Last night when I was out trick or treating with the kids, the break light came on the dash board and the breaks became very spongy....I have to hold the break right to the floor to stop....and I can not find the break fluid place to put more in.

if you follow your brake pedal up under the dash there is a switch up there that is triggered when you push on brakes. possible this switch is stuck or out of adjustment. if it is not this switch could be wiring problem
Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.
is the break pedal soft or spongy is so check the level if low then check the lines and wheel cylinders for leaks if no leaks and good brakes and if the truck has anti-lock breaks it is more likly to be a abs sensor but also if no leaks and soft pedal could also be the master cylinder. if hard pedal then check the lines on the booster but that does not make the light come on. hope this helps
hi, this sounds like you have a bad earth at the rear lights, remove both rear light clusters and check for any signs of corrosion, give all connections a clean and a little tweek, this should cure your problem
The reason for spongy breaks is because there is an air pcket tuck somewhere in the system. you will need to blead all the lines. start from the passengers rear thank go to the drivers rear than the passangers front than the drivers front. You need to kep fluid in the resivour while doing this. and you will need to look for a steady stream of brake fluid before closing the bleader valve or yo will not get the air pcket out of the line.
