1st check the bulbs, but if they went out at the same time it's probably the brake light switch that needs to be replaced.

All three brake lights went out at the same time on my 2006 cadillac cts found 15 amp blown fuse in rear fuse box. Replaced twice and as soon as we push on brake pedal fuse blew again.

You have a dead short to ground somewhere on the feed circuit to the brake lights . Your best bet ,take it to a automotive electric shop. Or search finding electrical short on youtube ,an try your hand at fixing it yourself.

My brakes paedal went to the floor and the brake light came on with I P on the top. The pedal is very soft. I filled the master cycl. and pump the brakes they cam up but a few seconds later they were soft...

Well, the fluid sounds like it is going somewhere. Look on the ground.
Could be a line that blew, or a hydraulic brake component that is leaking.

I would leave it up to a brake service professional to repair this problem, which is beyond just adding fluid to the master cylinder.

Brake systems can be complicated to repair properly when the pedal gets to the point of going to the floor and the brake light going on which is always a bad sign of impending bills to repair either with parts or with brake expertise.

If you have more specific questions on the braking system I would be happy to answer.

I went over a deep pot hole with my front left tire and now my ISB light and traction off light are on. I also had a grinding sound when I pressed the brakes, although it's not all the time. What could it...

just remove front brakes and see if abs or brake sensor is bad or bent. the grinding may be worn down brakes. or something is bent. yes you can do this, just take it slow.

Speedometer quit

The speed control sensor is disconnected it is located on the transmission. I think someone did not connect a harness or it came loose or it is damaged

I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD LT with Duramax Diesel. I have recently lost all brake pressure and can depress brake pedal all the way to the floor. My ABS light came on yesterday while spinning...

Unless you really know what you are doing it is best to get a mechanic to repair this. People's lives and safety are at risk and you could be held legally if something went wrong with your repair job. I would not touch it.

Speedometer,mileage does'nt work,abs,traction,brake lights r on

no it does not; this is a massive short in the electrical system and, requires the services of an auto electrician like myself.
take the car in to an ASE certified auto electrical shop and, stop spending money on temporary fixes
the technicians can read the schematics and, fix your car right

Turn Signals and Highbeams don't work

I just had this happen to me. The computer flashed "ABS system failure" and my steering wheel controls went out, and the wipers, and turn signals/high beams. The really weird thing is that some of the dash went out (i.e. the temperature went out, but the clock didn't).

I figured this was a computer problem, so I just pulled the fuses (the ones under the hood) and put them back in. The computer still flashes "ABS System Failure" but the car runs perfect.
