Check around brake pedal for something rubbing. If OK, I'd look into the master cylinder.

If the brakes on a Mazda 6 are squeaking, it could be indicative of a problem. The brake pads could be incorrectly set.

Could be inferior brake pads or glazed brake rotors. If the new pads were installed without machining or replacing the rotors that could also cause brake squeal.

Only use products designed to clean brakes. Most auto parts stores carry brake cleaner. If you use anything else it could leave a residue that could cause your brakes to fail.

The cause can be traced to a few things. Number one the master cylinder may have failed. Number two you could be low of brake fluid or have none at all due to a leak or broken brake hose. If the power brake booster fails you may think you do not have brakes because it requires an excessive amount of pressure on the pedal to activate the brakes. Whatever the cause do not drive this car into you have the brakes repaired.
