Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replace brake calipers, rotors, and pads...
But now my brakes won't work all in the
front. I even bleed out the brake line... What
did I do wrong?

1 Answer


Try turning on the key and then bleeding the brakes, sometimes an air bubble will get in the ABS unit and needs forced out.
