Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me if any warning lights come on when applying the brakes?

Thank you. If the brakes continue to go to the floor even after the master cylinder is replaced and the brakes are properly bled then you either have a failure in the ABS unit or it needs to be bled out. The only way to properly bleed it is by cycling it open and closed with a computer scan tool. If this is not done then there will be air trapped inside causing this to occur.
