ok so back in january i traded my 85 2dr fwb for a 93 fleetwood cause i wanted the 4drs (bad decission) anyway everything was fine till last week now my breaks are really soft. the car will stop but the pedle goes all the way to the floor. ive pulled the codes and i have no clue as to what they mean.
these are the codes:
01-133
04-183
05-10
07-115
08-168
16-118
17-152
18-155
19-106
20-54
21-83
22-154
23-104
25-116
26-140
27-82
28-56
30-151
31-01

now like i said i have no clue as to how to tell whats what. im going to pull the drums off tomorrow to see if i can find the leak in the break system. all the help would be great.
thanks jeremy

first off those codes you listed dont mean anything
since only 00-04 parameters are trouble codes
and any with a 1 in front is a history, or stored code

most likely you lost a brake line, these cars
are famous for rotting out brake lines, the
most common area is under the drivers side door
or b pillar
is your master cyl dry on 1 side?
if so add a little pump the brakes and see where is comes out
replace as much brake line as you have to, any thats
rusty, easy enough

ok so i jacked the car up n theres no leaks in the lines all though they are pretty rusty. i did see some run off between the master cylinder and break booster. is there a seal in there that can be replaced or do i have the replace both of them? also would that make my abs light stay on?

sounds like your on the right track with the master cylinder
there are rebuild kits out there,

a rebuilt unit can run a bit over $100

its not hard to rebuild one yourself
but everything needs to be extra clean
take your time and make sure you dont pinch or tear the seals during installation, and were here if you need any help

ok so i should b good with a new master cylinder or should i replace the break booster also

brake booster should be find
typically a bad booster results in a "hard" to push pedal
they dont go out very often
and if you did need one I would suggest getting a used one
which I have in stock, but again from what you have said
it sounds like a master cyl issue
