Second opinion] Working on a Kia Rondo, built 11/06.4 cyl. Brake pedal goes to floor. NO lights on dashboard indicating any problems. All dis brake pads are good. All caliber are bleeded. New master cylinder installed.No leaks any where. All fuses (3) check OK. Don't know how to check ABS pump. But I think I should have a full pedal, even though the ABS pump is not working. Please Help me. What should I check? And how do I check it. Thank You for your help.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

If the pedal is going to the floor and you have no leaks your master is bad, and yes i read you put a new one on but I have gotten a ton of new masters that were bad out of the box, im assuming you also bench bled the master before installing?
