  5. Remove all 4 tires, if necessary.
  6.  
  7. Connect the pressure bleeding tool according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  8.  
  9. Turn the ignition switch to RUN position, engine off.

  11. Connect a scan tool and establish communications with the ABS system.
  12.  
  13. Pressurize the bleeding tool to 206-241 kPa (30-35 psi).
  14.  
  15. With the pressure bleeding tool at 206-241 kPa (30-35 psi), and all bleeder screws in closed position, select Automated Bleed Procedure on the scan tool and follow the instructions.
  16.  
  17. The first part of the automated bleed procedure will cycle the pump and front release valves for one minute. After the cycling has stopped the scan tool will enter a "cool down" mode and display a 3 minute timer. The auto bleed will not continue until this timer expired, and cannot be overridden.
  18.  
  19. During the next step, the scan tool will request the technician to open one of the bleeder screws. The scan tool will then cycle the respective release valve and pump motor for 1 minute.

  21. The scan tool will repeat the step for the remaining bleeder screws.
  22.  
  23. With the bleeder tool still attached to the vehicle and maintaining 241 kPa (35 psi), the scan tool will instruct the technician to independently open each bleeder screw for approximately 20 seconds. This should allow any remaining air to be purged from the brake lines.
