The initial push on the brake pedal doesn't provide full stopping power, it just depresses enough to assure you that, yes, you have hit the brake pedal, but now you have to hit it harder. Pressing down through this hesitation allows the brakes to catch fully.

You may be at the end of the life for your brakes and or rotor / drum. If you can take it to a brake shop they usually will look at it for free.

When I get on brakes they "kick" back

Check brake discs, maybe they are damaged. If they are not in balance, they could kick back when braking, and when u press harder, then kicking stops.

What you have is brake debris in the sensor area. The hesitation is just the Traction control working. The Traction control is suppose to limit one wheel from spinning faster than the other. It does this by interrupting the engine and applying the rear brakes to the faster spinning side.

Most likely you have brake debris from the emergency brakes blinding the sensors. The rear E brakes are hidden from view and are actually small drum brakes inside the rear rotors.

Hesitation in acceleration on my 92 audi 80 quatto

Run the car fo a while. Turn it off and wait about 30 seconds. Pull the hose off the booster. You will hear a loud rush of air entering the booster to fill the void. If not the booster is leaking. It will also cause all sorts of idle and off-idle acceleration problems. Did you check the hose from the engine to the booster? Was there a chack valve in the line too?

1991 Chevy S10 The BRAKE light came on. What does this mean?

either the park brake is on a little bit or its low of brake fluid, if its low then it could be a leak or it could be that the calipers are pushed out a bit meaning time for new pads

My ABS keeps kicking in everytime I brake

did you bleed the brake lines after the brakes were fixed also low grade tires or even high grade tires can ocassionaly cause the problem you should also check for a leaking piston seal on the calipers and also check the brake components for contamination from grease and oil and check that the proper clearances were set when re installed also check that the the auto adjusters are working properly lastly take it to a dealer and have them check the master cylinder thats all i can think of
