front right caliper
Bleeding the brakes rear is fine & brake lights work. Now the front right caliper nothing I try to pump up front brake & don't notice a change in the handle, left side bleeder valve I get brake fluid shooting out no air, but the right side I get nothing plus no brake light from front brakes & the brakes seem to work fine. Do I need to rebuild the caliper on that side and replace the front brake light switch? anyone run into this problem before if so let me know how you fixed it or what I need to do?

are you aware that the right side caliper works in conjunction with the rear caliper?

I had to replace the front brake switch to get the brake light to work when I applied the front brakes.
