Most likely it needs to be bled. The rear pedal on the 1500 operates both the front and rear brakes, so the bleeding procedure is a bit more complex. You can find the description in the service manual, however.

Left front and rear are linked. Bleed the front first, then the rear. Vacuum bleeder is the easiest way I have found.
