Brake problems

I am having a little brake problems on my 88 Bronco. When I use the brakes alot, (like driving around town) my brake light and RABS light will come on. My brakes will feel hard. When I turn of the car and then re-start it they will work ok for a little while. If I drive on the highway then the problem takes long time if at all. Any Ideas what might be causing this.

Re: Brake problems

Humm not sure. Check your brake fluid to make sure its full. Also check the inside of your rear wheels for break fluid leaking out and being slung around. May be a wheel cylinder.

Re: Brake problems

I am not leaking any fluid. I am wondering if I might have a brake cal that might be getting stuck. Because when this happens I do notice a little drag after a stop.

Re: Brake problems

I had the EXACT same problem. It went away though, now the brake light is on once I start the BRONC.

I've given up on my rear anti-locks.

Re: Brake problems

Maybe pop her up and check out the rear brakes then. Best way to learn is take both sides off and do one at a time and use the other as a template.
