Question about 2000 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab
That is because you don't have the special tool to bleed the ABS system. The tool holds the hydraulic pressure valves open so the system can be bled, this tool cost $100's

Why were the brake lines replaced?
Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...
if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.

get a one man bleeder kit from halfords (about £7) and then you can go around the car and bleed the brakes without a assistant, you just attach the tool to the nipple on the caliper, loosen the nut, press the brake pedel a few times till there is no more bubbles in the hose and then move on to the next corner, there is a specific way to go around the car but if you start at the back and finish at the front it should be ok

Oh yes you can. If you are having trouble with the ole pump and hold method, There is a better way. Gravity bleed has never failed me and it sure makes it easy when you don't need to have help. Here is how its done. Open and top off your brake master cylinder. Leave the cap loose and start at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder. Right rear.then left rear, then right frt, then lft frt. open the bleeder and let the brake fluid drip untill the fluid drips steady and without air. You will see the air bubbles popping out if there is air in the system. Tap the brake line with ta wrench to break any clinging bubbles loose. Do that with each wheel in the above order. Keep an eye on the fluid level in the master cylinder, don't let it run low. keep it as full as possible chkg it often. Do not pump your brakes at any time.Remember to tap the line on the wheel you are workin on. See! One man job. When finished, chk all your bleeders to make sure they at snug and fully closed, then taqke the garden hose and was the brake fluid off the back of each wheel. Brake fluid is water solubleand will rinse right off.. Top master cylinder and cap it before getting any water around it, Even a drop or two splashed into it with ruin the braike fluid. Good luck and take a brake. Always use caution on initial braking.
