    abs module diy fix?

    is there a way to fix the abs module yourself?i know i can send it away and get it done for Ł100 but if its just soldering surely it can be done at home?

    Check Vagcom. It may just be a code that needs clearing down once you've refitted the ABS ECU. I cleared all my codes when I re-fitted my fixed unit just as matter of course.

    before i had a had a go at fixing it the abs would work sometimes but not often,now the light is on all the time and no abs but the centre display shows no (!) flashing all the time.seems funny its not giving me the warning with the abs light.

    if your getting an error on your LCD dash then your gonna need a new brain. easy job to do yourself. the abs light on the cluster prob means you also have a abs speed sensor gone as well. Again you'd be better of VAGCOMing the car to see what it says

    got a laptop?
