Question about 1994 Buick LeSabre

94 LeSabre Brakes

My brakes went soft and then the light came on. I checked the fluid, and it appeared low. My husband topped off the fluid and gave it a spin before the light came on, so it wasn't that. ????

The light will come on when it sees uneven pressures you probably have a master cylinder going bad or a leak somewhere look inside of wheels to see if you see any fluid leaking out

2005 chevy duramax 4x4 brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, ABS light on


You need to add BRAKE fluid. After that, blead your brakes. You need to find out where the brake fluid went. If there are no leaks, you need to check the remaining life on all four brake sets. If you have no leaks, chances are pretty good that you need new brakes.

E Brake Light Stuck On


Have you checked the bake fluid level in the brake master cylinder? If the brake fluid is low there is a sensor that will turn this light on to let you know there is a problem with your brakes.

I see you have a problem with the abs light coming on as well. Low fluid can cause both lights to come on.

Can you drive the car there and ask them to read the trouble codes for you. Make sure to right the numbers down so i can look them up and help you do the diagnostics to find and correct this problem.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My ABS light has been on for a while and today I hit the brakes and they turned spongy. Then I pushed the pedal some more and the brake pedal went right to the floor. Then the emergency light came on and I...


I hope you have enough sense to stop driving it and stop added brake fluid

Lets review:

ABS Light is on--You may have an ABS System failure,do we continue to drive it, no
But you did,you said awhile
Spongy brakes--normal,I don't think so
Brakes go to floor--how many things can cause that,maybe 2
Emergency Light--now were in big trouble,no brake fluid
Added Brake Fluid---no fluids are consumed on a motor vehicle
any fluid loss is from a leak and requires repair
You never top off any fluid,don't need to

You have an older vehicle with rusted out brake lines
You need to buy brake tubing,cut,bend,flair and fabricate new ones
No vehicle in history, ever had brake lines made for replacement

The abs light and brake light on my 1996 ram came on today. My brakes went soft and to the floor. I was barely able to stop. What is the problem


More then likely its a rear brake fluid leak. Check master cylinder resevoir. There are two compartments one for the front and one for the back brakes,if it is low there is a leak.

Hi:
All modern cars have a dual brake system, this way if you would happen to spring a leak in your rear brakes, your front brakes still work. When one system fails, you get a brake light. In your case, the first place to start your troubleshooting is to check the fluid level in the brake reservoir. If either the front or back of the reservoir is empty, you have a leak. If both are still full, the most likely problem is your master cylinder failing. If you think you have a leak, look at the inside edges of all 4 wheels, and look for signs of brake fluid .

This means your master cylender is low on brake fluid , top it off with brake fluid and that should solve your problem . You should find out where the brak fluid is going .

No brakes in my 1998 buick leSabre


running master low enought for brake light to come on, you might have got air into system, if that is the case you will have to bleed out the breaks. worse case, it would need a new master cyl.

Low brake fluid - need to know location of fluid container


you have to look carefully at the lids (tops) the one that has brake fluid should read DOT 4 or DOT 5 brake fluid only. i think that should help you find it.
