What could be wrong ?? first push of brake pedal is excellent, second push is hard with no braking, drive for 5 minutes then pedal is good again on first push then second hard again, vacuum is working


You mention vacuum is working, but the symptoms point straight at the power assist for the brakes being faulty, probably the vacuum accumulator. I'd stop driving it and get it looked at ASAP

My 05 sts driver side break ligth dont work


Never push the brake pedal down when the spring brakes are on. If you do, the brakes could be damaged by the combined forces of the springs and the air pressure.

My antilock brakes and traction control ligths stays on and some times goes off for a few minutes at start up, how to check for this problem on a 1996 cadilac sts.


One of the sensors at the wheels are not working right. Located on the backside of the spindle look for a wire running to a black plastic sensor. It's possible it might have a crack in it or they are just getting old. ABS- for panic stops if light is on you will have normal brakes. Traction control- for wheel spinning out or burn outs slows motor down so wheels get traction if light is on next time you stab the gas you will have a nice burn out. (Normal driver)

When apply brake car not stoping (cadillac 2001 STS car )


you need to bleed all four corners and when doing so use a hose from the bleeder valve into a clear jar half full of brake fluid. Keep The Hose Under The Level Or Air Will Get Back Into The System.
When Bleeding Close The Valve And Have Someone Push The Brake Pedal 1,2,3 Hold Then While The Person Is Still Holding The Brake Slightly Open The Valve Then Keep Doing It Until You Don't Even Get A Bubble. Do This On All 4 Wheels And You'll Be Good To Go.
The More Air That Comes Out The Harder The Pedal Will Get. Make Sure To Keep Filling The Reservoir Cause If It Empty's You'll Have To Start All Over.

Sincerely,
Michael Scott
