Question about GMC K2500
The brake pedal goes to the floor because there is no pressure in the system. Either the brakes need to be bled, there is a leak in the system, or the master cylinder is bad. Check the fluid level and then look at each line and caliper to see any leaks. If no leaks are found and the fluid is at the proper level bleed the brakes starting with the furthest caliper from the master cylinder and work to the closest (passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front, driver front).

Possible leak in brake system. if not then you have a bad master cylinder. have to replace it.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.

Hi I'm litoshop if you bled the system and get no results then your brake pump needs to be replaced now before replacing make sure your pads are installed correctly because if there not this to can cause this problem good luck. if this information has been useful please let us know thank you.
