Using Autoenginuity to bleed ABS

Has anyone used AE to bleed the ABS system successfully. Is there a specific procedure, or is there no service bleed for the ABS on these trucks. I have 4 wheel abs. Thanks.

My '01 has 4 whl ABS. I bleed the system every two years to replace the brake fluid. No special procedure, just start at furthest wheel from the master cyl and work back to the closest. I do use a motive power bleeder so I can do it myself, but that isn't required.

I sent an email to them regarding this, but never got a reply back. I will be subscribing to this thread as well.

I have an AE and have heard that it will do it. Have you tried unsuccessfully or just asking?

Yea I got an error when I tried. With most other things they have amplifying instructions on the screen, and I was surprised to not find them for this operation.

I have always gotten GREAT help when I call AE. You'll talk with the guys that actually write the software. I have had a Beta version (before it was public) while helping them work out a problem that got built into the previous revision. Call 'em tomorrow.

Hi, did you ever get an answer for this? I need to bleed my system because my pedal goes all the way to the floor. I'm tempted to buy the ford expansion but if it doesn't work then I don't want to spend the money. Thanks anyways

Why not try just bleeding the brake system like normal first
