How can I get air out of the ABS module without scan tool? Do you. If we are to assume there really is air trapped in a chamber, you need to open that valve to let the air out, but there has to be brake fluid under pressure ready to take its place. Scanners will command the controller to run the pump or pressurize the fluid.
Scanners are used for that because it is much easier than the alternative. The computer will open each valve. That alternative is to unplug the connector, then apply ground and 12 volts to the two wires for each solenoid. That would take a long time and may not be very effective. First you need to tell me why you want to bleed the system so I am in the right frame of mind.
I have a number of tricks to get air out of any system without bleeding at the wheels. If you can get the hydraulic controller to kick in, let it keep on activating until the vehicle comes to a stop, but keep on holding the brake pedal down in the same position. Try very hard to never ever push the brake pedal more than halfway to the floor as that can damage a master cylinder from crud and corrosion if it is more than about a year old.
Wait like that for about ten seconds, then let the brake pedal snap back quickly on its own. While the valves are being pulsed, you'll be pushing brake fluid down to them, and if you are lucky, the air will come out of the chambers and float upward. The ten seconds is to let them float up as much as possible. Releasing the brake pedal quickly will make the brake fluid rush back to the reservoir and wash the air bubbles up with it.
Push it very slowly so the air bubbles keep on floating up. Release quickly to wash the bubbles up. You don't have to be concerned with which wheel s skid during the stop. Individual wheel valves only block fluid flow momentarily when activated in a skid.
Those wont trap air. That pedal stroking also works as a secondary method after replacing the master cylinder. There are wiring diagrams further down on this post that can help you activate the valves manually. Was this answer. I have a gmc dually 6. How can I manually bleed the abs pump or and module Was this answer. Here is a wiring diagram for the ABS BELOW to figure out which wires are for each solenoid, then apply 12 volts and ground to apply them, then do the normal bleeding.
YOU might be smart enough to figure out how to make that work, but I'm not. In normal operation during a skid, the computer pulses the various solenoids on and off very quickly, and for only a few seconds. With a scanner, the bleeding process is over almost as fast as you can push the buttons. If you were to apply 12 volts, I'd be concerned a solenoid could become overheated if it is kept applied too long.
Also be aware some solenoid-controlled valves are normally open, and they block fluid flow when applied, "block" valvesand some are normally closed, and open to pass fluid when turned on, "dump" valves. We don't know which valves to apply power to or if multiple valves have to be energized at the same time. Some engineer much smarter than us figured that out, then programmed their scanners to do it.
What you might consider is turning the ignition switch on while you're in the middle of bleeding. Most ABS Computers exercise the valves during the six-second self-test process when the yellow warning light is on.Gain extra benefits by becoming a Supporting Member Click here find out how!

And how do i know which i have? Front disc brakes? Rear drums? Fromt disc and rear drum. I have heard it is based on the GVW of the vehicle. I am replacing the brake calipers and thats where the question came. The only difference i am aware of in the calipers from the 70's trucks is the size of the banjo bolt.
I am sure there are some internal differences like the size of the piston or something like that. And it depends if i have a jb6 or jb7 brake system. Measure the width. The rear are two differents sizes too. I can't remember at the moment. Bill K. I think from having a couple half-ton Subs apart the JB7 shoes are like 3 inches wide, and the others narrower.
I know the one diesel sub I took apart I couldn't re-use any of that stuff because it was different from my truck. Those who can, do. Those who can't, criticize it on the internet. I checked the glove box, door jam, and under the hood for the build sheet but its nowhere to be found. The only thing in the glove box is a sticker that says something about not putting a camper in the bed of the truck.
When putting it all back together the calipers and pads were pretty snug fitting around the rotors.
What Is the Difference Between JB6 & JB7 Master Cylinders?
I am guessing this is just because the pads and rotors are both unworn and at their max thickness. I used the JB6 brake calipers because thats what they had in stock.General Motors places a service parts identification label on each of its vehicles. The label's exact placement on the vehicle is dependent upon the make and model. The service parts identification label identifies the part options, paint color codes and paint types.
The service parts identification label is a self-adhesive sticker. Depending upon the make and model of the vehicle, it can be located underneath the hood, inside the glove box door, on the inside of the rear door or on the inside of the center console. The service parts identification label is included on all General Motor vehicles that are model year or later. The service parts identification label contains a row of codes.
These codes correspond to specific vehicle production options, such as tinted windows. Option codes are either specific to an individual part or represent a group of part options, such as brakes.
The service parts identification label helps identify which replacement parts are necessary in the event of vehicle restoration and repair. General Motors technicians should be able to identify which parts or paint colors to use from the label. There is a master list that identifies what the codes stand for.

I fear this could have a sticker shock! Would love these pn my tahoe. Sounds like a complete change out upgrade. Pads, calipers and probably rotors. I will be calling my Chevy Service Advisor, within the hour?? This is awesome news. To sum it up, I really love my deep ocean blue Silverado, and I look forward to driving it daily, for many more years… I also look forward to the addition of the Brembo brake upgrade, and the knowing that my Borla equipped 6.
Wonderful Finally better brakes How many Rotors have to warp before they upgrade the rotors? If you just have a little play in the ball bearing hub it will wobble a bit and wear the rotor in an uneven thickness.
Many people mistake this for warp. It is either that or you dos not Ben the pads and ended up with pad material uneven on the rotor creating the pulse. Warp is generally not an issue and with floating calipers it is compensated for if it should happen.Log In or Create Account Optional. Log Into My Account.
