Item specifics



This listing is for the REBUILDING of Bosch 5.3 and Bosch 5.4 ABS modules for the Oldsmobile Intrigue, Pontiac Grand Prix, and the Ford Mustang (incl. Cobra and GT). The modules are also found in the Ford Mustang and Dodge Durango. This is a repair and return service. These modules commonly fail due to a factory defect, which causes ABS and other warning lights to appear. As a professional electrical engineer, I have identified the point of failure in these modules and developed a repair to both fix the problem and eliminate the failure mechanism. The ABS pump and control module are extremely expensive parts to replace [often exceeding the value of the car], so I am offering this repair service as a much more economical way to restore ABS functionality (a crucial safety component) and eliminate annoying warning lights. Check my feedback for references. I ship worldwide.

The symptoms of a failed module on an Oldsmobile Intrigue or Pontiac Grand Prix include:
- ABS warning light lit on dash
- TCS off warning light lit on dash
- PCS warning light lit on dash
- DTC error code C0550, EBCM malfunction (electronic brake control module)
- Inability to communicate with the ABS module through diagnostic software

If your ABS module looks like the one below, it is repairable!

What's happening is that the ABS electronic control module is losing power due to broken electrical connections. If the module is broken, these symptoms will usually occur intermittently and progressively: they will start out happening every once in a while and progress to the point where they are always happening. YOU DO NOT NEED TO REPLACE YOUR ENTIRE PUMP TO FIX THIS! All you have to do is remove the ABS electronic control module (ECM) and send it to me for repair. The ECM is not connected to the hydraulic lines of the brake system, so you can still drive your car while it is out for repair; you just won't have ABS functionality (which you don't anyway if your module is broken).

This listing is for ABS module repair on Oldsmobile and Pontiac cars, but these ABS modules are also found on other cars. Feel free to purchase this auction if your car is in the following list, your module looks like the one in the picture above, and you suspect a faulty ABS module. If you send a module in and it is not faulty or is not rebuildable, you WILL NOT be charged anything except for return shipping.

Why should you choose me to rebuild your module?
You should make an informed decision before you choose to have this important safety component repaired. I am an electrical engineer who specializes in the repair of Bosch ABS control modules. I can offer you a great price, the fastest service, the highest quality work, and individual attention. I have been offering this service for a long time, and value my reputation and established track record of serving my customers.
  • I am not a large commercial outfit. Most other repairers are large, generalized auto electronics rebuilders. They handle all sorts of work and have a lot of it. There is a reason I only list a small number of module rebuilds on eBay at a time -- I would rather devote extra time to each module than process as many as I possibly can. There is one company out there that is notorious for poor customer service. If you are thinking about buying from a rebuilding company, search their record with the BBB first!   I am a Bosch specialist, and these Bosch modules are all I do. I have developed a highly specialized repair process and know exactly what to do to repair and upgrade your module - there is no guesswork involved. I fix it, test it, and send it back out to you the next day or sooner. Customer service is my #1 priority.
  • Because I only work on this specific module, I have the fastest turn-a-round time in the business. Often I ship modules back out the same day I receive them. I only repair 4 or 5 modules a week, so when I receive yours, it is always going to be top priority. I will NEVER send you a module different from your own without informing you. Others keep core modules on hand and ship them out when yours comes in. It is extremely important that the original module be put back in the car for proper operation without software recoding. Feel free to mark your module before you send it to me.
  • Because I'm an individual and not a large company, you get to work and talk directly with me (the person rebuilding your module), and not a customer service representative or 1-800 number. I strive for the best possible customer service.
  • Quality of repair: I'm a degreed electrical engineer with years of experience in electronic systems. Customers have sent me modules repaired by other firms, and I have been shocked at their quality of work including cold solder joints, damaged internals, and glued together components. These are highly delicate electronic devices and I treat them as such. I use specialized equipment and chemicals in my lab that I have selected and designed uniquely for this repair. There is a common method of fixing this problem (making the lights go away) used by rebuilders where they remove the bottom cover and short two pins together. This is absolutely the incorrect way to fix the problem and will eventually ruin the module. I have seen another rebuilder whose repair technique involves drilling large holes inside the module. I do not drill holes or otherwise deform the module. Another rebuilder uses silver epoxy (glue) to restore connections, which works for a little while but then crumbles to dust. I do not use electrical epoxy.
  • The issue of warranty. If yours doesn't work for some reason, I'll give you your money back. You can send it back to me at any time, and I will examine and repair if necessary for no charge. You do not have to go through the trouble of filling out warranty return forms or paying restocking fees; just call me up and we will work something out. I will always help my customers to the best of my abilities. The problem with the 'warranties' issued by the commercial outfits is that it is so easy for them to get out of the warranty obligations. They are not installing the module in your car. They are just fixing it and sending it back to you. It is so easy for them to say that it was damaged in shipping or that you installed it incorrectly. Don't get fooled into paying more for a 'warranty.'
  • The issue of price. I spend about 2-3 hours of my time processing, fixing, testing, and shipping each module. Because I'm not a big shop, I don't have nearly as much overhead and can offer lower prices and can spend more time with each module. Some shops charge you $50 or more just to examine your module even if they determine that it's not repairable. I will NEVER charge you anything for an examination fee. Since I have started offering this service to the VW/Audi community, the big shops have lowered their prices. Just keep in mind that these shops were the ones who used to price-gouge and charge $300 if you choose to go with one of them.
  • There are lots of imitators in the marketplace. Be wary of listings with poor grammar, copied wording from other listings, firms who change their name every year, or abnormally low prices. I have been selling rebuilds on eBay consistently for years without playing pricing games.
  • I am currently enrolled in medical school pursuing an M.D. (doctor of medicine) degree with intentions of one day practicing as a surgeon. My life is school and ABS modules. I bring to you as my customer the same degree of dedication and professionalism that is required of the medical profession. By choosing me to rebuild your module, you are helping me pursue my dreams, and I will go out of my way to show you how much I appreciate your support.
  • I give a discount to active duty US military. Please email me for details!

Once you pay for the auction, you will need to send me your module for repair. You will need to remove the module from your car or have a mechanic remove it for you. Follow the removal instructions below.
Make sure you package the module well (press duct tape against the bottom solenoids to prevent movement and wrap the module in bubble wrap).
I will repair it within 24 hours and send it back to you. Upon receiving it, you will re-install it and the ABS lights should go away. You may need to clear out all the old DTC codes (usually not necessary).

Removal instructions:
The module is located behind the air cleaner (intake) housing on the right side of the engine bay in the rear; you may need to remove some parts to access it.
Disconnect the large electrical connector in the front of the module (move white locking tab to left)
Remove the 6 Torx T-20 screws holding the module onto the ABS pump.
Pull ABS module off of ABS pump and disconnect the smaller rear connector.

Please make sure that you have a BOSCH 5.3 or 5.4 module before you pay for this service!

If your ABS module looks similar to the one in the picture below (yours may be smaller/narrower and have a black bottom), then it is repairable.

If your module looks like this, I can repair it!

Please email me for more information before buying! If your module has been previously repaired or you have attempted repair yourself, please email me BEFORE buying. I repair failed DIY attempts all the time!

Warranty: I offer a DOA warranty, meaning if you get it and for some reason it doesn't work, you can send it back and I will refund your money.

Disclaimer: The buyer assumes all risks associated with removing, installing, and usage of a remanufactured ABS module.
