The seal in the master is going bad and the fluid is bypassing it on light pressure. the only cure is replacement

Handbrake light comes on when pumping brakes and pedal becomes hard, the vehicle does not stop. Replaced master cylinder and bled brakes


Hi Anton It would help to know what vehicle you have.
are you sure its the hand brake light and not the brake fluid level light? It may be they are using the same light for both.
I am assuming the brake pedal goes to the floor if you don't pump it? This is really an open question without knowing the history or seeing your vehicle. Things that may create this fault,
brake pedal spongy or goes to floor (1) Leak of fluid in system, air in system, Incorrectly adjusted brakes, Flexible brake hoses porous brake pressure applied hoses expand. Leaky wheel cylinder or calliper. Badly worn brake pads or brake shoes. Leaky brake booster (brake servo) You need to methodically go through each of these possible faults and rule each one out. Good luck

Power brakes ?


You have a failed brake master cylinder, you need to have it replaced and then the system bled of air. This requires special tools for the ABS brake system hydraulic control module.

My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor


Brake pedal goes to the floor? When does it happen. That is the most important piece of information. Most brake systems are power assisted via vacuum from the engine. Your brake booster is what makes the "power assist" work. There are some specific times when you will feel your brake pedal "fade" to the floor and it is normal due to the cycle of the brake components operation.If your brake pedal goes to the floor every time you step on it, stop driving and get to a repair facility! If the pedal is working when driving and the vehicle seems to be working as it always has, then chances are there is no concern. To be on the safe side, have it checked the next time you are in for any other type of service.There is a sensor inside most brake reservoirs that activates the indicator light in your instrument cluster when the level is lower than it should be. As your brake pads wear down, the system requires more fluid so the level at the reservoir drops setting the light. Same thing if there is a leak. The fluid level drops and the light goes on. This brake fluid leak would most likely be combined with a spongy pedal or a pedal fade every time you step on the brakes. A leak would also almost always have a wet area around the leak. Sometimes the leak can be internal to a part of the car you cannot see, so don't count on it.One easy way to check most brake boosters and the brake system for leaks is to turn the vehicle off and pump the brake pedal. Every time you depress the pedal you should feel the pedal "height" come up and the pedal get harder. After a few firm pumps of the pedal, hold it down. Leave pressure on the pedal for 20 seconds or so. Does the pedal move slowly (or quickly) to the floor? If so then there is a leak somewhere in the system. Keeping pressure on the brake pedal, start the vehicle. Does the pedal no drop? It should. That is the power assisted vacuum kicking in as the engine starts to run.The bottom line is that we are talking about your brakes. Your life, your passengers lives and the lives of others on the road around you depends on that system working properly. If you have any doubts, or feel uncomfortable, take it in to have it looked at. Know specifically what it is doing so that you can have your repair facility look at what you are feeling and tell you if

I have a 96 geo prizm. I have replaced the front and back brakes. I have bled the brakes and the foot pedal is firm for about the first4 days. After the 4 days the brake pedal gets really soft and you...


It sounds like master cyl. is drawing in air causing prob. also another test would bee too bleed out and get pedal back, now step on pedal and hold firmly and see if pedal creeps near floor indicating innternal leaking in master cyl. also have some one pump bakes slowly aand look for air bubbles in brake res. after bleed out indicating master cyl. is drawing air upon release of pedal.

My 03 trailblazer does the same thing and the service dept. told me that it was normal for this model to do that, it has never failed to stop but if your sitting at a red light you can feel the peddle go down to almost the floor but it stops fine and it has done this since day 1 and they say thats normal on the trailblazer.
