check that the vacuum line is feeding the servo any leaks in the vacuum line will stop the brakes from working abs relays on the pedal pressure to activate abs, if you can hear a hissing sound from the servo then the servo is leaking inside this is if the vacuum line is not damaged, use a pipe or screwdriver on the case and put to your ear and you should hear if its hissing or not.
