Question about 2003 GMC Yukon XL
I want to bleed my brakes on 2003 Yukon XL. After replacing pads and rotors I feel there should be better brake ''feel''. I did minimal bleeding but want to do a complete service. With ABS what is best method beside shaving the engine running to make sure pump is operating> Please describe parts and or method
If you forced the pads back into the calipers without loosening the bleeders you probably forced gunk into the abs modulator valves. Sometimes doing the automated bleed proceedure (need Tech or Bi Directional Scanner) will bring things back to life.

A very common thing, I've had symptoms like that before. For some reason the larger GM vehicles around that year seem to have a low petal symptom after doing the brakes, almost feeling spongy. Don't worry, just take it for a test drive and put about 5 to 10 miles on it. When the new pads seat in it usualy solves the problem. If it is still doing it, try to bleed the abs module, just like regular brake bleeding, but there is a bleeder on the abs module located near the master cyllender. also make sure you're not leaking brake fluid, from a line or caliper.
