If you are talking about when you push the pedal you hear an air noise and the pedal is real hard to push then you most likely have a bad power booster. If your pedal is weak and goes low to the ground you most likely have a bad master cylider as well. Best to just change both. For that year model shouldnt cost much and not hard to install.
Sounds like your brake light switch needs to be replaced. It is attached to the brake pedal and should cost you around $20 from an auto parts store. If the fuses and bulbs are good there is a 99% chance it is the brake light switch. Hope this helps! Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.
You can adjust the switch by putting your thumbs on either side of the switch plunger and pushing toward the brake lever. The switch shaft will ratchet into the new position which is will then be depressed by the brake lever when it is the brake is not being depressed.
has your brake pedal seem to be stiffer than usual? the sound you hear is from the brake booster if it has a leak it will cause a noise but you would have a stiffer pedal because the booster is loosing vacuum.
