be careful beeding the brakes .the abs system does not allow bleeding via old methods of pumping the pedal,

Hi Peejay,

Pump the pedal a few times and it should come back up. Start the car and let the ABS gizmo do it's thing and it should be OK. If not, then there's something else wrong - like somehow air has gotten into the system. This shouldn't happen unless you popped a piston in the caliper or run out of fluid.

The first few pumps always go down to the floor to 'seat' the pads against the disk after prising the calipers apart to fit the new bits.

Hope it's all good.

Cheers
Gerry

Make sure that the brake mastercylinder fluid reservior is completely full before you start pumping the pedal.
It doesn't take much pumping for the fluid level to drop considerably.

Hi peejay. Have a look on the master cylinder fluid resevoir. There are instructions on how to pump up the brake pedal to deactivate the abs unit. If the pedal still goes down afterwards you may have to search on www.lcool.org
Otherwise it may mean getting a Toyota dealer to repressurise the system. Regards,Bob.
