SOURCE: bleeding rear drum brakes

Take a small drill bit and clean out the center hole of both bleed screws (make sure you get all the way down into the hole, but don't go into the metal at the end.) Then, spray a good solvent into holes and on threads. Give some time for the solvent to soak in.
Put a six point box wrench on the bleeder then tap on the end of bleeder with a hammer. Keep doing this till it comes loose when turning the wrench. Don't use excessive force but don't be afraid to use enough force to get it to turn. Doing this, you will crush the tip of the bleeder, but that will not harm the "business end" Don't use vise grips on bleeders. At best you will damage flanks of nut portion, at worse, you will snap them off. Once you have removed bleeder, clean all rust off, make sure passageway is clear and re-install. If you do manage to break a bleeder, they can be drilled out, but it must be done carefully...if you damage threads or end seat it's officially junk. Bleeder screws are usually available at most parts stores...and, wheel cylinders are not very expensive if you need to replace one. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: brakes won't bleed on a 2001 GMC Z71 four-wheel drive

check your calipers to make sure the bleeder is on the top! If not it will create a pocket of air in the chamber that won't bleed out!

Brake problem spongy brake pedal pedal goes down replaced front pads and master cylinder and wheel cylinder and bleed lines

try bleeding them more,start with the right rear,then left rear,then right front ,then left front, always bleed the brake that is furthest from the master cylinder, sometimes you have to bleed them several times until you get a steady stream of brake fluid.

Try diconnecting the battery for a minute or so, then reconnect it. the computer should reset itself, and hopefully the light will go out.
