Kia spectra 2006 - brake job

Question From howard2s on Kia spectra 2006 - brake job

I just replaced my front brakes on my 2006 KIA spectra. the steps i took:
wheel off
loosened top bolt.
removed bottom bult.
clamped break line and disconnected line
pushed in with clamp
replaced brakes
reconnected breakline
tightened everything up and placed tire back on.

brake fluid level is good.

i read somewhere to bleed the brake line. how do i do that and where can i find the valve??

thanks.

Response From Hammer Time

You should never have disconnected it in the first place. Now you have to bleed the air out of the caliper.

Crack open the bleeder while someone hold pressure on the brake pedal. Tighten bleeder before releasing the pedal and repeat unto you get a pedal. Make sure the reservoir stays full.

Response From howard2s

where is the bleeder located?

Response From Hammer Time

You're over your head. You need to tow it to a shop.
Next time don't take things apart that you know nothing about.

Response From howard2s Top Rated Answer

I'm not over my head. Isn't this forum to help those that try and diy? could have just said it was located on the front of the calipers.

I feel that I was capable of simply changing the brake pads. If there was other issues, I would have taken it to my mechanic.

Response From Hammer Time

Anyone that is not familiar with a brake bleeder, it's location and how to use it definitely should not be messing with something as important as brakes.

Response From howard2s

the breaks were fine. just needed to stiffer. i'm aware of what i'm doing. if i couldnt stop in the driveway, i wouldnt take the car out on the street.

You are over your head for brake work if you have to ask for where a bleeder is and that's so fundamental. Site does cater to DIYers but this is too much for many out there to DIY. Brakes are not the place to learn by trial and error nor is much else involving control of a vehicle,

2010 Kia Sedona

Question From rjvitullo on 2010 Kia Sedona

Hi I have a 2010 Kia Sedona the shifter will not shift out of park. I push down on the brake with the engine running and the release button will not push in and the shifter will not move.
Any help will be most appreciated.
Thanks

Response From rjvitullo

Hi, Well the recall fix solved my problem. The stoplight switch got replaced and all is well. Thanks for the help I received this is a great forum.

Response From Hammer Time

You're welcome.................

Question closed now as solved

Response From Discretesignals

Brake lights work?

Response From rjvitullo

No they dont. I did not think to check that earlier. Do you have an idea whats wrong?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

/
Stoplight switch would be my first check if only visually there and in proper place. Then see if power is there and goes thru it if all looks OK. Should be right down at arm of brake pedal,

Response From rjvitullo

Apparently there is a recall for the switch. I guess I should have called them first but I have an aversion to dealerships. Thanks to all that responded I appreciate the help.

Response From Hammer Time

If there is a recall, just go ahead and let them deal with it. If you break something trying to fix it, they may refuse to fix the problem.

Response From rjvitullo

I have roadside assistance on the way and I will let the dealer have at it. Again thanks very much for the advice.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Sounds like you are going to be fine and a fast fix. Switch is just allowing current from one side to the other such that both brake lights work and the shifter lock knows you have you foot on brake as well at the same time. If and sounds like it with recall just a switch fix please say so for archives,


T

Response From rjvitullo

I will post as soon a I have a conclusion.

Response From Hammer Time

You should have an over ride button or slot near the shifter to bypass that lock. If not try this..... Turn the key one click to the position where the wheel is not locked but the key is no fully on yet then see if it will shift out of Park. If so, put it in neutral and start it from that position.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Thanks. Just FYI on this problem and it is of course. Find out as some vehicles will have a slot to put a key (about any) in that will allow you to start it in Neutral OR some if you just turn key towards plain "run" mode shifter will move. I can't know all possible tricks each model of everything might have for an emergency and forcing the shifter isn't a good choice!


Owner's manual may say for just this situation if only to get out of the way with the vehicle!


Good luck, Tom

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Slow down for a minute. You have power to the switch you said -right? Now see if you can push the small plunger/button and make brake lights work, hence it will then shift out of park.


Sorry, no first hand experience on this car but might be as silly as a rubber bumper or it lost all adjustment such that it doesn't recognize the pedal is being pushed?? Look for that as it's a bit new for wild other issues IMO and the switch itself should really last longer than that so check it physically that it moves like you would expect - basic like a plain door jam switch (not all vehicles) that knows a door is open such that lights come on,

Response From rjvitullo

Okay I have power to the stoplight switch but no brake lights and not able to move shifter. Will replacing switch correct these issues?

Response From rjvitullo

I will check it now. Thanks

Response From Hammer Time

The fuses would be my first check.

Response From rjvitullo

I did checked the fuses, but will double check. Thanks

brake lights dont work 2002 kia optima

Question From daniel garcia on brake lights dont work 2002 kia optima

i bought a 2002 kia optima and the brake lights dont work. It's not the brakelight/cruse control switch.The cruse control still works. It"s also not the light bulbs. I cannot find a fuse for brake light. I dont know what else to try. PLEASE help me

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

You can't rule out the switch or the fuse until you have verified power into the switch and back out when the brake is applied.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Just how have you ruled out a brake light (stop light) switch other than that the cruise control still works? Power in and goes out thru a switch. Does "high mount" or third brake light work? Bulbs known good?


Fuse? Check owner's manual for what it uses. Quick look this could have features that change how it's all controlled,
