Mushy brakes can be from air in the system or weak rubber brake lines expanding under pressure. I would try bleeding the brakes starting at the longest line first

If there is no switch present then it is full time 4X4, it does not disengage, good for travel bad for fuel mileage.

SOURCE: 2006 chevy trailblazer replace 4wheel drive selector

i've got a 2003, and i believe the parts and procedures are the same for the years. there are screws in the dash trim by the ciggarette lighter, and more on the underneath of the dash pad where the gauge cluster is. then carefully pop the dash trim out. there are retaining clips that hold it in besides the screws. they should pop out without too much effort. i'd start near the radio and be careful. there also may be two more screws near the bottom of the steering wheel that you'll have to remove the trim below it to get at.

It is probably the actuator that locks in the hubs.

My brake lights stay on while driving my 2008 chevy 1500 Silverado any solution


I've seen lots of problems with brake switches on these style pickups. Usually they stick on. That also prevents you from being able to set your cruise control, because the engine computer sees that the brakes are on, when they're really not. If you have access to a scan tool that can read codes and data, there should be a Diagnostic Trouble Code stored in the engine computer related to the brake switch. You can also verify by looking at data in the scan tool that the switch is actually staying "applied", when it really should be "released".
If you don't have a scan tool, reach under the dash by the top of the brake pedal and unplug the brake switch. If your brake lights turn off (ignition key has to be on for brake lights to work), then you've found your problem.

When i push on the brakes,it makes a semi loud hissing air sound. They go almost to the floor and about kill the motor. And i hardly have any brakes.This is on a 1997 chevy 4wheel drive suburban.


The diaphram in the vacuum power brake assist unit is probably bad. Unit will have to be replaced. That may or may not take care of the low brake pedal issue. If not that problem will have to be diagnosed once the vacuum problem is solved.

Brakes mush to the floor at times. Some times


May be air in the brake lines.
Bleed the brakes. Most brake shops do a lousy job. If you have it done make sure they test drive the car before you pay. If the brakes are still mushy, take it back and make them do it right or get your money back (all of it).
Very difficult to do by yourself, you will need an assistant if you haven't done it before.
Yes, there are one-man bleeders, not for first-timers.
