Question about 1991 Ford Thunderbird
The power brakes do not work at all bleed the front brakes just fine but when i bleed the back i got nothing out so there is no fluid to the back the night before they worked
Take the cap off of your master cylinder fill and open the bleeders on the back brakes and let them gravity bleed

Does sound like you need a new master cylinder. On a 2000 you wont need to back bleed. You will just need to follow the instruction and bleed the master and all four points. you will probably need to bleed the ABS block and proportioning valve but only if they have bleeders on them.

You need to replace the round Ball (accumulator ball). It's not holding pressure. You have front brake only. Is the pedal hard as a rock, the red brake light stays on, abs light stays on?

You have a new defective master cylinder, happens all the time. pull it off and take it in for an exchange and buy new not rebuilt. The rebuilts do not last.

It will take 2 of you. 1 fill up the resevoir.2 you need to open the bleed nipple on the furthest brake from the master.3 have somone pump the brake once then close the nipple have them pump it again and hold their foot down on the brake, while they have their foot down on the brake open the nipple untill all of the air and fluid comes out, then close the nipple. Make sure you keep the resevoir topped up. Do this severel times until only fluid comes out of the nipple. Repeat on all of the wheels. You can buy a kit that pressurises the system so you can do it on your own but they are expensive for a 1 time deal.
