So, I haven't been on here in awhile because I've spent 99% of my online time car shopping and researching. I was hoping to get by problem free with the 01 SES (seeing as I killed the 98 Se's tranny) and just tonight as i was going to my friends house, the brakes failed. I pushed the pedal in and it went to the floor with no result. So I let off and hit it again and they worked fine. Upon arrival I smelled somethign odd and realized the E-Brake was on. I took it off and looked at the brakes. When we got to an onramp the brakes did the same thing...working after i let off and pushed the pedal back in. And they have worked fine for the rest of the night.

One side of me says to get this checked out. The other reminds me that in one month it's no longer a problem for me. Not to mention they've worked fine since then and havent' squecked or made any noise at all.

You overheated the brakes, and boiled the fluid out of the lines. Have them checked for heat stress, and get the system flushed.

And isn't there a light to tell you when the parking brake is on?
