Either you did not bleed the brakes properly or they need adjusted. (rear only) Front most likely are disks. If you put pads on the front and spread the caliper pistons, you should pump the brake pedal 10 or 15 times to move the pistons out. Some ABS systems are notoriously hard to bleed.

Check your brake pads first,as they have a wear warning clip on them.so if you hear a loud screaming noise.Then its quite possible they have worn causing ur warning lights to come on.And i would get anouther quote as that is quite dear for a pump replacement.If it is the pump.good luck pippall!!

you mean you hear air in the cab down by the pedal. If thats the case your power steering assist is leaking. Its the big black unit behind the brake master cylinder. It may set a check engine light at times for lean condition.

Well, guess I don't need to tell you this is dangerous and that your front Rotors are probably trashed.
This sounds like either a bad Master cylinder or a leaking Brake booster. There can also be a bad check valve on the Vacuum line plugging into the Brake booster. There is a rather large line with a plastic fitting, sometimes a 90 degree fitting on the end and the check valve is in the plastic
You can test the Brake booster with the engine running and using an approved Brake cleaner safe for rubber and plastics. Cover the outside bottom of the hood so spray does not get on your paint. Then spray around the Booster. If the engine RPM changes, you have a leak. Save the actuating rod, and replace the Booster. Spray the check valve, if RPM changes replace it.
Now for the Master cylinder, pressure gauges can be attached to the front fluid discharge to measure if the internal pistons are sticking. But you may spend more Labor in testing, than the part is worth.
My reasons for choosing these parts as defects are that your "Brake or ABS" warning lights are not on so the problem would be before those monitoring devices. The Vacuum system is not monitored and you hear hissing. The Master cylinder is not monitored before the ABS unit.
I hope you find my solution helpful.
