eit! no brakes!

Well, almost no brakes... intermittently...

Sometimes, touch the pedal, and they grab like they're supposed to.

Sometimes, put the pedal to the floor, and it's like doing a Flintstones-style stop, and then the BRAKE and ABS warning lights come on -- but then, hit the pedal expecting this, and they work better, and pump a couple times, and the lights go out, and the brakes work like they're supposed to.....

Until a few stops later, when *bam* to the floor again

Not good...

So, the van is in the shop, to try and figure it out, hopefully in the next couple hours, so it can maybe be fixed today, and I can maybe drop off a hunk of furniture to bbbsg and chillguru's place, and/or to Diesel, and thence to home...
