Morning all

Over the last couple of days ive shouted the ef new engine oil, diff oil, braided brake lines and fuel filter.

I took it for a quick run this morning and noticed the following problems

-pedal feel was up the s**t. could be pushed into the floor.

-the little exclamation mark light (!) was up on the dash

-when turning accessories on and off there was a noise coming from the front passenger side of the car. sounded like a ping pong ball dropping.

whats going on- i have done the same maintanace on countless cars without drama. Brakes were bled fine, should be no air in the system.

if it makes any difference, my battery was flat. although my battery runs flat almost weekly as i dont drive the car often.

any ideas on what the f**k going on? how do i check what the light on the dash means?

cheers
Tim

Did you remove the brake warning light switch from the master cylinder, pump the brakes and then replace the switch as this resets the proportioning valve in the master cylinder and the brake warning light on the dash :roll: :shock:
