Hello and welcome to just answer. If the pedal goes to the floor, then you have a failing master cylinder or ABS Hydraulic Control Unit. Either one can cause this. Have the Master cylinder checked out at a shop and replaced if it fails the test. If it is ok, then have the ABS Hydraulic Control Unit replaced.
I hope that this information is helpful.
Yes the fail8ng ABS unit would cause them to be applied a bit and then cause overheating.
Well there are really only 2 things that can cause a pedal to the floor condition. 1 the master cylinder, and 2 the HCU. If you are sure that the master cylinder is ok, then it must be the HCU. To properly bleed the system, you should use a capable scan tool that can actuate the solenoids in the HCU. So 1 do a normal brake bleed, then 2 actuate the solenoids with the scan tool, and then 3 do another brake bleed. Actuating the solenoids allows any trapped air bubbles to be bled out.
Yes that is possible. Do you see signs of the rotors overheating? Are the rotors bluish in color?
