pedal comes to a place...
I have a 2010 dodge and when the brakes are applied the pedal comes to a place of resistance then fades on down to about half pedal. It acts like bad cups in the master cylinder, but I just put on a new one and it didn't make any difference. Anyone have any experience or ideas on this?

Hello and welcome to just answer. Is the red brake warning light on?

No, the brake light is not on....I just changed all pads, Master cylinder, left rear caliper and two front rotors

Ok, if that is the case and you are sure the brakes are bled properly, then you have a problem with the ABS (Antilock brakes) Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU). There are several valves in there and can leak internally causing a low dropping pedal. If the brakes were bled, then consider replacing the HCU unit and then re bleed the brakes.

Thanks for leaving this open....I would appreciate you doing that until my issue is resolved. I can let you know when it is done. This will help you in knowing you were right on with your diagnosis and help me by having you on standby in case there might be another problem. However, I do have another question at this time...I noticed an electronic device of some sort on the front of the brake booster...What is that and what is the function / purpose?

You are welcome! I am here for you. That device on the brake booster is a vacuum sensor and the ABS control module uses it to monitor the engine vacuum that is available to the booster.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
