It might be time to rebuild the vacuum pump. Search the Diesel archives.
Gently pull off one of the hose by the brake booster line - see if you have any vacuum there. If you don't, there is a rebuild kit, and after 1/2 a day, you will be stopping and locking your doors again.

If the vacuum loss is intermittant, it could be a check valve(s) going bad (they are insided the vacuum pump)
