I WANT TO BLEED THE ANTILOCK BRAKES

You can just use traditional brake bleeding procedures, while the engine is running, so that the ABS system is operating...the sequence is Right/Rear, Left /Rear, Right/ Front, and Left/Front. You should bleed each wheel about 8-10 times, monitoring the fluid level in the Master Cylinder. Under some unusual circumstances, the system will need to be Pressure Bled, to remove all the trapped air. You can also start a base bleeding by cracking the lines at the ABS module, and than finishing with the traditional wheel bleeding.
