Brakes problem
1995 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

When coming up to a stop, I go to press the brakes and my pedal won't want to go down. There is a sort of "ree" sound and I almost can't stop at all. I have to press down on it with all my weight and it will jerk to a stop, but the pedal still won't go down. Or, I have to let my foot off the pedal, press down until it starts doing it again, take my foot off and etc. It doesn't do it all the time and my ABS light isn't always on. What is going on and how do I fix it?

It sounds like the ABS is actuating. First, check the wiring to the sensors. If they are good, make sure the sensor and startor is clean. If they are caked with dirt, it could cause the ABS to actuate. Also, if you can, have the computer scanned to see why the ABS light is on. It should point you in the right direction.

Let me know what you find.
