LOW pressure brake pedal?

long story short, my rear brake hose ripped, the brake pedal lost all pressure and to stop, the pedal had to have been ALL the way down practically pushing it out of my floor boards. Fixed it up the following day, pretty much drove it straight to the shop after my dsc and brake light came on. Fixed it up, bled the brakes, but now, still very low pressure.

will it start to tighten or is there another problem here? biggest issue is if any reason i need to slam the brakes suddenly, the stopping time has increased dramatically and now i just drive with such caution... and i hate it...

thnx in advanced

Will have to get hands on a GT1 or Isis to Cycle the ABS Unit so you can fully bleed the system or try the pressure bleeder and hope for the best.

Well its been bled already, would they have used something other than a pressure bleeder?
