Check the fluid level and add the correct type listed on the cap of the master cylinder first.

I have a 95 nissan pathfinder and the brakes do not work at all. To the floor and no slowing down. Im not leaking fluid and I've attempted bleeding but it seems there is no movement of fluid anywhere

If the brake lines arent leaking, the wheel cylinders arent leaking, its possible its the master cylinder or the ABS assembly is bypassing to have a mechanic look at it as they have special pliers that can pinch off, and not damage, the rubber flex hoses to the calipers and rear end

Why arent my 2003 honda accord taillights working

If you mean running lights (not brake lights) check fuses first, then bulbs, wiring connection in trunk, light switch. If you mean brake lights, check fuses, brake switch at brake pedal, grounds at lamps, bulbs.

On 2002 jeep laredo brake lights dont turn on if lights arent on

That does not make any sense. Do the tail lights work? There are supposed to be separate filaments for brake lights, tail lights, and turn signals. In particular the center brake light should not be possible to be confused with tail lights or signals. Does it come on? If not, then you probably have no brake lights at all, and that is probably because of the bad fuse or the switch on the brake pedal for the brake lights.
If there is some sort of cross over between tail light and brake lights, that is usually from a bad light socket ground; which results in current backing up from one system to another. But then each is usually only half brightness.

Braking problem after front assembly removal

Sounds like you didn't get something aligned correctly, or your caliper slider pins are frozen, and not moving correctly. They have quite a few problems with the pads being installed incorrectly also. One pad has a short tab on top, and one a longer one. It's been a while since I have done one so I can't remember which goes where. Look at the anti rattle clip in the caliper, and short with the long side of the clip, and long with the short side.

My brake lights arent working!

Normally you'll find a brake switch at arm of brake pedal, up under dash. Switch should have 12v going in one side, when pedal not pushed, and both sides when pedal is pushed.

Brake Light Problem -1997 Chevy Lumina

The ground wire in the trunk area, coming from the brake light harness, might have come off or really loose. Hope this will get your lights working again. Best wishes.
