I will assume it is a front wheel drive, which would make ratcheting sound being caused by a faulty CV joint.

to bleed brakes you need two people, you start with farthest from brake resivior, there should be like a little valve on the back of each brake caliper and behind brake drums. valve appears to look like it should have tube connected to it. it will be fairly small and around brake line coming into respective wheel. one person in car one person out, person in pump brake pedal several times and hold to floor, person out, have wrench and open valve person in car keeps pedal to floor until person out so valve is reclosed, do this procedure several times each wheel, all the while watching brake fluid level, if you run out of fluid or person in lets up before valve is closed air will get in lines and possibly caause permanent damage to master cylinder

ABS light and traction light and no cruise control


how on earth would the blind know what is wrong.?
scan it? yet?
btw, newer cars cut cruise feature for any signs of danger.
new laws...
the traction needs ABS to work ,so forget that and fix ABS.
ABS needs 2 things to work , brakes and ABS.

so if brakes are bad, then ABS will get upset.
after all, if it cant brake right, how can the puter save you?
if brakes are known to be ok (inspections work here)
but in this case it was BREACHED by you, with out reading the book first.
then scan the ABS. (omg? code for dead sensor?) nah, you caused it..
easy

ABS resets every key on. so...
my guess, if ABS was happy before your actions( you never said)
then you got air in to the system. and failed to follow the FSM instructions on bleeding brakes, in ABS car.

front caliper, did you block the hose with cap, so it didn't allow air to the modulator? oops... never just let them drip... or . max pain.
bleed it again, (using any or all 5 ways to do so, bleeding is skill thing) (many modulators can not just be simply bled)

now Ill quote the 2012 fSM for you , under brakes

Data: -----------------------------------------------------------------
ABS Brake Bleeding
STANDARD PROCEDURE - ABS BRAKE BLEEDING

ABS system bleeding requires conventional bleeding methods plus use of a scan tool. The procedure involves performing a base brake bleeding, followed by use of the scan tool to cycle and bleed the HCU pump and solenoids. A second base brake bleeding procedure is then required to remove any air remaining in the system.

Perform base brake bleeding, (Refer to Brakes - Standard Procedure)(Refer To List 1).

Connect scan tool to the Data Link Connector.

Select ANTILOCK BRAKES, followed by MISCELLANEOUS, then ABS BRAKES. Follow the instructions displayed. When scan tool displays TEST COMPLETE, disconnect scan tool and proceed.

Perform base brake bleeding a second time, (Refer to Brakes - Standard Procedure)(Refer To List 1).

Top off master cylinder fluid level and verify proper brake operation before moving vehicle.

there are 5 ways to bleed brakes (not counting ABS)
which one you using>?
  1. Gravity (LOL)
  2. 2 man rule
  3. MC power bleeder tool.
  4. tail end fitting reverse power bleed tool?
  5. vacuum tool?
we can not guess that , unless said. and is key to success.

How to activate abs motor


what are you doing, forgot to say ,did you?
my wild guess is , you are bleeding brakes????
it takes a special scan tool to do that. called DRB.

lets now read the manual. the FSM
and read page 34 under brakes, on the ZJ
if bleeding the system. READ PAGE 38

so no DRB?
id google all day to see if some other tool does this procedures.
i hope you get lucky.

the step cycles the motor and solenoids, not just the motor.

Bleed brakes for 2005 prius


release? explain what that means.
what parts were disconnected? MC, tell what you did.
brakes good, bleed, no bad
brakes bad, parts pulled, now bad bleed,???? just a clue.here.
if you open a fitting north of the ABS main unit, you will be in trouble.


did you read the FSM on PRIUS< if not why not>?
got ABS,? sure...
some cars with ABS, have very specail rules and steps for
bleeding ABS. , including factory scan tools that must modulate
the ABS solenoids to clear air !
RTM.
or alldata.com/
i bounce in and read now for you.
it says.
Bleeding the brakes requires the use of the Toyota Hand-Held tester, or other appropriate scan tool. Follow the operating procedures of the Toyota Hand-Held tester, or other appropriate scan tool when bleeding the hydraulic brake system.

Before fiddling any car with ABS, google your car
see what others did wrong.... save lots of grief.
and a tow to a shop.
