No brakes

Hi. I have an 86 560SL. I'm trying to fix the brakes here.

It all started with the pedal getting very spongy and eventually losing the rear brakes all together. Checked for leaks. Absolutely none. So I changed the master cylinder. Bench bled it. After installation went to bleed rear brakes. Nothing came out. It's got to be the ABS control unit right?

I would appreciate any feed back! Thank you very much.

UPDATE: Front and rear brakes don't work. The brake light is on.
The brakes won't pump up any pressure. My theory is the fluid is swirling inside the ABS unit without being distributed to the wheels.\

Any thoughts on that forum?
