I know this is an old thread but I have a similar problem with my Japan-built 2001 Camry CE V6 with 4 wheel disc brakes, ABS but no traction control. Note that mine is also a Canadian car... (I know that the 2001 CE model wasn't available with the V6 or disc brakes in the US, but here we couldn't get the V6 and disc brakes in the LE model).
I replaced the front passenger side caliper last year and I didn't block the brake hose when I removed it. When I reinstalled the new one, air has gotten in the master cylinder and I didn't succeed at removing the air in the system. I thought there must have been air trapped in the ABS system but I had no idea how to bleed that. I've been driving the car like that for a year and a half, the brakes work and the ABS too but the pedal is still low, very low. I tried to bleed the brakes again and it didn't improve the brake pedal height.
So this week, when I had the car on the lift for another repair, I decided to try to bleed the brakes for a third time, still didn't work, tried to bleed the master cylinder, no success, tried to bleed the brake lines again, no improvement. I didn't find anything else to do, no bleeder elsewhere on the brake system or on the ABS module.
So I ordered a new master cylinder, replaced it and still have the exact same problem. What am I missing?
