Question about 1989 Buick Electra
First check the brake fluid. If low, add to the full mark and check for leaks- fluid should never normally need adding. If the brake reservoir was dry, you will have to bleed all four brakes.
If the fluid is not low, then probably the brake master cylinder has gone bad. The internal seals can give out and won't make pressure.

You need to have the brakes bleed, there is air in the system, a special tool is required to bleed them, it holds the gate valves open in the ABS

There could be 2 reasons that the pedal would go to the floor.1 -there is air in the system.If no one has taken a line loose then it will be #2 -the brake master cylinder has gone bad and will need to be replaced.Ther will be directions on how to do this proporely with the replacement unit.if you need further assistance let me know.

I hope you have enough sense to stop driving it and stop added brake fluid
ABS Light is on--You may have an ABS System failure,do we continue to drive it, no
But you did,you said awhile
Spongy brakes--normal,I don't think so
Brakes go to floor--how many things can cause that,maybe 2
Emergency Light--now were in big trouble,no brake fluid
Added Brake Fluid---no fluids are consumed on a motor vehicle
any fluid loss is from a leak and requires repair
You never top off any fluid,don't need to
You have an older vehicle with rusted out brake lines
You need to buy brake tubing,cut,bend,flair and fabricate new ones
No vehicle in history, ever had brake lines made for replacement

Have you lost brake fluid since changing the pads...? Did you have to bleed or disconnect the brake lines when installing the pads? Sounds like a fluid leak...you should be able to trace this...If no fluid leak, did you open the system at all when installing the pads? If so, probably air in the lines...let me know if you need help bleeding both front sides...If no exposure to open lines, and no fluid loss...then the master cyclinder is bad...probably not the booster...let me know:)
