BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 2006 Buick Rainier AUTOMOBILES

Hydraulic Brake Systems -> Description -> Hydraulic Control Valves -> Master Cylinder
Vehicle: 2006 Buick Rainier CXL 4.2 L6 GAS

Master Cylinder

Some vehicles use a conventional tandem master cylinder with two hydraulic pistons operating in-line. The primary piston controls the front brake system and the secondary piston controls the rear brake system.

Other models use a master cylinder that operates the same as the conventional master cylinder, but also incorporates a quick take-up feature in the rear chamber to reduce excessive pedal travel which may result from increased fluid displacement required to move the low drag caliper piston out against the rotor.

The quick take-up uses a spring-loaded ball check val...

TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM PROCEDURES FOR 2006 Buick Rainier AUTOMOBILES

Description
Vehicle: 2006 Buick Rainier CXL 5.3 V8 GAS

The TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitor System) notifies the driver when a significant loss of tire pressure occurs in any of the 4 tires.

When the vehicle is stationary, the sensor is inactive. When the vehicle is operated and as the vehicle speed increases, centrifugal force activates the sensors internal accelerometer causing the sensors to go into rolling mode. In the rolling mode, the sensors read tire pressure once every 30 second and transmit the reading once every ...
