    Just finished installing new brake rotors and pads on my 2008 Expedition EL (145,000 miles).
    I bled the system thoroughly using the "Pump the pedal-crack the bleeder" method. The old brake fluid was tan in color and I bled until the lighter new fluid was pumping through. I did not notice any air bubbles or foam.
    The pedal is still lower and a little softer than I would like, not bad, just not great.
    Is there a way to bleed the ABS system myself or any other suggestions?
    Thanks

    if all you did was change pads and rotors you did not even need to open the hydraulic system. There should not be any air in the ABS system unless you induced it but still should just come out with what you are doing by bleeding at the calipers

    You could use the Forscan app to bleed the ABS.
