I see you have received a response, but I can't see how without knowing the year,model and mileage of the vehicle in question. Can you post answers to the previous questions for me. Thanks.
Sometimes float sticks down in brake master; I will then realized that there has to be a reason \015\012for the plug on the wiring harness to the brake fluid reservoir. I \015\012suggtes unplugged it, plugged it back in and tapped. In other cases, it means one or more of the following, the brake fluid is low, the \015\012parking brake lever is either up or the circuit for the paking brake \015\012switch is shorted, or if the battery light is also on, the car needs a \015\012new alternator.

Recently my brake lights on my 2001 pt cruiser went out. I changed the fuses (under the hood and inside the car)still no luck.

Usually my problem occors when the weather is damp prior to rain or after its finished raining. sometimes it stops dead in mid acceleration, or simply idling at a stop sign. sometimes the engine light appears, other times it doesn't. but the most common thing it does is that it chuggs first, loses power, steering nonexisting cannot push down brake pedal (locks up). As the car is still rolling, cannot turn off ignition or shut off car. I need to then put it in park to restart.

I know the turn signal and brake lights were on the same fuse on the older cars, but I'm not to familiar with the newer cars. Thank you for the help.
