Question about Cars & Trucks
The light stays on after brake fluid was put in
In order to bleed a brake line you will probably need a second person to pump the brakes when the car is off than you need to find the bleeder on the caliper/wheel cylinder it will be towards the top of the caliper/wheel cylinder when you find it make sure you can get it loose than when the bleeder is tight you need someone to pump up the brakes with the car off they need to hold the brakes tight and you need to open the bleeder don't take the bleeder off the pedal should go to the floor when you open the bleeder they need to hold it there until you tighten the bleeder you will half to keep doing this until you feel you have gotten all the air out of that line than go to the next caliper/wheel cylinder make sure you don't let the brake fluid reservoir go empty or you will half to start over. when you are done your brake pedal should be tight if it feels spongy you probably still have air in one of the lines. the bleeder should look something like this.

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.

Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault

You may need to do a code scan,this will reset the computer and reset any codes if the brake problem has been taken care of.Autozone Shucks/Kragen/O'Reilly's will do this for free.

It will take 2 of you. 1 fill up the resevoir.2 you need to open the bleed nipple on the furthest brake from the master.3 have somone pump the brake once then close the nipple have them pump it again and hold their foot down on the brake, while they have their foot down on the brake open the nipple untill all of the air and fluid comes out, then close the nipple. Make sure you keep the resevoir topped up. Do this severel times until only fluid comes out of the nipple. Repeat on all of the wheels. You can buy a kit that pressurises the system so you can do it on your own but they are expensive for a 1 time deal.
