    Default Strange braking problem, any idea's?

    A friend has a 2003 Vectra Hatch Y20DTH with a strange braking problem. Occaisionally the car will lock all it's brakes, with out driver interventention and stop the car. The brake pedal is hard and it has to be left for a day or so then operates normally for a while, till it does it again. Now he knows it's not KITT in disguise, any idea's guys?

    i suspected master cyl as it cant be all four calipers failing at once, but he doesn't even touch the pedal and the car brakes, so cant figure how a master cyl can operate itself.
