Automated brake bleed

Instead of going to the dealer I found a scan tool that will do the automated brake bleed to get air out of the abs. It’s called the maxicheck pro $204 on Amazon. Once you get it you will need to register on autels website and update it. Then hook it up and go.

I take it you have used this on your car? I was just looking for a scan tool of some sort that could do this without spending $1000.

For anyone else looking at this tool to perform the ABS bleed, I contacted the seller on Amazon and they told me this would not work on a 2017 Camaro.

OP, have you used one of these on your car?

sorry, i'm lost on its purpose.

Its needed to bleed air from the ABS block, it actuates the internal valves to aid bleeding. This is only needed to bleed the ABS and not needed to bleed calipers.
