Question about Chevrolet Monte Carlo
The vacuum lines are okay, does that mean you bleed the brakes, do you know it takes two people to bleed the brakes,the easy way is to remove all wheels or one at a time, you will need the 3/8 standard tube wrench so that you do not round off the grease fittings, one person in the car pumping the brakes and another letting the air out of the line you will need to do each brake about 4-5 times to in sure balanced pressure, you mite want to drain the old fluid out of the brake fluid tank and lines, and also the punchers in the drum brake
because they need a good seal so it will not suck air when you apply brakes, replace the springs they be warning out, cracked, what ever.
do a rebuild of brakes, but you are doing all this work you mite think of doing a whole brake job it going to save you a lot of problems down the road, do it right the first time and do not worry for another 50000 miles, you only talking fluid, brakes, brake kit, 50-70 USD and you time. if you need video help here is a site for you

There are springs in the master cylinder and the power booster.
Could be one of them. You would disconnect the master cyl from the booster to test.

SOURCE: Brake Lights Not Working ...
Hello all; I figured out this one; it is indeed the turn signal switch. There are plastic tabs that hold the whole assembly together under constant friction when you use the turn signal. They eventually wear out. I was able to fix mine on my own. I had to take the air bag out and everything! The easy way to figure this out is to take out one of the brake lights from it's mount, lay it in the trunk connected and fold the seat down, so you can look back and see it go on as you pull the turn signal lever slightly towards so and step on the brake. That's how you know it's your turn signal control. you can either replace the control or fix it with washers and lithium grease like I did. It wasn't really hard. I used the Haynes manual and bought a stearing wheel puller. Still cheaper than the dealer or repair shop. I paid $60 overall.

This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana
