Brake systems have two main parts. The hydraulic system actuates or applies the brakes. If there is a problem, the pedal will feel soft, low or fade away. The friction parts consist of pads, shoes and rotors or drums. A symptom of excess wear would be squeaking, grinding or pulsating. Time to stop and get your brakes fixed.
