Welcome to the forum. Forgot to cap the brake hose? Consider taking it in for service. You won't be able to bleed it properly without a scan tool that can work the ABS.

The scan tool is for working the valves in the BPMV when the brake pedal stays soft despite manual bleeding. If your pedal is firm, it isn't necessary unless you're going for a complete fluid change.
