Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you with your concerns.
Did you bench bleed the master cylinder before putting it on the truck?
Is this gas or diesel? If gas, is the brake booster good with no vacuum leaks? If diesel, is the steering fluid good and the system been bleed as well?

it diesel yes I bleed master cylinder used 2 cans of fluid is it abs

Expert:  Jeremy replied 2 years ago.
If you bleed everything, the only step would be the air in the ABS module. You will need to connect a scanner and activate the module for bleeding in order to have it to bleed. That is the only thing left that can cause soft pedal on your brake system if the rest of the bleeding was done.
If you don't have a scan tool, I would do a gravity bleed or use a hand power bleeder and pull the fluid out to get the air from the ABS.
With you doing all the work you did, most likely the air is in the ABS module and is trapped in there.

Where do I bleed the ABS module from? I do not have a scanner.

Thanks for the assistance. But I solved the problem by myself . My last

question was at 8:26 am central time, I never did get a response to my question. My problem is solved without a resolution from you.

Expert:  Jeremy replied 2 years ago.
I didn't get on until now and your follow up was 12 hours after my last contact. I did guide you on the rest, so you can't say I didn't completely assist you. Either way, I'm glad you got it resolved with the bleeding of the ABS.
