Q: Brake pedal broken

Hello. A brake pedal going to the floor is a sign of a bad master cylinder or leaking hydraulic fluid. I suggest having the brake system inspected by a technician. Preferably a technician who is ASE certified in brakes because brakes are huge safety wise and you I wouldn't suggest having anyone short of a professional working on them. Being that the vehicle can not currently be driven you may benefit from mobile automotive repair service, such as YourMechanic.
