01 Bravada "brake motor"

Unread post by Mike1252 » Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:58 pm

A parts store scanner said I needed an EBCU. I bought one that is connected to the EHBM (I'm guessing called the 'motor.). I doesn't look hard to replace the unit, but there are several brake lines screwed into it. What about bleeding these lines? A friend of mine who runs an "old-school" brake shop says he could bleed them manually, but is not at all certain that is how it's supposed to be done. He worries that if we do it wrong, there may be no brakes; and I'd need to have it towed to the dealer.
Words of wisdom? Caution?

a scanner is needed to bleed the brakes with 4wabs.

Thanks! Can you tell me any more about how the scanner is used in the bleeding process?

when you go to bleed the brakes there is a portion of the scanner that will tell the ABS module that you are going to bleed the brakes and allow the system to purge aid when you bleed the system.
