Were you drawing the fluid through the system of forcing new fluid in and pushing the old out? With ABS, it's important not to bleed the brakes using conventional methods (i.e. vacuum brake bleeder). The old fluid must be forced out rather than sucked out through the lines. When I worked at the dealer, they told us that the brakes had to be bled that way, and to be honest with you guys, I'm not exactly sure why. Anyhow, just my (and MB's) $0.02
