1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT difficult to break

15

Asked by Jul 16, 2016 at 03:58 AM about the 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix 4 Dr GT Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is anyone familiar with the brake systems on
Grand Prix's? I just bought this car and am afraid
to drive it because I have to push the break pedal
all the way down to the floor to stop, and the
breaks only start engaging when the pedal is
pressed to a very low point, and they engage in a
week manner.
My ABS light is on, as well as two other lights next
to it... red with an exclamation point.
I am hoping someone might be able to know
what's going on.

I'm afraid you're not going to like your answer. A complete brake system inspection will be required. If you're lucky it will only require bleeding the brakes.

Sounds like it's dangerously low on brake fluid. Have it towed to the shop for inspection. The system will have to bled and leak checked! HTH. -Jim
