Hey guys! So happy I am as always to share the updated operation instruction of Autel Scan Tools on the vehicles. I figured out recently that the Autel Maxicheck Pro can do an OBD2 Auto bleed on vehicles with ABS brakes.
I ran into a situation where I thought maybe my ABS module had air trapped in it and everywhere online everybody said it would tale a GM Tech II scanner to do the Auto bleed and everybody online shows that they will bleed taking place but they’ve all got either a snap-on or a tech II some high-end expensive scanner to do this process.
I tried to activate the ABS module to move the air out of my 2006 GMC Sierra half ton rear drum brake truck. But there actually was air in the ABS module I could not get the pedal to come back, kind of stuck at this issue. But lucky as I am to have purchased this tool from auteldiag.com, problem is fixed successfully.
Let’s see together how to do it! Specific steps will be provided as follows.
SPECIFIC operation procedures:
Please remember to connect the car with the MaxiCheck Pro using OBDII cable and turn the ignition on before this auto bleed brakes operation.
Go to [ABS/SRS]>>[USA]>>[GM]
Then, the screen will prompt the message of “Processing date, please wait”.
It will be very soon to come to next screen of choose your vehicle model year and type and manufacture stuff.
I have to mention one thing, for some reason, when you do a normal braid engine light scan ,it automatically detects the vehicle but when you do this ABS deal, you gotta answer all the information for the vehicle manually.
So mine is a light duty truck GMC, let me choose the number 2 on the screen.
After that, it will ask you to choose you car’s air conditioning type.
Here, I will choose the second one for my truck.
As for the Gross Vehicle Weight, the first one fits my truck.
Next, it will ask you to choose you vehicle’s Brake System. Click on the [Rear drum brakes] to move on.
Two options will be displayed on the screen of “Control Unit”. Choose the first one.
Then it will enter into the “Function Menu”, in which five options are listed are there.
Choose [Special functions]and [Automated bleed] to move on.
In the screen of “Automated bleed”, press [Continue]>>[Start]>>[Yes] to get the job started.
Supply hold brake and let off the pedal for several times. The screen will tell you the message of “No DTCs, Auto bleed completed”.
Hit okay and then back to the “Home” screen of this tool.
Congratulations! Yeah! My truck has not fault code with this Auto Bleed ABS Brakes.
Thanks for stay tuned to my tech updating. You guys can get one from the website of auteldiag.com
