SOURCE: parking brake pedal goes to floor

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.

have you bled the brakes? If you have, you may need to do it again as there sounds like there's an air lock in your lines.

SOURCE: My brake pedal is on the floor and the brake fluid

You will need to carefully inspect the entire brake system for leaks. Inspect the front calipers, rear wheel cylinders, all the hoses, the back of the master cylinder, and steel lines. If something looks wet or drips brake fluid it is leaking. If you haven't seen any brake fluid dripping from under the car my first thought is that the rear wheel cylinders are leaking.

If the pedal went to the floor and you didn't have to add fluid than you would more than likely have a bad master cylinder but since you are adding fluid there is a leak somewhere.

1992 Buick Park Ave. won't start after pressing brake pedal.


sometimes the other switch is to cut out the cruise control when the brake is applied. I would more suspect something in the fuel injection controls such as a mass air flow sensor or throttle "switch." your car is probably too old to have an auxiliary air bypass valve but if it has one look at it as well. good luck

Sounds like you may have a hydraulic leak somewhere. Check the rear wheel cylinders and front brake hoses going to the calipers.
