The first step ALWAYS to adjust the REAR BRAKE SHOES. The parking brake should not go "out of adjustment" UNLESS the rear brake shoes are:
2. Have recently been replaced and not set correctly
3. Are out of adjustment due to wear.
Turning the adjustment nut (unlike what Autozone seems to imply) is the LAST thing you should do AFTER all other possibilities have been eliminated.
Adjusting the rear brakes can often be accomplished easily in an empty parking lot. Simply accelerate in REVERSE to about 5~10 MPH and stomp on the brake pedal. Repeat this 3~5 times. You will often discover afterward that your forward braking performance has suddenly improved and that Parking brake is now miraculously "back in adjustment."
No fuse for the brake lights. It they short out the filament inside the bulb that lights up will blow just like a fuse would. If you replaced a bulb and it blew out you have a short somewhere in that circuit. If the bulb simply doesn't light up you need to adjust the brake lamp switch or replace it. That switch is located by the brake pedal you put your foot on to brake
I would suggest that you adjust your rear brakes. Most likely you have drum brakes in the rear. When the rear brakes are out of adjustment (caused by not using "e-brake" when you park the car. The "e-brake" when applied keeps the rear brakes adjusted with a self adjusting mechanism.) the front brakes have to do ALL of the work to stop the car. In this case going down a steep grade for a long time simply overheated the front brakes. When the front brake pads overheat they get "glazed" and don't want to work anymore. Most likely reason for brake pedal going to the floor is the brake fluid was boiling. Hope this helps. Good luck.
have you replace the caliper? if you did then when you stop loose the bleder of the caliper and if pressure come out tie the bleeder again and haved your mechanic remove the brake master cylinder and see if there is any adjustment for the push rod or shaft behinf the master cilinder and loose the adjustment to make it short but if there is no adjustment then leave the master little loose and if this take care of it you might have a wrong master installed or just need to adjust the rod behind master good luck
