Either pump or brake hydroboost has gone bad.. if you did not dump fluid. if you dumped fluid you most likely broke a hose

SOURCE: power steering went out along w/brakes

Ditto to the above poster. Your brakes work off the hydroboost from the powersteering pump. There is no brake booster per say. There is a recall on the brake system on certain HUMMER's. Not sure what year your's is but maybe worth looking into. This is for '04-'05 HUMMER's.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 05V043000 www.nhtsa.dot.gov
Manufacturer GENERAL MOTORS CORP. Recall Date: 2/08/2005 Potential Number Of Units Affected: 155465 Description SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC Summary CERTAIN TRUCKS, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND VANS EQUIPPED WITH BOSCH HYDRO-BOOST BRAKE ASSEMBLIES, THE HYDRAULIC BRAKE BOOSTER PRESSURE ACCUMULATOR MAY CRACK AND SEPARATE FROM THE HYDRO-BOOST ASSEMBLY DURING NORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS. Consequence IF A SEPARATION OCCURRED AND THE HOOD OF THE VEHICLE WERE OPEN, FRAGMENTS FROM THE ACCUMULATOR COULD CAUSE INJURY TO PEOPLE IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA. THE PRESENCE OF THIS CRACK OR FRACTURED SURFACE COULD ALLOW THE HYDRAULIC FLUID TO LEAK FROM THE ACCUMULATOR CIRCUIT OF THE BOOSTER ASSEMBLY. THE LOSS OF FLUID WOULD CAUSE INCREASED STEERING AND BRAKING EFFORT AND A CRASH MAY OCCUR WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING. Remedy DEALERS WILL TEST THE HYDRO-BOOST ASSEMBLY FOR FUNCTIONAL OPERATION OF THE TWO-FUNCTION VALVE. IF THE HYDRO-BOOST ASSEMBLY FAILS THE TEST, DEALERS ARE TO REPLACE THE ASSEMBLY. THE RECALL BEGAN ON MARCH 23, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, GMC TRUCKS AT 1-866-996-9463 AND HUMMER AT 1-800-732-5493.

Brakes are spongy


Did you also bleed the rear brakes? Also try the gravity bleed method working from the right rear wheel, then left rear, right front, then left front. Be SURE to keep the master cylinder full at all times while bleeding.

How to change brake light switch


You'll have to drop the lower dashboard panel to access the switch. There are two clips on the bottom/back behind the pedals. One is white and behind the brake pedal, the other attaches to the left foot plastic floor mount. The white clip can be rotated to come off of the dash panel. The left foot floor mount can be removed with the recessed nut near the top and then separated from the dash panel. There are 5 screws affixing the dash panel to the framework. Two are obvious, on the bottom corners. One is accessible after removing the fusebox cover. The other two are next to the steering wheel and are accessible after popping the small shroud piece off from around the steering column. The shroud is held in place only by clips. After dropping the panel, the brake switch can be found at the top of the brake pedal arm. Disconnect the wiring clip from it and then turn the switch counterclockwise. It will pop out after about an 1/8 of a turn. Should be about a 20 minute job in total. Good Luck!

I bought a 1999 oldsmobile silhouette replaced brake pads and bled brake system . the brakes are still spongie abs light still comes on once in awhile..


If the brakes are spongy you will have to bleed the brakes again. It sounds like there is still air in them.
If you are doing it manualy make sure that the pedal is held down until the bleed screw is tight.
There is a brake bleeding kit that can be bought, this makes the job a lot easier.

My front brakes locked up and won't release all the way


check and see if someone has mistakenly put power steering fluid in the master cylinder. if so the rubber components will swell up and be really spongy.this occurs fairly often at quick oil change locations as most of the guys are inexperianced,many brands of brake fluid and power steering fluid are in nearly identicaly labeled bottles.if this is not he problem check to make sure nothing is keeping the brake peddle from returning to its stop.other possible causes of this problem are rusted and siezed brake caliper mounts. these need to slide freely

Brakes are still spongy after changing the pads, one caliper, and master cylinder. bled front brakes.


I just went to Brake Masters this morning and had them replace the Master Cylinder since I was experiencing the pedal very spongy and going to the floor. When they replaced the Master Cylinder and they gave me back the car, the brakes were still spongy and going to the floor. I addressed this to them and they took another look at it, but when I took it for a second time, the brakes were extremely spongy. It was almost like they gave me back my car in worst condition to when I brought it in. Can you help?

Lost power steering and brakes


I'd say you broke a serpintine belt if you lost them both at the same time. Check your belts and see if you're missing one... You should have breaks and steering, just manual... hard to steer and brake...
