NO BRAKE PEDAL - GOES TO THE FLOOR

2000 Ford Explorer

Brakes problem
2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

I replaced both front calibers and pads because one of the calibers was losing fluid. After replacing I can not get a brake pedal. I have bleed all calibers but still no brake pedal. The fluid coming out of the calibers is clean and clear. It just does not have the presure to move the calibers. I have also replaced the master cly. And rebleed the complete brake system. The ABS light is on. I also checked for other leaks.

Thanks for your help,

Ron

There's air in there somewhere. Try starting at the master cylinder. Have a helper apply a small amount of pressure to the pedal but don't push it all the way down. Then break a line loose and tell them to slowly push the pedal to the floor. Watch for air bubbles in the fluid. Repeat with the other line/s at the master cylinder. Once you're sure there is NO air in the master cylinder, start bleeding at each wheel. Start with the Passenger Rear! Once you've bled it real good there, go to the Driver's Rear. Bleed thoroughly! Then move to the Passenger Front. Then to the Driver's Front! Do it in that order. Be sure to keep an eye on the fluid level as to not run it dry. Then you have to start over.
