no brakes or power steering
Comments
Since you did not tell us what typer of car or truck this is,
I will assume it a truck or van with the Hydro boost
system. It uses the power steering pump to power the
brake booster and steering. Most likely the shaft in the
steering pump broke causing no pressure.

brake pedal went to floor bake light came on with I P at the top, What is wrong.
You have either lost brake pressure because of a bad
master cylinder, or the fluid got too low caused by a leak.
how do i remove the front brake shoes on my 1996 Buick Lesabre. And where is the
master cylinder.
My 1992 chevy 1500 has breaks but driver side caliber gets hot and will not release
properly whats my problem?
The front brakes do not have shoes, it has pads.
Remove the caliper and replace them. The master
cylinder is on the firewall under the hood. See this link for
brake replacement.
Most mechanics make the mistake of replacing the
caliper without checking it thoroughly. But many times it
is a bad brake hose at the caliper. They get deteriorated
inside and do not release the pressure.

Impala 2005 when you break car will not stop you have to push break petal all the way
down to floor and sometimes it still won't stop and you have to pump the break to make it
stop.  Could you give me any advice on what might be wrong.
Sounds like maybe the master cylinder is bad, or the fluid
is low and there is air in the system.
No brake fluid is coming out of my passenger side and driver side can not bleed them.

You could have a bad master cylinder. If a seal inside
went bad, this would cause not pressure.
