You could have a vacume leak. If so your engine will probably be idleing rough. Check the hose coming off the booster going to the engine.

SOURCE: 95 gmc sierra 4X4 brake pedal very hard to push.

I think I would be looking at the vacuum booster for the brakes having a leak. Block off the vacuum line and try the brakes again. Make sure you have lots of room to stop. If the booster is bad then the pedal will still be hard but the RPM's and hissing should go away. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1999 GMC Yukon, Do I need to replace the stop

Hey do-it your-selfer are your brakes O.K. Do you have to push youpedal down "real hard to the floor" after you hung all these parts on your Yukon! If so check to make sure the vacuum line is hooked up to the booster. Anyway the brake switch itself is not that hard. You can remove a panel under the steering column to get more room. Pull the switch up from the brake pedal bracket till it comes out. Install the new one, connect the wires. If you push it in to far, put both feet under pedal and gently pull up, you'll hear it set itself. Have someone check brake lights while you step on pedal. Good luck, best regards.

Brake pedal is hard when vehicle is not running,but is soft when the 2005GMC Envoy is running.changed the brakes and rotors?

This sounds like a vacuum or hydrolic issue. If The pedal is spongy soft while its running it indicates air in the brake line, or faulty master cylinder, or faulty brake booster. A faulty master cylinder would get hard after a few pumps of the pedal. Since the pedal is hard when it is shut down, it makes me lean toward the brake booster.

My brake lights on my 99 gmc yukon are not working what could be wrong? i have checked all the fuses and all of them work i also checked the bolbs and they are working aswell

Change the break light switch under the brake pedal. I have a 97 yukon and it's probably the same, it is really hard to get to. You have to take off the panel under the stirring wheel then look directly behind the brake pedal, it's a big white plastic piece you have to to unplug it. It took us an hour to get it off
