Customer Question

2005 nissan maxims vdc light came on and brake light. I have no brakes. This after I was checking my brake calipers, I removed the bleed valve to check it. 2 holes on front valves and one on the rear valves. I first checked the front test drove no problem. Then I checked the rear calipers. Then no brakes and the vdc light came on. But also i live in maryland but just got back from 5 hr very rainy trip to north carolina. I had some traction problems during rough rain. Rain cleared up no problems

When you opened the valves, what exactly did you do after that?

I think I just checked the holes in the valves to make sure they were clear. The holes were clear then I replaced the valves onto the calipers

How did you bleed the brakes is what I meant.
