Question about 1990 Honda Accord
.recently i replaced both calipers because the brakes wouldnt release, theyve since relased but the brake literally has no pressure the brake has to be to the floor to stop, i know the car needs bleeding but it also has more air, the cap that the brake fluid goes in it has two like electrical wires and then like a little ring that controls the air whihc i think may be broke but i've delt with one like this before cant afford shop tried finding a manual for download online but cantfind nothing, help please!!
Your best bet is to bleed the entire system starting with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder, and working to the closest one.
Also, if you have drum brakes on the rear, make sure they are properly adjusted as poor adjustment will cause a "low" pedal.
The cap you refer to with wires is the resivour fluid level sensor, and the ring keeps fluid in and contaminants out.

Do you still have the problem ? If so, try disabling the ABS completely (electrically) by disconnecting the 50 amp breaker and remove the ABS controller. You should have brake power restored and be careful as the brakes will lock now if you apply too much foot pedal pressure. I hope this helps.

Using a "C" clamp I usually use the old pads and gently use the clamp to depress it by turning a little at a time... Make sure to go slow..

Your problem look like if there is still some air in the calipper cylinder.
I suggest you loosen the brake hose at the calliper and completely retract the piston.
Then thighen back the hose and perform a normal bleeding procedure of the front brake lines.

Short of jacking up the wheel and putting a new car underneath, you've just about covered all the possibilities. But I wonder, perhaps in your attempts to solve this, if you have inadvertantly introduced another fault? As you know, the brake master cylinder on a disc braked vehicle has no static valve. If there were to be a static valve in the master cylinder, the brakes would lock on after a few pumps. But this would affect both front wheels. There could also be a collapsed section in one of the flexible hoses which would let fluid through for bleeding but not allow the fluid to return. this would hold the brake on too. When you had the cliper off, did the rotor trun freely?
