Possible break hoses to the calipers? Pump up your breaks with the front end off the ground and see if you can spin the wheels. Break hoses will break down from the inside out.

Thanks I will give that a shot and replace those are only 13.99 a piece for both front

If it's been sitting a while you might also check your fuel pump and filter.

Replace hoses to calipers. Internal rubber deteriorated and collects at piston opening. Plenty of pressure for braking but runout of calipers is what pushes back the fluid. Debris acts like a check valve
