After I replace the abs modulator and ecbm will I be able to bleed the brakes manually to get all air out of the system? I do not have an advanced scanner to use to do it. Thanks much.

Hi in order to bleed the brakes you need the tech2 scan tool. After replacing the hydraulic abs modulator you need the scan tool to do an abs service bleed. This service bleed cycle all the valves inside the new modulator and bleeds all air from it. A manual brake bleed will not remove the air from the new modulator and the brake pedal will be very poor. A tech 2 is required for this repair. Thanks

Would an Innova 3150 scanner with ABS capabilites do teh job in lieu of Tech 2?
Expert:  fordtech25 replied 4 years ago.
No it looks like it does not. Most cheaper abs readers just read codes and some pids. After doing some research it looks its capable of diagnostics only. Snap on versus scan tool will do the job. No cheap tools available for this job
