You definitely have to bench bleed the master cylinder, and once you have replaced it in the vehicle, you will need to bleed the brakes from the calipers to remove any additional air.

Abs light on and pedal will not compress without pumping when I first start the car. Drives fine after. 2004 Isuzu rodeo 3l

pumping means the MC is bad, or there are leaks.
look for leaks takes what 5min?
if no leaks on ground
or on tires.
or both sides of fire wall below, MC then the MC is bad. (leaks inside at seals inside (worn out)
mc is the MASTER cylinder.
my post assumes brakes were not molested, or needs bleeding due to that.

I have bleed the rear brakes multiple times but still get air and "soft" pedal requiring multiple pumpimg. How do I bleed them if they are anti lock brakes? 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

It's pretty much the exact same process just remove your abs relays/fuses
if the brake bleeding doesn't work it sounds like you may need a new master cylinder

Soft brakes

You have a leak in the brake system, need to check the medal brake lines that run through the frame rail and goes to the back wheels, It is common for those to rust into towards the back. If lines are okay then check the wheel cylinders. If you are not low on brake fluid then you probley have a bad master cylinder.

2001 Rodeo 6 cylinder. ABS light comes on when I start car. Have had the brakes check and they tell me there is no problem. Car has about 115,000 miles on original brakes but I am told it still has...

The ABS will come on and stay lit for a couple seconds when you start the car. It should then extinguish. This is normal operation. If it stays lit there is a problem and the ABS will not be available, although the brake system is still fully operational. Leave a message if this is not solved.

My brakes do not release immediately on my Rodeo

You need to find out if it`s just one brake that`s sticking on or if it`s the pair diagonally connected to each other or if it`s all four. If it`s just one, it`ll be the cylinder or associated components to that one brake or a crushed pipe. If it`s two diagonally opposed to each other, it could be the brake compensator located on or near the rear axle (May not have one due to having ABS) or the master cylinder to that circuit or a crushed pipe. If it`s all of them, it can only be the master cylinder/booster sticking pedal or again a crushed pipe. Ian

Bleeding Brakes on a 2001 Silverado Z71


When bleeding brakes after the system has been opened for service (you didn't say if you were doing any work on the master cylinder) you should start with the farthest wheel away from the master cylinder, which is the righ rear. Fill the master cylinder, then have an assitant "pump up" the brake pedal. Tell them to hold it down firmly, then open the bleeder on the wheel cylinder(s). Do not release the brake pedal until you have closed the bleeder valve again. You'll know when the air is out - there won't be any more bubbles. Since this vehicle is 2001, this would be a great opportunity to flush the system. Just make sure you have enough brake fluid (DOT 3 or 4, depending on your vehicle). Good luck!

Don't be cheap. Get some decent tires. About your ABS light, you might either have a master cylinder that's going bad or your pads are worn and ABS sensors are trying to tell you to have your brakes serviced.
