Brake pedal will be soft if the front pads are seized in the slides..and/or your rear brakes are dirty and out of adjustment. Pull up the park brake slowly and count the clicks it goes up More than 5 clicks...needs rear brake adjustment

Soft pedal is caused by air in the system. Bleed the brakes starting at RR, then LR, RF, and ending at LF.

if brake pedal is soft , either there is air in the system ,a brake fluid leak, or brake linings and pads are worn allowing the pedal to travel to far if there is a fluid leak, this can usually be found by getting under vehicle and looking at inside of wheels for brake fluid

Air in the system. -Get it checked by a pro, ASAP.

Start the engine and then push the brake pedal down. If it is soft and easy to push then the booster is okay. If booster is BAD the brake pedal would be hard to push.

Air in the brake system. You need to bleed the air out of the system.

Air trapped in the brake lines. Bleed your brakes and that will solve the problem.

It probably means that you need to visit a mechanic. Soft brake pedal feel can mean that air has gotten into the fluid lines. There could be other issues like worn-out pads or rotors.

Could be the master cylinder is bypassing.

Your brake system may have air in the lines. When did you last check fluid level .

If the brake pedal is soft on a 1997 Ford F-150, then there is a good chance that there is air in the brake line. This can be remedied by bleeding the brakes system.

Typically, that comes from having air in the lines.

Could be low on fluid, or your shoes are worn. See a mechanic

test the booster with engine turned off, pump brake pedal until pedal goes hard then hold foot on brake pedal and start engine. if booster is working, the pedal will go soft as it should for mormal use. if booster is not working ,the pedal will stay hard

User Avatar

a soft pedal could be the result of worn down linings, like the rear brakes needing adjustment, leaking hydraulic cylinders....

It is above the brake pedal not under it. Follow the brake pedal bracket all the way up and you will see the brake pedal switch.

User Avatar

there could be a brake light switch located around the brake pedal, this commonly wears out on a Chevy truck The brake sockets are no good There was a campaign for updated brake sockets. Has it been done by a Saturn dealer? If not get it done and you should be fine
