Replacing brake fluid- activating the ABS pump

Anyone know if there is a laptop version of the 'dealertool' that Fiat would use to operate the ABS to pump to complete a brake fluid change?

Multiecuscan should be able to bleed the abs system you'd probably need to software a elm module and a adapter cable to connect to the abs system
You can get them all seperate or buy as a package from gederan

Thanks, I'm only going by what I can see on their website but the screen shot of 'Actuators' doesn't show ABS pump at all so I'm wondering if it can do it??

I were hoping for a system that uses/needs just one cable, the system that I use on my motorcycle does, that can operate the ABS pump via the OBD port only.

You can download a free version and it will allow you to see everything it can do in simulation mode so you can do a virtual run of all the features


Also mes does have a option to run with one cable called multiplexed version but this is a lot more expensive

Just found this system which does state "ABS Bleeding Function",...no idea if it's any good/better than any other system that's out there.

It's on the "Adjustments" section. Hydraulic unit bleed.

Description:

This procedure will flush the hydraulic lines of the ABS module. Perform the procedure after replacing the ABS unit, or when changing the brake fluid. Keep the brake pedal pressed during the entire procedure. The pedal will first sink to floor and then raise back to top.
Basically the procedure will open all drain valves and fill both accumulators with brake fluid from the master cylinder, then it will use the hydraulic pump to return all fluid back to master cylinder. This way the fluid will be cycled through all internal ABS hydraulic lines.
Before executing this procedure make sure that there is enough brake fluid in the reservoir and also loosen its cap.

Ah, thanks for confirming that this device can indeed do that.

I also have an Isuzu that will need it's brake fluid changed, it would be nice to find a 'universal' scan tool that could do both vehicles.
