The brake fluid level sensor in the master cylinder is stuck in the lower position which completes the circuit to illuminate the light.. Try tapping lightly on the side of the reservoir to loosen it. If that does not help, you will need to replace the level sensor.

SOURCE: cant bleed out brakes
It takes time, do you know the sequence to bleed the brakes? Most cars r different. And you have to keep pouring brake fluid, That is a two person job. Make sure all lines r connected to MC and not leaking. After a while if nothing comes out MC could be diffective.

The only other valve that would hold residual pressure is possibly the proportion valve if so equiped. If you follow the brake lines from the master cyl, they will lead yo to a muti port valvethat has all the brake lines on it. Look at the ends of the valve and tell me if there is a pin protruding from one or both ends. If a pin is proyrudingfrom one end and not the other I'll tell you how to fix it.

You will have to bleed the whole system, front and back, start with the right rear, get somebody to pump the pedal, put a hose on the lock nut, catch the oil in a can, pump up the pedal, it won't get hard till a few times doing this, crack the bleeder, tighten it back up before the pedal is released, pump again, crack,tighten, pump, repeat, go all the way around the car, keep checking the reservoir, it will pump up soon enough. You might have to go around 2 or 3 times, Now,,,, the part about the pedal going to the floor and getting hard after car is shut off, sound like you didn't hook up the vacuum line to the booster. It has an atmospheric thing going on there. Check the big hose going into the booster, which is that big round thing behind the fluid reservoir. Hope this helps.
