Brake Issue

Recommended Posts

Help!! Please.

I have a 1998 Lexus gs 300. The brake pedal is hard to press, and the brake light is on. There is a high pitch warning sound when you start the car. The pedals feels like the brake booster is bad. The vsc/trac lights are on.

Any assistance would be great!

not trying to scare you *BLEEP*less bud, but the master cylinder seems like its the issue:/ check your brake fluid and see if it dirty. can have something to do with it. also could be one of the abs sensors. if you kicked the VSC( Vehicle Stability Control) light on along with the abs, it might be the abs sensor. i said it can be the master cylinder as the worst case senario. PM me if you have any more questions.

Thanks for your assistance on this one. Found out it was the hydraulic brake booster. The vac. pump motor is going out. Replacing it is going to cost. New one is $1275. just for the part. Used is over $1000. yuk. Thanks Again
