The other day the brakes got hard and the check engine light came on. I stopped at Advance and had the code checked and it said it was the brake booster vacuum pressure sensor. Well, before I could get the part and replace it the car got to where it would start and it shuts right back off. I have just replaced the sensor like it said and now it still starts and shuts off. So what could my problem be now?

Good morning,

The sensor will not cause this at all. All the sensor does is send a signal to the ECM for vacuum. The sensor did its job.

Can you hear any hissing around the brake pedal or outside at the booster? It sounds like the booster is the issue and that will cause the engine to stall as well.

I attached the procedure below for you for the repair.
