1996 chrysler concorde: wheel bearings..front brake pistons..pedal

This answer was rated:

i put wheel bearings in a 1996 crysler concord and i pushed the front brake pistons back to reassemble the brakes and now i have no brakes i blead them and put in a new master cylinder still the pedal falls away
Is there any signs of a leak?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Ok when you pushed in the piston did it make any unusal noises no fluid leaked out ,also its possible the line is kinked did you check the line going to the caliper
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
the lines are fine i was wondering if it had something to do with the piston that equalizes them. the front and the backs
And you pumped the brakes and they wont come back up hows the fluid in the master?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
when i pump them there there but i can push through them to the floor. but the brake light does not light up
So no brake lights either no problems before the wheel bearing replacment
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no the light that lights on the dash when the brakes fail
Oh ok I would try bleeding the brakes first and see if you get a pedal back first possible some air got in when collapsing the caliper shouldnt happen but possible ,try bleeding the brakes first
