Start from the master cylinder and check if the housing is bad or worn out, specially the buckets. Then check all the wheel cylinders, the buckets before the system is charged and bled out.
Once the air in the sytem is fully off , the pressure must come on. If not make sure that the wheel cylinder travel is closer by adjustment .
You must get the pressure once there is no gap in any of the cylinders and the system is free from air lock.
Credit me if this solves.

94' Honda Accord 5 door, Driver side caliper piston remains stuck in closed position constantly applying constant brake pressure to driver side front wheel brake piston.

if the caliper is ok it sounds like the flexiable hose is restrcted by the metal crimps on the hose corroded and crushing the reinforced rubber hose restricting the fluid returning back in to the system. change the hose

I have a 23 t bucket and i cant get a brake pedal.when i bought it had very little brake so i replaced rear shoes and cylinders,front pads and calipers,all new lines and the master cylinder

Once you have bled the air from the brake lines,clamp off the front brake hoses carefully.Does the pedal feel better now?
Then the pad /caliper fit is allowing too much play.Is the pedal the same?Then clamp the rear hose and try the pedal.Is it fine with the rear hose clamped?If so we now know the problem is at the rear brakes.One common low pedal rear brake cause is brake shoes that do not fit the drums.Remove the drums and look at the shoes,are they showing contact wear fully or just in the middle of the shoe?Remove a shoe and place it in the drum.Can you rock the shoe against the drum surface?Once drums have been resurfaced,the shoes will not fit fully against the drum allowing the shoe the flex when applying pressure to it and this can easily create a low soft brake pedal. Of course rear brake adjustment must be correct once brake shoe contact is correct.To correct brake shoe contact,have your shoes re arc-ed to fit resurfaced drums or install new drums.Don't overlook brake master cyl /brake pedal push rod adjustment too.

Replace brakes with new pads; shoes; master cylinder; booster, and bled bakes many times. brake pedel still goes all the way down. Why?

I don't know if you adjusted rear brake shoes you didn't say. When you replace the rear shoes you have to adjust them so they won't have to travel to far to contact the drum. If they have to travel out to touch the drum that will use up the pedel travel too. Also I have seen this happen if the calipers were replaced too. It is very easy to mount them on the wrong sides. Check to see if the bleeder screws are at the bottom or top of the calipers/ If they are sticking out from the bottom then you need to switch them to the other sides. Air can only come out at the top of the caliper.

My brake caliper keeps wering my brake shoe down after just replacing the brake caliper

brake calipers have brake pads not shoes. system must be bled after installing brake caliper so no air can heat up and push on the pads.

Installed a rebuilt calipher (front left), Bled that side, caliper still does seem to be working. This is a 1996 toyota carolla.

i had this same problem and i changed the caliper 3 times before finding out that the rubber hose that goes connected to it was clogged and making the caliper stick and burning out my brake pad on that side very fast.i checked the hose and it was not letting the brake fluid flow with no pressure.i replaced the hose,bled the caliper and no more problems at all. i hope this info helps.good luck and take care, manny

Spongy brake pedal even after ABS bleed and base brake bleed.

Did you adjust the rear shoes out? If the rear drum brakes are out of adjustment they will give you a lot of pedal travel. If the pads are worn have no fear of that U-CLIP brake spring, just change one shoe at a time. Take the spring off one side, change the shoe, put the spring back on the post and do the same to the other shoe, no problem.

After replacing drive side caliper, both front disk brakes, and rear drum brakes, bleed all three lines, both my front calipers lock grinding my front brakes. I am going to re-bleed my lines tomorrow but...

I assume you mean that you replaced the front pads and rear shoes. Or did you also replace the disks and drums?? Either way you should be ok unless you also replaced the slave cylinders on the rears.
The fluid flows back up to the Master Cylinder as you squeeze the calipers and the slaves to fit the new parts in. Some people pre-fill the caliper to reduce the amount of air and make bleeding easier.Now .....Grinding better be a wrong choice of words. Possibly you spilled fluid on the pads while bleeding the lines. This will cause a binding and shuddering when you apply brake pressure. This will also make you think the lines are not bled properly because of the increased pedal pressure you are putting on the wet/lubricated front pads. If so, replace the pads. Don't try washing them with aerosol cleaner cause it takes more time and money than simply changing them.

If the hose kinked or twisted it may be collapsed inside, I would replace it and go from there.
