What would cause a brake line not bleed? I have had mastercylinder replaced because it wouldn't stop unless you pump the brakes. Then I was told it was my hydraulic pump in my ABS system, so I had it replaced (2) times. The tech has been working on it for 3 weeks can you give me some insight as to what the problem could be? There are 6 lines and only one of them isn't bleeding and the tech has been checking for blockage and leaks and hasn't found any as of yet.

Do you
have the same problem?

Does not sound like your tech knows what is going on.

A bad braske hose would do it.

3 times on module? Hope you are not using used parts, bad move

Thank you Roy for your prompt response. Would replacing a bad hose be expensive?

No, the hose is around 20 plus 1 hour labor
