Get under the dash and find the switch on the brake pedal, then give the piston that the pedal pushes on a shot of WD-40 or silicone lubricant.

Have you looked into your break master cylinder? you may be low on break fluid. My 2002 Spectra had that problem and I had discovered to that I had a leak in my rear break.
