Make sure you bled the brakes so no air is in the brake lines. Refill with brake fluid.Have someone pump the brakes until they get hard at turn the bleeding nut behind the wheels at the caliper.Do this until the brakes are good and you can stop fairly easy. If the ABS light is on. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery with the engine off. Leave it for a minute or 2 and then reconnect it back. I hope this helps. Good luck.

My brakes feel hard and the abs does not work i dont think also no power steering looked at new ones at auto zone they asked me if it had vacuum boost or something makes me almost think the vacuum is bad...


It likely has hydroboost brakes. A bad power steering pump or a power steering pump that is low on fluid would cause all your problems. Is this gas or diesel?

2000 silerado sometimes brake pedel goes to floor on low speed stops


Brake pedal shouldn't go to floor for any reason. Check brake fluid level. If high, then there is a problem with the master cylinder.

If the fluid is low, add until the proper level and check for leaks in the brake lines.

Is there an ABS light on?

Can't get brake fluid from abs into lines after installing new brake line on a 2000 chevy silverado


I read this same problem all the time, the reason u can't bleed the lines is that a special tool is required that pluge into the ABS and holds the hydraulic valves in the ABS control open for bleeding, there is no way around this.

Why does the handbrake light stay on and flash


It's detected an issue with your braking system....
could be low brake fluid, worn brake pads, hose or cylinder leak, faulty ABS (usually lights up ABS light as well, but not always)
