Vehicle: 1996 Dodge RAM 2500 Pickup 8.0 V10 GAS

The disc brake hydraulic system can be bled manually or with pressure bleeding equipment. On vehicles with disc brakes the brake pedal will require more pumping and frequent checking of fluid level in master cylinder during bleeding operation.

Never use brake fluid that has been drained from hydraulic system when bleeding the brakes. Be sure the disc brake pistons are returned to their normal positions and that the pad assemblies are properly seated. Before driving the vehicle, check brake operation to be sure that a firm pedal has been obtained.

The following procedures may be...

Master Cylinder

Front & Rear Split Systems

When the brake pedal is depressed, both the primary (front brake) and the secondary (rear brake) master cylinder pistons are moved simultaneously to exert hydraulic fluid pressure on their respective independent hydraulic systems. The fluid displacement of the two master cylinders is proportioned to fulfill the requirements of each of the two independent hydraulic brake systems.

If a failure of the rear (secondary) brake system should occur, initial brake pedal movement causes the unrestricted secondary piston to bottom in the master cylinder ...

Brake System Bleed

The anti-lock brake system must be bled any time air enters the hydraulic system. It is important to note that excessive air in the brake system may set a primary pressure diagnostic trouble code in the control module.

Pressure or manual bleeding procedures can be used when bleeding the ABS system after hoses or brake lines have been disconnected. Bleeding the ABS hydraulic system is also necessary after replacement of the hydraulic assembly or wheel brakes. During bleeding procedures, ensure the brake fluid level remains close to the Full mark on the reservoir.

Accessing Diagnostic Trouble Codes

Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) Brake System
1992-95

To read diagnostic trouble codes, momentarily ground the diagnostic connector and count the number of flashes of the anti-lock indicator lamp. One long flash will indicate the beginning of the diagnostic trouble code number sequence, followed by short flashes as a continuation of the diagnostic trouble code. The long flash and short flashes must be counted together to determine a stored diagnostic trouble code. Note the following:
