Make sure the hydrallic brake resevoir is full of brake fluid.

This will require 2 people -
ONe person moves the coupler in a rear ward direction and the brakes should apply immediately. Typically with disc brakes the 2nd person could slip a piece of paper between the rotor and the disc pad from the back side of the wheel. When the coupler is moved rear ward the paper will be clamped between the brake pad and rotor.
