    not sure what you mean, i'll try to explain better

    driving down the road, stop sigh ahead, apply brakes and pedal goes to floor.
    pump a time or two, pedal comes up a bit but right front seems to lock up and pull car to right.
    when brake pedal is released all is normal until you have to brake again

    Master cylinder is "bypassing", needs to be replaced, you brake caliper is " locking up or hanging up" pulling your car one way, it needs to be serviced.

    disconnect the ABS. they mess up all the time on these cars. otherwise a car of this age requires repair $ that aren't worth it. the ABS system was a cheap, first generation attempt. ABS light will be on but brakes will operate as normal....easy fix.

Changed the master cylender and vacuum booster and blead the system by the book and still cant get breaks without pumping them.


There must be air in the system some where. i am not sure of the year ,make and model of this van and also not sure of the brake system, for example if you have drum brakes in the rear then first adjust them.
The next step is to fill the master cylinder, make sure there are no leak anywhere.Next step start at the master cylinder, at the line to master do not worry about abs system. have someone inside ready to pump brake pedal and hold.Have them pump pedal three times and hold pedal with a little pressure.make sure as you open the bleeder they push on pedal and keep foot on brake until you tell them to pump again. the pedal is to be pumped three times every times.
With pedal pumped start at master lines, open one allow to bleed a little then close and move to next and allow to bleed. if master has more than two lines then pump again and do two, open one and close then open two and close then pump again. After master is bleed a few times and no air comes out then move to right rear wheel, pump three times and hold while you open bleeder, this is to be done about four times to make sure you get a good flow of fluid with no air .
NOTE: always keep master cylinder full, check after each wheel. make sure the person pumping the brakes does not lift until you say and the bleeder is closed. After the right rear wheel you will move to left rear and then right front wheel and last is the left front wheel.
Make sure there are no bad wheel bearings, lift wheel of the ground and grab and check for movement by pulling wheel out and in from top to bottom, the last thing is make sure the caliper slides are free moving.
If the caliper does not slide on the bracket freely then the piston will not stay on pad and pedal will need to be pumped to get a pedal. good day.

If you have one not grabbing the the rubber hose to the caliper is clogged up. they deteriorate from the inside. I sugest that you replace both hoses on the front.

Brake pedal all the way to the floor...Possible abs module?


Im going to assume that a mechanic has already checked for the most simple causes like making sure the brakes have been bled. If the abs module is faulty it will default to just a no abs state, but that wont cause the pedal to go all the way to the floor. I agree that replacing the caliper is probably gonna fix the problem, but I might try to bleed the brakes first and see if that solves it first...

99 ford expedition, abs light stays on, front brakes seem to be dragging


When was the last time you changed the front brake pads?
Try this:
Keep the brake pedal pressed down and start the car, after it idles for about 10 second let go of the pedal. If the light comes on just as you leave the pedal - try pumping it a few times, turn the car off and pump the pedal some more until it becomes real hard.
Then, keeping your foot to the pedal, start the car.
Idle for about 10 seconds, let go of the pedal and press it again rel fast.
If the light doesnt come on again - it means you have a leak of some sort or that the main brake pump should be replaced.

Good luck.

Brakes feel spongy.when pressed hard goes nearly to floor.if pedal released slightly and pressed again feels normal.this is a 1997 toyota caldina GGT with abs.have bled brakes and sgimmed discs.any ideas?


Either you did not bleed the brakes properly or they need adjusted. (rear only) Front most likely are disks. If you put pads on the front and spread the caliper pistons, you should pump the brake pedal 10 or 15 times to move the pistons out. Some ABS systems are notoriously hard to bleed.
