It sounds like the flexible rubber hose has deteriorated. First of all release the bleeder. WARNING; Before doing this be sure that it wont spurt in any part of your body & it wont contact the paint of the car. If the caliper released. Most likely your culprit is the rubber hose has deteriorated inside as it becomes a one way check valve. Nice name where did you find your nickname? I am not sure if you need any a special module to bleed your ABS equipped car. Good luck on the repairs. Keep me posted. Also check for Joe F. links maybe it can give you more insight for your application. Joe F. can also help you, he is a GM guru.

I agree with OM.

Start with changing both rubber hoses. If that doesn't work, the calipers are locked or you have an ABS issue...job for a professional.
