Hi. Have you gone back to trying traditional bleeding of pumping the pedal, and holding it while someone opens one bleeder at a time?

any thing does not work at all. i have tried every thing, i found on line it has to done by scanner. I do have the scanner, the fluid does not travel from reserver to the caliper, i have small repair shop. this first time ever seen in my live, i have i tried the air bleeding by scanner, when connect the scanner the abs pump does turn on and it shoes me what to do fL and RR then bleed and FR and RL to bleed I followed that but still fluid does not reach to caliper, the car came in to shop just fine it needed new front pads and calipers.
