Brakes not working


Asked by Jul 26, 2016 at 04:32 AM about the 2003 Pontiac Grand Am SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have very weak brakes. I can sit and pump the brake about 10 times and
then I am ok but if I wait just a couple seconds I know longer have brakes. I
have changed out the passenger side caliber, master cylinder and brake
booster. Not sure what else it could be

Get a professional/mechanic to look at your braking system, you don't want to mess around with brakes that don't work.

Sounds like it has air in the brake lines. Get someone to fix it for you.


It sure does sound like you may have air in the system !
