1981 Firebird Trans-am brake problem

Asked by Jul 28, 2014 at 02:11 PM about the 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1981 Trans-am firebird. The brake light was staying on. I changed the mastercylinder, proportioning valve, the hydrobooster, and have bleed the brakes several times. Now it comes on when I push the brakes all the way down. I notice that when I set the park brakes, the light doesn't come on. No schematic in my TM. Thoughts???

Brake light means low brake fluid in the reservior or the brake fluid level sensor is faulty. Is it leaking anywhere?

The brake fluid is fine. The only sensor I can find is on the proportioning valve. I jumped it and it illuminates the brake light on the instrument panel.

I have a 1998 Firebird trans am, my front tires are completely lock, I did replace the front tires dics, brake pads and calipers but still lock, do not freely turn. The front left caliper dripped a melky brake fluid. I have not touch the master cylinder and hoses. What could be my problem????
