Slowly did not have any brake pedal bled all 4 brakes manually
Got a little bit of pedal back. Drove a while pedal got soft again.
Replace the brake booster, master cylinder and front calipers. Also, rotors and shoes bench bled the master cylinder first then the brakes with the new calipers bled also.
Still have no brake pedal for stopping going to bleed the back calipers soon
In your brake bleeding YouTube, you recommended a “fancy pants scanner”
Do you think it will rectify my problem with the ABS and traction control pump if you believe that’s my problem?

Hi,

As far as a scanner, no. There is no automated bleed procedure for this vehicle, so it won't help. If you haven't bled the rear, you should do it. Start at the wheel furthest from the master cylinder (right rear) and work toward the closest.

I attached the directions from the manual for bleeding the system. They indicate traditional bleeding or using a vacuum bleeder. Both directions are included.

Let me know if this helps. Also, let me know if you are able to get a pedal if you pump the brake pedal.

Take care,

Joe
