It could be either your discs need changing as the suface area is bad one or 2 pads are low or you have brake cables that are old and expand under pressure taking it away from your calipers or the manifold is failing and pressure getting out from there
this will put air in the braking system and will fail
i would go straight to a rep garage and get checked out tomorrow as its not just your life but others it can and will effect it they fail and sounds like they will

SOURCE: hard pedal low stopping power

Poor braking may be due to severely worn pads (disc brakes) or shoes (drum brakes), however, a common cause of "sudden" hard braking is the power brake booster either losing vacuum or failing, causing the brake sytem to lose the assist the booster provides and requiring a stronger effort by the driver to slow or stop the car by "standing" on the brake pedal with much greater force.

if a master cylinder is bad and you are sure you have all the air out and no leaks.pedal will go to floor , running or not. if booster is bad it will cause a hard pedal. but if master cylinder is bad it will turn on a brake light on dash if it works. make sure the wheel cylinders are not leaking. I beleive that the master cylinder is bad, or you have a leak somewhere. If the master cylinder is functioning properly, the brake pedal will depress to a certain depth and no further.

Brake pedal has alot of back pressure and car moves in gear.Have to press real hard to stop.How to check abs pump if has one where or brake booster or master cylinder?Don't know how to trouble shoot or...

The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

I replaced front and back brakes on my 1996 1500 Chev Suburban. Bled the brakes starting at the farthest line. The pedal is soft and travels too far. Does not seem to stop very good. What is the...

it sounds like there is still air in the brake system that has not been don`t say if you replaced the brake pads and shoes(in which case you shouldn`t need to bleed)or you replaced a brake line(s) or wheel cylinder or will have to keep bleeding the brakes all 4 wheels(trucks don`t use bi-directional braking meaning right rear brakes with left front and so on).bleed both rear brakes then bleed both front brakes,was this problem there before you replaced the brakes(soft pedal noticed) and this is why you changed the brakes or the pedal was soft and the brakes needed changing.its possible that the master cylinder has an internal leak and may need replacing.

It has new brakes but the abs light came on and now the brake pedal is hard and I barely have any brakes

If the person who did the brakes did not release the bleeder screws on the front brake calipers to prevent pushing brake fliud back into the anti lock hydralic unit when retracting the brake caliper pistons they may have damaged the anti lock unit. Try doing a complete beed out of the brake fluid front and back to regain function.

Brake fade on a honda accord

here are the possibility, air in the brake line, brake line has a hole, no brake fliud, master brake cylinder bad.
need to bleed the brake lines and see if there is ahole in any of the brake lines. if not, then your master brake cylinder need to be replaced.

Boiling brake fliud with continous braking when driving
