Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am
The traction control, I am not sure of, but the anti lock brake system does nothing to your brakes except make them stutter to a stop so that the wheels don't lock up and you can steer the car. Even when disabled, you still have brakes, no abs though. As far as your brakes go, You just bled them and still have no brakes?? You lost the pedal and bled the brakes to try to get he pedal back with no luck. Did somebody damage the brake line somewhere? Any leaks? Puddles? Wet inside the wheels? Does the pedal pump up enough to get a pedal started? If the power booster is connected to the vacuum system with no air leaks, and you have fluid in the reservoir, start the bleeding again at the right rear wheel, farthest from the reservoir, Do it about 4 or 5 times, lock up the nut every time before moving the pedal, check the reservoir and keep it full, catch the used brake fluid in a cup with a hose on the bleeder, go to the left rear wheel, do the same thing, work your way around to the front. If you have to do it twice, do it. Brakes are mechanical, not electric or anything complicated, only so much will prevent them from working. If you don't get any air out of the line and still can't get a pedal, You might have other issues, If you don't get fluid out of each bleeder, you could have a soft line that has cappilaried, ? Means it has popped on the inside and won't let fluid pass either way. Are the lines rusty at all? Try it and let me know.
