The vehicle involved was a 2000 GMC Jimmy. The VIN of the car is 1GKDT13WXY_. My wife started the car and the red brakes warning light was on. She pumped the brake pedal and it went to the floor. She turned the car off and returned to the house and cancelled her scheduled appointment. Later, after I arrived home I inspected the brake lines and found evidence of leaking above the left rear wheel. I jacked up the car, removed the left rear wheel and a rubber shield between the frame rail and body. More evidence of a leak was present. I started the car, pumped the brakes twice, turned off the car and reinspected the area. The metal brake line that runs along the top of the frame rail had a leak where it 90s toward the center of the axle. This brake hoses, lines/piping, and fittings problem happened on 05/24/13.
