Brake system maintenance

Asked by Jul 30, 2016 at 11:35 PM about the 1997 Toyota Tercel 4 Dr CE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 20-year old Toyota Tercel with 103K miles. It runs well. Last week, the
brake didn't work. I changed a brake hose because it was leaking and I am
going to change the other 3 brake hoses soon, but do I need to change other
parts in the brake system to make sure that I will not have a brake problem
while driving?

Check the pads to determine if they have enough material on them. If you need pad replacement, I'd replace the rotors as well.

    The brake lights stay on with the ignition switch off and all lights turned off. What causes this? I was informed that it is the micro switch for the brakes. If so, where is that located?
