Hello and welcome to justanswer.com,
ok there is probably still a lot of air in the system. the best way to bleed the brake system is a follows. get a jug about a half of a gallon. put some brake fluid in the bottom. put a clear hose in the bottle and make sure it is submerged below the brake fluid. open the right rear bleeder first. carefully pump the pedal with the bleeder open and the hose below the brake fluid in the jug. make sure you have some one check the level in the master cylinder constantly and don't let it go empty. pump the pedal 10-15 times until there are no bubbles and the fluid runs clear. repeat with the rear left, right front and left front. closing the bleeder after every wheel. check your pedal again you should have a good pedal now
that is exactly what I have done 3 times but still no pedal pressure. is there a way to bleed the ABS?
the hose has been completed immersed in brake fluid? are you pumping the brakes over 1o times each wheel?
Does the engine need to be running to activate the ABS and force fluid thru it?
