I’ve changed brake pads and caliber on front driver side on 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Now brakes won’t prime. I’ve bleed the brakes and still have no brakes. Can anybody give me some insight of what may be going on? Thanks

Howdy and welcome to the forum from Iowa.

Was the system taking fluid as you bled/pumped?

Ok, you've got me. So I'll ask a request and a few questions:
Can you post a pic of the caliper and such that you replaced?
And check your part number and new caliper. Did you get the correct side so its not upside down? Bleeder screw should be on top. Stranger things have happened than a parts store giving out the wrong part.

And just because...
-You're doing this with the engine off right?
-didn't let fluid get too low and suck in air?
-only took the driver side apart?
-bleeding manually or using a vacuum tool?

Question? Why did you change just the drivers side, was it acting up? Sometimes the rubber line can become defective causing a stop valve, if you were experiencing problems before, might be further back than the caliper. I recently experienced this on the passenger side, was causing my brakes to grab a bit on that side and lock.
