I have the following Break Problem....

When I start my car in the morning , and only if it is cold the brake light comes on. After I would say 10 minutes teh light gos off and the brakes work fine.

But for the first ten or so minutes the brakes do not work aswell as they normally do i.e they are weak and you have to stand on them to make the car stop.

When you hit the brakes when the car has warmed up and is OK you hear a small sound like a pump or switch making contact , when the car is cold and has brake light on you cannot hear the pump sound when you hit the brakes.

Anyone got any ideas I have bled the system

Sounds like your brake booster is not working...

Place foot on brake pedal then start motor, the brake pedal should go down alittle..If not the booster is not working.
Maybe the valve or vacuum line to it is slightly blocked or kinked.Either way get it looked into.These slight symptoms always lead into major ones latter...Bleed brakes etc should be done once a year..Check brake pads as well...Is there any leaks around master cylinder etc...Fluid full ??
