I'm driving home today and the car is running fine and normal..And I decide to get on it a bit,it pulls fine and i look at my gauge it is sitting at 0.It wont move from there..I say weird so i decide to exit the highway and I noticed no brakes..Not your normal brake fluid might be low mushy brakes.NO.The pedal was stiff like when your car is off and you pump your brakes stiff.I check the fluids and what not it's normal.

SO i get it towed to the dealer being that I have the 7/70k warranty..I get there and the service advisor tells me that i'm lucky becaue i was 200 miles shy of 36k.So i laugh under my breath and tell him no i still got to 70k to go..

Anyways after a long battle with them about my warranty,I finally get put in a rental *a gay sebring by the way*.And now i'm home stuck with a rental :(

Sorry for the long rant,I still don't know what caused my brakes to malfunction.But i'll find out monday..

Sorry for the long rant..




ps.If any of your more mechanically inclined guy wanna input on what might the problem be,feel free to do so.THANKS :thumbsup:


pss.Handbraking while exiting a highway sucks ass when you don't know your brakes are gone

I see two good things to this post... 1 you didn't crash and hurt your car... 2 not as important you didn't crash and get hurt.

Gaurantee thats the problem right there. You likely just popped off your bake booster hose. The boost gauge tees off the booster, and that would also explain why the gauge reads -0-.

Well looks like I have some zip tying to do to keep those lines from coming off.
Thanks fellas.
And to answer your questions about mods,I only have a wga and they still didn't notice it.Even with the bright orange hose we used for it.*didn't have any black hose left*

its not that they dont notice it, but having a wastegate is not gonna cause ur brakes to fuck up, no connection there.

Yeah i clamped the one on the bottom of the intake mani and zip tied the Tee i heard its like OH SHIT when it happens so i did it to be safe. Actually they leak anyways if you dont zip tie. Anything over 17-18psi should have it done
