Many service procedures such as ABS pump replacement and brake bleeding require ABS Pump activation. Our Schwaben scan tool works perfectly for this. We are performing this on our 2008 E90 M3, and the procedure will be the same or very similar on most BMW models.
1: Switch the ignition on (do not start engine) and plug the scanner into the OBDII port
2: Select “BMW”
3: Select “BMW” again
4: Select “enter VIN”
5: Using the keyboard enter in the last 7 digits of your VIN
6: Select the vehicle that you are working on
7: Select “Control Units”
8: Select “Chassis”
9: Select the ABS system you have
10: Select “Component Activation”
11: Select “Pump Motor”
12: Press the “F3” Button to activate the pump
13: After about 5 seconds the pump will shut off automatically
14: Your ABS pump activation is complete
