Did you put fresh fluid in the master cylinder? I really think you still have air in the lines. To bleed manually, start with the bleeder the greatest distance from the master cylinder, car running, helper pushing down about half way on brake pedal and releasing 3 times, on 3rd time, holding pedal down to half way depressed point while you open the bleeder valve. Repeat until you are sure all air has been flushed out. Check master cyl reservoir level often, because if it gets low and you **** air into the system, you have to start all over again. Go to wheel next greatest distance from master cyl, repeat above, working your way to wheel closest to master cyl last.

They need to be bleed again all four wheels but your vacuum pump may be bad since diesels don't have vacuum then have to have a pump, check that the booster one way check valve is good if you can blow thew it both ways it's bad, to bleed start from the wheel farthest away from the master cylinder pump the brakes 5 times and hold down then open the bleed valve keep doing this until you get clear fluid out of each wheel once you have done that if it is still mushy and you know you have vacuum re bleed with engine running this will help push more out with power assist. most like the hard brake pedal had to do with no vacuum check out the pump. You may also have to reset the 2 way check valve if you need help with this let me know.

The brake light is actuated by the float in the brake fluid resevoir. When the sensor travels down the light comes on. When the sensor travels or floats in the fluid the light goes off. Check to see that the brake fluid level is at the full line on the resevoir under thje hood. Most cars of this model use standard dot 3 fluid. Another thing that will turn on the brake light is if the parking brake is applied. Check to see if the park brake is locked in its fully released setting. Sometimes you have to pull the park brake pedal up as you pull the release lever to ensure it is up all the way. riding around with the park brake engaged will burn the rear brake shoes up in a very short time.
