SOURCE: how to bleed brakes
Sounds like the proportioning valve is stuck. You may need to break a front bleeder loose and hit the pedal the unseat the valve. Then blead the rearbrakse and then bleed the wheel where you broke the bleeder loose. That should work.

When people tell me they hate there ABS, alot of people who pull trailer do. I tell them just to pull the fuse this will stop them completely. Yeah theres a light ont he dash but that can alos be delt with by removing the bulb for it. But int he long run just pulling the fuse is quick and Free.

do you have a self bleeder kit? first off, you have to bleed the master cyl back into its self and the combination valve before you go to the wheels. when you do that, I think you will find that you have air in the lines. disconnect both brake lines from the master cyl and put the bleeder kit fittings on the master cyl, then put the rubber tubing with the kit on the fittings and submerge it in the brake reservoir. make sure its full. then pump the pedal until you get a hard pedal. if that is the case, reconnect the lines to the master, then have an assistant pump up the brake pedal with the engine off, and bleed the combination valve which should be connected to the master by steel tubing. pump it up, then hold it down, and crack the fittings loose, one at a time until the pedal goes about half way down, but do not release the brake pedal until the line is tight again, otherwise you will **** air in the lines. after you do all that, go to the farthest caliper or wheel cylynder from the master and bleed that with the same technique,and dont release the pedal until you close the bleeder screw. unless you have a major prob, this will work.

computer does that, or you have to have enough brake fluid preasure also, check for leaking lines (brake lines). make sure fluid is full.abs system has dump valves , if there was a problem abs light would be on. but abs might lite if not enough preasure hope this helps.
