View Full Version : '02 Brake pedal and Steering wheel issue

First of all, thank you to ALL who post here, you've been a big help. Second of all, this one hasn't been covered in any of the posts so far, so here goes...

Oddest thing... I started my '02 2 days ago and my power sterring didn't work. I turned it and then started it again and it worked fine. The only thing is, when I touch the brake pedal now I can feel it in the steering wheel. It only happens in the first inch of the braking process, but it is odd that I can feel it there.

It feels as if they are connected by some sort of an air pressure or something. Sounds stupid, but describing car issues do sometimes.

Any help?

Possibly warped rotors or worn brake pads.

Brakes... thats what it means, or check the air in your tires... if they are WAY outta whack that could be part of the problem...

The Power Brake Booster Is called a hydroboost. your break system is not assisted by vacuum as other vehicles it is controled by your power steering pump. you may have low fluid I would check this first if you still have a problem or major leak have it checked out. I am not sure but I believe the system is self bleading due to the nature of the pump (positive displacement vaine type). you may loose all power brake assist if you let it go

There has been some problems on Tahoe's with vacuum problems to due with the brakes, as said by SS above have the problem looked at, but check your fluid first. :)
