ABS Valves Cycling

Hi, new here, so not sure what's possible!
Can someone tell me if it's possible to open/close the ABS valves with FORScan to allow a complete bleed of the braking system?

Hi and welcome.

Yes, ForScan offers an ABS Bleed service procedure. Install the latest version, and connect your adaptor to the car, and play around with what's possible. ForScan is now becoming the "go-to" tool for modern Fords. If your car/van is not supported fully, post it here and hopefully the creator of ForScan will add functions later on.

i urgently need the "ABS Service Bleed" function for the Mondeo MK3.

My Hydraulic block is still full of air after bleeding the brake system.
The problem is that i have absolutely no pressure at the pedal, so i can´t drive to Bosch service or something else.

My Car is a:
Mondeo ST220 1. Facelift
Nov. 2003

thanks and best regards

I have the same issue. My ABS hydraulic block was faulty and I had to exchange it. Now I could really use such a function.

The current forscan version 2.3.4 beta only has an ABS "On Demand Self-Test". When started, it sounds like it is doing the right thing for a short time. Could this test be used as a simple "ABS Service Bleed" function, or is it a bad idea to constantly trigger this test?

My car is a Mondeo MK3 Nov. 2003 turnier.
