I just replaced my rear left caliper on my '94 Ford Probe GT 2.5L V6 with 79,000 miles. I bled the brake system just on the replaced caliper by the book. The brake works well but when I pull the parking brake handle, it pulls the lever on the caliper all the way forward but the wheel still spins freely. It is not pushing the piston out to compress the brake pads. I noticed that the brake lever on the new caliper is so soft, it feels no resistance except by the spring, I can push it all the way forward by hand. Compared with the unreplaced caliper on the right rear, it feels pressurized and hard to push by hand and it locks when the brake handle is pulled. What did I miss on the replacement of the caliper? Or is there a way to make the brake handle work properly?
