Question about 1991 Mazda 626
Some machanics said master cylinder and drums and bearing other said I need disk brakes and drums . The brake pedal still goes down no brakesplease help me understand what it needs.
It appears that you have not bled the air out of the system. Get a mate to pump the brake pedal a few times then hold it down while you open the bleed screw starting at the nipple furtherest from the m/cyl. Hold down the pedal while you retighten the nipple. repeat the process until there is only oil coming out. Do this at all nipples until the pedal is solid. don' forget as you are doind this the oil in the m/ cyl resevoir will be going down so keep an eye on it and refill as necessary. Use only the correct brake fluid from an unopened container

remove 2 caliper bolts, remove old pads. put new pads in there place, before installing the caliper, be sure to squeeze the piston back in the caliper otherwise it will not fit back over the new pads. than replace the caliper and the 2 mounting bolts.

This is most likely caused by an erratic wheel speed sensor when the car is turned on it does a abs system check. When the light goes on and off it is because probblem only shows up when wheel speed sensor signal is vaulty. Since you just did the front brakes and know the problem started, it is most likely that the sensor got damaged or misaadjusted. The other thing you need to check is, the sensor is magnetic and can catch alot of debris, like metal shavings from a freshly turned rotor or other metal particles. I would see if there clean and the reluctors are clean to, also check connection and wire make sure it was not damaged. The other thing that can happen but is least likely is that, materials can be pushed into the hydraulic control module. This happens by forcing the piston to the very bottom without opening the bleeder valve since, this is where dirt and corrosion usually accumulates.

Not 100% sure but peel back the handbrake lever cover.Beside the lever where the handbrake cable attaches there may be an adjuster there.Either directly on the cable itself or by locknuts threaded on the cable.Hope this helps
