Overview: 2003 9-3 needed r/r caliper replacement, and possible oversight allowed air to enter ABS via brake fluid reservoir.
Following replacement of r/r caliper, we bled the line until no bubbles were evident. When engine is off, pedal is firm, however, when engine is running, the pedal will sink slowly to the firewall, and a groaning noise is heard. Afterward, we noticed that the oil level in the reservoir was very low--and we think air was drawn into ABS lines. We re-bled r/r line with same result; then one by one did all the brake lines without improvement.
I have read turning ignition to "on" while bleeding will kick on ABS and expel any air caught in module. If true, can someone explain the process?
Thank you so much in advance!
