    A hard brake pedal is a sign of air in the brake line. Because there is air in the brake line, the air is getting in the way of moving the brake fluid so the calipers are not engaging. You have to find out why there is air in the brake line. You may have a tiny hole in one of the brake lines. Get a flashlight and trace all the brake lines and look for a leak. Have someone press on the brake peddle while you look.
