Brake fluid leaking. Check brake lines, wheel cyclinders, or between master cylinder and vacuum booster. The easiest way to check is in the morning look for a wet spot on the ground. You can also press the brake pedal a few times then look under vehicle for dripping fluid. The fluid is going somwhere you just have to find out what is leaking.
