you are saying that the brake light is on know after flushing the brake fluid and you are 1/2 done ---- maybe the fluid in the resevoir is low ---could just be that the fluid level sensor is bad

it isn't uncommon for a perportioning valve to be stuck if you had a brake problem i have had to open a bleeder and tap on it or even bleed the side thats working to get the other side to work

re

Yeah i only got half way done bad dust storm rolled in didnt want master cyl open with dust flyin around. the fluid level is normal. So by finishing the brake bleed and trying to bleed the perportioning valve it should clear it up? I can still peg the brake pedel to the floor with out effort even after flushing out the lines and bleeding the rears.
