True, but how much for 2 or 3 after market. There are just some things you have to go dealer for.

What would make the red brake(!) light stay on ?? I replaced the front calipers, hoses, pads and rotors.

I would say you have air in the system. With ABS brakes you need to be careful not to let all the fluid drain out during repairs.
If you do you will need a ABS capable scanner to activate the ABS valves to bleed.

The light was on before doing the work. I bled the calipers as per the sequence in my repair manual.

#38 of 78 2005 Malibu Brake Pedal Problems & Diagnostics
Aug 08, 2008 (7:20 am)
I've been having a little problem with my brake pedal that I can't quite understand yet. Sometimes when I turn my car on, I'll hear a grinding noise from the brake pedal. Other times, I may need to push the brake all the way in with force in order to shift out of park.
The other day, a man stopped me and asked if my emergency brake was in. I told him no, and he proceeded to tell me that I had travelled through about 6 redlights and my brake light never went out while he was behind me. If I gave my pedal another forceable push, things would go back to normal for a few seconds; then my brake light would come on by itself again.
Someone at a dealership told me months ago he thought my Brake Sensor Module (the $20 part that goes under the dash) was going bad. I just now had it replaced.
I got through a day, then the light came on by itself again. Curiousity caught me, so I parked the car and used my pedal adjustment button to move the pedals back and forth a little bit. Then, boom! It's been fine since.
Why do I have to move the pedals again every once in awhile? Is something going bad? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!
