Did you just have some brake work done ?


Don't forget to bleed the RABS valve, if you got air in the RABS unit it can cause the problem you are having, the RABS unit has a bleeder on the side of it.

2 out of 2 people think this is helpful.

Where is the RABS valve>


Frame rail drivers side, just past the bend in the rail.

Mine Looks like this, no bleeder 1994


Then energize it as you bleed the brakes by turning on the key.


The peddle is only spongy when the truck is running.
