Hi first of all you should bleed fervist away from the master cylinder,and when you bleed the back brakes are you shore that you kept the reserver full (we all make make mistakes some times)as if not it could have got air in the system,best thing to do is start again and bleed all the brakes and see if that puts it right,if not maybe the master cylinder is faulty,hope this was some help even though it sounds like you know what you are doing.
The best way to bleed the brakes is using a One Person Brake Line Bleeding Kit. sold at most autoparts stores for about $10. It comes with instructions and makes bleeding the brake line a breeze.

Check the fluid level in the resevoir. If it is low then top it up. However, it went low for a reason - maybe it's just because your brake pads starting to wear out or you could possibly have a brake fluid leak.
I had this same problem back in November during a very cold spell.I had an appointment to have some "recall" work done on my 03 passat and told them about the STOP brake light. When I picked up my car, the dealer told me that it just needed some brake fluid??, so they filled it ! Well, I don't know about that, but I haven't seen that pesky STOP warning light since.
Simple way - takes 2 people. Get a small jar, and fill it part way with some brake fluid. Then use a short length of hose (one that fits snugly over the bleed screw), and keep one end in the brake fluid. With the engine off, loosen the bleed screw, and have the brake pedal slowly depressed. Close the bleed screw BEFORE releasing the brake pedal, and repeat until no air bubbles come out the hose. Top up the brake reserve with fluid.
