    Rear end swap

    So i swapped my rear end last night and it was a bitch!! long story short, kept the e-brake connected(disconnected from calipers) and had to strip the brake lines from the old rear and install on the new rear. my rear brakes seem like they just aren't engaging when i brake and the brake pedal barely moves but then sinks all the way down, i think i need to bleed the lines, correct?? but the fluid reserve, for the most part is full. Second issue is the brake light is on but the e-brake engages and disengages. bad sensor i think??? anyway, any info/opinion would help!

    yep you need to bleed the air out of the brake lines and calipers. Red brake light comes on with the ebrake, low brake fluid level, and with ABS failures.

    As far as I know, no you can't. The only tuning software out there I know about is for the PCM. The ABS stuff is a different computer (the EBCM).
