I hit something and somehow managed to break a brass fitting connecting the brake line to the caliper. Lost all my brake fluid on the ride home. I removed the caliper, replaced the brass fitting, reconnected the brake line, filled the brake actuator, bled the brakes, checked for leaks.
The brakes still seems sloppy and the actuator moves a lot. When I disconnect the reverse plug/power to the actuator there is no engagement of the brakes to stop me from backing up.
Did I damage the actuator by driving with no fluid?
Maybe I still have air in the system?

Anyone have a troubleshooting tip or suggestion?

Thank you.

Not an expert, but it's not a very complicated system. No fluid shouldn't affect it other than not working while empty. Has to be air, or you have filled it and bled it with coupling compressed so it's got no way to build pressure and compress more??
