i put new brake pads on the front of my ea s-pak and they wont bleed. back brakes will lock up but nothing on the front. bled boath front and also bled the marster cylinder, whats wrong?? it is as if the fluid isn't going into the front. :/ also, the brake fail light is always on!

when you say it wont bleed, do you meen no fluid comes out? or do you meen it bleeds but brakes dont work?

if no fluid comes out, the bleed nipples are probably rusted and blocked.
if fluid comes out when you bleed, but no brakes. calipers are seized..

You need to check many things.....master cyl isn't bypassing, check for siezed caliper slides, and pistons, hoses aren't blocked or half blocked, or kinked.....or blocked bleeder nipples as suggested before.
