Hi I replace the front brake caliper on a Mazda b2200, I'm trying to bleed the line, I get fluid through the bleeder but the caliper doesn't work, what am I doing wrong?
Do you

When you changed it did you accidently drain master resorvoir?

The piston will not move while you are bleeding if that is what you are looking at, ensure that the reservoir is full, do you have good pedal pressure? If the system is getting pressure and the piston is not moving the piston will be seized.

Rulesluca, maybe I should ask if you've ever bled brakes before.

Hi, I don't have pedal pressure at all, I did bleed the line of the caliper replaced after I filled the reservoir. One more thing, the ABS light is on

Re bleed the system, and run a scan for the ABS system, advise any findings.
