Keep lots of fluid handy and get a helper. Open the reservoir and fill it up then get under the car and on the back side of each brake cylinder where the line connects there is a small valve that looks like a grease zerk. Have your helper pump the brakes until they have some pressure and hold pressure on the pedal while you loosen the valve ( you will need a 6 or 7mm wrench) fluid and some air will come spraying out and the pedal will go to the floor, have your helper maintain pressure on the pedal until you close the valve and do it again until no more air comes out with the fluid. Add more fluid to the reservoir and move to the next wheel, keep going until you have done all 4 and you are finished. My advise is to go one or two more times after the air is gone to be sure it is all out and remember to keep the reservoir full.

Isuzu rodeo 2000 ls 2wd found one vehicle speed sensor where is the second?

I think you may be referring to the ABS wheel speed sensor. There should be one on each wheel hub ... quite often opposite side to the brake caliper. You should see a wire going to it.

Anti lock brake bleed

I would have the entire brake system checked out by certified brake technicians. Would not want to risk a "maybe now fixed" approach with brakes.

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

Rear brakes might be locked up???

Firstly it might be an idea to release the brakes so you can get the vehicle to a suitable place for repair. Something has gone wrong in the brake master cylinder or the pressure valve (if fitted) although I suspect the former. The hydraulic pressure can be released by loosening the nut on the brake pipe that goes to the rear brakes or undoing the bleed nipples on the rear cylinders a couple of turns. Try to bleed the brakes enough to get them working and then drive to a place of repair. Otherwise remove the master cylinder, strip down and repair or replace.
