    If the brake pedal is going to the floor, then there are 2 possibilities. You have a leak in the brake system and the brake fluid has leaked out, or the master cylinder has failed (most common). Check the brake fluid level, if it is OK, then the master cylinder will need to be replaced. Have the brake fluid flushed at the same time too.
