I have a 2000 Dodge Durango with an ABS system. Earlier this week, I realized that one of my wheel cylinders had a leak, and I ran out of brake fluid (good thing it was not while driving). Anyways, I have replaced the wheel cylinder, and I have bled it.

That being said, I believe I heard somewhere that when an ABS system runs dry, it needs to be electronically bled to get all of the air out of the system. Am I remembering this correctly?

Thank you for your time.
