I have just replaced all of the brake pads and the master cylinder twice and bled the brakes at the wheels, still the pedal goes to the floor, no light on the dash and we’re getting vacuum should the next step be the pedal position sensor?

Pedal goes to the floor (or close to the floor) for only a few reasons.

The master cylinder is passing brake fluid internally
The push rod (if adjustable) from brake pedal to the master cylinder is too short
The brake shoes (if it has rear brake drums) need adjusting because the distance between the shoe and drum is too great
Or there is an external fluid leak.

If the pdeal is not hard, there is air in the system.

Pedal postion sensor will not impact pedal height

Mine is doing the same thing. I replaced the front and back brakes, Master cylinder, Brake booster and bleed the breaks 3 times. It still goes to the floor every now and then. It will stay like that for a while and then go back to normal. I think that something mingh be messed up in the abs module. Did you ever figure out what was wrong?
I have the same issues

I have the same issues
What year and model Ford?
How many miles?
What have you done to repair?
Has the brake fluid been flushed?

With engine off, pump the brakes a couple of times and then hold the pedal down and start the engine. What happens to the pedal?

Does the pedal go to the floor and touch the floor?
When that happens are the brakes working at all? (Or no brake operation at all)
Is the system loosing fluid?
How many miles on the vehicle?

The brake pedal on my 2009 Ford Escape 3.0 drifts to the floor when applying the brakes. I just replaced the master cylinder, bled the brakes and it is still doing the same thing. Does anyone have insight on what the issue can be? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
I’m having same issues and so are many Ford Escape owners. I replaced all the brakes and master cylinder and nothing. I been having these issues for many years and no one can tell me what it is and refer me to go to dealership but it’s expensive to even get your car checked there. I was told by a mechanic that if that many Ford owners are having the same issues they should do a recall.

Check for leaks.

Does the fluid drop to a lower level?

I finally got mine repaired 2009 escape 3.0
Had to repair the abs pump not the module.also my mechanic had to adjust the pin other booster had mine sitting for 45 days and couldn't figure out . It was a internal issue with abs that's why it would mot work. Even replacing cylinder amd bleeding brake lines...
