This article is available with the guide on how to use Thinkdiag obd2 scanner to bleed Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) (car model: Chevrolet Suburban 2015), if your brakes have been recently replaced, then you can go ahead and bleed them with this device.
Let’s go ahead and try Thinkdiag connected to the OBD2 port of the car.

Select “GM” or “Reset bleed”.
If we select GM, we could do all the GM and Chevy models, if we select a “Reset bleed” then we can do every model.
Switch On ignition.

Here we go Automated bleed.

That sound you are hearing now that’s the brake bleeding themselves. So they are sending pressure through the line to clear out all the air and you’re going to hear this about 4 separate times. So it’s going to happen on the front right.
And the front left, the back right and then the back left.
You can see that the notification is letting us know that the traction control was on and off.
And one we clear all four of these in that notification will be gone.
Automated bleed -left front.
Automated bleed -left rear.
Automated bleed – right rear.
Thinkdiag did a good job to bleed the ABS system.
