What is a abs modular on a Escalade Cadillac?

Jesse, The module will not stop fluid to rear brakes, a bad master cylinder will,leaking lines, air in brake system, faulty metering block if equipped, collapsed flex lines or pinched brake line faulty caliper or brake cylinders,etc. will cause the possible feeling of no rear brakes.
(ABS Module components) the ABS speed sensors and the ABS control module . When the brake is applied, the ABS control module reads the speed data from the speed sensor and sends the correct pressure to each wheel to prevent any wheel lock up, eg. sliding/skidding Links below have more info.

Buddy of my has a 1990-96 or so jeep cherokee that has a problem with the brakes ...something about electronic module controlling a hydralic module ...something like the dealership recalled them back in...

Part you're probably looking for is the ABS pump motor or pump motor relay.
Personally though you'd probably be better off checking the line routing for a non abs vehicle and copying it, eliminating the abs system. (scrapyard is a good place to look for "hard" parts and to actually see how lines run, but do use new lines).
The abs system functions just like "normal" brakes when the pump fails, so, it should be ok to drive it that way unless there is something else wrong (leaks etc)

The abs brakes are starting to stutter in my 96 lincoln towncar. i hope it doesn't cost too much to fix because it's my daily driver with only 90,000mi.

check fuses to make sure abs pump is working properly.but at 90,000 miles you probably need new brake pads
not expensive if you know a good mechanic

Brake pedal goes too far to the floor on initial application, pumping brings the pedal up, bled several times

Sounds like an internal leak in the master cylinder, an external brake fluid leak (such as a leaking brake line), or extreme misadjustment or binding of the calipers or drums. Any could be the case, and you can eliminate the last 2 rather easily. Do you see any sign of fluid coming from any of the brake lines? If not, move to adjustments. Check the calipers for bound up caliper pins and if equiped with rear drum brakes, the adjustment and condition of the rear shoes. After that, go right for the throat and replace the master cylinder. Be sure to bench bleed it before you install it, and if you have ABS, make sure you also bleed the ABS system, OR if you can't bleed the ABS system have the new master cylinder ready to install, and remove the brake lines as quickly as possible from the old master and have a friend hold thier fingers over the ends of the lines. I do this quite a bit at my shop, and it's VERY rare that I actualy need to bleed the ABS after replacing a master cylinder if little to no air gets in the brake lines.

Brake fluid leaking from ABS distribution block

You have to replace the master cylinder because the fluid that leaks from it is getting into the brake booster and compromising the seals. So you can probably get away with the booster and cylinder. Unless the ABS unit is a part of the either of the affected parts, or isn't working properly, you can leave it alone. ---------------------
A fluid-distribution system includes a plurality of fluid-distribution nodes with three-way ports attached to bleed/flush lines and alternate ports attached to vacuum lines. A first pump is used to draw new brake fluid from a new fluid container, push it through the manifold and ports, and through the bleed/flush lines. Fluid flow through the ports is selectively controlled by a computing device. In this manner, a vehicle's brake system including individual brake lines and ABS systems, may be flushed in a prescribed sequence. The vacuum lines are connected to a second pump via alternate ports of the sequential control valve manifold and may be used evacuated air and contaminated brake fluid from the vehicle's bleeder valves or master cylinder. Additionally, the bleed/flush lines may be connected to the alternate ports during priming or purging of the system. This also facilitates storage of the bleed lines as it prevents brake fluid from spilling and prevents air from entering the system. thanks.

Abs light on dash is lit brakes are good

Did some research and found that the module that connects to the ABS pump (next to battery) to be the problem. ISUZU wanted $3,200.00 to fix it. Bought one off of a wreck for $146.99 (LOL, yep, $146.99). Removed battery, disconnected the large cable going to the ABS, unclipped the 3 brake line clips on the top of the fender so the ABS pump could be removed and swapped the electronic modules- did not have to penetrate the brake lines at all. Took me 20 minutes. Restarted Trooper and ABS light went out.

Speedometer,mileage does'nt work,abs,traction,brake lights r on

no it does not; this is a massive short in the electrical system and, requires the services of an auto electrician like myself.
take the car in to an ASE certified auto electrical shop and, stop spending money on temporary fixes
the technicians can read the schematics and, fix your car right
