One Day The Brake Pedal Drops To The Floor When Coming To A Stop. Brakes Pump Up Ok. Bleed Brakes When I Get Home, They’re Softer Than Usual But Stop Fine. Notice Smoke Coming From Windshield Wiper Area At A Stop About A Week Later. Open Hood, I Don’t See Any Visual Damage, Smoke Is Gone By The Time I Check.. 2 Days Later Brake Pedal Drops To The Floor, Doesn’t Pump Up. Bleeding Doesn’t Help, Pedal Stays Soft. I Notice Something That Looks Like A Switch Or Sensor That Screws Into The Bottom Of The Master Cylinder. It’s Wet And When I Feel It I Can Tell It’s Brake Fluid. I Try To Pull Off The Connector But It Snaps Off, I Notice That It’s Been On Fire Or Has Been Very Hot. I Check With The Dealer And It’s Called A Hydraulic Disconnect Switch, It Disengages The Speed Control When You Press On The Brakes. Apparently It Started Leaking And That’s The First Time I Lost The Pedal. Apparently When I Noticed The Smoke Is The Time The Connector Became Very Hot Or Was On Fire, Because The Hydraulic Switch Leaked And Allowed Brake Fluid To Leak Onto The Connector. I Ordered A Switch But It’s On National Back-order. I Still Have The Charred Switch And Can Cut Off The Connector If It Needs To Be Inspected.*ak
