Low brake fluid, drums/rotors in need of replacement, pads in need of replacement, air in the brake lines, worn master cylinder, brakes out of adjustment... all possible reasons.

If your brake peddle goes to the floor, you have lost brake fluid from your master cylinder in the engine compartment. Check your rubber brake hoses at each of your wheels, look for any signs of leaking brake fluid at your wheels, connections,lines, and master cylinder.

How does a clutch break work?

If a truck has a clutch brake it would only be used when coming to a complete stop. By pushing the clutch peddle completely to the floor you would apply the clutch brake. This stops the clutch disc from spinning making it easier to shift into 1st or reverse gear. Normal shifting while driving you would not need to or want to push the clutch peddle to the floor to activate the clutch brake.

How do you know if the master cylinder has gone bad in a 1997 Chevy Corvette?

One sign is if you place you foot on the brake pedal and apply steady pressure, and the pedal slowing goes down toward the floor, the master cylinder is bad. As this car is 9 years old, when replacing the master cylinder, replace all the brake fluid in the entire system with fresh fluid from an unopened can. 1. It could have a leak at the master cylender. 2. the brake peddle slowly goes all the way to the floor.

Why would your brake lights stay on at all times?

Your brake light switch is out of adjustment. Don't know what vehicle you have but most brake light switches are located on the brake peddle lever just above the brake peddle pad.
