Bleeding the ABS System - Dial Up BEWARE

It seems as though threads in this Forum are like the seasons. You get a bunch of posts about vibrations, then automatic transmssion problems, then water leaks, then oil leaks, then lifter ticking, then EGR codes, etc., etc.

Now that it seems we're moving into "brake" season, I thought I'd contribute this. I downloaded this DIY years ago off of an NSX forum. The procedure is exactly the same for a Legend, except that the Legend only has three solenoids instead of four like the NSX.

Some things to be aware of:

1) When hooking up battery power to the solenoids, MAKE DAMN SURE that you're connecting 12v to the solenoids and not to the ABS controller. Examine the solenoid connectors carefully. The solenoid side of the connector will have the SOLID red and SOLID black wires. They will not have the striped trace. Please verify this with your FSM.

2) Don't run the pump for more than 20-30 seconds as stated by the author. You WILL burn out the motor.

3) When you pull the motor relay, you'll notice two of the female blade connectors are silver-colored, the other two are copper-colored. You'll want to hook up 12v to the copper colored connectors to get the motor to run. Don't worry about polarity.
CORRECTION Look at the male conectors of the relay. You'll notice the silver and copper colored male terminals. You'll want to hook up 12 v to the female terminals in the fuse box that correspond to the copper colored terminals on the relay.
