Soft brake pedal on 2010 Suzuki grand vitara. New master

Customer Question

Soft brake pedal on 2010 Suzuki grand vitara. New master cylinder was installed but still has soft pedal. If i pump the pedal a few times it becomes firm. Installed new pads on front and rear and still has soft pedal. I have disk brake on front and rear. Is there any special procedure for bleeding my brake system or ABS system?
JA: Have you checked the fluids? Have the brakes been shaking or squeaking?
Customer: Fluids are good and up to level. No squeaking or shaking
JA: When was your last tune up?
Customer: 1 week ago
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: What have you tried so far?
Customer: Tried bleeding the brake from RR wheel to LR wheel to RF wheel and finally to LF wheel. but still no luck
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Try going RF, LF, LR, RR. Make sure the ignition is off when bleeding it.
