What to do if you have no pressure on your brakes?

Visually inspect the brake lines and replace damaged brake lines as needed. If you step on the brake pedal and it has little to no pressure and goes all the way to the floor, especially if you’re getting no braking: Low Brake Fluid Level: Check your brake fluid.
