    1999 Subaru Impreza, I pushed my brake pedal to the floor before I turned the car on. Now I can no longer turn the car on or get the brake pedal to come back up. Now much lights are on. (Check battery, Check Engine, Check Oil, Airbags). The car ran fine 10 minutes ago. I hope something simple can fix this problem. any help is appreciated.

Make sure your front brake calipers and rear wheel cyls. have no signs of brake fluid leaks, and brake pads and shoes are in good shape, if ok most likely problem is the master cyl. needs replacement.

Add brake fluid to the reservoir and try pumping the pedal by hand it may get stuck to the floor, then look for any leaks in the line to the tranny, if it is stuck up try starting it in gear and shut it off immediately!

Hi oakleafwoodw, sounds as if the brake master cylinder has busted a seal allowing the brake fluid to leak by cylinder when you push the brake pedal giving you no or very little pedal is located under the hood on the drivers side firewall, you will see all the brake lines attached to it , remove those and the two bolts holding it on,take it with you to auto parts store for a rebuilt one , they will keep your core for rebuilding, other wise you pay a core charge., verify that they have the one you need before hand, get a quart of dot 4 brake fluid, hook it up, and bleed air from the brake lines starting with wheel cylinders in this order Right rear......left rear.....right front.....left front...making sure to keep fluid level topped off in the master cylinder during the whole bleeding process or you will pump air into lines....OK!! caution: you should not drive it until you have good brakes!! you said they still work but if you had to stop suddenly ,it won't do it.

you will have to remove the master and bleed it on the bench, connect lines from the ports into the master fluid, then bleed , then install the master and bleed it at the lines, still no pedal, bleed the system completely

This could be an indication of low brake fluid level or other malfunction such as ABS problems. Normally, the brake warning light comes on when the fluid level is too low or the hand brake is not completely 'off,' not only when the pedal is pushed.
If you have one of the chain auto parts stores in your area, they will probably check your car with a scanner at no charge; call them first.

Braking problems


The first thing you should check is the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. In case you are not familiar with this item it is located in the engine compartment right in front of were thr driver sits. It is usually high up and has a cap that is held on by a spring clip. Push the spring clip off to the side and lift the cover will be bale to see the brake fluid level. It should be close to the top of the chamber. if if
appears low, add some brake fluid to bring it close to the top. You can get brake fluid in an 8oz can at any auto parts store. Tip: Always keep the brake fluid can tightly sealed after use. It has a tendency to absorb moisture out of the atmosphere, which can freeze in the winter.

Adding some brake fluid ( if necessary) should help the pedal problem. However..... We must find out where the missing brake fluid is going. The brake fluid system is a closed system,ie, you do not
normally have to top off the master cylinder. What this means is you have a leak somewhere in the system. Best places to look is 1.) the master cylinder. Look for signs of leakage. 2. Each of the 4 wheels. There is a braking piston on each wheel. Look for signs of fluid on the inside of each wheel.

There is one other possible cause of no brake pedal and that would be a faulty master cylinder. If you press the brake pedal and hold the pressure you shsould reach aa point where the pedal will not go down anymore. if it gradually keeps going down, I would suspect a faulty master cylinder.

Hope this helps Good luck
