Has anyone ever had to remove the ABS controller from a 99-02 Silverado and
had to bleed the lines after reinstalling? It seems that there is an air
bubble somewhere, my pedal goes to the floor and doesn't seem to "Pump Up".
When I crack open the bleeders the fluid doesn't squirt out either.....more
just trickles out.
I believe that you might have to use a scan tool
so that you can perform an "automated bleed"
sequence. It just cycles the solenoids in the ABS
hydraulic module to get rid of the air in the module.
First thing to do is to perform a normal manual
bleed procedure, then you perform the automated
bleed procedure, and then finish off with another
manual bleed procedure. Fun, eh? If you don't
understand what I just said, go take the vehicle
to a professional.
You may not be looking in the right section. But the ABS
automated bleed procedure is there in the antilock section
for those years. It's not always necessary, but in the case
of the OP's complaint, it might be necessary.
