In searching for brake bleeding procedures references are made to "jumping the ABS relay" and "using a testbook" to complete the procedure. While jumping a relay may be fairly obvious to some it is not easy to find a procedure for it; if you want to avoid the expense of the testbook, here it is:

Find the ABS relay, on the Discovery 2 it is the first large relay in the hood box, R10. Remove it. The relay will have two large male connectors and the socket has two large female connectors. With the engine off but the ignition switch on, bridge the female connectors and the ABS pump comes on.

I constructed a simple bridge using two wires, two male connectors, and a momentary switch. This way I can run the pump when I want. If you make the wires long you can run it from under the car or in the car.

Or just bleed them normally. Unless you remove the ABS block there's no real reason to "bleed" the valves. If you really want to, find a big parking lot, and activate the ABS by jamming on the brakes. The tiny amount in the valve bodies will mix with the new.

Dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything. Americans must break out of that bubble and seek truth.

Then do the jam on the breaks thing. Works just fine.

Suit yourself, It’s a $3 switch, for those of us who don’t want to have to move the damn thing to finish brake bleeding.
