We just bought this car and the brakes went all the way to the floor the lady said she would bleed them and drive it a while then they would need bleeding again.
So that’s what we did. The master cylinder was very low on fluid when we started and there was lots of air in the line but we got good pedal after bleeding them.
And sure enough after driving for a few days the brake light came on and just a little while later while driving the pedal went all the way down and wouldn’t pump back up, it just goes to the floor every time. The master cylinder is still full. So we are stumped. Help!

Here is a guide that helps with this issue. If the master cylinder is still full then I suspect it has an internal leak that is allowing the pedal to go to the floor.

Review this guide and let's go from there:

What I would suggest is capping the lines coming off the master cylinder and then push the pedal. If it still goes to the floor then it has to be the master cylinder as you eliminated everything else in the system. If it is a hard pedal immediately then you have a leak somewhere else in the system.
