2" and then hits a hard spot...from there its hard but spongy if that makes sense. If I slowly depress the pedal...I dont feel the loose/hard issue but the pedal has the hard/spongy feel all the way
Having read all relative posts about teves, pumps, relays, lines etc and upon inspection.....there are no visible leaks and fluid is at correct level. It is the Teves system as displayed at the REATTA site with the black sphere accumaltor.
Posters have talked about a relay issue and motor/brush refurbishment that may be related. There are several electrical connections at the MC....what do I look for?
Any thoughts will be appreciated.
