Brake Failure light flashing

After flushing the brake fluid the brake failure light is flashing 4 times per second. Also, there is no servo-assist. I cannot hear the pump when I apply the brakes. I have only residual braking.

Apparently I have done something wrong while flushing the fluid. I did notice that while the flushing wheel circuits it took a long time for to empty the funnel.

However both the hand and foot brake lever are firm. It appears there is no air in the system.

Does anyone have any idea of the cause of the brake failure?

Thanks in advance.

I found the problem. The servo connection was not fully inserted into the plug. Brake failure light no longer is flashing.
