Peugeot 205 brakes not working

My wifes car appears to have no brakes. It was fine yesterday. I have driven it today. I can put my foot to the floor when I press the brake pedal.

Then I can sort of pump the brake and get some sort of brake working but not very well.

Any ideas?

If you can put your foot to the floor it means there is no pressure in the breaking system, if there are no leaks then check that there is fluid in the pot, if so then take it to a garage and get it checked out.

    It means one of your brake pipes are split, it happened to me on my 205 and i ended up in a hedge backwards, i suggest you park it on concrete overnight to see what sort of area the leak is.

Air is getting into the system hence the spongy feel to the pedal. The problem may lie with the brake assist system - have it checked professionally - brakes matter!

No heat, no a.c. help

it could be the fan motor resistor, i would check the main fuse for the fan on the heater. if the fuse is ok then the resister is either gone or has become unplugged.

Put your foot on the brake before you attempt to put it in gear. if that does not work the sensor that stops you from putting it in gear without using the brake has failed... check fuses first.
