Did yours ever give you a disconnection message? When I start the process it will bleed the front right and then says it has lost connection with the ecu.

dbow20 Has anyone had success with bleeding the ABS on a 2014+ truck?

V8 WagonMan Jimmy07 You were absolutely right, it was the security gateway interfering with AlphaOBD.

I tried with a Z automotive bypass module I happened to have around, and It let me change tire size, led lighting etc. in a snap.
The only problem is the SGW module is mounted behind the radio, so I have to take the radio out to reach for the SGW, unplug it and plug the Z automotive bypass, do the AlphaObd thing and then reconnect the SGW and put all console back together.

It worked like a charm.

dbow20 I set the high discharge headlamps to yes and I think the flickering is gone. I will investigate more tonight when it’s dark. However, I think with that setting enabled the DRLs are the same intensity or brightness and the low beams when the lights are on. I don’t think it’s a big deal just an observation.

I didnt even think to ask you about this. Try the HID setting first like mentioned above. The LED low beam setting doesnt seem to do anything.

My LEDs did the same with DRL set as low beam. Only when the DRL was on and only when I installed my LEDs. With my factory halogen the DRL did not flicker. The fix for me was enabling 'high intensity discharge lamps'!

Look up OBDLink MX ($59), get an Android tablet or phone, down load Alpha OBD from the App Store.. if u have an 18 or 19, u need the security bypass cable

The target voltage for the DRLs is set at 7.4v, so that might be why the LED flickers. If you go under CBC external lights, step up the target voltage for the left and right side DRL and see if that helps.
