Vehicle is 1995 GMC Sierra 1500 4X$ 155,000mi.
I bought it used and the brakes were marginal. The ABS module, master
cylinder, and pads were replaced. Later, I replaced the rear wheel
cylinders, shoes, hardware, and had the drums turned. The brake pedal is
still inconsistent and a bit soft. I think there's air in the abs module
because when the abs activates the pedal will just about go to the floor.
Afterwards, the pedal firms up and feels pretty good, but after awhile it
gets inconsistent again.
The local chevy dealer wants $150 to bleed the brakes on their scan(m)
system. Is there any way to cycle the ABS remotely so I can bleed the
brakes? I've heard that some will drive the vehicle and forcefully brake to
get the abs system to cycle and then quickly try to bleed them, but there's
gotta be a better way.....
Any ideas out there? TIA.
