Brake Pedal Soft, ABS and Brake Warning Lights On

Asked by bobw79 Dec 16, 2013 at 12:24 PM about the 1998 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My brake pedal all of a sudden went soft as I was coming to a stop and my ABS and brake lights are on...I still have stopping power...but something is definitely wrong...after $300 my mechanic said he bleed the lines and some air came out...however he thought it was fixed...the mechanic said if it happened again he would have to change the master cylinder? Is he right?
