on a 1993 Deville I believe that GM installed 2 seperate brake lines from LH and RH leading from the calipers so that if one went out at least you had stopping power in the other caliper. this was done as a safety feature because of past fatalities from previous accidents.

Check the reservoir to be sure the fluid is full. If not, top it off and try it again. If there's still trouble building pressure, pump the brakes a bunch of times, and then check around each wheel for fluid on the ground. If you see none, it's possible that you have a break in the line somewhere through the chassis and that the fluid is leaking out inside. If you see no evidence of leakage, and the reservoir is still full, you need a new brake master cylinder - what will have happened is that the diaphragm around the plunger inside the master cylinder (which moves through the cylinder when you push the pedal, and forces fluid out to the wheels) has a hole or tear in it, so instead of pushing the fluid out to the brakes, the plunger simply moves through the fluid. It never builds pressure, and your brakes don't work.

Did you personally change them? Check all wheels and brake lines for leaks. Check if your brake fluid reservoir is full. It sounds like there is air in your brake lines. This guide will help you and a friend bleed your brake lines: http://www.wikihow.com/Bleed-Brakes. If it is leaking somewhere in your lines you may need to replace that section. Comment if you need more help.

Only 2 items can cause that. First one being air in the brake lines. If work has been done on the brake system then they weren't bleed properly. The other is a bad master cylinder.
