Bleeding the ABS brake system only on 1995 C/K trucks only, Help!!!!!!!!!!

Asked by Jul 31, 2013 at 10:13 PM about the 1995 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Extended Cab LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I understand that a very pricey scan tool is necessary when bleeding the brakes on a 1995 silveraro. Well after poking around on the web I read that without the scan tool you have to remove the two small dust covers on the Brake Pressure Modulator Valve body and push the two pins in to get all the air out of it  while bleeding the brake system. This was for the 1995 C/K trucks only. then I will get a full and firm brake pedal again. Could someone valadate this and offer any information they would be willing to share. Thanks in advance for any help you provide.    kadink (Ron)
P.S. I'm on afixed income and can't the price of the scan tool in order to cycle the BPMV or
pay a dealer because it's takes a while to do the procedure.

well with the ABS pressure has to accumulate in the accumulator for a time...do you have ABS? you can afford a 17 dollar OBD-II scan tool-

how in the world did you lose hydraulic pressure to the point where the accumulator had lost it's pressure? This I gotta hear~

Mr judge_roy and Mr andrew page 5E1-54 and page 5E1-55 of the 1995 C/K servie manual explains my situation and page 5E1-62 shows the tool # J 39177 I was referring to. And the scan tool has to have the ability to cycle the BPMV serveral times. Now I didn't mean to make a joke like you think I did, I was just looking for a little help.... I guess I miss dianosed the " CarGurus web sight.... Kadink aka Ron The release of atom power has changed everything except mans way of thinking. The solution to this problem is in the heart of mankind... If only I had known, I should have become a watch maker... " Albert Einstein "

You are so smart judge roy, you should have noticed that he was working on a 1995 Silverado which makes your OBII scantool worthless! I don't know how Kadink managed to get air in his system but I did it while replacing the wheel cylinders. Could somebody tell me how to get the air out please? I'm in a similar fix as kadink in that I can't afford to pay to have it done and an OBI scantool is way more expensive than Roy's.

Hello all i hope this helps anyone who has replaced brake lines on a 2000 chevy silverado 1500 abs system with out a abs scan tool. this worked fo me. i replaced the left + right + both master cylinder brake lines to the abs system under the cab. after replacing said lines. i raised the rear up off the ground. i then filled the master cylinder full. i pumped the pedal a number of times. i used my reverse brake bleeder and reversed both front brakes a bout 6 times. had pressure on pedal. started truck up put in drive both rear wheels spuned. shut engine off. went and reversed bleed back brakes. then restarted truck. put it in drive no spinning wheels. took foot off brake pedal both wheels turned. shut engine off. put rear wheels on lowered the rear back down on to the ground. started truck up brake pedal slight pressure but i have brakes. while holding brake pedal in drive gave gas truck kinda raised up on left side but didn't move any. i drone into town going up hill and down hill truck stooped every time. oh by the way my abs orange light goes off after a few seconds. same with my red brake light when i start the engine. i paid $2400 for my reverse brake bleeder. after doing this job i am sore and tired. but as long as this helps any one who cant afford high dealer or shops then it was worth it. thank you all who likes to do there own repair's.
