The ABS system control needs to be bled out from air by a computer. Have to find a shop capable of bleeding the ABS unit.


Having the same exact problem with me nissan frontier. It can only be two things, leak in the lines or air in the system. If there's air in the abs module it'll need to be blead by a dealership technician. The use a computer to open and close certain valves in side it to bleed it


The HCM has air in it, if you don't have an IDS-VCM to open the valve your wasting your time. System needs to be bleed.


Anyone can build a circuit board for UART serial protocol if your into electronics check out raspberry pi
