You need to check the brake fluid reservoir under the hood and on the drivers side near the fire wall.You are likely way down on fluid due to worn out front pads,as they wear the fluid goes down because the void that has been created by the depletion of brake lining material need to be replaced by fluid in the reservoir to keep the caliper piston in place next to the pad.The noise you are hearing is the worn out pad rubbing against the rotor and the light is on to tell you that you are down on fluid.Replace the brake pads,[or rear shoes]and top up the brake fluid.You need to put d.o.t.3 fluid in the reservoir right away before moving the car and then your next trip should be for brake repairs.

The brake light switch is mounted near the brake pedal. the squeak is from the piston rod going from the brake pedal to the brake booster. it is metal and a soft muffed squeak is common. if yours seems very loud it may need a little lubrication at the teraining c clip on the rods connecting end to the pedal

Why is it hard to push on the brakes


The most obvious cause for a hard pedal is simply not enough vacuum. Check the brake power booster by pumping on the brake pedal while the car isn't running. Continue pumping until you've "bled off" the vacuum from the booster. Hold the pedal down while you start the car. The pedal should go down a bit more beneath your foot. If it doesn't, then you should examine the connection between the vacuum hose of the brake power and the engine's vacuum.
Replace the brake power booster if the connection's fine, which would fix the hard brake pedal problem.

It may be your calipers need replaced. Check them for signs of wear. Look at the metal spring where the brake pads sit.
Apply tension to the pad and see whether you hear a pop. If you do, the brake pad is moving too much on the bracket. Replace the caliper. This could help the hard brake pedal.

When I break there is a strong, noise. Almost like a crack coming from either my brake clamps or the strut, when I break.


brake, dont break your brakes.
brake noise is a very bad sign, do not drive until you find the cause.
at the least the pad wear marker is making noise, (too thin pads)
warped rotors,? pedal pulsations.
cracked rotors, death soon.
pads down to metal, ditto
pad holding parts bad.
caliper sliders broken or fell out , loose or siezed.
bad wheel bearings?
suspension parts bad?
why not , not guess, why not have an ASE certified mech, look at it
just a look, not repair, sure you can afford a look.
after all if it's Brakes, its very very serious.

not only that , he can hear it , and feel it , as no one here can.

Breaklights not working


you need to check the brake light switch, which is located under the dash, just above the brake pedal rod.. when you step on the brake pedal there is a spring loaded switch just above it that is allowed to expand, thus making an electrical connection and energizing the brake lights.
