lost

I have a 1977 corvette with some type of brake problems. I continue to loose a stiff pedal, then red light alert stays on. I have bled all brake lines, replace all calibers as well as brake lines. With each new replacement of parts, brakes hold well for a little while then, loss of pedal and dash light stays on. Need help with this one, any suggestions??

Karen

The only thing left is the master cylinder... Sounds like the next thing on the list to change... I probably would have started here. Unless the calipers are leaking they generally won't cause the light to come on.

I failed to mention that the master cylinder was replaced twice on top of all the rest. No leaks are noticed.
