Could be your master cylinder.

Bleeding brakes should be done at the farthest brake from the master cylinder first. Bleed the right rear, left rear, right front then the left front brake. The air could be in the rear brakes or the ABS unit. If the air is in the ABS unit a trip to the dealership may be required so that their electronic machine can be connected to open the ports in the ABS unit and then bleed the brakes. Something else, are the bleed screws on the caliper up on the top or low on the bottom? They both should be up towards the top of the caliper.

Clarification for the above....There are some calipers that can be installed on either side of the vehicle and if they are installed on the wrong side the bleeders will be low and you will never get all the air out because air rises to the top in the caliper. I do NOT know if this vehicle is one of those or not, just throwing this information out there.
