Ounds like you have a air leak via the vacuum system of the brakes ie servo / inlet manifold get the car to a garage to have it insoected unless you now someone in the trade that can look at it for you but it sounds to me like that or have a second person handy open the bonnet and start the car press the brake and visually see if anything is catching the cable or listen for leaks ie hissing noises

Does the 4x4 "actually" work because this is a signal that the system has a problem. Its like a check engine light that comes on or flashes when there is a problem with the engine or emission system.
