if you left the caliper in place while bleeding,, I would suggest that you still have air in the rear system...
step back and have a look at where the bleeder is,,, and where the MC is,,, the MC port is lower than the bleeder,, and the bleeder is not the highest point on the caliper,,, so.... you need to address all this and re bleed it..
try this,,, remove the caliper,,, leave the pads in,,, put a lock between the pads,,, then lower the caliper to the ground,, or lower than the mc,, then open the bleeder,,, pull and hold the lever,,, and close the bleeder,,, continue until all air is removed... be sure to hold the bleeder to the highest point...
then reinstall,, and pump the lever,,, slowly until the pads contact the rotor and lever travel is at a minimum,, 5hen check the light,,, check the front switch as well,,,, the front is an electric switch ther rear is a pressure operated hydraulic,, with 2 wires at the top of the switch..
