    Can anyone tell me how to use my mt2500 to get the air out of my abs box. I have the MT25001099 cartridge and the K6 key. I can get into the abs but there is no option to bleed.

    I ordered a tech 2, I will keep the red brick and try to figure out how to make it work, which I believe is the 7.2 or greater cartridge, and update this for anyone in the future to use. I believe the 6.5 I have will work on 98+, I will confirm that as well on my mothers 2000 Escalade.

    Please let us know how you like it. I've been thinking about buying one for a while now.

    I got the tech 2 in today, playing around I can see the automated brake bleed for 1998 but not when I type 1997. Not sure what i am doing wrong, everyone said you could do it for sure with the Tech 2 for 1997.

    I did find a "function test" feature, I am not sure if that cycles it or not.
