The vehicle was not inspected by the dealer but was repaired by the contact. Display reported an assortment of warnings and engine starter failed to activate. Well the lines rotting out on top of the gas tank and the front frame rails will not get washed. We towed the car home to inspect and replace the brake line. Without a power steering pressure and flow gauge you can't check it.
The owner later contacted the dealer and was told by the dealership that they had no knowledge of this recall and refused to assist the owner any further. There is too much to list here, I would recommend buying a Chiltons or Haynes manual for reference. A Chevrolet dealer should be consulted to have the switch replaced. After a few hours of troubleshooting, I isolated the problem to a defective hazard switch. Motorists following the van may not have adequate warning the van is stopping or may be stopped for an emergency. Still blowing a 20A fuse every day or so. I lost braking power and nearly caused an accident.
I've seen numerous reports online of other people with the same issue being denied as well. Happened again April 13, 2015. Remove the engine cover and the air cleaner and housing assembly. If I moved the wire out the light would dim. After researching the issue, I discovered that the problems I'm experiencing are related to 2 switches above my brake pedal-the stop lamp switch and the brake cruise release switch. I had to get a wrecker to take it home.
Now fails inspection because the frame is severely rusted, my truck is now unsafe. Parked it in a garage and shutoff engine. Also the pin from the booster to the master cylinder may have been stuck inside the hydroboost that you took out. All of our Chevrolet vehicles have had brake lines rot out. Safest bet would be a tow to the mechanic who will probably replace the pump. The cable has a klew that transfers from one cable to two cables and that is located directly underneath the driver's side door, in the direct line of fire from road debris that comes off of the front tire.
Most hydro boost systems suppy the brake booster first and then go to the steering sector. Is your brake pedal hard even setting this is where it gets to be a problem. I had a guy look at my bulb sockets and that was the problem. If we avoid backing up, we don't blow the fuse. The Brake fluid will eventually destroy the diaphram in the booster if it hasn't already.
If there was no problem then why did Chevrolet evidently change their lines? Astro's power steering and power brakes run off the same hydraulic system. I told my son to push the brake pedal while I was underneath and the brake lines broke. While the assistant holds the caliper and loosens the bleeder valve to relieve the pressure, obtain a medium pry bar and try to force the old pad inward, making the piston flush with the caliper surface. It will be obvious once you've remove just enough of the plastic housing. I had to go thru the emergency lane.
Intermittently, it would take 3 to 5 times more stopping distance than legacy brakes without antilock. The parking brake was seized in the off position. The van should be returned to the mechanic who installed the engine for re-installation of the the balance shaft. Anything over 4,000lbs with good brakes behind the astro will push the rear end around in an unfriendly manner under hard braking and during quick maneuvers. I drove it straight to the dealer when I found out in traffic.
Take your time so you want damage the wire and socket ring stem inside. What we determined caused the problem was a hot wire that ran between the battery and starter was rubbing on the suspension links on the passenger side of the vehicle. The reference to my call is 71-1478975898. If there was no problem then why did Chevrolet evidently change their lines? There was a short in the sockets. It takes some patience as the plastic is quite tough to cut away. The abs unit was not working properly and the rear brakes had already failed. The only way to remove air from the brake system is to bleed the system.
