So I bought a 96 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 5.0L that was in an accident months back and has been sitting since Feb. I have tried bleeding the brakes, changing the calipers, pads, rotors, master cylinder and booster and still have no brake pedal! What do I need to do now??? The o my thing I have no changed is the ABS Pump and seeing that I can’t find one new for this vehicle I’m kinda in a pickle!!! Any advice is better than none... Let me know what I should do next!? Thank you all!

The fluid has to go somewhere. If there are no leaks then I would keep bleeding. Does the pedal pump up when you bleed or always go to the floor?
If it does not pump up then there is still air in the system.
Good luck,
Rich

I have a lot of pressure if I bleed them with the truck off but as soon as I start it, it goes to the floor... but as long as I unplug the abs pump, I have just enough pressure to still stop the vehicle...

Google 'bleed ford abs 99 explorer' and loads of good info will come up.
It seems that you need to fool the abs to come on somehow.
The 'Forscan' software might be of help as well as it has an ABS bleed function.
