The rear brake line blew out half way back. I drove the van for 2 or 3 short trips with just front brakes. I replaced the brake line and am trying to bleed the back brakes, but when I have someone hold down the brake pedal while I open the bleeder valve, nothing happens. Is there some component that needs reset to allow fluid into the back system again? Also, the brake light on the dash is on.
