Try Victor. I have a 95 850R, and it really is easy to remove and send it. He turned it around quickly and problem solved. Maybe he can help.

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.

Hi Douglas, The ABS warning light is indicating a fault with the system. The vehicle can be driven, but the Anti Lock System is not working. The best course of action is to take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and find out where the problem is. It is most likely to be with one of the wheel speed sensors, which may need cleaning or replacing. That is not to say that is the problem, only the most likely. Regards John

HI,pbs light stays on

The ABS light is on because you have a code stored in your ABS module. It is a good idea to bring it to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem. They can tell you precisely which wheel sensor is bad or which ABS component is faulty. There is one wheel sensor at each wheel, directly over the exciter ring at each hub. If you want to scan the code yourself, you will need a Ford Super Star II tester or an equivalent scan tool to access the ABS system. Take a look at the front and rear ABS notched rotors, and make sure they are not caked up with debris, oil or dirt because the sensors read these notches.

Re;- 2.5 Ford Cougar (2000) ABS and Traction Control warning lights stay on when driving normally.Presume its a fuse gone .Have checked aux fuse board in engine compartment and 60 amp fuse is ok . Can't...

Assuming you have right hand drive cougar, you can access the fuse box right under the glove box under dash. Use a torch and you will find a small pull down clip and when you pul it down it drops the whole fuse box. This is a common problem with Cougars. To my knowledge fuse is not the culprit, however its good to check. Most of the issues are related to ABS module. It is placed in the engine bay where it exposed to heavy vibrations (poor design) and some times the module will crack and sometimes it just electronic issue. Get the car scanned for fault codes and that will tell you what is the exact issue. If it turns out to be the ABS module you can get the module repaired if its not cracked or broken or buy a second hand one from wreckers if you can find one under $100 or $150. New one will cost a fortune. Let me know how you go, I can further assist in getting the module repaired, etc. FYI there is no need to remove or replace ABS unit if the ABS module is faulty. You dont need to touch it at all, just take out the ABS module (ECU).

Abs dash light on Volvo 850 is on, whats wrong ?

Volvo has had a lot of trouble with ABS control units. Yours will most likely need to be replaced. You can either replace it with an exchange unit from a Volvo parts supplier or send yours to BBA reman. in MA for repair.

It's your abs control module. Remove your abs control module and send it out to be rebuilt. It should cost you less than $100. Check out the offerings on Ebay.
