97 ram 1500,just redid the rear brake drums and now the brake and abs light are on, and the brakes won't catch, any ideas?
That sounds like air in the system, when you overhauled the wheel cylinders or replaced them did you pinch off the rubber brake lines to the rear end or did you leave it open? If you left it open then the rabs unit also has air in it, look for the little bleeders on that unit and bleed them too. Go to: http://dodgeram.org/tech/repair/Brakes/beeding.htm
Did you adjust the shoes out so that they would have slight drag against drums when you spin the drums. If adjustment is to far out the shoes will not make contact with drum when brakes are applied.
