Default Autel Maxicheck Pro To Bleed Brakes

I have been fighting a soft pedal on my 05 ever since I had to replace the hard line from the MC to the ABS module. I have always suspected air in the ABS. I had my dealer look at it and no luck.
i saw the Autel online and picked one up. Does anyone have any experience with it? I have gotten it to work, and did the automated bleed and can hear and feel it pumping fluid, but have some questions.
When I run it, it runs through the procedures for the right rear only. Out of curiosity I closed the right rear and ran the same process on the other wheels and it did push fluid through. Has anyone else had this?
Any information is appreciated.
Thanks.

I have one. When I ran the brake bleed it did all 4 positions.

When you get it, the first thing you should do is register it and update the software. Did you do that?

I did not but will tonight. I was so happy to have it and try to fix, I got right to it.
When it does the auto brake bleed, does that include the abs as well since the pump is running?

Thanks for the help. Updated and was able to auto bleed all four. I did twice, going to do more as pedal hardened alot doing bleed with car off, but still feels soft when on. Maybe more air, i dont know, but maybe it is what it is at this point.

Think maybe a caliper is going? I am just trying to think of all possibilities.

I noticed that the auto bleed stops the pump before it has you close the bleeders. I always thought that it could pull air back, so I've always followed an automated bleed with a manual bleed.

Yes, i noticed that too and was going to do a manual bleed after.
I just replaced the rear brake lines today with braided (fronts done years ago), and it looks like maybe a small seepage on the left rear caliper. So i am going to replace them. I would rather do it all considering they are 15 years old, and tracked all those years.
Thank you for your help. Last question as i see you track too, what pads do you run? I have always done dtc 70 front, dtc 60 rear. Have you ever tried the Hawk HT 10 pads?

I haven't. I've been running Ferodo ds1.1 1 on the front and ds2500 and been happy with them,
