First let me extend you a hale and hearty welcome to the forum.First post on Sprinter Source, so hello everyone!
I do have access to a DAD, I'm not sure if it is capable of the same ABS function as the DRBIII
It flushes the system. I had two people. I don't remember the entire procedure....
Vic, does the DAD process completely flush the system? Do you still need two people? I suspect the process is fully documented in the service manual? Inquiring minds....

The ABS pump test feature you reference is under ABS test and calibration. Doktor A

I've never been able to get the DAD ABS bleed program to operate. I've always gotten the "does not communicate" error. This is strange as I can communicate with the ABS module to check for faults.
Even though you say I don't have ESP, I have been able to operate the DAD ESP bleed mode 3 times. Once earlier this year, and the other times this week while trying to get the bleed procedure down. Two of the times while the ESP bleed was functional I terminated the program after verifying noise coming from the actuators. The third time I proceeded to activate the second wheel (after the first wheel was done). While activating the second wheel I got the "does not communicate" message again.
I tried different scenarios to get the bleed to work. Once I pumped the brake pedal while activating the ESP bleed function. I was pumping the brake before the "does not communicate" error appeared. This created a bunch of error codes that required multiple scans and ignition ON/OFF sequences to clear:
CDI Diesel: P2209: CAN commu. error with ESP/ABS control unit.
Instru. Cluster: B1041: CAN commu. error with traction control unit.
CDI Diesel: P2333: Vehicle speed cruise control: wheel speed
Transmission: P2310 CAN commu. with traction
ABS/ASR: C1000: Traction system control unit
ESM: P1876: The wheel rpm from the ESP system are not available on CAN bus.
I guess it's up to other DAD users to verify if ABS bleed works for them. As I mentioned before, you don't have to do a bleed operation to to check for DAD bleed functionality. You should get a foot massage when pumping the brake pedal to verify correct bleed/actuator operation. I hope someone can get it working and I find out what I'm doing wrong. My wife just reminded me that one of my main objectives in purchasing the DAD was to flush the brakes.
Doktor A supplied the DAD units. Contact him.Do you guys know where I can get ahold of a new DAD install disk? ...
The DAD is Doktor A DiagnosticsWhat specifically does DAD stand for? Not my Dad, cause he's of no use here....
If you can believe this...Oh yeah, DRB too....
