"i don't have any lights"....vs......brake drag??? I'm not sure if you have an electrical problem with your lighting system....or......you have a Brake Drag problem. Please explain. Are there any Warning Lights ON on the dash? Did you have any maintenance or repair on this vehicle BEFORE these problems surfaced? Does you car have ABS(Anti lock Brake System)?

No all my electronic works I had a my check engine light on an I fix the problem it was something to do with the water so their is not one light on but last night I took the front hub assembly off to make sure it wasn't bad which it wasn't so I don't know what it could be an no there's no abs on it


OK...sounds like you have a brake drag problem. Before we do a complete brake INSPECTION....we put the vehicle on the lift with somebody in the car. That somebody puts the vehicle in Neutral Gear.....then WITHOUT the brakes being applied...we spin each wheel checking for any brake drag or lock up. Then with the engine NOT running...the person in the car is told to step on the brake...we check to see if each wheel locks up. Then he takes his foot OFF the brake...each wheel should turn free with very very little drag. If any wheel will not turn free....we open the BLEEDER SCREW on that Caliper or Wheel Cylinder. That should free up the wheel. If the wheel does not free up by letting brake fluid out..... that wheel has a MECHANICAL Lock up. If the wheel frees up when fluid is let out...that's a HYDRAULIC lock up. Soo....how many of your wheels are Dragging to much. Check it out and get back to us.


Asia....did you fin a fix for this vehicle?
