    2008Chrysler sebring hardtop convertible, 3000 miles and brake petal went to the floor and I crqashed into our home doing considerable damage. Chryler has sent a rep to check on the car and it has now been ted up for 16 days and Chrysler will not give us any answers. They keep telling us things are tied up in the legal dept. We need our car repaired, This is my 6th new chryslet since 1996 and wilkl certainly be the last if Chrysler does not answer me soon.

    I had spongy brakes do to a wheel cylinder that went bad so replaced this and bled the system still the problem persists, so I then replaced the master cylinder, a caliper, and brake pads, still with no results. could this be a proportioning valve problem ? if there are no fluid leaks.

Ok most likely its NOT the brake booster, some of the most common reasons for your symptoms are: a leaking line or wheel cylinder, you may see fluid on the ground or on the inside of a wheel. If you cannot find any external leaks, remove the brake drums and carefully inspect for any evidence of fluid leakage from the wheel cylinders also carefully inspect the front brake calipers for any fluid leaks repair or replace with new parts never use used brake parts under any condition, and if the level in the master cylinder remains full you have no leaks any where, then you have a master cylinder that has failed internally, Change the master cylinder and bleed the system.

I have a 98 dodge Durango and the brakes are horrible! when going to stop it goes almost all the way to the floor and once you stop you can feel that the brakes just seem to "release" and even when holding...

if bleeding the brakes doesn,t help then it is the vacuum buster pump which apples and holds pressure to the brake cylinders, check pad or brake shoe wear

My brake peddel is spongee-soft, and goes to the floor if i prees hard?

when you push pedal hard & pedal goes to floor does brake light come on?
assuming brake fluid leval is ok & didnt run empty have you checked for a leak?
pulling all wheels & inspecting brakes,cylinders, calipers,& lines for leaks.
does the pedal pump up & feel ok with engine running?if so there is air in the system
if it does'nt change the way the pedal feels & no leaks are found & brake linings are ok & adjusted
properly than your master cylinder is leaking internally & needs to be replaced

Driver side rear tire wont turn on my 1995 Toyota Camry. Seems like the brakes are on when pressing the gas. Cant move car at all

Emergency brake could be locked up, you could have a bad caliper. If you live in snow area I would say rusty emergency cable and it is locked up, spray cable with wd 40 or a rust buster.

Brakes hiss when applied, idle raises slightly....

You likely have an internal leak in the booster. Unplug the vacuum line from the booster, plug the rubber line with a bolt or something and see if the eliminates he noise. If it does, then your booster is bad.

Good luck.

With regards to the brake lights, you need to replace your brake switch located under your brake pedal.

With regards to spongy pedal, sounds like air in the line you need to bleed the brakes via the bleed nipple on each caliper and check your brake fluid.

hope this helps.

Yes you have anti lock brake system. If you changed your pads and the brakes still seem really soft or when you hit them hard your car is still moving and not a real **** down then you most likely are getting air into the system somewhere. Also did you get the rotors turned or just changed the pads?

Losing brake fluid & have no brakes unless I pump them

quick tests to do to see if your master cyl is nackerd.

pull the valve on the brake buster out ( the 1 with rubber hose attached, and be gentle so as not to brake it)
check for moisture/ brake fluid on the valve. if there is mosture you will need a new master cyl.

you can also undo the master cyl from the booster and gently slide it forward and see if there is any fluid behind it and on the back off it if there is fluid you will need a new master cyl

good luck these checks are very easy and you should be ok to perform them
