WHAT ARE BRAKE WARNING LIGHTS?
Emergency brake may be on or you have a serious drop in your brake system's hydraulic pressure. This is a warning light that could be telling you that your brakes are near total failure.

WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE I HAVE A HARD BRAKE PEDAL?
When functioning correctly, brakes require you apply pressure to make them function. When it is hard to press the brakes this may be an indicator of power brake trouble, restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings.

WHAT ABOUT A LOW OR "SOFT" BRAKE PEDAL?
If your brake pedal nearly touches the floorboard before the car actually stops… or some people describe it as feeling "Spongy". Your brake warning light might come on when you push brake pedal in this circumstance. This problem could require a simple adjustment or it may be something more serious.

MY BRAKES FEEL LIKE THEY ARE STICKING, WHY?
This is when your brakes are dragging, it feels like your brakes are "sticking", or the wheels feel hot, or your engine seems to have lost power. Brakes are probably failing to release (Let go of the disc/drum); the condition can also reverse itself, which leaves you with no brakes at all from the constant wear of the brakes.
