There's a particular method for properly bleeding the ABS unit after installation. It requires the use of a scan tool that can access the DSC module and cycle the valves open and closed to extract any air bubbles that would otherwise be trapped inside. I don't know if the ethos has this capability or not.
Also, you might want to track down a service manual for your car to be sure you're following this procedure to the "T."

Hi thanks for your suggestion i was thinking about using something like that to bleed so i prepared myself and bought this kit off ebay what a load of crp so anyway i put the pump back in bled the brakes again and light still there so i started it and with my self bleeder still connected to my tyre giving me the pressure i pumped the pedal while i went round again then the light did reset this time so not sure if it was a bleeding issue or whether this company never cleared the codes from this pump properly the first time? but its all sorted now but i would like to get this new software working but you need to be a computer programmer thats what you get for 26 off ebay cant expect miracles ey
