Question about 2008 Cadillac Escalade Ext
Cannot get air out of front brakes on 2008 escalde ext, tried bleeding according to plug in scanner but still cannot get air out. tried gravity flow and pumping peddle and opening bleeder with no results.
Some have bleeder screws on the abs control module if this does not help to remove the air i have used syringes filling them up and pressure filling the caliper and air returns to master cylinder takes about 3 ounces of brake fluid per side.

you need to bleed all four corners and when doing so use a hose from the bleeder valve into a clear jar half full of brake fluid. Keep The Hose Under The Level Or Air Will Get Back Into The System.
When Bleeding Close The Valve And Have Someone Push The Brake Pedal 1,2,3 Hold Then While The Person Is Still Holding The Brake Slightly Open The Valve Then Keep Doing It Until You Don't Even Get A Bubble. Do This On All 4 Wheels And You'll Be Good To Go.
The More Air That Comes Out The Harder The Pedal Will Get. Make Sure To Keep Filling The Reservoir Cause If It Empty's You'll Have To Start All Over.

to bleed the brake line somebody as to pump the brake pedal
3 to 4 times and somebody opens the bleeder on the brake caliper
starting by the right rear wheel, then the left rear wheel, then front right wheel anf finishing with the front left wheel bleeder.
to bleed the master cylinder is the same principle pump pedal 3,4 times
but this time open the line at the master cylinder starting with the rear hoses
hope it is helpful

Sounds like you have a door mode actuator failed. This is fairly common. Sometimes the door actually breaks. You may have to remove the whole HVAC box to fix it if the door broke
