I suggest that you take your vehicled towed to a reputable repair facility. With the brake pedal traveling to the floor this is very dangerous, in any situation. You may have a faulty diaphram in your brake booster, or a caliper that is faulty. I suggest that you make arrangements for an inspection and repair as soon as possible!
Hope this Helps!

Whenever you have any problems with the brakes of your car, you need to have it looked at by a trained auto technician as soon as possible.
The brake pedal going all the way to the floor 2xs is a BIG problem.
I would get it towed to the shop and have them find out why your brakes are failing.

Please get this looked at asap. This can be a safety concern, so I'd find a Certified Female Friendly shop close by and have them take a look before you drive much longer! Good luck and be safe!

Janie, ABS issues need to be handled immediately. Sometimes there are several problems (speaking from personal experience) that are related. Like the domino effect, expense rises with time. I would suggest a repair facility that specializes in your vehicle or sounds like they have experience. I would make a few phone calls prior to having the vehicle towed to your selected repair facility. Also, I would ask the repair center who they recommend to tow your vehicle and if they know the tow fee or if they (or the tow company) offers any discounts for referrals.

Janie, I know how scary and frustrating this can be -- especially with an intermittent problem. You should definitely have it looked at as soon as possible. Ignoring any dashboard light (ABS, SRS, Check Engine, etc.) can do future damage to your vehicle and put your safety at risk. If you have a mechanic you trust or even a diagnostic tool that reads ABS codes, those would be good places to start. Also, CarMD's team of ASE-certified would be happy to look into this further for you, if you can share the year of your Town & Country. Best of luck, Kristin Brocoff, CarMD.com Corp.

It means there is a problem in your anti-lock braking system that needs to be addressed. It means if you should happen to do a panic stop, instead of stopping in a straight line, there is a chance you would spin out and wreck. Get it fixed, especially if this has happened before? Consider yourself a lucky gal~needing to stop is IMPORTANT for yourself & the family you are hauling around! Could be minor or the beginnings of a major repair, but don't hesitate! Diagnosing ABS problems requires a fair amount of knowledge and expertise (as well as special equipment in many applications), so this job is best left to a competent professional
