2005 chevy equinox brakes get hard if I let foot of gas pedal the car will stop on own like brakes are being applied by them self after driving for a little distance brake will get tight like they are being applied on there own sometimes if you turn car off and let sit for a bit the car is normal then after driving for about 15 miles it will start again. There was no lights coming on dash to show any problems. I work for nissan dealer they pulled abs fuse to see if lproblem still occurs and after driving the brake pedal will get very tight but does not force brakes on.

I need to know what the vacuum reading is when your problem happans. Stop throwing parts at it. If the vacuum is low there is no part that will fix it.
