    You don't need a scan tool to bleed the brakes. Have some one pump the pedal 3 times and hold. Open the bleed screw to the wheel you are bleeding to release the fluid and close. Continue this process until all air removed from affected wheel and clear brake fluid comes out

Bleeding the brakes can be done manually with the help of another person. have your helper pump the brakes and hold the pedal until you release the bleeder enough to get air or fluid flowing and then shut off. you can then tell the helper to pump again but only after you have closed the bleeder. do this two times on each wheel starting with the wheel in the rear furthest from the master cylinder. then the other rear wheel then the front wheel furthest from the master cylinder and finally the other front wheel. you should get a better pedal each step. don't let the master cylinder reservoir run dry during this procedure.

How to bleed the brakes on my 2002 Buick rendezvous cxl


If the standard bleeding procedures do not produce an acceptable pedal you will need a scantool that can activate the automated ABS bleed and a pressure bleeding system.
To bleed the brakes use the standard pattern of RR,LR,RF,LF

ABS Automated Bleed Procedure
Caution: Refer to Brake Fluid Irritant Caution in Service Precautions.
Notice: Refer to Brake Fluid Effects on Paint and Electrical Components Notice in Service Precautions.
Important: In most circumstances a base brake bleed is all that is required for most component replacements (such as wheel cylinders, calipers, brake tubes, and master cylinder) except for brake pressure modulator valve (BPMV) replacement.
The following automated ABS bleed procedure is required when one of the following occur:
Manual bleeding at the wheel cylinders does not achieve the desired pedal height or feel.
BPMV replacement
Extreme loss of brake fluid has occurred.
Air ingestion is suspected.
If none of the above conditions apply, use standard bleed procedures.
The auto bleed procedure is used on BOSH 5.3 equipped vehicles. This procedure uses a scan tool to cycle the system solenoid valves and run the pump in order to purge the air from the secondary circuits. These secondary circuits are normally closed off, and are only opened during system initialization at vehicle start up and during ABS operation. The automated bleed procedure opens these secondary circuits and allows any air trapped inside the BPMV to flow out toward the wheel cylinders or calipers where it can be purged out of the system.
Automated Bleed Procedure
Preliminary Inspection
Inspect the battery for full charge, repair the battery and charging system, as necessary.
Connect a scan tool to the data link connector (DLC) and select current and history DTCs. Repair any DTCs prior to performing the ABS bleed procedure.
Inspect for visual damage and leaks and repair, as needed.
Preliminary Setup
Raise and vehicle on a suitable support.
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
Remove all 4 tires, if necessary.
Connect the pressure bleeding tool according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Turn the ignition switch to RUN position, engine off.
Connect a scan tool and establish communications with the ABS system.
Pressurize the bleeding tool to 206 - 241 kPa (30 - 35 psi) .
Performing the Automated Bleed Procedure
Notice: The Auto Bleed Procedure may be terminated at any time during the process by pressing the EXIT button. No further Scan Tool prompts pertaining to the Auto Bleed procedure will be given. After exiting the bleed procedure, relieve bleed pressure and disconnect bleed equipment per manufacturers instructions. Failure to properly relieve pressure may result in spilled brake fluid causing damage to components and painted surfaces.
With the pressure bleeding tool at 206 - 241 kPa (30 - 35 psi) , and all bleeder screws in closed position, select Automated Bleed Procedure on the scan tool and follow the instructions.
The first part of the automated bleed procedure will cycle the pump and front release valves for one minute. After the cycling has stopped the scan tool will enter a cool down mode and display a 3 minute timer. The auto bleed will not continue until this timer expired, and cannot be overridden.
During the next step, the scan tool will request the technician to open one of the bleeder screws. The scan tool will then cycle the respective release valve and pump motor for one minute.
The scan tool will repeat step 3 for the remaining bleeder screws.
With the bleeder tool still attached to the vehicle and maintaining 241 kPa (35 psi) , the scan tool will instruct the technician to independently open each bleeder screw for approximately 20 seconds. This should allow any remaining air to be purged from the brake lines.
When the automated bleed procedure is completed the scan tool will display the appropriate message.
Install all 4 tires, if necessary refer to Tire and Wheel Removal and Installation.
Remove pressure from the pressure bleeding tool and then disconnect the tool from the vehicle.
Depress the brake pedal to gage pedal height and feel. Repeat steps 1-8 until the pedal is acceptable.
Remove the scan tool from the DLC connector.
Install.
Lower the vehicle.
Inspect the brake fluid level in master cylinder.
Road test the vehicle while making sure the brake pedal remains high and firm.
If the vehicle is equipped with a traction control system (TCS), the scan tool will cycle both the ABS and the TCS solenoid valves. This bleed procedure is the same as above.

What do the capped lines on the ehcu do................my brother in law(so called mech.) told me that they were buttons that you had to hold in while bleeding the unit but when my buddy and me went to do...


Bleeder screws , If you haven't replaced the unit you don't need to do anything with them . Don't need to have the vehicle running , just bleed the brakes normally . If you have replaced the Electro-Hydraulic Control Unit you need a factory scan tool to cycle the unit solenoids
Important:
• Use the two-person bleed procedure under the following conditions:
- Installing a new Electro-Hydraulic Control Unit (EHCU) or new Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV).
- Air is trapped in the valve body
• Do not drive the vehicle until the brake pedal feels firm.
• Do not reuse brake fluid that is used during bleeding.
• Use the vacuum, the pressure and the gravity bleeding procedures only for base brake bleeding.
Raise the vehicle in order to access the system bleed screws.
Bleed the system at the right rear wheel first.
Install a clear hose on the bleed screw.
Immerse the opposite end of the hose into a container partially filled with clean DOT 3 brake fluid.
Open the bleed screw 1/2 to one full turn.
Slowly depress the brake pedal. While the pedal is depressed to its full extent, tighten the bleed screw.
Release the brake pedal and wait 10-15 seconds for the master cylinder pistons to return to the home position.
Repeat the previous steps for the remaining wheels. The brake fluid which is present at each bleed screw should be clean and free of air.
This procedure may use more than a pint of fluid per wheel. Check the master cylinder fluid level every four to six strokes of the brake pedal in order to avoid running the system dry.
Press the brake pedal firmly and run the Scan Tool Automated Bleed Procedure. Release the brake pedal between each test.
Bleed all four wheels again using Steps 3-9. This will remove the remaining air from the brake system.
Evaluate the feel of the brake pedal before attempting to drive the vehicle.
Bleed the system as many times as necessary in order to obtain the appropriate feel of the pedal.

2000 Chev Silverado 2500, Brake lines rusted and cracked loosing all fluid. replaced all lines. Got front to bleed sucessfully, but no oil to back brakes. what do I have to do to bleed back brakes?


Try opening a front bleeder and depress the pedal ALL the way,should feel a light "tic" as it reaches the bottom,close the bleeder and try to bleed the rear again,but instead of pumping ,just take the master cover off ,open the rear bleeders and wait 10 min or so for the fluid to gravity bleed out the air. Thinking the proportioning valve is tripped so no fluid is allowed to reach the rear,opening the front should reset the valve . If there is alot of air the valve will just trip again if you pump the pedal,hence the gravity bleed.

Need to bleed brakes on 1981 AMC Eagle 30


Fill the master cylinder with brake fluid, leave the cap off, open bleeder on left front wheel cylinder till fluid begins to come out and close the bleeder. Go to the right front and bleed it, this is gravity bleeding and works fine without a helper to pump the pedal, when fluid starts to come out close bleeder. Now go to the right rear and bleed it the same way. Then lastly, the left rear. Bleed it and you should be done and with a good pedal. If you don't have good pedal, you'll need someone to pump and hold the brake down as you bleed each one from the closest to master cylinder around to the farthest from it in sequence. It's the only way to bleed brakes.

Bleeding brakes by my self?


can't do it by self unless you by a vacuum bleeder or gravity bleed

however, if you have ABS you may find yourself with a spongy pedal after either because you need a scan tool to bleed the ABS system

How do you bleed the brakes to a 2006 hyundai tiburon


Go to the r/r caliper, pump the brake pedal three times and hold down, open bleeder to run fluid out, close bleeder, let foot up off brake pedal. Repeat LR, RF, LF calipers. This is called a pressure bleed. Take note whether you got any air out of the bleeders.
