I've had an issue as so many have had with the ABS Module on the car listed above SE. The ABS valve(a) apparently get stuck open and cause a spongy pedal and problems braking. There is a recall for the same problem on Fusions and other models which use the same ABS Module, but Focus did not get the recall.
Anyway, I replaced the ABS Module and bled the brakes, the pedal was still very spongy. I re bled the brakes, still spongy. I got a scan tool and performed an ABS Service Bleed to each wheel about 10 times, still spongy. There was a lot of air in the system, but I can't seem to see any more bubbles coming out (unless they're very tiny bubbles, I'm not really sure - see video linked below.) I'm out of brake fluid now, so I'm going to go to the store and buy more. I am fairly certain the master cylinder did not run dry, but I will bleed it if I have to, but would like assistance in that.
Is there a way to easily diagnose where the air would be trapped by isolating the issue to a wheel, etc? I also would like some assistance in that if possible. Thanks.
have the same problem?
