I was in park waiting for a spot to open up in a school parking lot, took my vehicle out of park and proceeded to put in drive and move 20 feet or so to the parking spot, as I was turning into the spot I engaged the brake to come to a complete stop but my pedal did not work, it did not spring back like it is suppose to and my vehicle did not stop and a concrete parking pillar stopped my vehicle for me. I threw it into park and jumped out because smoke was pouring from my hood to see the damage and when I jumped back in to the car to shut it off I realized my car wasn't running and all the lights came across the dash. I restarted the car and the brake pedal pumped like nothing was wrong. $6,000 worth of damage later and still being worked on and no answers to why my brakes failed me.
