Default Bowing brake lines/ABS light

my dad has a 95 2500 4x4 i've replaced the back line from the divider block behind the left front tire and bled out the whole system but now it blew one of the front lines at the divider. have not found if its from the booster or to the right wheel. but now not only dose it leak like crazy but the ABS light is on. Will i have to take it in to have the code cleared when i fix it? or will the computer clear on its own then it no longer picks up a pressure drop? any tech help will be help.

I'm thinking that you should also have a brake warning light, but I digress... Once you get the air out, you should be light free, if not, crack a line or bleeder on the other half of the system, to force the plunger tripping the light to the opposite end of its travel, then bleed the other side off a little til the lights are off. Once you get a feel for how much juice it takes to move the divider plunger to the middle, it'll be a snap. There used to be other ways to force that thing to center, but this works for me and the old iron I drive, theres a lot more power in hydraulics than there is in my hand pushing pins back and forth.
