Default 2002 Astro AWD brake bleed problem

After replacing front pads and rotors, and replacing bleeder screws, I cannot seem to get brake fluid to bleed. Reservoir is full. Any suggestions?

Did the master cylinder run out of fluid? If so you will need to bleed the cylinder first.

Why did you replace the bleeders? No matter, you are going to be bleeding the brake fluid out until it has no air. You can pressure bleed it or gravity bleed it.
