Is there a function in VCDS that will allow me to open all the valves in the brake system/ABS unit so I can do a complete flush and replace the old brake fluid that is in there?

This is less a question whether there's such a function in VCDS than, is there such a function in your ABS module?

What does the repair manual say about flushing your the brake system in that vehicle?

When I wanna cheat........

I open the respective bleeder in the test sequence of the output functions with VCDS assistance.

This is of course with bleeder routed and directed into proper vacuum and storage container to do it safe + clean.

Thanks Uwe. You are correct as usual! :)

Reading Elsawin I see no mention being made of operating the ABS unit to flush the brake fluid. In fact it very clearly states the following; "Bleeding brake system on vehicles with ABS is performed in the same way as on vehicles with a conventional brake system."
