Question about GMC Sierra 1500
Jcakey: My name is Roger and I will answer your question for you. From what you describe the problem sounds like a bad vacum brake booster. A simple way to check is to do the following. With the engine off. Press on the brake pedal 4 or 5 times. This will deplete all vacum in the booster. Next start the engine while holding your foot on the brake pedal. The pedal should drop a couple of inches. If the pedal does not drop. The problem is the brake booster. When the booster is bad you will hear a hissing sound inside of the truck when you apply the brakes..
If the master cylinder is faulty you will wave mushy brake to no brakes.Your ABS and brake failure lights will be on. Should you need further help please just ask. I will be glad to help you. Please rate this answer as this is how we know your answer was useful.Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
