Have a brake issue! Please help!!

So I need help!!! I got new front brake calipers and rotors and they are fine but my rear brakes aren't locking up I hit the brake pedal but you can still spin the rear wheel, but when I pull up e-brake you can't spin the wheel. Has anyone ever had a problem like this?? Please help!

Have you checked the caliper slides?Can you get fluid out of the bleeders?

Cherish those around you,for at the blink
of an eye,they can be gone.

Yeah I bled them multiple times and they still won't lock up all the way... But now I got other brake lines with abs and all so I'm gonna redo everything to do with brakes on it!

I had a similar issue when I replaced my rear calipers. I would get fluid through but in my case my e-bake wouldn't even hold very well. My buddy who is a mechanic said to hit the pedal with a mallet. I did and it worked. Just a thought. Good luck
