Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer
One of your sensors is out on your ABS system. What will work until you want to fix it is to pull the fuses for the abs( the one from under the hood) and theres one you can pull from the fuse box on the left side on the dashboard. you will not have abs braking but the petal will not get hard and unless you drive in snow its not a ploblem driving without ABS

Check the brake light switch at the pedal. However an overheated/melted
bulb base means arcing to me. So, BOTH sockets are probably slightly
corroded & rusted. You fix that by scraping the terminals inside
the socket with a pocket knife or screwdriver. Clean with alcohol or
contact cleaner. If the new bulb isn't tight, and can be moved back and
forth by hand, bend the contacts inward slightly, but don't snap them,
they are spring steel. I was wondering when somebody would ask this
question. I fix them at least to once a month - not the same car, but
all GM's, and when fixed, they're good. Use logic if centre
safety/brake light works.
The remote start sounds normal. There are many different types and they are quirky.
You should scan for codes with an OBD II scanner. If the problem was in the brake light connections or is fixed at the pedal, erase codes. It could be, by coincidence, and in no relation whatsoever to this problem, that a front wheel bearing sensor has gone - they do that, and require a new hub assembly.

I would be looking at the ABS valve. one way to test the booster is to start the vehicle while you ae depressing the brake pedal, you should feel the brake pedal drop a little bit, this is a sign that the boostr is working properely. you may want to check to see if there is any air in your system as well.
hope that this helps.

this is the coming problem with '98 chevy trucks. abs system failure. you might need to replace complete abs unit and properly bleed your brakes. before you replace abs control unit you should pull the abs codes.

Might check around the big black round muffin shaped chamber adjacent to the master cylinder for a loose vacuum hose or crack therin; the hissing sound seems likely to be the air rushing in as you loose the vacuum that supplies the power to assist your braking effort (power brakes)---as this goes, so goes your peddle until it reaches the actual piston pushing the brake fluid (which should be firm like with non-power brakes).
...maybe have an assistant push on the peddle while you listen with a piece of hose or a stethescope to find the leak (or I suppose the power unit diaphragm could be shot/leaking--hence replacement), but since you said after bumpy road etc, one could hope for a simple dislodged vacuum hose or fixable crack.
