Pump pedal if still no brakes, improper installiation if no problem before! Recheck your work.

I have pumped the pedal a lot

I just changed my front pads. Had no pedal, I (1) looked at brake fluid level, had to suck some out. (2) I had someone in car, I had fluid reservoir cap off, had him push pedal down on way, then placed cap on and had him release pedal. did this a few times and very pleased with the feel of the pedal.

may not be enough fluid in master cylinder. no fluid no pressure to components.

Fluid is full I believe the problem is with the ABS module that is separate from the master cylinder.might have back filled when I compressed the calipers did not know about this module before doing the brake pads.. Can I bleed this this module or reset the brake system.
