Discovering a problem after doing your own car maintenance can be disheartening. These could be some reasons you have no brake pressure after bleeding your brakes:
  • Air in the brake lines
  • Brake fluid leak somewhere in the system (check your fluid level to make sure it’s remained at the right amount)
  • Faulty seal in the master cylinder
  • Piston stuck in the master cylinder bore
If you do not have luck troubleshooting, a mechanic should be able to help you identify and correct the problem.
