Dodge neon brakes Sign In

2005 Dodge Neon SXT. My daughter rear-ended someone. The front end damage to the body and radiator/AC condenser has been an easy fix. However, the brakes don't work. They worked great pre-accident. Car has to be stopped by using the emergency brake. The power steering is also jacked. Is this a fluids issue? I'm no mechanic, but I have skills. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

! You've had an accident! So what's the real question? You fix what was physically damaged. Take you at your word brakes worked before and now don't so apparently since it runs it has broken a brake line and whatever you mean with power steering that too.

Don't drive this car till fixed please! You might find it's damaged a lot worse than you think?

Your driving the vehicle with no brakes? That isn't too smart.

Did you inspect the brake lines, power steering lines, and fluid levels for those systems? How does the brake pedal feel? You really shouldn't be learning how to do things on your daughter's vehicle that are major safety items. You should really have that vehicle inspected by your local mechanic. They might see something that you don't.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

simple first -
did you check fluid levels PS and brakes?
does thus model have ABS?
Are there any brake warning lights amber or red colored?
did air bags deploy?
have you scanned for codes?

I'm not driving the vehicle. I moved it from the street into my driveway.
