Start from the rr to lr then rf to lf replace any brakefluid lost from master cylinder before and after each wheel is bled you will need an assistant to depress the brakes as you bleed them or better to use a rubber hose that will fit over the bleeder screw and submerge the other end into a container of brake fluid open the bleeder screw approximately 1\2 turn and gently push brake pedal to floor and slowly let up until no bubbles are visible when you depress brake pedal. always start from furthest bleeder and work to closest 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..

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

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.

What is anti lock

If you are referring to "anti-lock brakes", or "ABS", it means that when you depress the brake pedal hard enough, your computer recognizes the pressure and pulsates the brakes to prevent your wheels from locking up and the traditional skidding you see in movies.

ABS stops you quicker in emergency situations.

Bleeding brakes on my 2001 montero sport mitsubishi

I have very bad news brake system + atf = complete brake system replacement. the rubber o-rings and seals that are used in brake systems that are compatible with brake fluid are absolutely not compatible with any other fluid in a vehicle. if you haven\'t used your brakes at all since the atf was put in then suck it out remove and clean brake master reservoir. but if you\'ve driven it and used the brakes it\'s all got to go except the steel brake lines which can be flushed out once you remove the rest of components. and I mean all of them calipers, hoses, master cylinder, abs hydraulic unit it\'s all junk now.

My 2001 Montero Sport is making a grinding noise from the front, it comes and goes. I just changed the brakes, so I know its not that.

Ummm, if it wasn't doing it until AFTER you changed the brakes ...then I would think those brakes aren't in there quite right, or something else in there is misaligned. Coming and going means it most likely isn't wheel bearings. (Worse on hard corners? ...under acceleration? Only when braking? (if so it's the brakes).

I have a 2003 montero sport and the breaks are not bleeding right. I have blead them until the fluid is clear and the breaks are still spongy going to the floor board. Any thoughts?

test your master cylinder and calipers and wheel cylinders. raise one or 2 wheels or 4 if you got the equipement, turn the wheels by hand and have an assistant apply the brakes to see which one/ones are defective. when your brake fluid changes color because of contamination, the first contaminent is rubber from the brake system

ABS light comes on after 20 miles on Montero Sport 2000. It goes off when car is turned off and then on again after 20 or so miles.  Breaks seem to work fine.

ABS light is turned on when there is an anomoly in the Wheel Speed Sensor data coming to the ABS Brake module.

Have the car scanned by a brake specialist who will have an OBD-II ABS Brake Scan Tool.

If you want to diagnose it yourself, Actron makes a very good one that costs about $99 plus shipping depending on where you get it from.

I bought one with shipping included for $116 off of for my car.

Good luck.
