on my milano verde i noticed that after sitting overnight that it was taking longer and longer to pressurize the the brake system and sometimes the red warning light came on until the system gained pressure. the pump would come on after 3 or 4 pumps of the brake pedal. it has a gm reatta pump that is about 4-5 years old with a milano pressure switch . so i replaced the the accumulator with a GM model. bled the system and although better, it still takes a while to pressurize, runs about 1-2 minutes. if it sits for a few days it takes even longer. the pump comes on after 6 pumps of the brake pedal. i checked for external leaks and found none also replaced the abs fuse just because it had been 8-9 years since i last replaced it. additionally, after the accumulator replacement, my wife reported a hard pedal/ poor braking in suburban traffic on the last 95 degree day. the car is now off the road.
what should i look at next?
thanks in advance
