Hi welcome to just answers, this is Ricardo and lest see if I can help with this situation. Are you using the correct dot 3 fluid, are you following the correct brake bleeding circuit procedure, did you after bleeding all including master cylinder actuated the abs solenoids to need the antilock?

How do u actuated abs solenoids
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 5 months ago.
You will need a scanner to do a brake bleeding actuator procedure you can use a snap on modus scanner this will force the solenoids on the antilock to actuate and dump air pockets to the reserve bottle, this test will ask you to step on the brakes and put steady pressure until the actuation stops.
