94 Dodge Dakota. The customer...
94 Dodge Dakota. The customer phoned that his (red) brake light was staying on in the dash. Pedal felt fine, maybe a little low, Master cylinder is full on both sides. The rear brakes were out of adjustment and adjusted. Pedal is good now. Emergency brake switch is disconnected. If I unplug the wire at the proportioning valve the light goes off. I have bled the brakes front and rear and cannot get the light to go off. I have also bed the brakes at the proportioning valve and no luck. I have tapped on the valve with my wife working the pedal and lo luck. Any ideas

Welcome to Just answer my name is Mark.

You have covered all the bases so far in trying to get the light to go out. Since you have tried everything including bleeding all 4 wheels, then it will be time to change the proportioning valve.

Hope that helps, let me know if you need anything further. Thanks

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
