What causes brake pedal to go all the way to the floor?

When I applied the brakes the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor before the brakes apply. The fluid level is full and front and rear brake pads are good.

Does it make a difference if you pump the brakes in rapid succession?

You probably have air in the line and need to bleed the brakes. See your owners manual or a service manual from your local library for instructions. If the brakes get spongy in a short time you need to look for a leak. Good luck.

Oldturkey had a good starting point, could be air in lines, power booster problem, vaccume leak , master cylinder internal leak. Check around all wheels, master cylinder, brake booster, anti-lock brake unit if you have, for any signs of brake fluid leak. If nothing obvious, a full system bleed may be what's needed.
