They say the Smart need be connected up to a Star machine to get all of the air out. ABS pump has to run and some normally closed valves probably need be open. ICM's WinStar regrettably does not yet have the capability to do this.
Above photo shows ABS circuit on a Honda Civic. I assume the Smart is very similar.
I think it will somehow be possible, without a Star machine, but with some clever tricks to fool the ABS unit such that ABS pump will run and internal valves be opened at will:
- Create sine waves using signal generators.
- Send signal generator output through an amplifier.
- Excite each wheel speed sensor using electromagnetic transducers (ET) driven by signal generator.
- ABS unit can be activated by reducing frequency on one wheel at the time. ABS pump will run, the internal normally close valve will open and the corresponding internal ABS circuit can be bled.
Could anyone with access to a Star machine kindly advise how bleeding the ABS unit is carried out?
