    need to know what you mean by "lose brake". Not a typical term used to describe a brake problem. Is the pedddle low? Trouble stopping? Noises? Need more info.

    A low pedal means you may need to bleed the brake system because you have air in the lines. DIsc or shoes? If you have rear shoes instead of pads put the car in reverse and slam on the brakes. That will readjust those shoes if they are too low. One other problem could be a bad vacuum canister. You can fix that yourself if you are mechanically inclined but not a fun job. A bad canister will eventually make it impossible to stop.

    Yes,, take the cover off the brake fluid resevoire and check to see if it is low. Look behind all the brakes to detect any leaks around the hub. You also could have a leak in a cylinder or a leak in one of the brake lines. Trace all the brake lines for signs of leaks.

Check the brake fluid level and make sure it is full. If the brake fluid level is good, you may need the brakes bled as there can be air in the line.

My 2008 sebring makes a loud clunk when you stop after u let off brake

this indicates a loose / worn suspension bush/s that is allowing a movement of the suspension components on braking or a reaction to braking
I suggest that you find an accredited suspension shop and have it checked out.

Brake lights are always on, Brake Pedal is loose.

There should be a switch on the brake pedal that controls the brake lights.
If the pedal is loose that should be fixed first.
Something must be worn out at the brake pedal pivot.
Hope this helps.

Brake lights not working all time could it be because loose pedal on xsara picasso

Definately a likely cause. The brake lights are controlled by a switch that is located next to the brake pedal. When you push the brake pedal, the switch moves and turns on the lights. If your brake pedal is loose or the switch is not aligned just right, it could cause your brake lights to fail intermittently.
