BRAKE SYSTEM

Asked by Jan 06, 2015 at 07:27 PM about the 2002 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put the whole brake system on my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD 4.7 engine pick up. The calipers, the brake pads, the booster and the master cylinder. But I still don't have any brakes the peddle goes all way done and I barely have any brakes. I've tried everything from bench bleeding the master cylinder and all the way around from the calipers. And it's still the same. The brake and the ABS lights stay on, on the dash. I really need to know what can it be?

are you getting fluid at the wheels?? if so then you need to have the ABS unit bleed ...// you will need a scan tool to do so ....//it will actuate the dump valves to remove the air from it ...if you are not getting fluid at the wheels then the master cylinder needs to be bleed some more....once you do that try bottle bleeding the wheels see the pic ....by bleeding it this way you do not need to close the bleeder ...// instead of pulling in air it will pull in fluid helping to move the air out of the system

plus when you bleed the brakes you need to start from the farthest location from the master cylinder
