You could have a leak in the vacuum hose that is attached to your master cylinder.

the brake master cylinder is aided by a vacuum coming from the engine, if the engine dies, the brake is stiff as well as if the hose is damaged, it is just like the engine dies also.

check your brake master cylinder and trace the big black hose attached to it going to the engine,

inspect for cracks or damaged or leaks.

replace if necessary.

Brake Lights dont work all the other lights do. Checked the fuses and replaced the bulbs but still no prake light. Can you help me please?

This is a common problem if all the wireing is good the next step is to replace the brake light switch located on the brake pedal arm.

No brake lights,,,where is brake light switch ??

Check the fuse first.most often placed on upper end of the prake pedal linkage, and fitted to the framework,and actuated by the brake arm.The switch may be adjusted,and will have 2 wires hooked up.Its just a push button switch that completes the circuit when you use the brakes.
If you dont see it there,look on the brake master cylinder for a pressure switch with 2 wires.

I replaced a brake line this morning in a 1991 S-10, bled the brakes and cannot get the pedal to stiffen. We bled the brakes with the truck off and they seem to stiffen a little and then we start the truck...

Make sure that you loosen the bleeder then have someone step on the brake pedal while you tighten the bleeder valve at the rear wheels. You may have to do that a couple of times. If you bleed the fronts there can still be air trapped at the rear which is why I say bleed from the rear wheels. If it seems like this is not working, you may have a bad brake master cylinder.

Shifter wont disengage from park-replaced park brake switch,but no help

you need to check to make sure the brake lights work, also the brake light switch is the switch not prake-brake switch, the switch is located above the brake pedal no the bracket that holds the pedal.first thing is to check all your fuses.

94 s 10 jimmy 4wd vortec brakes stiffen up sometimes unexpectedly and the pedal refuses to go down... any advice?

when brakes get stiff can you push down with both legs to get brakes to work? 3 things check vacuum line to brake booster. Brake booster may be about to fail. Replace brake booster and master cylinder.
