Question about 1994 Honda Accord
If you did not replace the calipers or wheel cylinders or you did not open the bleeder screws than there is no reason to bleed the brakes. Most brake services where just the brake pads or shoes are replaced are done without bleeding the brakes.
The only time you need to bleed the brakes is if you replace a caliper, wheel cylinder, brake line, brake hose, or master cylinder.
You can also bleed or flush the brakes as maintenance. Brake fluid is hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture. Over time this moisture will reduce the boiling point of the break fluid. Lower boiling point means that under heavy braking the brake fluid can get hot enough to boil. Once it boils you get air bubbles and lose your braking ability. So flushing/bleeding the brake system every once and a while just makes good sense.

I am a hydraulic technician and I can tell you that air is a killer in the hydraulic system.
Start from the rear and work your way forward. I f you are using the two person method, make sure the second person keeps the master cylinder full. If the fluid level dropped anywhere in between pressing and releasing the brakes....you have a lot of air in the system.
Make sure you are tightening the bleed valve when the brake pedal is full pressed.
Remeber...start from the rear brakes first, then do the front.

SOURCE: how to bleed brakes
Sounds like the proportioning valve is stuck. You may need to break a front bleeder loose and hit the pedal the unseat the valve. Then blead the rearbrakse and then bleed the wheel where you broke the bleeder loose. That should work.

try this. open the two bleeder screw at the rear calipers. leave it open untill the fluid drips generously. close the bleeder. try the brakes. if it works bleed it the nornal way. note: make sure you dont run out of fluid in the master cylinder
