Welcome to the forum. Forgot to cap the brake hose? Consider taking it in for service. You won't be able to bleed it properly without a scan tool that can work the ABS.

Hey EinST just out of curiosity is that something you can do with the mighty vacs or the one person bleeder? i had this same thing happen and i mighty vaced it and it seemed to be fine, but now you have me wondering if i should have it redone with the scan tool? biggest fear is loosing braking ability

The scan tool is for working the valves in the BPMV when the brake pedal stays soft despite manual bleeding. If your pedal is firm, it isn't necessary unless you're going for a complete fluid change.
