Hi .

If brake fluid will not come out the rear brakes to bleed then you will need a scan tool to bleed the ABS system, and if this does not work then you will have to replace the ABS module.

But i don't think it will go this far i have seen this all the time you just need to connect the scan tool go into service function bleeding
ABS DSC3 hydraulics, you can pick to bleed just the front or rear .

This system has to be used after master cylinder is replaced .

Need further assistance then please get back to me.

Hi George .

An automotive scan tool (scanner) is an electronic tool used to interface with and diagnose and sometimes reprogram vehicle control modules.from Engine management to ABS,Airbag etc .

In your case you will need a top level dealership type scan tool to check for ABS codes and bleed the system .
