Brake Warning light on
My dash light for the brakes popped on, the ABS light is not. I checked the fluid and it was low as I figured, the last time I did brakes I just had the rotors turned and put on new pads, so I know it needs a full break job now. I topped off the brake fluid and the pedal still goes to the floor to try and stop this thing. The light did not shut off either. Is there some kind of wear sensor that I don't know about??99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"

Sounds like you may have had the fluid go too low and allowed air into the system. Bleeding the system should be done. See what happens after you do that. Keep an eye on the fluid as you bleed each wheel so air doesn't get in and defeat the process.

Sounds more like you have a brake fluid leak someplace. The rear wheel cylinders would be my first suspect.

well after it sat all night with the fluid topped off the light finally went out and the sponginess is still there. yes I know its a chevy and that's typical but its still more then normal. it goes in tomorrow morning to have everything checked out. -20 right now, and I don't have a garage big enough for my beast to fit in.
