The Ford van had been driven for 25 minutes, the brakes working without any problem. Driving slowly ( about 10mph) down a narrow suburban lane, I braked as I approached the stop sign. The brake pedal went all the way to the floor with no response, three times. Simultaneously, there was a loud grinding noise. I was able to turn and stop at the curb and did not drive any longer. The emergency brake was not employed during the driving time.
Please advise me. I do not want to find out the hard way that there is some other cause for the break failure!
