where is it and how much for a second hand one.... my brakes go to floor so far I've changed:

master cylinder
brake booster
brakes pads
bled brakes 5 times

only thing I have changed is the module... so anyone have a pic of where it is and what it looks like?

its under the left hand front fender, near the bumper. If you take that wheel off, you will be able to see brake lines go behind the plastic shroud. This is where the abs module is.

But, i reckon you should also check for leaking calipers and/or brake lines.

Cheers

as xf_xr6 said, first check that your brake lines arnt expanding when you put your foot on the brake and also have the caliper seals checked for leakage.

a new module will set you back a few hundy plus having it fitted and the brakes bled etc etc. your looking at a minimum of $400 and you cant even be sure that is the problem.

to be honest im putting my money on your brake hoses flexing, but if you want to change your abs module then go for it.

they're telling you to do the easy thing first - forget your ABS module for now!

It could be the ABS hydrolic pump!

The major parts of the ABS are in this link

I paid $200 for ABS pump, module, and 4 sensors out of a working car.

Take it to a brake specialist and get a quote, they could tell you what they think the problem is, and you can go from there, either DIY or book it in
