Well, my ABS unit actually went kaput @ 98K miles. Had that verified by my mechanic, whom I've used sine '89.
Had the unit disconnected. Amber light is on. Long as I don't slam on the brakes, I'm fine. Have new pads all the way around anyway.
My question: Can these units be rebuilt? Mine is NOT leaking or using up brake fluid.
Because I am hearing some real scary replacement prices of $1500.00 incl labor.
A USED one can still run around $650.00-700.00. Part alone.
Of course, even a mechanic you trust would love to sell you a new unit and make that $1.5K.
Love to hear what others here have done. I know I am not alone on the ABS unit failing. From what I've read, most just bypass it like I did because of the huge replacement cost.
