Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.
Hi Your problem is the isolation valves inside the ABS hydraulic control unit are stuck. I recommend a fluid service bleeding each wheel at least 4 times. Then perform 3 panic stops from 45 mph to try and break it loose. If that fails then a new HCU is needed which requires a diagnostic tool to bleed. You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.Thanks Chris
