There was once the fluid level in master cylinder reservoir lower than MIN. s
Maybe this caused the problem?

I don't have ABS so the old school way should work fine.

If you have anti-lock brakes, you are supposed to disconnect the battery first. Not sure why or if it matters at all, I have never disconnected the battery to bleed the brakes on anything.
