soft peddle feel maybe from a damaged brake master cylinder. this pressurizes the peddle, and if there is a leak in the cylinder it might feel soft or flop all the way to the floor.

Check for wheel bearing play. Check that the pads are in good condition and not falling apart. Check the brake master cylinder seals have not failed.

What is brake system bleeding?

Brake system bleeding is working on hydraulic brake systems. This is when the brake line has air bubbles in the line. You open the bleed screw on the caliper and pump fluid through the lines until all of th bubbles are gone from the system, an air bubble will steal pressure from the brake system and prevent good operation.

You may need to check your brake light switch. It is a small switch located on top of your brake peddle (up on the arm of the peddle). This switch allows the brake lights to come on whenever you push the peddle.
