I plan on changing brake fluid soon is there any way to cycle ABS pump?
Valves inside ABS can stick if its never engaged or cycled. I don't have an ABS manual.
Is there an ABS connector that can be JUMPED to test operation?

The FSM (pg 16-4 to 16-9) lists the following sequence for brake bleeding; front caliper upper bleed valve; rear caliper bleed valve; front caliper lower bleed valve. There is no mention of cycling the ABS Modulator --presumably because in draining, refilling and bleeding the system all the old brake fluid is replaced. HTH

Haven't done mine yet... 5 years old almost, guess I should consider it. Did the coolant last month myself but the brakes will probably go in to be done...

OK thanks for help. Bleed system used a bleed tool only allows fluid out when pumping levers.
Simple design spring loaded with a check ball, fluid can only go out.
Changed coolant also took a few minutes to figure out how to remove right pocket, easy once you know.

Tires, fork springs and DR. P sliders next.Tires worn almost 6k now. PA. roads eat them tar and chip.

Weather nice today Allentown to Sunbury PA. today around 200 miles.
SEQ. river is very high. 2 feet below RT. 11 in some places.
