This may not be a direct correlation, but here is what I did after someone stole my cat converter and cut the rear brake line causing the master to empty. This was on a nissan frontier with ABS.

After the replacement of the brake line:

disconnected the battery (nissan recommends this for vehicles with ABS)
opened all the bleeders
added fluid to the master and gravity bled all 4 corners
When that was clear, went back and individually bled 1 corner at a time.
reconnected battery.
pumped up brakes to ensure pressure, gently tested brakes for feel.
went into a empty gravel parking lot, several hard stops to get the abs to engage

That seemed to do the trick for me. YMMV on a Hyundai
