ABS break system not working properly

I just installed all new break parts and lines. When I bleed the breaks the pedal will harden up after a few pumps, when I start it the pedal goes soft and right to the floor, what am I doing wrong?

Breaks spongy go all the way to floor before a slowly loud grinding stop

Some ABS equipped vehicles require a scanner to activate ABS valves to allow for proper bleeding of air.

Brakes start working very low in the pedal. abs light comes on from time to time.

The low pedal is for the most part, worn front pads

The check light and ABS is a System malfunction,
common is a Wheel Speed Sensor

Need codes, then diagnose.

Best bet is a repair shop

I have a 88 S-10 with 4 wheel disk breaks,I have a new master cylinder and proportion valve,and all new break lines, I am trying to bleed the breaks but cant get a good Q is how much pedal should...

Power and manual have the same equivalent
Power is just easier to apply than manual
To BLEED brakes properly and this is the only way which will be correct is to start at the furthest point and work your way to the closest point upon completion. If not done this way air will be still in the lines

Can't get brake fluid from abs into lines after installing new brake line on a 2000 chevy silverado

I read this same problem all the time, the reason u can't bleed the lines is that a special tool is required that pluge into the ABS and holds the hydraulic valves in the ABS control open for bleeding, there is no way around this.

Problem with bleeding my breaks

You need a special tool that plugs into the ABS hydraulic control unit and holds the POP-IT valves open to bleed the air out, unless you have that tool you will keep spinning your wheels, most brake shops have a tool to do this or the dealer of course will have it.

1989 Chevy pickup we replaced all of the break lines and master

There is probably still just some air in the system, it only takes a small amount to have no pedal. Did you bench bleed the master cyl before installing? Start bleeding the brakes again, start with the wheel the greatest distance from the master cyl. bleeding until no air is evident, working your way closer to the master cyl, doing the closest wheel to it last. Check all the new brake line connections. A slightly loose connection would allow air into the system, making it impossible to bleed it all out. Make sure the master cyl level never drops too low, or you will be pulling in air and have to start all over. Good luck.

1995 chevy z71 k1500 350. breaks wont work

"have put all new breaks, lines, sensors." For the Mechanic to get the brake fluid in the line to the calibers. It has to be pump by stepping on the brakes pedal. You said "no breaks" so that did not happen.

My question is does the master cylinder work? A lot of work was done that was not needed to be done.
The Dealer will not do any thing if they did not work on the brakes. If the Dealer did this job then you can complain about them.

The black box you are referring to is call ABS control module. It should be on under the hood on the driver side of the radiator. These units do fail.
You can go the the Auto store and ask, if they carry it then they will know where it is locate. You can also go to Dealer parts department, they will carry the part and can show you where it is locate.
If you do replace the control module, make sure the brake line is properly bleed of all air.
I do hope this help you
