Your master cylinder did not go empty, did it? Just trying to rule out airlock in master. This was drive-able before you changed pads? Did you use a C-clamp to compress the calipers, instead of opening the bleeders?

Master cylinder did not go empty. Yes it did have brakes before changing them

So sorry a woman trying to find answers

First never cut down a woman for trying to find answers only if she gives up without trying. Known many woman mechanics. Second just a long distance thought your master may have gone or you may just need a power bleed at shop. I am guessing the master never has pressure even when pumped quickly rapidly! There are no leeks? If it does have to go to the shop from here on isn't going to matter. If you have a pipe/tube to thread into bottom of master, point down about a 45*, put finger over end and have someone press brakes. Do you have pressure?

I knew there was a pattern and go here to read it... http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-c5530_ds615817 Although it talks about a ford still same.. Try this first before removing master tubes.....
