Most likely the master cylinder is going out or has a small leak.

SOURCE: brake pedal goes to floor after bleeding the brakes many times

start off by pumping the peddle 25 times with engine off ... bleed the abs system (usually has bleeder valves near/on control unit). then bleed the rest as usual with engine off ... DO NOT turn the key on while bleeding abs brakes.

SOURCE: remove the rear brake drum on 2004 Dodge Caraven

No just make sure your emergency cable is off and take a large hammer an hit it around the edge or corner lightly and spin at the same time also try pulling with your other hand as you spin this is a technique all mechanics use its very unlikely that you will have to loosen up the shoes with a brake spoon.REMEMBER THE OUTER ROUNDED EDGE ONLY WHERE ITS THE THICKIST.

SOURCE: Intermittant instrument cluster

HIT THE DASH! The instrument clusters (gauges) have bad soldering joints. You can hit the dash above the cluster to jar it to connect. A hard hit. Many have this problem, and you are better off taking your instrument cluster out and soldering the connector pins on the back then purchasing a new one or taking from the junkyard. They are all the same, and fail with time if left unsoldered.

SOURCE: Headlights won't come on intermittently 2005 Dodge Caravan

Quite possibly the switch, Dodge minivans also have a front control module located under the hood, it attaches directly to the underhood fusebox, if a switch doesn't fix it I would look there.

How would I bleed brakes for a 1998 pontiac grand am gt?

Fill the master cylinder with brake would start from thevalve farest from the master cylinder first. Have someone pump up the brakes and hold the brakes to the floor while u loosen the bleedrer valve on the wheel. the brake pedal will slower go to the floor while pressure is being applied. tighten the valve then have your helper pump the brakes again till they get hard and hold them while you looseen the bleeder valve on the wheel again. Do this a couple of times in each wheel until the fluid runs steady out the bleeder valve, Then proceed to the next one.Good Luck!!!

try bleeding the master cylinder at the lines first as it indicates that there is still air in the pistons
loosen one line at a time and gently apply the brakes until any air bubbles come out tighten the line before releasing the brake pedal
do it for the other line and then bleed all the brakes starting at the longest line first and ending at the shortest line
