Hi Patrick. Thanks for contacting us today. There are several possibilities, ranging from a faulty master cylinder, or air bubbles trapped in the brake lines. Typically, the best way to diagnose and resolve this issue is to inspect the master cylinder and all brake lines (to verify they are tight and not leaking). You’ll also want to bleed the brakes a few times to ensure the lines are clear. If this problem continues, it is possible that you have brake pads that are the wrong ones for your vehicle. It might be a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and help diagnose this problem - as it could be a serious safety issue.
