Bad master cylinder. Replace master cylinder.

Pedal was hard prior to replacement so master cylinder would be the problem

Before blaming master cylinder recheck calipers making sure not binding up anywhere and pads are seated correctly in caliper. Also check caliper bolts making sure they are tight also.

Well if everything checked out ok it has to be the master cylinder but if you change out master cylinder and it does the same thing then the problem is somewhere in the work you just done.
