There are two ways to bleed ABS Brakes on GM: Common GM ABS bleeding in its normal way and under the help of a professional tool like Launch CRP229.
Normal Bleeding procedure:
1 Open the front bleeder screw on the modulator. There are two screws, open the one at the front. Bleed the brakes by having another person gradually press on the brake pedal until all air is purged and clean fluid flows. Attaching a clear tube to the bleeder valve and placing the other end in a container of fluid helps.
2 Bleed the individual brakes, beginning with the brake farthest from the master cylinder. This is often the right front brake. Bleed the brake on the opposite end next (the left front if you started with the right front).
3 Test the brake pedal after all the brakes are bled. Once you are certain of a firm pedal, drive the vehicle at more than three miles per hour so the controller can automatically reset the system. Stop the vehicle afterward and bleed the rear brakes.
How to: GM ABS bleeding with Launch CRP229
1 Attach a pressure bleeder to the master cylinder reservoir and turn the ignition key to the On position. Pressurize the system to 35 pounds per square inch with the bleeder screws closed.

3 Bleed each wheel as CRP229 instructs you to. The pump will run and the release valve on each wheel will cycle for one minute. Afterward, CRP229 purges any extra air with one last 20 second cycling of the solenoids.
4 Relieve the pressure at the bleeder connected to the master cylinder and then remove it from the cylinder. Test the pedal’s height and feel it to make sure the pedal feels firm and all the air is purged.
