Re: bleeding abs module???

Here's a link to a great article that explains why/how a typical ABS module is bled. It also explains why you need a scan tool to do it properly on vehicles without bleeders on their ABS modules.

http://www.aa1car.com/library/abs_bleeding.htm

Keep in mind that this procedure isn't typically necessary unless you've replaced a component upstream of the ABS module (or if you've let air enter the system upstream of the master cylinder). So for example, if you're bleeding your brakes and you let the master cylinder run dry, air has entered the system and you will have to bleed the ABS module. Failure to do so can result in an inoperable ABS system.

Re: bleeding abs module???

X2 with everything msca said. Hopefully the dealer quoted you $500 for the whole repair job, and not just to bleed the system. Imeh's suggestion is good also, if you are doing the repair urself, bleed the system normally, see if you have a good pedal when done, then get abs to actuate by slamming brakes, if you still have a good pedal after that, ur done, if not, expect to pay about $100-150 to have the abs system bled via scan tool.

Msca-+rep to you, for taking the time to educate a member

dgora-

IMEH- we've had to bleed more than one abs system via scantool after opening the system on many occasions so i cant say i agree with your statements 100%
