Brake pedal issues with ABS light, Help!!!

Hi Forum,

I need help with a little issue Im having with my brake system, First the brake pedal is hard to stop and then it goes completely down to the floor with no pressure at all. Truck stops good but once stop it seems the pressure is leaking or been relief to fast. I was told it might be the brake master cylinder. Also my ABS light is coming on more than before, usually it will come on when I was in cruise control, the truck will jerk a littler and then all the needles in the panel will reset to zero specially the speed gauge. Now the light is coming on just for driving around town.

I'm in the procces to change the fluid, brake pads and rotors? Any suggestion on brands? Any help will be greatly appreciated.. Thanks

So a little clue with these trucks.

The booster for the brakes amd power steering are linked. Check your power steering fluid level.

I know it sounds weird but let me tell you when a power steering pump goes out you loose brakes too. I've had it happen 2x while pulling 5000 #'s.

If its not low, then would guess master cylinder is on its way out. As far as the ABS light, check the wires attached in the wheel well and make sure there's no chaffing. The sensors are cheap and easy to swap out if needed.

Oh and when doing brakes check the pistons in the calipers. Every time I've had brakes start grinding early in the day, the calipers were shot within 50 miles.

Thanks Snow-Mow,,
I will try that, I just bought new brake pads and rotors and in the process of changing them and fixing the problem. The power steering fluid level seems fine, will try the master cylinder next. Thanks for the info, very informative. Amazing how can someone learn something new everyday!!!!
