Cadillac Fleetwood ABS and Brake Light Come On

Reader Question

I have a Cad. Fleetwood, 8 Cylinder, 4-2 lit. has soft (swishhy) Brake pedal and both the brake and the antilock brake light comes one only when the brakes are applied–and does not stay on.

The brake fluid was low but the problem persists even after the fluid was full. There is no visible leakage anywhere that I can see..

Hey there

You could have a bad brake master cylinder, but you better get a mechanic to check it out first before you just replace it as a guess….its kinda a pricey guess. I would also pull the wheels off and check all the brake parts for brake fluid leaks or wear.

    Hey I’m having a problem with my cadillac fleetwood. I replaced the master cylinder but now the front drivers side brake gets super hot. I replaced the pads, rotor, and caliper with no change.

      I think I would replace the rubber brake hoses and cross your fingers….you have basically replaced everything else. You should replace hoses in pairs, so replace both side front brake hoses, then re-bleed the system to get the air out. Let us know if that solved the problem.
