SOURCE: Brake pedal goes too far

You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: brake pedal goes down to far very intermittently.

The fact that you say it is an intermitant problem makes me think your new master cyl is no good. If it happened all the time , I would suggest bleeding the system , and adjusting (tightening) the rear brakes.
If it is the Master , I would expect you would loose a bit of fluid , but you might not see any because it would be leaking out the end of the master and into the booster unit.

2004 dodge ram 1500 brake lights not working when truck is running


When truckis not running, brake booster is not functioning and therefor the pedal goes down further and the brake switch functions. When running and booster is working pedal does not go down so far and light switch is not released enough to work. Adjust light switch at brake pedal.

On my 1990 ford f150 i have to press the brake pedal down real far to get my break light to come on it seem to work fine when truck is not running only when i start the truck up


Above the brake pedal arm is a small switch with a rod sticking out toward the brake arm. This is the switch that controlls the brake light. You can loosen the nut and turn the unit to adjust it. It won't take much adjustment to change the action of the switch. It should be so when the brake pedal is depressed 1/2 inch the brake lights are activated.

No brake lights, rest of lights are fine


Look under the brake pedal, up near where it is connected. You'll have to get down in the floorboard. Push the pedal all the way down and see if the button contact is being pressed when you do. If it isn't, loosen it and move it up or down until it is. If it is being pressed in far enough for contact, it is most likely a faulty switch if you are certain the fuses are alright.

Brake problem with 95 ford bronco


does it still brake when the pedal goes to the floor. my guess is it is leaking fluid out of the rear brake cylinder. the rear brake cylinders are in side the drums so you may not notice a leak there.i would take off both rear wheels and take the drums off and see if there is a leak out of the seal on the brake cylinder. that is a fairly common problem with all drum brakes and the cylinders are only about 12 bucks at napa.
