Try bleeding the brakes with the key turned on, I had a similar problem with my exploder, bled them with the key on and bingo they worked perfectly.

Bleed the entire brake system and when you do this,always start with the bleeder valve farthest from the master cylinder. Also bleed the baster cylinder first. http://www.wikihow.com/Bleed-Car-Brakes http://www.caranddriver.com/features/how-to-bleed-your-brakes-feature/ Do it right and do it once Bob Lech
