Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks

Sounds like a master cylinder issue.

Make sure the calipers are on the correct sides if you have replaced them. The bleed screws need to point to the top.

You need to check wheel cylinders, the only way that the brake peddle will go to the floor like that is if there is a lose of fluid pressure somewhere .

You will need to bleed the brake system. I would start with the rear brakes lines and work towards the front.You must have key off engine off when bleeding brakes, apply pressure on brake pedal 10 times and hold. The brake line is now ready to be open. Open and let the stream of fluid come out and close the line tight. Then release brake pedal once bleeder screw is close. This procedure must be repeated twice front and back. After, brakes have been bleed pump the brake pedal before putting in drive.
Note: Don't let the resevoir run low on brake fluid. This will cause air bubbles to accumulate on the brake system. Always top off before opening bleeder screw.

You still have air in the brake system and this becomes evident when the operation of the booster allows the pedal to do down as it is compressing the air in the lines more efficiently than what you can do with your foot. Try starting the bleeding procedure but undoing the lines at the master cylinder and priming the unit first to get the air out of both sides of the unit. Tighten the lines and with the help of a assistant start at the longest line first and work back to the shortest. Booster failure will result in no assistance or engine stopping from a massive vacuum leak when the valves are opened. The abs is just a motor driven pump that supplies pressure to the brake system when the wheel sensors come into operation otherwise the brake pedal pressure is operating through the ABS unit to the brakes. (An ABS is only there to keep the brake pressure constant as the sensor opens and closes a valve to stop the wheel skidding . If it is not working then pressure from the pedal may bleed back leaving you with no brakes.)

Testimonial: "Thanks Bill, I do know for fact there are SUM chrysler vehicles that require a ABS bleed procedure done in the MIDDLE of the brake bleed procedure...first bleed the base system, then use scanner and operate ABS system and perform the ABS bleed thing w/ scanner, then bleed a second time of the base system again...I KNOW when i worked for chrysler i did this to one vehicle, but dont remember which one...either way, new master, new booster, bled the hell outta system, and STILL soft pedal....."
